These are pieces I made for the Rebel Rabbit Craft Fair.  I think I finally have a good understanding of using stencils.  I was so happy that everything I made turned out really great.   The next two weeks I will be busy getting everything I need for this craft fair.  Since this is my very first one, there is lots to do to make sure I have everything I need.  Luckily Craftster and many other sites have...

I’ve been spending time trying to organize my art room.  It’s been a disaster for way too long mainly due to lack of storage.  I tend to be a bit of a pack rat, so I’m always running out of room to store my treasures.  I got new shelves about a month ago and now I’m just trying to carve out time to be in that room and to put it into order.  That is one reason for the lack of new...

My good friend got me a subscription to Craft magazine for my birthday.  I had wanted to get this before, but I never felt I could cough up the money for this expensive magazine.  When I got it home, I read it cover to cover and fell in love.  I kicked myself for not getting it previously and can’t wait to get more.  I liked the broad categories of crafts offered and there were plenty of ideas I want to try...

I love the pieces above.  The top piece is several inches long. I also think these pieces turned out well.  The bottom two will made into...

Necklaces by Request


Posted on May 29, 2007

A year or so ago, I made my mother-in-law a necklace with amethyst beads.  She liked the necklace so much that she requested more necklaces in different colors.  I’m always up for a project and was happy to oblige.  From the beads I had on hand, I made her a Rose Quartz necklace (left) and an Aventurine necklace.  I gave her the necklaces this past Saturday.   She loved them! Here is a close up of...

Of course every good holiday celebration is accompanied with gifts.  My mom out did herself this year.  She presented me with these two professionally framed pictures.  I drew these images when I was four.  She took the images and embroidered them onto black fabric.  They are just stunning.   I can’t believe how great these turned out.   I just love them.  What an amazing...
