Long Time, No See or No Blog

It's been so long since I blogged, I have wondered how to get back into the practice. Nothing is as motivating as seeing all your "Inspirational Blog" links completely gone! So while starting to add some of those back, I decided to change the blog layout and header image.

So, what have I been doing the last several months?

 Making a journal for my niece.

  Fashioning a necklace for a cousin.

 Being inspired by texture and color.

 Filling my handmade journal and painting journals.

Planning art ideas in my handmade notebooks.

Recycled Earrings

This pair was made as a present, using some old James Avery armadillo charms souped up with new silver-toned seed beads and marble-like hearts. The armadillos are very intricate and cute but very tiny so now they have a few more accessories to draw attention.

Using some silver-toned wire, I did some wire wraps to link everything together. My friend loved them and quickly put them on!
