Back at it

Crafty Blog of the Day: Everyday Beautiful
I have found the ultimate place to order beautiful fabrics on Etsy
and she has a wonderful blog, too. Jody is a great crafter/seamstress with a
phenomenal blog that she uses to share her craft and the crafts of others on.
Check out her yummy goodness...and be sure to tell her Barb the Craft Junkie sent ya!

============================================

I know it appeared as though I had dropped off the face of the earth for the past few days but with the little trip to the casino and getting home and trying to get back in the groove of things, blogging just hasn't been at the top of the priority list.

But I was going through withdrawals, so here I am.

It's funny. It seems like when I'm away from home, I jones for my computer and the internet but once I get home, I get so busy I don't have time to do all the things I want to do...such as posting on my blog or writing in my journal.

I did manage to get one of those projects that popped into my head in the middle of the night last week from my brain into fruition.

I was thinking about the necklace that Sarah Jessica Parker wears in Sex and the City...the one that says "Carrie". I thought there had to be some way I could do something personal like that but in a much more affordable way.

And this is what I came up with. Yea, I went all multi-colored but it was just an experiment to see if it would turn out as good as I envisioned it...and it did. Color schemes can be changed easily, it's the mechanics of it that I wanted to test out.

Pretty cute, huh?

I also have a few other ideas that I really need to get to work on but I have a couple of custom orders that I'm trying to finish right now...if the Fed-Ex dude will ever deliver my much needed peachy-pink beads I have on order. Grrrr!

Anyway, I'm back at it and need to drop my Entrecards for the day.

Oh, but first...I mentioned a contest last week, didn't I? Why yes, yes I did! Well, be sure to tune in tomorrow and I will be telling you all about it. (I'm all about the suspense! lol)

Until then, be safe, take care and happy crafting!

Peace & Love,
