Hi ya'll! So, I wanted some way to be able to carry around photos of my jewelry / crafts to show people (if the opportunity ever arose). But the cute photo albums in the stores are a little pricey for me so you know me...I figure why not try & make my own. The 4x6 album I found at Wal-Mart for $3; the fabric I got on sale for a little over $2/yd at JoAnn's & I already had the ribbon. A little cutting here & there; whipped out my trusty glue gun and this was my end result! I love polka dots...cute huh?

Hey everybody! I just finished these two pair of Halloween earrings. Next to Christmas, Halloween is my favorite holiday. The (hopefully) cool, crisp air; the decorations & costumes; the candy & goodies ;)...oh and of course, the haunted houses!
I made these with the french hooks. A tiny plastic "stopper" can be used on the back to prevent the hooks from slipping off your ears. The black beads used on these are glass. Trick or Treat anyone?
On these I used the "post" earrings. Some people prefer them to the french hooks, such as my mom. I made these for her by the way, she likes spiders....yuck!

These are some Button Rings I just finished. Yes, I do make other kinds of jewelry besides Scrabble tile jewelry :)... The top one is an olive green button w/ a coral flower & topped with a pearl. The pink & brown one is topped with 3 irredescent pink glass beads and the black & white one has a swirl design & is topped with 3 pearls. Cute & funky ;)
