I Crafted

lets talk about LOVE.....

love was bought at the Dollar Tree for One American Dollar... plus 11cents tax.

love was painted white then with silver glitter

then covered in Mod Podge and Acrylic Silver jewels all available at Walmart but I had these things for other projects like wand painting (the Harry Potter type) and the jewels were used with candles for a photo shoot and Mod Podge is used like mayo on craft items dontcha know.

I hope you know love and let it decorate your world.

My Mama's crafty works

As This has been a very difficult season my first Christmas without my Mom and Dad I had a very crowded trip down memory lane at every turn at every decoration. So many things came to mind at once, so many things Sis and I talked about and remembered and the so many things we sorted through this passed holiday.  One of those many visited things were Moms Christmas tree ornaments silly most of the time but Mom had went out of her way to make our tree very special. I can see why I enjoy crafts and appreciate hard work Mom did.

Today I'm sharing that with you. I couldn't stand to put ornaments on my tree this year because most of my tree revolves around my Mom but when I went home some things needed sorting and divided and preserved.  Were were attempting to starch some of the ornaments and it partly worked just not all the way so thats something for later. I hope you enjoy seeing my Mothers works.

Proof of life

I hope you all had a great Christmas and a very Happy start to this New Year!

I need to tool up and I'll have some crafty photos coming soon!

Beading hearts

Shipping drama lama GO AWAY!!!

Not only is my dress in customs (note I don't live anywhere near Cincinnati) but this beauty of jem pops up in my feed the Post office!  
Is going to be closed on Wed. ARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGG!

I feel like Charlie Brown I tell you. DHL generally ships to the post office for delivery. I could use a break. GOOOOOOOD Grief!


Remember all the debate and dilemma over what dress I would pick? Well Poof that was a pipe dream even though I ordered the dress almost one month before hand (there days shy of 30) its not ready and from what they are saying it's not going to be here. Y'all I dish out or rather hubby dished out 70 bucks for nothing. Maybe I"ll have an event for new year maybe not. sigh. I give to to you the dress that will never be (unless God hands me a break on this). I'm ready to start the new year hopeful a better year next year. I keep thinking Beauty for Ashes.

The Earring tree.

The Earring Tree was the name of the mall shop where my young ears were pierced and thus was my most significant outward stepp into womanhood. I'm not a huge earring wearer however I've never been re pierced so that says something.

Back to "The Party Dress Post"  if you have a party dress the earrings must be perfect. I have found a few contenders however not made my final selection. Where is a good Paparazzi rep when you need her? photo crews to Amazon for making my earring journey so... silly.

From the Queens Royal Jems I give you the classic dangles.

Again from the Royal palace I give you the candelabras that went missing last week.
I give you the tree missing its partridge. 
The swans that swim.
Now we question. Why only one Flamingo and why RED?

Its substantially sparkly
