So it's new year

This year I will be sharing more of my crafty ideas, project and pieces. I have a ton of unfinished things around here. My goal is to finish most of them, the ones I don't finish I either rip up or throw out.
Have you seen the "pay it forward" message on Facebook? I have posted it and I got takers straight away ;) I am so looking forward to it. I love the idea, you post this on your Facebook status:


"Creative Pay-It-Forward: the first five people to comment on this status will receive from me, sometime in this calendar year, a gift - perhaps a book, baked goods, a candle or music.. a surprise! There will likely be no warning and it will happen when the mood strikes me. The catch? You five people must make the same offer in your fb status"

So I did this even got a sixth person, she commented but after the first five, but I can't leave her hanging haha besides I all ready know what I'll make for her.

I will be posting the gifts I send and the ones I receive, I commented on four others so I am so excited. I think this is a very very sweet idea and I would like to spread a little love and thought out to my friends.

Anyway I have finished some of the first present, just need to make a card and wrap it up really nice, and the ideas.. well I think it is very good we have pinterest LOL

So these past days I have been working on a few things to get back in to beading again. Been crazy here with Christmas and new years and I finally have time for my self again.

Bracelets first, these two I made from a pattern, you can find it here: shambaduo I chanced a few things, I beaded around the top duo and used less beads  at the beginning.


 This is actually an old bracelet. I bought it waaaaay back when, one of the very first pieces I ever bought actually. Well I was never really a jewelry kind of girl, I got my ears pierced when I was 20 and from that moment on I began to buy and love jewelry. This bracelet was made with elastic cord, but I hate working with elastic and I always manage to brake it, store bought or not. But here it is new and improved.

I wanted to make one of these bracelets cause I've seen a thousand of them and loved them, but I'd might have to face that this really isn't me. I think I'll try with some stones and not crystals, even thought about using  my sons plastic beads, you know the ones you ion, just to have some fun with it. Perhaps a make one with glow in the dark beads for my sister in law (she is a party girl)

 Plus black leather cord is not something that looks good on me either as you can see, and I am not a leather fan so this is (ofcause) fake leather, but still not me. But making the bracelet was a lot of fun and really not the last one I'll make but perhaps a goal for me is to stay more true to my self and my own style. Perhaps finding my style would be a key thing to do first, right :P

Earrings are up next

Nothing fancy just a nice pair of everyday wear earrings. I love this type of hoop, comfortable to wear and I don't drop them LOL ;) 

I saw these at MadDesigns, here's a link for ya 30 minute earrings I love the design, and so simple, you need to know C.R.A.W. to do this, I have a tutorial you can use ;)


 A pair of fancy earrings again to dark for me, but I still love them a lot. Aren't they cute? And very simple.

 Last but not least I have a ring I made. It is my design, I used Pondo stitch for this.

 Here it is on me. I love rings, but I have chubby fingers so it's rare I find rings that fit me. That is one of the reasons I taught my self how to bead.

So this is it for this time, take care and I'll be back soon with some pay it forward update ;) Yaii I do hope I have inspired some of you out there, feel free to contact me or leave a comment. I love hearing from you. ;)
