Life is Like

A box of chocolates... 
And you really never know what you are going to get.
Recently gifted to me was this sweet box by Deb.
She thought it would be perfect for the 
Chocolate themed bracelet that I made. 
I think she is right. Don't you?
Thank You!

I'm using this post to share in the Pink Saturday.
Which I haven't done in awhile.
It will be fun to visit the other"pinkies"!
Thanks for stopping by.

Cards for a Friends

An unexpected surprise came to me this week. 
I had two different friends request that I 
make some cards for them.
I was delighted and honored to fill their requests.
The first two were for an engagement and an anniversary.
I neglected to to take a picture of them 
before she came to pick them up.
Then I got a call from one of the the friends 
that she given the cards to.
And she wanted 3 cards for her family. 
So this is what I created especially for her. 
The smaller cards are done with her color requests

Scarf Pin for Mom

More than likely she will not be wearing this with any 
scarf. But she can attach it to her beach bag.
The ice skates are to represent the many years 
she lived in Michigan. 
Not to mention both of her kids played on 
travel hockey teams.
My brother was really good! Me, not so much.
The Dolphin is to represent the recent decade 
she and my dad have lived in Florida.
The "M" is for the first initial of her name and for mom.
And the rest are just random charms.
One reminds me of a snowman 
and Mom loves them.

Bracelets and Pendants

Tinkered around with the Vintaj metal 
embossing folders for this heart Pendant.
Added a Tim Holtz Idea-o-logy vintage keyhole 
and used some of the Alcohol inks.
Then using this pattern I found 
at Art Beads
I made my version of it. 
 I followed the pattern requirement for the number of seed beads
for one of the bracelets.
The other I used less seed beads to see how much shorter
 I could make it with out loosing the design.
About 1/4 of an inch.
These two bracelets are made of
Mill Hill antique glass seed beads,
 flat sided freshwater nugget pearls,  
mat tila beads, gold tone toggles.
Loving the earthy color.
And this one I use a pale purple nugget pearl
with a silver toggle.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hope Tag

Using one of the
sheet from Moonlight Journey, 
I created this Winter Tag.
It was fun to use all sorts of punches and dies.
Diamond, gold and tinsel glitter, Lace 
 and beaded trim.
For me, my Hope is that the 
winter goes by quickly.
