Handmade Rings

 Earrings one day, and rings the next. I had so much fun!!!!
The top one was my inital try to see how it was going to work. I don't know what type of stone that is, but it reminds me of a Chicklet piece of gum. I used to love those as a kid, maybe that's why I like it so much. LOL
But this one is my favorite! I am wearing it right now, as I type, and I just LOVE it!! And it was fun to do, I love the little bit that I wound into the side. I think it just finishes it so nicely.
This is the easy, 6 min tutorial, that I used to make these. It was very easy to follow!

Crocheting Again

 This is what I've been doing lately.
 Popcorn stitch.
 This one is Organic Cotton, I will be posting it in my etsy store, as soon as I can get some other pics.
I used this pattern from Crafts n Things.
 This one was for Doris.
 This one was for Jo.
This was for Carolyn, it has a silver fleck, with a little ruffle on the ends.

MME December Sketch Challenge

 I can't believe it has been exactly a month since I posted anything. I have been busy, mostly crocheting, but I have been looking at challenges to get me back into some paper crafting. So! I decided to do My Mind's Eye December Sketch Challenge for scrapbooking.
 All the paper is from MME. The background sheet is Bella Bella: French Flea Market. The other papers are The Sweetest Thing: Bluebell, Lime Twist: Happy Go Lucky, and Stella & Rose.
 The stars are dies from A Muse
 The stamp below the button is Unity's Ippity Kit: A Moment in Time.
The pics are from our latest family dinner, this past summer. My nephew Ian & his cousin Jake were climbing trees, and Ian said he was a monkey, so they were making monkey noises. It was too cute!
