Happy Monday ~ anyone showing and telling?

Hi everyone... I have been soooo busy and I have been able to get so much done. I cant post alot of it just yet because its for the Make Mine Pink Business Recognition Compition and it top secret. (sshhh :) ) Creatively I had been a little stuck,but this has been an awesome week. It was just clicking and I am pretty happy with everything. I havent done too much else, just in the zone and I like it there. LOL

The first thing I am posting is this little babyshoe pincushion I made. I have seen these pop up once in awhile, but I thought they were so cute, I just wanted to try one. Next is a necklace I made using one of Cindy Houot's ceramic roses. I love here roses for my jewelry. The next things are a little different for me, but I like to mix it up sometimes. These are my pirate girl earrings. Its a carved bone bead. If nothing else, halloween is just around the corner. These next earrings are holding the planet in your hands, the sun and oceans, its up to each of us! The last thing is a simple necklace, but has an elegance to it also. So thats what I have for you this week. I will have alot of new stuff to show in a couple weeks and tons to add to my website. So keep posted. Until next time........gail
