I'm glad you arrived, please do come in.. I hope you enjoy my Homemade crafty items. Feel free to leave a comment and if you have any questions I'll do my best to reply. I've been having better luck with my Mojo but still have a tendency to get lost in the game. I lose my mojo and I just wait for some inspiration to hit and then I'll scrap again. I'm sure others know what I'm talking about. We just plain run out of ideas for a moment! Sooner or later things are kicking back into gear! YAY! For those that stop by and leave comments, I greatly appreciate it. Even stop by just to say Hi.. I will try to get back to your blog too. I hope you have a great day, I hope you enjoy your visit!

Christmas is just Around The Corner, Are You Ready??

Want to make that special something for a good friend for christmas???  Or even make them for your own tree.  I have done both.   I've been doing this for years now...  Lots of work to make plenty for a tree, but they are awesome once they are done!!   If there are enough that would really like to try making them, please leave a message and let me know.. If there are enough that really would like, I can be convinced to make a picture tutorial for my blog.   For right now, I'm sharing my pictures with you.   Thanks for looking.

Beautiful Wedding Weekend

This weekend, I watched.. and cried, as my daughters best friend, who's is like my own daughter, celebrate her very beautiful wedding.   She looked so pretty.  Its so hard to believe  that Jenny is now a married woman!!  Wow.   I wanted to make her something special, that came from my heart, something that she could look at everyday, and know its from me, but also partly made from her.  

I made her this clock...  I've spend sometime getting just the right things for this very special gift.  The empty spots you see are for pictures that have special meaning for her, from her wedding.   Alot of time and love went into this.. and I have talked to her tonight and she loves it!!   I just wanted to share with you a picture.  Thanks for taking a peek.. feel free to leave a comment.

(the time on the camera was not set right lol oops)
The white scrolls on the sides are actually cut from wood, (I can't remember the company name) unfortunately because the background is white.. and I painted the scrolls white, they just were not standing out there best for the picture...  but they look really quite stunning with the black and blue.  I'm SOOO happy she loved it..   Thanks for taking a look..  Stop by again and feel free to say HI!
Congratulations once again Jen..  You were absolute beautiful!   Love you, Sherry

Second Homemade Shoe Is Complete.

This is my second attempt at shoe making..  for those that have questioned me, NO this is not a real shoe thats decorated, its made of mostly paper, styrofoam and a plastic tube for the spike heal.  My swap buddy loves earth tones.    Its alittle out of my area of comfort, as you can probably tell from the rest of my blog, I love pinks and purples, and pastels..     I did my best trying to work with colors that I just wasn't sure about.  I sure hope I did good..   Here are a few pictures,  thanks for stopping by, feel free to share a comment.  
Finished today Aug 22,  2010


 Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoyed my homemade shoe.  Hope you had a great weekend.   Sherry

Walk A Mile In My Shoes!

But you might not get to far because it's made all out of paper!  hehe    I've recently  joined a swap for making  a shoe fit for a queen.  Marie Antoniette was a queen of elegance and style.  She loved her beautiful dresses and shoes.  Our request: make a shoe that Marie would be proud of.   This is my first attempt at shoe making..  I will share with you my first and once I'm done making my others for the swap, i will share them too.. so stick around and wish me luck!! lol

Thanks for taking a peek at my newest addition.  I will add the others once they are completed.

He Found My Sparkle!!!

I knew I had to give my camera to my son Kyle, he takes much better pictures than I do.  He really brought the sparkle out on these one..   I hope you can see when I say they ALL just sparkle from every direction! As with all my flowers.. the leaves and roses are not attached to make it easier for shipping.  Sometimes the roses are slightly crooked which wasn't noticed, but not a problem.
Thanks again for taking a peek!

Trying to Capture that Elusive Glitter And Shine

I have in front of me a box full of gorgeous flowers, each sparkling with so much gleam and shine.
But as I take each picture the twinkles, and glittering petals disappear.   GRRR  lol  I try over and over trying to get them to show the true likeness..  Here is another attempt as trying to show just how much these shine.  Even the leaves have been dolled up and look fantastic in there green gleam!
This picture is slightly out of focus, but you can see alot of twinkling and sparkles, now picture every flower, all the leaves, just shine so pretty.
I hope you enjoy my little display of soft pastel colors.   After holidays are over I may put these in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested.   If you are interested in them right now, feel free to leave a comment.

Thanks again for stopping by, its always great to have company.

Summertime Flowers

A few weekends ago, I decided to make up some more flowers.  I just LOVE these.. there is so much glitter and shine, but I'm disappointed as the pictures don't do them justice.  I'll post a few to try and capture the glitter and sparkle!
