I took a class at Eclectica .. a bead shop in Brookfield, and learned to make a Victorian style beaded ornament cover.
This is what I made in the class ... it took about 3-1/2 hours to make...
I had a great time making it.... I think I will be making these next year as my Christmas gifts!

The sparkly snow is super simple to make.
Make your cut out, place clear packing tape on the inside of the card with the sticky side facing out and sprinkle with glitter!!

A few weekends ago I went to Dragonflies and Dreams and made some cards at the Make and Take. Really liked how these turned out!
The next few days of posts will be the cards from then! Happy Holidays!
This first card I made for Mom and Dad, since Mom loves Nutcrackers...

I am expanding my creative outlets!!
I have decided to take up making earrings!
I started with these Christmas Trees and Snowmen for the holidays... They are made from Genuine Swarvoski Crystal Beads.
You can see how sparkly they are with all the refracted light on the board behind the trees and snowmen.
Forest of Trees
Hope you enjoy!

I have been in a creative funk since I lost my job in May. I have made a total of three cards in 5 months :(
Trying to jump-start my creativity with this cute little vampire.
I put some crystal lacquer on the "bloody drip" border so it really looks wet like blood .. pretty cool in person.
Drop me a note and let me know what you think ... I am not sure if anyone is even supscribed to my posts any more cause I was gone for so long!
