Bloomin' Fun Weekend


I have had a super busy week, which is ridiculous considering that one day was a holiday while another day was a vacation day.  But when at work, it was 120%....and unfortunately, for the next few months, I don't see it easing much.

But enough about all that, since in only a short bit, I'll be at it again.

In the meantime, I have been fighting a creativity block, breaking through with a card that I'm happy to include in a swap I signed up for (and was late on).  I used the {ippity} set, Bloom and Simplify. The sentiment was an itty bitty that I received just before the holiday weekend! 


This next project was a little necklace that I made similar to the necklaces I highlighted in the {ippity} April release, HERE.  I am sending this little present to someone that I'm sure will be very surprised!


And here is my beautiful daughter, Candace, modeling a scarf I weaved and gave to her.  It is the first project I've woven and I have to say that I'm really happy with it!  I am going to have to make a few more, oui?

Here's a couple add'l shots of it:

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus


You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered.
People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm.
Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around.
You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult.
A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors.
And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people.

What's Your Rising Sign?

Well, okay, I don't know about stable.
And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm".

But the rest, yeah.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts.

Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend.

I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above!




Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads.

Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging?



You can find the tutorial for the bag Here.
Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month.

People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. It's …
