SOMERSET HOME - NEW CHARMS - LIFE

I am surprised that I didn't really get overwhelmed by all the activities that happened this last week. I think also because of what we did yesterday....we hiked 6 miles, had a field trip to a local nursery, jumped in the pool before going to lunch to a wonderful restaurant and all was done with friends. Friends that are creative as I am, so we talked and talked all day long.
We need more days like this. And this morning on FB
my friend Tricia posted the perfect quote:
" You can always make money, you can't always make memories".
 and here are of the pieces that I made this week:
I am loving my Metal Solder Crowns more and more! This one I created a couple of days ago and instead of using rhinestone buttons I attached few ceramic roses all the way around. These crowns are so much fun to make! In fact I have some supplies left from the last class and I will be teaching one more class before my show.

Also if you are interested on taking future classes please visit my classes blog.
 

I also challenged my self few days ago on making these heart pendants. I need to practice some more but I really like what I made. 

 and.....I am so excited to receive a copy of Somerset Home  and here is the Organizer that I made and it was published! Thank you Christine Stephens for choosing my piece. 
Ciao for now

HAPPY!

I have to confess that I accomplished so much in the last three days and the sad part is that it's because my computer crashed!. I realize more and more that I spend too much time on the computer. It's not for fun it's most for work and yes sometime I get stuck on pinterest.....for inspirations. I need to be more active and I need to create more in my workshop. Is this a promise? no is not because I don't like to make this type of promises. I love blogging and I will continue posting when I create something new. But I will make sure to not get stuck on pinterest or facebook for hours. That's for sure!

The Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks is coming.....September 5th-7th, 2014 and I have so many cute ideas....here is one of the heart wall hanging that I created for the show. 
What do you think?




Ciao for now
