Sat-a round-Day

I have an old chest of drawers hiding away in the closet of my spare room. Its beat up pretty bad and I want to do something to it, but what. Well, I started searching the Internet and came up with decoupaging. (To learn more check out this do it yourself website) I am thinking instead of using paper, I would find fabric or lament to adhere to the drawers, find modern hardware to fancy the chest of drawers the sand and refinish the skeleton. I'll have to start keeping an eye out for interesting patterns to use to decoupage my chest of drawers and quit hiding it away.

At it again

After about a five year hiatus, my friend got me hooked back into jewelery making. I'm hooked. Here are some samples of the things I made lately. The bracelet was specially made for a birthday present for a friends mother. Orange and gold beads were connected every other onto two parallel silver chains. The necklace is a simple ribbon knotted with stones. I saw this in a store and thought...I could do that.
