We made valentines and valentine jewelry, tonight. We ate chicken noodle soup because Vivi wasn’t feeling well. She persevered to get her valentines ready for school tomorrow. No store-bought cards allowed.
I’ve gone bracelet-making crazy!
Unhinged, I think it looks like a snake skeleton! Thanks, again, to Tracy Proctor from Tierra Cast for teaching me this stitch.
Once upon a time…
I bought a kit and knitted a bracelet. Then I went crazy and bought different cords and number 6 seed beads in every color I could find. The original was gold, and the second was hot pink. The third was silver-lined crystal knit on silver cord. I lost interest, or a life thing came up, and I never added a clasp.
Today, I found that silver bracelet bagged up with its leftover beads!
I found it in this pink gift bag, and inside are at least a dozen other zipper bags with beads and matching cords!
Now, to find the pattern!
Gold and Silver
Fresh from the Oven!
No, they’re not chocolate! They’re polymer clay buttons! Some are shaped from molds and some are molded by hand. (the acorn, the zuni bear, and the mushrooms, for example)
They need sanding and staining and sealing. Coming soon to a bracelet near you!
Finished and Thrilled!
I baked a batch…
of buttons! The grandkids were in NYC over Thanksgiving, so these are the only things I’ve baked in a long while, unless you count toast! 😄
like crazy this holiday weekend!
These flowers will need to be trimmed down before becoming buttons. I’ll also highlight the details with mica powder before baking.
A Crafty Day
I was asked to cover a box for the neighborhood food drive here in Charlotte. I finished and delivered it today.
I replaced a clasp on Adrianne’s necklace.
I treated myself to a trip to Michael’s.
The sales and coupons and clearance were great! They had molds ($1) and stencils and stamps, oh my! I used my coupon on that UV lamp!
I rubbed my new color-change mica on embossed card stock. ‘Slightly disappointed in this one.
In all, a good day, just the same!
