Here are a couple of handmade linen stockings Debbie Hodge  gave me.  I added a couple of large shell buttons with a tie.

Pink Trees

 I had these large cone about 19 inches high-so used boas by going round and round with some hot glue.
Quite and very easy.

A Little Bit Of Christmas

 I found this deer in Good-Will-he was is sad shape-I sanded him and filled in holes with air drying paper clay. Than painted him-added german glass glitter-made a wreath smaller to fit his neck-added some silver balls-
 made a very large bow and green rhinestones for eyes
wooden stocking blanks-painted than-erman glass glitter and some tacs & bows

A Few Hearts

 The western parts are tin cut outs, that I used for the inside of the metal hearts-after I attached paper to the insides and to the backs.  On the back I added a stamped word.

 The images are die cuts. I attached paper to the insides and than attached the images.
I added images also to the backs.


 Paper Whimsy had a class with Laura Roberts where we learned how to create this lovely box and angel pin using a key for the base.
 I made a few more pins as gifts.
Just love these thanks Paper Whimsy and Laura.

O' Christmas Trees

 I made
these using part of the handle of a knife.  I cut them off and polished and sealed them.

 I beached and colors some of the trees-using white glue on the branches and added glitter.  I glued them in the knife handle added a ribbon for hanging.  Added a bow

Watch Cases

I put these together for the Holiday House Sale.  I love using old watch cases to make picture frames out them.


I found these plates at Michael and turned them into bracelets.

My Little Bird

 I received a second place ribbon for my little bird at our Palatka Art League members show.
 He is a small wooden bird that I covered in embossed metal.  Plus I added some filagee metal also.
He also made it in our local news paper.  So happy to have placed.  It is the first time I entered one of my pieces.

Candle Anyone

 I had this iron candle holder and painted it with many different colors to get this color.  I added a glass bowl for the candle to go in with a little bling

Necklace Using A Clothes Pin

I used the springs from a clothes pin to make these necklaces and earrings.
I just removed the springs from the clothes pin and added the bead.  I think they are kind of neat.

More Jar Lights

 Here are some more mason jars I use the mirror spray paint on the insides afar spraying a little water inside.  I wanted them to look like mercury glass.  After they set to dry for a couple of day I sprayed with a sealer.  Added one of those battery candle light inside.
These were made by painting whit glue inside and sprinkling glitter inside.  Let dry and then sealed with clear spray.

Four Top Hats

 The hats are paper macho, that I painted and distressed.  The googles are swimmer's, which first painted with paint for plastic 9let dry for about a week) then painted and painted and the distress.  the lenses I use ink (one drop) and used my finger to smooth around.
 Than I embellished with lots of different things.


Another necklace for our Holiday House sale during the holidays.


The silver is cut from a silver tray, filed smooth and polished.

Fairy Lights

 I used white glue water down a little on the insides of the jar.  Than added german glass glitter-let dry and added the battery light to the inside.  With the light I wrapped wire around with a handle to hang on the top of the jar, so it would be easy to turn it on by putting it out.
