DART Rail & The Dallas World Aquarium

Tues­day, Ans­ley and I rode the DART rail into Dal­las to take Bel­lie to visit the Dal­las World Aquar­ium. The ride into Dal­las was made super fun because we sat in our seat so that we were going back­wards. When your 7 that’s awesome. Once we arrived it was absolute amaze­ment. I’m a firm believer that if you really want to enjoy some­thing like this com­pletely take a child. Their won­der and excite­ment is priceless. We got to the sloth exhibit at the per­fect time as it was climb­ing up and down the trees ever so slowly. This is my...

Bellie’s Here For A Visit

This past Sat­ur­day, Isabella (a.k.a. Bel­lie) my 7 year old niece came for her week of every­day fun. We have had a blast doing one paint project after the next. This girl LOVES to PAINT! She wants to paint over going to see a movie, get­ting a makeover at Sweet & Sassy, eat­ing break­fast at IHOP etc. I sug­gest some­thing fun to do for the day and all she says is can I just paint. So paint is what we have done all week. I asked her Sun­day what she wanted to paint and she said a horse. At first I pan­icked because this aun­tie does...

Handmade Gifts are Best

Handmade Gifts are Best

I truly believe a hand­made gift is one of the best gifts one can receive. I know I love to receive any­thing hand­made. The thought that some­one took the time to make some­thing spe­cial just for me, means more than I can describe. If you are just start­ing out in hand stamp­ing jew­elry charms or are think­ing about start­ing this charm is some­thing you can cre­ate fast and easily. One tip I have for begin­ners is to start out with Impres­sArt Soft Strike Metal Stamp­ing Blanks. These are amaz­ing!!! The stamp­ing blank used in my...

Dress Necklaces

These dress neck­laces accented with wire wrapped vin­tage beads are the lat­est designs added to my col­lec­tion of hand­made vin­tage boho chic jew­elry. I think what I love most about my jew­elry line is no two pieces will ever be dupli­cated. They are all one of a kind pieces and I LOVE it. I am always look­ing for items that are unique to wear and this line is perfect. FYI… If you see a heart, dress, cross or rec­tan­gle neck­lace in one pat­tern but wish it was in another pat­tern, please feel free to con­tact me as I might be able to...

One Of A Kind Tin Bracelets

One Of A Kind Tin Bracelets

I’ve really been enjoy­ing the cre­ative process of jew­elry mak­ing. Each piece of jew­elry I cre­ate is one of a kind and has been cre­ated from items I’ve col­lected from all over the coun­try dur­ing my trav­els. Most of the items used are unwanted, bro­ken and rusted trea­sures that I bring to life in a new fash­ion. I’ve lov­ingly taken the time to clean and com­bine these items into some­thing you will want to wear proudly. These bracelets are the newest items listed in my Etsy shop and will make per­fect gifts for any lady in your...

Cross Necklace

Cross Necklace

This sim­ply stated cross is a reminder that we are all slightly flawed yet still beau­ti­ful. I love the red, aqua and yel­low col­ors as they scream RETRO and go with any sum­mer attire. The tin has a few slight scratches here and there but I feel it only adds to the beauty of the cross. I wire wrapped a vin­tage clear iri­des­cent bead that dan­gles from two jump rings. The cross mea­sures approx­i­mately 2.25″ in length and hangs from a 24″ ball chain neck­lace. It is listed in my Etsy Shop. This match­ing bracelet mea­sures...

Tin Necklaces

Not only have I been mak­ing cuff style bracelets but I’ve also been mak­ing some cute sim­ply stated 24″ neck­laces. This neck­lace is what I call a dressed up ver­sion of a dog tag. Since I like my items to have a dis­tressed feel before stamp­ing my word I gave the metal tag sev­eral whacks with my brass ham­mer. Once I the sil­ver metal tag was banged up a bit I metal stamped the word smile onto the sil­ver metal tag using what is now my favorite let­ter stamp set 3mm Newsprint low­er­case by Impres­sArt.  I applied some Mus­tard Seed...
