I Finally Figured It Out!!!  

So, I made these plastic shrink bracelet "beads" (I'm calling them "beads", only because I can't figure out what else to call them).

You can see from the side view that I made them to curve around a wrist. I have had them for a couple months and could never really figure out what I was going to do with them. The couple things I had thought of just didn't work.

I knew I would be able to figure how to make them into a bracelet. Well, the time has come and I have the best idea EVER. But, I can't tell you. You will just have to keep checking back to see what I have done with them. Oh, how I love secrets! He He He :O)

Peacock Earrings  

Ok, I haven't listed or posted anything new in a long time. This is my reason, I have been working on special orders, Woo Hoo!!

I want to show you what I'm working on now, "Peacock Earrings", I'm still working on them. They need fringe. This is something very different from what I do, but, I was asked if I could make them. I started making them, I think last week. It's taking me a long time to do them, but, I'm having fun! So, here is my attempt!

Dreaming Diva, Must Read!!  

I just wanted to share with you all a blog that I just LOVE reading, her blog brings a smile to my face every time.

It's Jen from, aka "Juicy Adventures of a dreaming Diva".

So, here’s my story of how the Dreaming Diva changed my day around.

A couple weeks ago I was really having a terrible couple of days. I was feeling sorry for myself (I’ll save you the boring details) and I was sulking. All I wanted to do is sit and eat a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Phish food (if you haven’t tried it, all I can say is that it’s a pint on heaven) and watch a chick flick.

The next day when I went to work and opened Jen’s blog (I’m supposed to be working… Shhhh, don’t tell my boss), her post for that day was called “Dust off your Diva!” this post was so motivating I can’t even tell you. You have to read it! I have to thank her for kicking me in my Diva tush and helping me to Dust off my inner Diva!

All I have to say is that the Juicy Adventures of a Dreaming Diva’s blog is a must read, you can feel through her writing that she is the sweetest person and that she is loving life! So, whenever I feel a little sorry for myself, opening Jen’s blog is a must. I can count on her for having a post that will change my day.

Thank you to the Dreaming Diva for your motivating blog!

What I want to know are the older celebrities. I do have a lot of older ones in mind. But, I want your input on this!!

Present For My Best Friend  

First I have to thank Carol Dean from SandFibers for the inspiration of this necklace and the beautiful focal bead from Artisan Clay.

I'm going to the 40th birthday party of my best friend from high school. I wanted to give her something special and really couldn't think of anything. Until I saw the necklace from Sandfibers, I absolutely love the necklace Carol Dean created. So, I decided to purchase a focal bead from Artisan Clay. If you haven't visited her shop you have to go there now!

With the inspiration from Carol Dean and gorgeous focal bead I made her something from the heart.

I think she is going to love it, I know I do!!

This necklace is very different from what I make and I just made it for my friend. I will not be making it to sell in my shop. I found the inspiration from a fellow BeadWeaver and will not copy the idea for my benefit.

A Poem about Me!  

As some of you might know, I am a member of an amazing community called Divapreneur!
There is one Diva (Pansy) that composed these amazing poems. I just wanted to share a poem written about me. Pansy wrote this from reading my profile. It's the same profile I use on Etsy.
I hope you enjoy it!!

A little Diva gathered...
From her papa's drawer...
The ingredients she needed...
To make something more...

As time ticked on...
And brought the dawn...
Of new and shining days...
The Diva grew...
And added to her ways...

She plucked and planted...
Sketched and ranted...
In a myriad of things...
To all who see her creations...
A smile it does bring...

Earthy clay...
Has given way...
To her Diva hands...
Molding & Melding...
Across these artistic lands...

She has a love...
She plainly states...

A passon that stirs...
This Diva soul of hers..

I'd love to hear feedback about this bracelet, I'm thinking of doing a line of tattoo inspired jewelry.

Everyone has one, here's mine!!!  

I feel everyone who makes handcrafted items has a crafting disaster. So, that doesn't leave me out. Last week I was trying to make a new Snapshot bracelet.

I wanted to try a new face, I decided to make May West. Having never tried to bead her before it would be a challenge, as with all the other first time patterns. Most of the time when I'm making a new face the pattern has to be adjusted as you bead, it looks better on paper than it does when beaded. So, this was no different, I must have taken it apart a least 5 times.

Finally I decided just to finish beading it and cross my finger that it would come out like the others did, "GOOD". Well, I was wrong. I don’t think you would look at this one and say, “Oh look it’s May West”, I don’t feel it looks like her.

What do you think, Does it look like her?

So, here is my crafting/beading disaster. I'm only human!!

I am a Divapreneur!!  

I am very happy to tell everyone that I am a proud member of Divapreneur. Oh, I am so excited about this.

How this came about is, I was doing my drops for Entrecard and came across a blog called  My Chic Things and just loved the design. Then I clicked on another blog called Girly Up The Web and the same thing, I thought it was beautiful. I also kept seeing Divapreneur on both of these blogs, I was very interested in it. But, I read that you had to be invited. I looked around both blogs to see if I could find out who designed them and I found out. Elaine Biss is her name. She designed both blogs.

The next day I got in contact with her about designing a new look for my blog, new logo and a new banner for etsy. We talked about my shop,what I wanted to do for my business, what she does, I found out that she is the owner for Divapreneur. Wow, I couldn't believe it.

She asked me if I would be interested in joining Divapreneur, of course I was interested. I also hired her for the new look. This is going to be one of the best things I could have ever done.

So keep a look out for my new look in the near future. Things are happening!!!
