I've got a sweet film to keep me company while I make terrarium necklaces. So hilarious! What's your favorite quote from Best in Show?
Here's a sneak peek of what I've been up to! Casting vintage cabochons. These new sparkly teal resin ones will be made into rings. Let me know if you have your eye on one & I'll make a reserved listing for you in my Etsy shop.
Here's a close up of one of the cabochons I created with resin. You can see the original vintage Czech glass cabochon in the background. It's the blue & white one.
A Tea Leaf jewelry boxes get a makeover! I had a custom stamp made. Loving it.
I made new Father's Day greeting cards! They feature Yaquina Head Lighthouse which is located on the Oregon Coast. I will have them listed in my Etsy shop in the next few days.
Today's feature is "Freckles In Her Earrings" dangle earrings handcrafted by yours truly. These are my favorite modern, yet kitschy, earrings to date!
I am smitten over these vintage lucite white & gold speckled turquoise lentil shaped beads.
Their name is inspired by one of my favorite bands, The Postal Service's song, "Such Great Heights". It's such a lovely song.
These earrings are shipped in, I must say, an adorable jewelry box. The box's lid features my collage artwork.

I made a few post earrings today! They are so cute!
Today I made new rings with vintage glass cabochons!
My pink-handled scissors have taken a short break. I'll be picking them up again, but I needed a break from the first step... after doing it for 3 hours straight. Haha!
After cutting many, many shapes from the pages of a vintage dictionary... I moved onto folding, stapling, and punching. Finally that box of staples that I've been hoarding for almost ten years will get some use!
You know what's awesome about using dictionary pages? You won't be paying any attention to the words but then, all of the sudden, your mind will get glued in and you'll see a certain word that brings back a bunch of memories!
This has been quite the project. Thank goodness I have loads of patience. Indeed there are still some steps on the road ahead!
My pink handled scissors have been very busy lately. Once again I've been cutting through pages of yet another vintage dictionary.
Don't you just love the gold lettered tabs of this Merriam-Webster? Growing up my family had a similar navy blue dictionary.
Can anyone guess of what I'm making? In a few days I will be posting more pictures of this new craft project. Sneaky, huh? Stay tuned.
It's here! It's here! It's here... just in time for Valentine's Day!
