New Bangle

This is the second bangle that I've created using an unfinished wood bangle as the base. This one was made with paper strips, ribbon, fabric flower, tiny beads and a bird sticker that I've adored. The inside was painted blue with a pearl finish. I'll be listing this and the other bangle in my earlier blog in my store one of these days :)

Fashion Tip Tuesday ... Necklace and Ahpeele

I love this Asian Steam Cloud top from Etsy seller Ahpeele. I would love to own it to pair up with my favorite jeans and my blackberry necklace. Or maybe the chunkier Black Onyx Necklace. Hmmm... daydream decisions. I enjoy browsing Ahpeele's store frequently and have many favorites in it... take a look!

This Weekend's Creation

Hi! I made something completely new and different from anything that I've made before. I had great fun experimenting and have tons of ideas lurking in my head for more of these. This is my first.
I made this on a wooden bangle, cut strips of paper, used Mod Podge... lots of Mod Podge, painted the inside and did a bit of sanding. It was fun! I hope to create more and put them in my store soon.

Waddya think?

Favorite Things ... Childhood Memories

I don't hold onto many things but for some reason, I have held on to this through countless moves and I still have it! This was the lightswitch cover that my mom put in my baby room.

It will be going into my studio as soon as I can fix the lightswitch.

I put it in Amelia's room when she was a baby too!

Friday Special

Bonjour little Friday. You are so reliable! You always follow Thursday... you always bring hope of good days to come... you are such a noble leader for that silly Saturday who always follows you.

OK... it's late, I'm tired and feeling a little goofy so I thought I'd sit down and prepare the Friday special for you!
Free earrings with this necklace! I'll throw in a pair of Swarovski glass pearl earrings in white, on oxidized sterling silver earwires with the purchase of the necklace shown. You can have 8mm up to 12mm pearls... just say the word and they are yours.

Have a great day... please!

Fashion Tip Tuesday ... Necklace and a purse

I thought I'd feature another Etsy seller's creations with one of my peices again this week. I love the handbags that loopiforyou makes and thought this one would look great with my Red Mille Necklace. What do you think? Cute or what? :)
