My Sister's Got Talent!

Look at this GoRgEoUs necklace she made.

She came home for the weekend from Cedar City, and whipped this together in no time. Talent I tell ya! And isn't she just beautiful!

Here is a closeup of the white flower. The other pictures didn't show the detail very well.

Here is another beauty she made this weekend. Love it!

I LOVE all of the cute flowers that you see around these days. I must make me some stylin' necklaces like these soon! AND wouldn't these make great Mother's Day gifts!

Now you go and give it a try, and then come back and share what you have created!

Thrift Store Chest

Awhile back I was shopping at the D.I., our local thrift store, and I found this lovely gem! I had been wanting some sort of storage for blankets in our living room, and this was perfect!

It looks like it was homemade, but it had some sticky foam on it, and didn't have a finish on it. So all we had to do was sand it down and stain it! (When I say 'we' I mean my hubby!)

I think it turned out quite nice, but what do you think? I think that I might still put a clear coat on it, but we will see!

Note: after looking at these pictures, I might still make it a little darker.

Hello! I'm back and I'm excited for some changes that I am making to this blog. I will be making this a craft blog, showcasing much much more than just jewelry. I have taken a step back from making and selling jewelry, and will focus more on other kinds of crafts I'm making, thrift store finds, and other various DIY projects. I plan to post often with fun ideas that inspire my creativity (and hopefully yours too!)

Have a great day!
