Fairy Garden

 Hello fellow bloggers, TGIF! I wanted to show you my Fairy Garden that I made. I love faeries, have quite a collection of figurines, dolls, pictures & of course, jewelry. First I had to find my items. I found this planter at Hobby Lobby, I don't remember what I paid for it but it was really inexpensive ($10 or less), it was on clearance. I already had the fairy figurine in my collection. I found the sleeping gnome & the polka dot mushroom at Target & the "foliage" at the Dollar Tree. I just filled the planter with potting soil and arranged my items just so....and now I have my very own faerie garden to enjoy :)

Show Your School Spirit

 Whether it be your favorite high school or college, show your school pride with a pair of cute earrings at the game! These are made out of random scrabble tiles or specific letters can be used, and then your choice of school or college can be put on the front and sealed with the Triple Thick gloss for that shiney finish. And I made these using the french hooks but they can also be made with the posts as well. My favorite sport by the way is of course, football! Yay! Go Team! :)

Something Wicked This Way Comes...

Something Wicked This Way Comes...this is a Beaded Simplistic Pendant with glass beads to accent the top & bottom. I love the look of old weathered parchment so I tried to create that look for this piece so I cut around the edges before adhering it to the tile. Love it!

The Eye Scrabble Tile Simplistic Pendant

Double double, toil & trouble....Happy Halloween my pretties! Wear this spooktacular "eye" catching pendant & see if your third eye can see your future...ha-ha! Ok, I know I'm a bit corny but I absolutely love Halloween! And it's finally cool! How about this gorgeous weather? Ok, well I'm signing out for now...stay posted....there's more to come!


These are some keychains I just finished. They are made using the 1x1 1/2 inch wooden pieces. I paint them first using a coordinating color depending on the picture I put on it, then I place the picture, coat the entire piece with the Triple Thick Gloss Glaze for a shiny finish. These I've added some "beaded dangles" to the bottom but I do have a couple that I made without any dangles...just depends on your preference, and then lastly I add a bow or tie some cute ribbon for that cuteness factor...;) Oh and the little beaded chain too...

Initial Pendant
Hey everybody. I've got a couple of posts I wanted to get in tonight. I'm also sitting here watching Dancing with the Stars, one of my favorite reality shows. The other two I like are American Idol & So You Think You Can Dance...But anyways, these pendants I made using 1 x 1 1/2 inch rectangle wooden pieces but everything else is done the same as when I use the Scrabble tiles...whatcha think?
