Artsydoll Charm Swap ~~ Whoo Hoo

A big thank you goes out to Kelly Parker for hosting the Artsydoll charm swap on the arttechniques yahoo group! This was my first charm swap and I can't tell you how much fun it was. The charms I received back are little works of art. I'm not sure what I am going to do with them yet. Since I played twice I have over 40 charms to play around with. I'll probably make a bracelet and a necklace. Also a big thank you goes out to all of the players. Below is a numbered list so you can match charm to artist. Group 2 is the first group picture with Group 1 below it. Click on the picture for a larger veiw.

If you are the artist who made charm # 18 in group 2 please send me your name so you can get credit for the beautiful little heart charm you made. It's one of my favorites! One of my charms is the single charm at the top. I just realized as I was looking for a picture of my charms I forgot to take one of my second charm. Sorry I can't show you that one.

Group 1 is the second…

Finally Teachers Gift

Let's see if Blogger is going to cooperate today. After being annoyed on my last post I came down with a nasty chest cold and have spent the past two and half days in bed. I feel much better today.

I threw together this teachers gift last week. I'm not real happy with it but my daughter's teacher loved and that's what matters. I know why I don't like it. The background looks too plain to me. I need to remember to add more layers before I add my focal elements. I actually love my wrapping. Check it out. I used a piece of very thin vellum used in the construction trade to draw up plans that my husband gave me. He gave me an entire roll of it and I have been trying to figure out a use for it. It worked perfectly in a pinch for wrapping paper. I stamped all over it with Stazon Inks and tied it up with a piece of ribbon. This is not the way I want my pictures to show up but I am not in the mood for it today so I am going to leave it as is.

New Stuff & Teacher Gift

I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post. I've been very busy volunteering at my daughters school this month. Tomorrow is the last day of school here and I am looking forward to the break.

This is a picture of a piece that I did a while ago. I made it at the same time as I did my "Cherish" piece. If you want to see that piece go back to my last post. I think I like this one better.
