First Friday Photo!

I loved the clouds over the lake as the sun was rising.

I'm going to attempt to make this a regular feature with the photo being posted on my blog at 9am central time every Friday. I won't always be able to post a link on Facebook right away, but if you come to my blog, you'll be able to see the photo before everyone else!

How much?

Another piece done. I had fun making this one and I really like the way it turned out.

How much would you pay for this necklace?

For my man...

Since Bryan is so supportive, I decided to reward him. He's made the comment a couple times, "too bad there's not any jewelry you could make for me..." Well, I did a little research and found there was something I could make for him. By sticking with earth tones and opaque beads, this is what I came up with. 
(Yes, I made him take his shirt off. He was wearing a bright yellow,  Michigan shirt that just didn't go with the necklace.)

Basketball Beauty

This is what I'll be wearing tonight when the MU women take on Syracuse. I decided I needed something to wear to basketball games, so I designed these!

Pink Hearts

I made this one last week. It's very simple, but I really like it. What do you think?

What I made for Christmas, Part 1

This year I did a lot of homemade gifts. I feel like putting time and effort into something shows my love for friends and family way more than just buying something from a store. (Not to knock buying things, I did that, too!) I was just feeling in my creative mood as I have been the last several months and I had ideas. 
Now that Christmas is over and the gifts have been given, I can tell you about them!
The first idea came from having an excess of wooden blocks. See, I needed them for the escort card holders at my wedding (maybe I'll do a post on those later). I went online to find some at Joann's. If you want to repeat this craft, you might want to note that even though the listing for the blocks says they come in packs of 4, they really come in packs of 13. So since I needed 36 blocks, I ordered 9 packs. I ended up with 117 blocks. Oy.

After the wedding I had the idea to make ornaments for the kids of my friends and family. Who doesn't like a memento of their children a…
