Change is good

My oldest son is leaving tomorrow for Basic Training and we are so proud of him! The smile on his face is priceless. He made the decision and  we will support him 100%.

I miss him already

SPRING NESTING'S


Few of my latest pieces and working on three more birdhouses today.


 I am always looking for practical ways to display my product at the shows. I had this wire screen for the longest time, it fits perfect on this frame. 
Now I have a place to display my greeting cards.
 This is a collage that I made to show some of the items that I will be bringing at The Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks.

My latest pieces

I worked on this necklace on and off for the last few weeks.
Then it happened! and now it's done. I am really happy with this one.....
available on my etsy
until the show in two weeks.

I loved adding rhinestones to the velvet, I am not sure if I have seen this done before.

This necklace was so much fun to make, considering that I didn't know how to make a bezel and didn't have all the right tools. 

A new sign is born! Just for the next event at The Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks "Spring Nesting's". I am always afraid to draw anything. This was fun to make also.
