This last month flew by so fast !! We had our daughters wedding here and that took up a big chunk of our month getting the house ready for the big day.
Now it is June. I am so in shock. In one month the year will be half over, how did that happen ?
Well ,been busy and thought I would show you what I have been up to.
My friend and cousin has a daughter getting married in a few months and asked if I would make the jewelry for her wedding party, and of course I said yes !!!
So, finally all the bits and pieces got here and this is what I did yesterday !!! I did seven like this, just different letters !! I made earrings that are just the rhinestone charm alone. I had already packaged them up before I thought to share, so that is why it looks weird.
We had toyed with using the hearts but in the end, the bride liked the plain rhinestone charm alone for the earrings !!!
Besides that, I have been listing a lot on my Etsy page. Some of the things I am about to list, or already listed are these
not listed yet
really pretty charms, two sided, all earth or peace themed
not listed yet
I have so much to list and plan to really get a lot of it on the site over the next few weeks !! I started working on some new handmade clasps
I did a rose gold, a copper and a gold plated wire and plan to do some solid silver wire as well. I am out of practice and cannot find the hammer I use for this, so I was using a hammer for letter stamping which is much heavier, and bigger and harder to use.
Our youngest daughter recently moved all her sewing supplies into my studio to share with me, she made this cute mini quilt , she calls them Mug rugs, they are cute little quilts to set your mug or cup on. I got to pick my fabric and I love it !! I use it for cold drinks, but you can use them for hot too !! She is very talented and hopes to have a web site and Etsy page soon. She does a lot of gorgeous custom work, baby quilts, big quilts, you name it. I will post more of her work when I can get some pictures from her !!
Well, it is raining very hard and I am very tired from getting up much earlier than usual today !!
I will be back in the next few days with some more updates on what I have been up to !!
Here is a picture from the wedding we had here for our daughter , father daughter dance. My hubby looked so handsome, he cleans up really nice, but rarely does so. I think I fell in love with him all over again the day of the wedding, he looked so handsome !!! Almost 38 years and he still can do that to me !!!
here we are , both have more weight to lose, but both had a blast and felt good in our new wedding clothes !! It was a wonderful day !!
Thanks for stopping by. I always appreciate it !! Sorry I was away so long. That last month flew by !!
I would love to hear what you think !!!
