Welcome to my blog-I hope you enjoy!


The group "Art For The Creative Mind" is having a Christmas Pennant swap. You are to choose a word and make the pennant using that word. I choose the word believe.


I made a fun necklace and earring set today. It was so enjoyable to just play around with found treasures.


I love mermaids!! So I made these to hold jewelry. Also the fork is twisted so it can hold a note. The mermaid images are from Artchix Studios. I used candle stick holders-using a wooden dowel. I drilled two holes in the fork so I could attach the mermaid to the dowel with nails. I also used large nail I painted and used paper to cover the nails.


Artchix Sister-Site has an on going fat pages each month. There are different colors to create with each month and November's is turquoise.


The girl faces are from Paper Whimsy. I love these old pocket watches-pocket watches have a special place in my heart. My Grandfather always used one with a chain that attached to his pocket-so he would not lose it.


Just had to made one more for a friend. This time of year is so much fun.


I found some salt and pepper shakers at Good Will over the year and thought this would be a quick and cute idea for the Holiday House this year. I finish these three and have several more to finish. I run out of wire, so need to go out to get some more.


My button snowmen are already to hang on a tree or you can wear them. So easy to make. I used vintage buttons-wiring them together and adding the glass bead that already had a face face and a carrot nose. I used a large black sequin and a black glass bead for the hat-twisted the wire on top for a hanger. Added string around the neck for the scarf.
This snowman is about 3" tall
These snowmen are about 2" tall.


I put this charm bracelet together and it was a lot of fun finding lots of little items to add to the bracelet.

Three Angels

At last my angels are finished. They are 16" to 18" tall not counting the wings.
These are the bases for my angels. I got these at a craft store, they were for potted plants.
I bent the legs up and sanded and painted them gold. I used paper clay to made the bodies and added porcelain heads. I used pipe cleaners to attach the hands. I wrapped lace around the arms to give them a shape.
Then the fun begins-dressing them. I used some vintage lace and linens and some newer item to finish them.
In the base I added a bird nest, glass beads for eggs and birds.
What do you think of them?
