He Sweet Friends...
If I am reeeeeally honest with you all...well I have
been struggling. This time of year is the hardest for me.
I AM a warm weather girl and I am sticking to it!!!
These cold, gray days just get me down. In the
17 years I have lived in Michigan, Winter season is
one I Dread!!! Now I really do try and make
the best of it...but on the hardest of hard days,
I am dreaming of Florida warmth...someday...
slooooowly been getting my Christmas stuff put away. Yes
I did say that...I wait til the end of January cause I like
to enjoy my decor, as it takes me so long to get it all out.
Then, I pour over magazines for FRESH new ideas
and inspiration and get myself in a decorating tizzy!
Being creative can be both a blessing and a curse!
But when those creative juices flow...you'd better watch out!
So today I got a FRESH creative spurt and had to come
share it all with you.
Have ya'll seen those *Bib Necklaces* that are the rage
right now? Well I have, and I have had this swirling
in my brain for days and I finally got one done
just for Moi!
Now I am keeping this one as it has some pretty
pieces of jewelry that were my grammy's. One of the
sweet thangs my aunt and momma did when I got
the privaledge of going to her funeral over the
Christmas holidays, was to sit with my
sisters and all the girls and see what she had collected
in her 96 years of living.
Mom and my aunt picked out what was most special to
them and when the rest was gone over
lucky me, I got to bring all the other
I have plans to decorate
a couple of frames up for my mom and aunt so they
will have sweet memories of her.
The rest...well I get to play with! yay me!
These really are easy to do. Now on this one I used some of my
own clay roses, vintage buttons, grammy's pices.
I even took an old chain of hers, cut it in half and used it as well.
The base back is felt and then I used a piece of
stiff interface that was glue to the felt.
Do you have left over jewelry that you don't
know what to do with...here's a great idea.
I'd love to create one just for you...
I may do a few more up to see if they will sell...
Thanks so much for letting me share this with you!
Hope you are all out there being inspired and
