Memorial Photos Pins and Pendants
Since Ben died I have found several ways to keep his memory alive. I've had such a tremendous response to these new pins. They can be worn either with a pin back or it also has a loop on the back to hang from a necklace. The photo is transferred to the glass and then securely glued into the bezel. They are available in my Etsy shop. Link is above.
French Knots Needlework - I Love Embroidery!
I LOVE embroidery and for some reason I especially like French Knots. A lot of people think they are hard to do and it does take some practice but I find them relaxing to do while watching TV or riding in the car. Here are a few pics of my knot Pins, some of them are available in my Etsy shop. All are done on a wool base with DMC Pearl Cotton thread, backs are finished with a layer of wool, hiding the pin back and stitching on back. (see last pic in gallery)
My love for Gnomes and Fairies ♥ ♥ ♥
I LOVE Gnomes and Fairies! Here are some projects I did, the fairy and the pincushions are for sale in my Etsy shop. The Fairy Tree Door was made by my hubby and it is already sold and now on a tree door in Pennsylvania! I've been working on getting a few more made to sell...hopefully soon! The Fairy's Hat are a real acorn cap and their heads are molded from polymer clay.
Leather Leaves and Wings
My newest craft adventure are these leather necklaces. Angel Wings and Leaves are what I'm starting with. These are for sale in my Etsy Shop. I've been collecting leather scraps for awhile now. The Angel wings vary in design and can be customized with a name.
See these in my shop!
I'm a dog person, I have a cat that I love but nothing is better than a dog! I think they were put on earth to comfort us and show us that there really is a thing called "Unconditional Love". ♥ ♥ ♥
Love C.S. Lewis!
Create, Learn, Love and Live
Honoring Jimi Hendrix, I'm making a small art quilt honoring Jimi. Such a great artist and such a shame a live cut short.
Creating art is a crazy thing..
Tiny Button and Sea Shell Books
I love my little sea shell and button books. Most of these can be wore on a chain for a necklace also. They are so fun to make because they are all so different. Most of them have been small (over 3") but I am working on a larger one right now, I'm very excited about how it will turn out. I have these for sale on Etsy and they have been great sellers.
I made some little leather books on chains but there are so many books like that on Etsy I decided to not list those and have been making them for gifts. Christmas will be here soon...did I really just say that it...uhg!
