What have I been up to?

Lets see.  I have been busy with Corrigan Care as their Volunteer Director and Secretary.  I'm still making crafty things.  I'm a Rep for Jewelry in Candles.

That's about it for now.  I plan on blogging more these days, so stay tuned.

Mermaid Jewels

I've been working on making some wonderful Mermaid Jewels from all of the treasures I collected on the beach this past summer. This first necklace was a gift to my kids' music teacher.

The one below will go to my Etsy shop in April.

I've also been making some simpler necklaces which are already available in my Etsy shop.  As I collect more shells this summer on the beach I plan on making sets of similar necklaces for brides maids.  I think they would be perfect for a beach wedding!

Recycled Powdered Drink Bottle

This video shows a nifty idea to reuse those plastic bottles that powdered drinks come in. I'm sure those of you who crochet could come up with a cozy/carrying case for it. Although any strong strap would do the trick if tied around the narrowpart of the bottle. If you aren't fond of the foam decoration I would suggest letting kids go at it with sharpies.

Enjoying the summer.

For those of you who don’t know, my “craft room” is an ongoing struggle.  I put the quotes around craft room because right now it’s a sea of disorganized boxes.  Today I managed to do a bit of sorting and sweep the floors.  It had quite the collection of dead bugs.  EW!  I’m hoping to spend the next week, a few hours a day, working on the room and I do feel determined to get it to a usable state before school starts.

We’ll go to Myrtle Beach in a few weeks and I’ll get some beach combing in.  I wish I could find more sea glass or beach pebbles there.  I do find a lot of worn down shells which I think would make great jewelry if I actually sat down and did it.  Here is one of the necklaces I have made this summer. It is made on antiqued copper chain with stone beads.  Approximately 17” long.

Fiber Necklace Idea

I'm really getting into the whole fiber/fabric and wire thing. I am drawn to experiment with fancy yarns, fabric scraps, wire and re-purposed beads. I think I'm on a recycle kick. I may be submitting this one to my kids' school auction. I'll have to set it aside and look at it later to really decide.
