Hello all! While waiting for my supplies to come in for Dawn's wedding jewelry, I went ahead and made their wedding cake forks! I like them, I REALLY like them! The pattern on the stemware is classy and simple lines........and bought at Big Lots! I think I might have found a new store to visit more than once a year......where has it been all my life? Hope you all have a great Monday! Enjoy!

Here I am trying hard not to let it get me down! I hate negativity, as it breeds, but oh is it hard to find some possitivity in my life these last four days! Mary Sunshine will hopefully be back soon! Until then friends, keep YOUR head up and go create! Enjoy!

........Orla Kiely. She begged me to make her a necklace this weekend. Okay, pestered and nagged more like it! So I made three pendants from 3 different Nunn Design pendant findings! Antique Silver, Antique Gold and Antique Copper. The resin did not give me too much trouble this time....just small bubbles, as usual!
I need to let you all know that there is an issue here on the home front that may have me slowing the blog and shop down a little. Please know that I am STILL here, just concentrating on the issue at hand! Thank you all for understanding! Enjoy!

Hello all! I was lucky enough to be chosen for the March Earthenwood Design Team! I TRULY was ecstatic!! Melanie sent me a GORGEOUS resin key......oh heavens it is beautiful! It has a blue/purple shimmery glow about it! They can be found at Melanie's Big Cartel Shop, Earthenoxide.
The one I received has a leaf and recycled printed paper in the resin! Stunning! I knew when I saw it I want it to hang from one of my sparkly wheel toggle clasps.....I had been wondering what they would look like just hanging from a chain in front. I then added great peanut seed beads, weaved in and out of the antiqued brass chain. At first I was going to hang the key from the sparkly wheel with an antiqued brass jumpring, but decided to use the same seed beads in the wheel and weave it into the design.....I really liked that! Turned out better!
A HUGE "Thank you" to Melanie! I LOVE this necklace and hope to have it listed in the SHOP soon!
I had my band filled on Wednesday, which means I am on liquids for two days. I decided to torture myself by making a homemade 9 layer lasagna for my husband! It is my moms recipe from when I was little and VERY good!
Layer 1: Lasagna Noodles cooked Al Dente (9 minutes)Layer 2: Shredded Mozzarella cheese mixed with cottage cheese and Italian seasoning
Layer 3: Turkey burger and sauce, simmered on the stove
Repeat Layers for 4, 5, & 6
Layer 7 More Noodles
Layer 8 More Meat sauce
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, take out and add
Layer 9 Shredded Mozzarella cheese
Bake for 10-15 more minutes
There you have it! Try it and enjoy!!!
