The New Year

Happy Belated New Year all you wonderful people. I am hoping this year will be more productive esp. in terms of my getting my weight down and my BS under control.

IF you surfed in from BBpeople you are in the right place.

I am busy buying stuff on ebay. When did we get this Chinese influx? I have found lots of supplies on there really cheap. I am sad though they are NOT American Made.

Well my Dau. and her kids may be moving back to NY by the end of summer. You know what that means, right? It means I will not be going to FLA. at least not right away. :-/
My young'un has already said if they come back she is not going to FLA as we planned. She wants to spend time with her sister and nephews again. She and my oldest Gr.son ( her oldest nephew) are practically bro. and sis. They were raised together most of their lives.

So. What's new with e-1 ?

I really need a new camera. I have new bracelets I made that I want to showcase. I think I will commandeer my dau. camera now that she has her cell phone back.

Christmas is Almost Here *SIGH*

How sad is it that I want it over with? I get so stressed. I cry that I lost the magic of Christmas and I am trying so hard to remember it is not about trees, gifts and money but rather it is about Jesus coming back to give us life and forgiveness. But the world, esp. TV kills that. I was filled more with the spirit on Thanksgiving then now. I am frustrated by the lack of space I have to decorate. I have a little charlie brown tree with no decorations except a few cursory ornaments and the lights that the tree came with. I had a few strands of beads I thru up on it. My youngest didn't seem to be in the mood to decorate it either. *SIGH* Ya know I thought I was done with Christmas Depression a few yrs ago but it seems it is back.

Well I made this Ball Wreathe I found on Pinterest. I love it.
I just need to fix the ribbon. I cannot find my glue gun! It was brand new. *GRRR* I had to glue the ornaments shut with E-6000. Same with the ribbon. I tried to use it to hold the ribbon in place since it keeps slipping between the cracks (* balls*).

Here are the coasters I made, now in my shop.




I also made a few more earrings, I had a request to make some for a woman I volunteer with for her daughter. No Pics. I also Just finished another wrap bracelet. This one wraps 4 times, Nice.

Will have some more pictures soon. I created some coasters, and Feather earrings. I have also been playing with my Polymer clay. Something I have NOT done in a long time. Trying to make some pretty red and white beads for Christmas.

Someone wanna tell Santa I want/ NEED a new camera, PLZZZZZ. I will even take a point and shoot for less then 100.00 I just need a camera to take pics of my work. I really want a good one the 400.00 + dollar cameras. However I don't think I have a rich santa in my family so I will settle for a decent P&S.

Wrap Bracelet Done!

It is only a single bracelet technically NOT a wrap, but I wanted to learn the stitch and I ran short of the thread I was using. My Kiddo wants one for her ankle.. Go Figure. Now that I know how to do it I want to make a real wrap.

ANOTHER Pinterest Success!

More earrings. And Pet Peeves.

Before I go there I want to ask, Is there NOT a song that katy perry sings that has no Sexual Overtones? Was just in my daughters room and she had the radio on. There was a song playing and I knew the voice was familiar although I could not remember it. The beat was funky and I thought maybe I could like it. Then I started listening to lyrics...ACK! REALLY? Having sex with an alien or something like that. I inquired of my kiddo who the singer was and she said it was perry. I think every song I have ever heard of hers has something to do with sex. UGH

Ok Now that I have that off my chest I have another pet peeve.... CHRISTMAS Commercial and music on halloween / long before thanksgiving! JUST STOP IT, OK! Wally world has those commercials for xmas layaway, one of them featuring some perky and annoying blond woman singing, ring, ring ring, ring a ding ring me up! UGH I have dropped a few F*Bombs on her already. I am telling you by the time Christmas gets here I am like scrooge. It is getting earlier every year!

OK Onto the earrings. I made a few more the red and white ( clear) I made for me. the other 2 I made for Christine's consideration. I just need to put on the ear wires.

Addicted To Pinterest

I left FB and got Addicted to Pinterest...HAHA! So much for getting off the web! I have found some yummy recipes on there. I have a "I came I pinned I tried" Board. I spend so much time there and I am trying all the new things I see. I Learned the Bullion Stitch in crochet, and that blue braided necklace I recently posted I got from Pinterest as well.

I recently added this to my board of tries-- Oatmeal can TP Holder...Did you know one can of rolled oats holds 2 rolls of tp? Me either until I tried it. I wrapped it in scrapbook paper and put ribbon around the top and bottom....And it matches my ugly green bathroom ( happy accident, I didn't consider the color)


Here is another pair of earrings I made for Chris. Tomorrow I bring them all to skool to see which ones she likes. Tonight I do my final pricing...*SIGH* I have gone back and forth on the prices so many times My poly bags are full of blue scribbles...LOL



I also made a pair of blue drop earrings from the same color beads. 2 chains hung from a fishhook wire with the beads on the ends. Very simple but very pretty. I gave them to a friend for her birthday, I hope she likes them.
