Latest Projects




Well, I've finished some projects--mostly swaps and a giveaway that had decided to enter. Creating these things has been such fun. I didn't want to post these pictures before now. I didn't want to steal Tammy's thunder at Milk and Cookeez nor did I want the recipients of the other things to know what they were getting before they got them! The charm with the sparkling clear flowers and pink Swarovski crystal butterfly was part of the Milk and Cookeez "9 days of 2009" giveaway. A lovely lady named Cindi won that, and I will hopefully get it out to her today if I can get to the post office before it closes. The brooch I made for a very nice lady named Alaura (check out her beautiful blog called Cottage Rose--LOVE the name!) as part of Heidi's Very Vintage Swap. I had a lot of fun designing her brooch (the picture here was taken rather quickly, so it's not the best quality) and putting her box of Valentine lovelies together. The box also included a Valentine box I decorated, tea mug, hankey, tea, and other bits. I just love putting boxes together with lots of little things in them. Guess I get it from my old gift basket days. And, finally the box of charms went to Trish for the "Romancing the Charm" swap on The Tattered Rose. Each participant was to make a charm that somehow represents Valentine's Day. I chose to use pink, red, and white flower beads--the colors of Valentine's Day. It has all been much fun. There are other projects in the works. Please check on the column to the right for buttons pointing to those.
