Time away

Once again, I coming back from a long hiatus of blogging. I go through stages, where all I want to do is create. To be real, sometimes I forget to take pictures of my creations until they are all finished. Sometimes I just want to finish the project and move on to the next one. I see so many blogs put together with each step of the process.  I would like to be better at this.   I envy bloggers who can do this.  Oh it is not to say I can’t, I just have not found my rhythm yet.   Then I discovered something.   This is my blog. I can do whatever I want. If there is system I have to follow, I will be might be  going in the other direction.  Yes, I want the attention. Yes, I want the followers. Yes, I want to be in the blog  stratus sphere. But more important, I want to share my love of crafting. I hope everyone enjoys what I post. I enjoy sharing. So let me share a bit what I have been doing.

I got these at my job. They were free. I plan to paint them and use them to display necklaces. I love working with wood

These were given to me free as well. i plan to add a label with my business info and that is it. I have about 50 of these.

This side is where I will put the label and maybe stamp some images to make it pretty. Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh

It pays to go thought the entire store. I always stop at the clearance racks first. I found these in the clearance section of the sewing department at Hobby Lobby. The price was right. I could use these.


I found this stamp letter J in my collection and decided to use red ink to stamp the letter on tags(at least this what I am using it for.


I also used the stamp for jewelry tags that I made from a cutout of the African continent. I made about 50 and decorated with different colors. Boy it takes time to cut out all those countries




This was the original cutout. I found this in a magazine. I glued the magazine to some cardstock and cut out the image. Easy, peasy

Earring cards82413

Since I make jewelry, I use the cards that my finding come in as jewelry display. I will show the completed piece in another post. Free is alright with me

Here are two more examples of using what you have.  These are the backs of findings holders.  I have not altered these but it is coming.  These also make great jewelry holders or display.
