My bracelet

Tonight I made a bracelet by hand.  I wanted a charm bracelet to represent my family.  I still want to add to it, which I think is the beauty of a charm bracelet...  I have on here right now a little boy and girl, to represent my kids, 2 dog bones for my fur babies, and some hearts to represent my love for them all, I couldn't find one for my hubby, so I will have to add that one later.

A potential new hobby

So I have decided to try my hand at making jewelry.  I was checking out the clearance shelf in hobby lobby a few weeks ago and came across some charms and decided to look.  I ended up with a bunch of charms, of which I have only taken pictures of one.  I made these earrings and I thought they were neat looking.  I have posted them for sale on my local  yard sale site.  I thought about putting them on etsy, but I feel it's a little out of my league right now.  Maybe in the future.

More recent stuff...

Ok, so the one above I like a lot.  The pictures really inspired the rest this time, again this one is a major catch up.  About 3 years behind.  I guess the important part is that I'm doing it now.  :)  

The one to the right is for my daughters, my husband threw her up in the air, and she LOVED it!  I like the background because it gives it a breezy look.  And I like that it's all in black and white, I thought at first it would be too dark but I think it turned out ok.
 This last one is when we went putt putting??? lol sp
I actually put a pop dot under the course I made so it sticks up.  It's hard to tell but I used the lattice tool in the windmill on the blades, and when I peeled the blades up none of the pieces came out, but I liked it so I left it and I think it looks better than it would if I had popped them out.
I also added text to a picture in photoshop.

My recent work

So it's again been a long time since I've posted... I feel like I start every post like that.  Anyway we had a lot of family problems come up so I've been.... distracted.
So... I have recently done a few things This one is pretty self explanatory, it's for my daughters album.  I decided to do albums for my kids instead of a traditional baby book.  I got the imaginisce i-rock tool and this is the second project I made with it.  I made the butterfly on my PI.
I really should learn better how to use my camera, I hate the lighting on some of these photos.

Next I did a page for my sons book.  This is his first bath at the hospital.  My husband actually did it.  Talk about playing catch up, this was almost 4 years ago! aahh I'm terrible.  ; )

I also did this one my husband snapped this photo of the kids in her room playing.  I don't think she could even walk yet.  I used a poem I found online on the tag.  I don't usually have this much space left over, but I like this one.

 I absolutely love this one, with the bird.  I used a file from the pazzles craft room.  Actually the border is a file there too, I just multiplied it and welded it to make the border.
