Black Necklaces



I have been sorting through my jewelry and made 3 necklaces. One I gave away before taking a picture of. It was my favorite with turqouise and silver. You can tell I love black.

This is a tea bag holder that I am making for some friends for Christmas.
Makes a great Christmas gift.
The saying inside is

On Christmas Day,
At Half past three,
Have yourself a cup of tea.
I'll think of you
You'll think of me.
A wonderful Christmas it will be.

Flower Card


Well I have been away for awhile. Working on Christmas presents. Can't post because then they wouldn't be a surprise. This is a card that we made at Stamp Camp a few years ago which I absolutely loved. Haven't had the heart to give it away. A friend bought this stamp set and thought she would enjoy this card.

Well today I finished up 2 recipes for a swap that I am in. Also fixed some jewelry for a co-worker. Also working on curtains for my nephew's family. I am anxious to get started with my cricut but kind of intimidated and don't know where to start. Maybe tomorrow I can try a few things.

Scarf


I had 30 minutes before Dancing with the Stars so I made this scarf for Marsha's dog to wear to doggie school. Rock really liked it.

Christmas Card




Well this is my first Christmas card. Silver embossing on silver paper. The bottom doesn't show up but it is a strip of velvet paper. I think the embossing would of shown up better on a blue card stock. Have to try that next.

Day 1 of blog






So I thought I would start a blog with all the projects I work on. Kind of a scrapbook online of all my projects. The first picture is a necklace and bracelet I made to go with a jacket I bought at Coldwater Creek. Next are 2 cards that I am going to need this week. Then I made 2 recipes cards (6 each) for a recipe swap that I am in through Splitcoaststampers. I send in 6 recipes and I get 5 different recipes back (One goes to hostess). Fun and I get alot of recipes back. Now I am off to fix dinner. We will see if I keep it up.
