Thrifty Find

I like to visit our local thrift shops every now & then to see if I can find little odds & ends. For a while now, I've been meaning to find something to display my jewelry. In my visit to a cute little thrift shop I went to this past friday, I found these cute little vases. I couldn't wait to get home to to take pictures of my jewelry displayed on these cuties. I think they turned out great!

More handmade goodies

I was inspired to make these from a movie I saw from the late 1930's early 1940's. I don't recall the name though. They look so vintage, sophisticated, and charming all in one. I don't normally use memory wire, but I do love how the first one turned out! It comfortably wraps around the wrist. So charming!!!

On another note

I've been meaning to post photos of my 1st craft show for about a year now. I was going through some of my pics and found these. I know is a little late (or maybe a lot), but better late than never. This craft show was held in May of 2010. I will soon be preparing for a few more coming up this spring & summer. I will keep you posted on where & when, so you can pay us a visit if you like. ;)

A work in progress

I've been working on quite a few projects lately. These are but a few of them. I call these "Cutie Pie" bags because that's just what they are, cute! I have also designed and made lots of vintage inspired jewelry that will soon be posted on my website. Will keep you posted!

Snow, snow go away, please come back another day!

This is what we woke up to this morning. Although is quite beautiful, it can also be quite crippling for folks who do not have 4 wheel drive vehicles. According to the weather report, we're expecting more snow this week. Can't wait till spring!(sigh)

Pattern? (Hmmm)

I've been thinking lately about making the patterns for my handbags available for retail. I'm still debating if I should though. We'll see, only time will tell. I've even come up with a cute little design for the "Marilyn Handbag" pattern cover.

I'll keep you posted about my new (maybe) business venture.
