A few of my handmade lace fans

Here are the lace fans I have left. I am going to make some more soon. I have used quite a few of them on projects so I need to replenish them.

Purple dollar store altered box

Here is another altered dollar store box in my favorite color...PURPLE!! I just love this one. Trim is from my moms things, lots of flowers and bling. Alot of the things on this one also came from Cynthialoohoo. The lace fan in the corner I made.

Altered dollar store box using Graphic 45 paper

This is another of the dollar store boxes, and I used the Graphic 45 paper 'On the Boardwalk'. More Iamroses flowers, and some bling. The trim on the edge I got from my moms things. Skeleton leaves were in a RAK from Arlene at Mybutterflykisses12. I think it turned out pretty nice.

Altered pink dollar store box

This box I got from my dollar store. It was already this gorgeous pink, so I just went with it. Almost everything that is on this box I got in a RAK from Cynthialoohoo! It has a little bit of everything on it.

Small balsa box

For this box I used the Maribel paper collection and butterflies that were cut out from the Mariposa paper. I added some Iamroses flowers and painted the box gold. I put a piece of pink felt inside to soften it up a little.

Balsa box and toilet paper roll mini album

Here is my first balsa box with a mini album that is made from toilet paper rolls. Most of the flowers are from Michael's. I just painted it and used some pretty papers that matched, added some lace and flowers and cut some tags for the mini. Pretty basic, but I think it turned out very pretty!

Captured Fairy

I decided it was time to start putting up some of the things I have made. This captured fairy is in one of the plastic Prima Flower containers. To get the labels off I gently used my heat gun, not letting it get too hot, and the labels peeled right off.
The flowers are a mixture of Iamroses and assorted flowers from Michael's. I went with mostly a purple and pink color scheme with a few other colors thrown in. The images I got off the internet along with the background. I used alot of stickles and glitter. The butterflies are both Martha Stewart punches and I doubled them up and glittered the top one. There are a few crystals and sea shells in the bottom, but they are almost buried and hard to see.

All my jewelry for sale is now posted!

Well it took most of the day, but all the jewelry is here now. If you like something and feel my prices are too high, send me an email with an offer. I have priced most of this about 75% lower than I normally sell them. I really need to make a couple hundred dollars for my dental work. I am going to be selling more things on here besides the jewelry, I just don't know what yet. I am going to have to part with things that I don't want to sell in order to get my teeth fixed. Thanks for stopping by, and happy shopping!

Handmade lanyards for sale $10 each

Ok I have got my handmade lanyards for sale now. Look on the left column under things I have for sale and it will take you to the page! I am selling these for at least half of what I normally sell them because I need to get money to get my teeth fixed. I am in pain and have a lot to get of dental work done. Please help out a good cause and purchase something. I will be putting the rest of the jewelry up over the course of the night. I hope to get it all on here tonight!

Crazy weekend and I am tired!

What a weekend I have had. John bought a glass and metal tv stand 2 weeks ago for the basement. After he got it together, I loved it and wanted one for the living room. Problem was, we had a HUGEEEEEEEEE wood entertainment center that was LOADED with nic nacs, movies on both dvd and vhs tapes, photo albums etc. So in order to get the new stand I had to pack up alot of my nic nacs, all of my vhs tapes and other random stuff. I had to decide what I really wanted to keep out for display, and it was hard!! So finally 6 hours later and alot of sweating and complaining, and we got it done. I have so much more room now. I still have wall to wall stuff, but it is not as condensed as it was. Not piled quite so high and deep. We just have way to much stuff. So now my next challenge is to get my craft corner more organized. I had ideas in my head last night, but you know that never works right. So another challenge lingers for me for the next few days. But for now, I am going to get some lunch, get some snacks ready, and get prepared to hopefully watch The Bears kick Greenbay's butt!

Lollipop Flowers

Flowers are handmade by burning the edges of satin circles in various sizes to make them curl up, then stack them for a layered look. Each flower is adorned with 3 pearls and either ribbon or pearl trim and feathers. Some of them have glitter in the center around the pearls. They have a small circle of cardstock on the back so they are easy to adhere to your project.
They are adhered to the cardstock with a tiny dot of school glue, and you can gently tear it off of the cardstock, then re-glue it to your project.
Approx. 2 inches in diameter.
These flowers look so pretty on mini albums and scrapbook pages!
Sold in 3 packs, so each one is unique.

Tiny Lace Flowers

Tiny handsewn lace flowers. NO GLUE. About 1 1/4 inches in diameter. They are great to put on cards, scrapbook pages and mini albums. They are sold in 6 packs so you get plenty!

Stick Pins

Handmade stick pins for your mini albums, flowers, cards etc. I only use glass pearls, tibetan metal spacer beads and genuine Swarovski Crystals. Made on eye pins so you can add charms! These are much prettier than the pictures.

Poofy Flowers

Some of these have been given away in RAK's, but I can always make more! I will be posting these for sale on here soon. And there are TONS more on the way later in the week!

Starting again...

Wow it has been a LONG time since I have been on here. I started this blog, then I guess I just forgot about it! I am going to try and figure this all out, and get some things on here a couple times a week.
