Happy Holidays

Happy holidays to you all!!!

I think I was all over the place!!!  Did cards, boxes, jewelry, and even about four loaves of raisin-cinnamon bread.

Missed pics of some of the things I made because, as usual, they were out of here as soon as they were done.  However, I did do about three dozen bracelets and was able to catch a few pics of them.

A Salvation bracelet, which was given to all my daughters and granddaughters, and my sister and best friend.

While I was making bracelets, I did this one from some wooden beads I had.  These are going to my daughters and sister.

This is the start of a jump ring bracelet that I was making for the hubby.

This is the jump ring that is now completed.  He really loved it and wore it to work.

This is another Salvation bracelet, but with three each of the different beads.  Each bead color is significant.

Boy, once the roll started, it was sort of hard to stop.  Just playing with beads here.

Another wooden bead.

May do a couple more bracelets today (even some earrings and necklaces).  My son gave me some equipment that will make it even easier.

Hope you enjoy.

Thanks for stopping...bye!!!

College Graduation Card

Hi guys.  Speaking with my niece this morning via phone, and she advised that her older daughter is graduating from college on the 18th of this month.  Well, while we were on the phone, I collected a little info and began sketching a design for a card.

Here's the video where I show the sketch and the pieces for the card.

And, here's the finished card.

Both gold papers are the color of the front of the card, and the balloons are gold also.  Sorry, if the colors are off.  Who knows, eventually I will get good at this photography thing, too.

This will go in the mail tomorrow to make sure she gets it - what with the Christmas rush and all.

Hope you enjoy.  Leave me a comment.

Thanks for stopping...bye!!!

Christmas and Sympathy Cards

Made a fast video to show you the Christmas cards I have been working on.  Still have a long, long, long way to go.  I am trying to get the ones out that need to go up north and to the east and west coast.  Then I will start on the ones closer.  They are very simple cards because they are going through the postal system.

I also included a sympathy card that I just completed.

Hope you enjoy.

Thanks for stopping...bye!!
