It's fall and it's time to get some jewelry done

Seed pods abound there all on the ground. Gather them up to bring to the table I'm ready and willing and some say I'm able. Making fall jewelry is fun and relaxing until Novemeber when the pressure is taxing. Get ready and set and go find some natural pods and seeds with Metal clay and kiln that's all you'll need. Of course we don't always need a kiln  a torch can work too. It's easy and fun and something to do!

What great presents for others! And a piece of where you live. Make sure the item is large enough and yet small enough to be an interesting piece. You can combine some of them like the spiral mesquite that pod is so cute alone but also as a group. Pictures of that one next time.

Cool weather time to get some work done

Oh I love the cool weather during the fall. I can't wait to get out my warmer clothes and make some presents, cards and fun jewelry things. Plus it is a great time to get the dogs outside to work. The sun is still shinning brightly and the coolness in the air just makes you energized.

week 3 neutral colors

neutral tones
This weeks color selection I really liked a lot. Maybe because it does remind me of a sundae. yum

But truly the colors I was really drawn to I might have to do another one with more browns. I only use what I have available. The flower was colored with copic marker because I only had pink flowers. I like it and maybe will do better the next time.

Check out this eco-friendly video. I know it's Halloween but don't we start thinking of crafts for the holidays in enough time to actually collect these items?

OK for those who feel that it's just a tad too early here is something I think is awesome for all those tee's that you got from vacation. Or just can't part with she makes it so easy to do. Except I'd use a machine to sew the ends instead of hand sewing just because I like having a nice strong seam.

What a great idea and I love pouches.

week 2 card

Well here is my card from week 2 Card Camp. The color combo we were using was a bit difficult for me to identify just because I think the computer can distort colors like the tv.

 I've taken a picture of the supplies I used, except for the card stock. I'm just using any card stock I have because I'm just testing things out. I've also decided to show you the cards I was making before I started card camp. I anticipate improving by the end of summer.

So send me your feed back and let me know your ideas.

Card making class

I'm taking a card class and it is so awesome! The problem is I have so many things I want to do and not enough time. Every day there is a new idea presented by awesome artists and crafters I can't think of what to do next. It is a great class and I'm meeting a ton of people and seeing their blogs.

If I finally get going I'll post what I make and hope that they come out nice.
