Funky Necklace

I have drank way to much coke tonight, not tired! I have a busy day tomorrow and I'm so going to regret it!!!! I decided to finish a project I have been working on. I made this funky necklace using fragments, memory glass and frame, some of Tim's Ideaology and Wendy's stamps. I used frosted glass in the frame as that is what I had on hand but I think I will order some clear ones and change it. I think I will also order the more silver frames and change that to when they come in. It was a fun little project to make!

Have a good one!!

Grunge Paper Rose Frame

What a world win of a couple months I have had!!! Christmas, bad weather, new job, now husband Bob had to have triple by-pass surgery last Wed. This was his 3rd open heart surgery! He is still in the critical care unit but is doing pretty good. So most of my time since Wed. has been spent at the hospital, man that tires me out more then working all day!!! Due to bad weather I'm home early today and it feels pretty good! I know he is in good hands so I'm going to enjoy being home and not just sitting around at the hospital.

Here is what I made with my twist on the grunge paper roses, we are doing a class making them in March. Looks a lot better in person, they turned out really pretty.

It has been raining here then snowing then more rain & snow, roads going into town today were awful, I had to putz down the road going 20-25 miles an hour!! Made it to my grandsons birthday party and up to the hospital to see DH. Plows finally came out so coming home wasn't so bad, thank goodness!!! Here is a couple pictures from the BD Party..

And here is a couple pictures of some winter fun from a couple of weeks ago at Landi's. Chad was pulling the boys around with his snowmobile. The boys were having a ball!!!

Thank goodness for those grandson's of mine, always a good time!!!

Have a good one everyone!!

A Little Twist on Grunge Paper Roses

I decided to try something different with my grunge paper roses and added book pages and spritzed them with perfect pearls. The pictures don't really do them justice but they turned out pretty cool! I'm going to use them for a class at the Arts & Crafts center.

And here's one of my little Rock Stars, a Christmas present he has been having a lot of fun with!!
I played with my Yudu I got for Christmas yesterday and ruined two emulsion sheets, thank goodness I found some at our local Michaels but didn't get a chance to try it again today, so hopefully tomorrow!! Hopefully after two trys I think I know what to do now!!geezzzz!!
Have a good one!

MIA here or what!!! Between Christmas, company & being sick I haven't done anymore then I had to!! I have had a cold since before Christmas and just doesn't want to go away, at least the fever & body aches are gone! Our Christmas was very different this year, because of the storm coming in we ended up having our Christmas Eve on Wed. night as two of kids had to get elsewhere. What fun with all 4 grandsons together!! Then we got stormed in for 2 1/2 days!!!! Couldn't get where we were going to go on Christmas day so luckily I had taken out a turkey out of the freezer on Thurs. just in case so at least we had a good dinner on Fri.!! I felt so bad for Shad & family as they wanted to do a few things and see people, all they got was stuck in the house with mom & dad!! We did get dug out on Sun. and had a belated Christmas dinner etc. at SIL which was very nice! Thank goodness Shad was here as he helped us out a lot getting dug out!!! I didn't get any Christmas cards sent this year (sorry) but loved all the ones I received Thank you! I lucked out with presents this year and received a ton of scrapbook paper, 3 sets of Wendy Vecchi's stamps & a Yudu!!! I haven't had time to play with that yet but hope to soon!

Here is a layout I did with some of my new paper and I tryed out my i-top, fun!! I covered the brads with rock candy stickles, love that stuff!!

I have been working part time at the Arts & Crafts at the base, very interesting and learning how to engrave & frame! I will be heading up a few classes so I have been working on that when I can. Here is a pic of one of the classes we will be doing, a covered picture frame with grunge paper roses, the roses are so fun to make! If anyone has some ideas for classes I would love to here them!

Hope to play with my yudu today so hopefully post some projects in the next few days. Have a good one everyone!!
