HaNdMaDe NeCkLaCe & EaRrInGs

I put together these earrings and necklace a few weeks ago. For the necklace I used a vintage brooch as the focal and used a crocheted beaded chain woven through a brushed silver chain. Very classy looking don't you think?

WhErE i CrEaTe....BlOg PaRtY!

I'm a little late getting these pics up as my husband is leaving on a missions trip to Bolivia tomorrow. So here it is.....my room. It's the smallest room in our house at a whopping 9ft x 9 ft and also serves as our guest room. In order to house the bed I opened the closet and inserted the bed into it and turned it into a nook area for reading or watching tv. The inside of the closet is still to be painted lime green to go with the melon colored walls. I'm still in the process of organizing the room as you can see from my messy desk!

This is my vintage card holding which houses ATC's from various swaps.

These shelves are just above the twin bed on the side wall.

This is the inside of the closet which makes a perfect "hiding place" for mommy according to Maddie!

The back of the door is a shoe holder turned supply holder!

The shelves beside my desk.

A glass case that I scored at a yard sale for $3.00 houses all of my jars.

Scrap booking supplies and paper collection.....

Another yard sale find was this vintage chair...another $3.00 find!

You never really see the top of the desk......*secret revealed*!

A kitchen gadget holder keeps all of my scissors, brushes, pens, pencils, markers, jewelry tools etc....

Spice rack holds beads.

My stuff!

So there you have it....where I create! Be sure to visit My Desert Cottage to visit all of the other bloggers and see where they create!

BeAd SwAp

A couple of weeks ago I received my bead swap in the mail from Sandy of Sandy's Coloring Box a beautiful mix of Fall colored beads wrapped in a really pretty piece of fabric! I wanted to sit and create something with these new beads but ended up sorting and organizing my jewelry making supplies. That's okay since there was a lot of organizing to do and I'm still not done but I've made progress. That's a good step for me as of late with all of the pain I've been having. I figured since I can't do much else besides sitting, I may as well be productive in some way while doing it.

I loved the fabric the beads were wrapped in so much that I actually used half of it to make fabric flowers! These were fun to make but next time I'm not using washable fabric glue. It took longer to get the glue off my fingers than it did to make the flowers!
