Hi all - no I haven't fallen off the face of the earth....but it's been like that! I have one of those summer colds that just won't leave! Got it on Sunday and it's lingering like crazy :( Anyhoo....I haven't worked on many cards this weekend because my brain can't possibly think of something to create from scratch, so I finished up the pillows my mother asked me to make for her bedroom. She got a new white bedspread that has little cranberry colored flowers on it and she's thinking the room looks too white and wanted some color in there...so voila! Here mom---here's some matching pillows :)

Hi All! Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've had a busy week. My hubby and I are about to celebrate our 1 year anniversary on Monday, 8/20. We will be heading to the coast to escape work for a few days. So no crafts this weekend :) But I will leave you with a picture or two until I get back....

Here is a cute baby blanket I just finished making for a friend. I have never liked pink but I love this dark pink, light pink and green combo. I enjoy making baby blankets--probably because they are not to difficult...you just need to go straight across...I can't imagine making a sweater...."what this piece needs arms?"

I went to the craft store the other day and saw some Jeweled Bookmarks that I just loved...well I thought to myself, "I can make that!" So I bought the supplies and went home and started making bookmark after bookmark. I've decided that I'm going to put them in my family's stockings at Christmas.
If you're family and you're looking at this blog, can you guess which one is going to be yours? :)
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

I made 3 of these Tea Books for my dear friend, Kathryn. She brought tea time to our department a few years ago. Every day at 10am we would take a break from work and enjoy a cup of tea and some snacks. Kathryn decided to go back to school and our department was extremely sad to see her leave. Before she left I had everyone donate a tea bag and a nice note. In each book I created 8 slots for a tea bag so that every time she makes herself a cup of tea she can think of the person who gave her that tea. I'll miss you Kathryn!

So I took a break from card making and worked on my "beading". Here is a necklace and a pair of earrings I made. The earrings are for my great friend Michele! Her birthday was last month and she loves wearing jewelry especially hand made items. She wanted something black and white and so...here they are :) I hope she likes.
