Snails Are Taking Over!!

Here is another snail..this one is for my fab cousin Meghan. She requested one, so of course I had to do it. I just realized..... none of these little suckers look the same!
This is Gwen the Space Snail. She is done is shiny, glittery, silver sculpy clay.
If you click on the get the giant size and can see the beautiful shimmer.
I added some rhinestones to her shell and bejeweled her cupcake as well.

Different Colors...

I read in FamilyFun magazine that by simply putting a colored post- it- note over the flash you can get some pretty cool effects. My camera is not all that stellar but it worked pretty well. Henry thought it was cool anyway. I tried tissue paper in yellow, red, and green, and that looked much better. Here are the results!
Not sure when or why you would use this effect but it was fun to try.

Fast Friends...

I took a bunch of pictures today of Zellah and Wednesday. I think this one turned out pretty cute. It is always much harder to take their photos then I plan! I never really put them together, but they are two totally different sizes.
They hit it off right away...luckily Zellah brought girl!
Cupcakes are re-ment.They are my new love..teeny, tiny plastic items...pure bliss

Bangles and Brew!!

I made this fantabulous bracelet this weekend at my friend Tandra's house. A friend of hers, Patricia, makes her own beautiful beads and decided to try out a bracelet making party. We were her first group and I think we all made awesome stuff. It was fairly easy... you just string the beads on! Of course the perfectionist in me re-strung it 8 times..and I still want to try new combos,but I like this one pretty well. Tandra made an awesome one with bright funky colors, I would love to try that one next! I think the brights are more my "thing".
Check out Patricia's Bangles and Brew website...and links to her other beautiful work.

Meet Elise and Eva. They are secret keeping sisters made from wood game pieces.
Eva, the light blue sister, is the shy one but she has many fantastic stories to tell.
These beauties are a gift to a friend.
