On My Mind

Little things make me smile. Today I smiled because I got to create a project that involves two passions:  jewelry and paper crafting.  I was commissioned to create a jewelry tool for a client. Unfortunately, I was in such a hurry to get it over to her that I forgot to snap a photo of it prior to "locking" in this little package.  So, we'll just concentrate on the package.

It was really simple.  3 x 3.75 inches.  I scored every 7/8" on the longer side and created a little pentagon package that is fixed on each end with a 5 petal flower punch.  In the center, I punched a little hole where I strung twine that I purchased from another chick, on her ETSY site.

Then, of course, the sentiment, which is, of course, from Unity.  I love these new sentiment sets, because I'm ALWAYS looking for a good sentiment to use and these sets put them together for me. This one is from the { thoughts are with you} set and is perfect for what I wanted.

OK.  WELL, my other passion is photography and THIS is the time of year to take pictures.  So, on an adventure with my little garden gnomes (Oliver and Layla), we made sure the camera went along to capture these little hints of the earth renewed..that unfortunately wither all too quickly.

AND FINALLY, my little garden gnome.  He was such a good little gnome, posing so nicely.  Layla even watched him and wanted in on the action!


What a sweet little container! Love your Daffies and fur baby!

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!
