Earrings and Fabric ~ Oh My :)

I have been as busy as Santas Elves the last couple weeks. But while I was working on some gifts and orders I made 3 pairs of earrings. I havent decided if they are for me or my website. LOL The first set of 3 is for one of my best customers and she is only 6 years old. Her name is Lily and she is the grand daughter of my friend Marie. By the way,,, if you love yummy, soft, beautifuly fragrant soap please visit her website.

I was out trim shopping and I was at this store called SAS. If you are from the Tempe area of Phoenix you probably have heard of this place. Its been here forever and you can get lost for hours. The prices are unbelievable too. Alot of trims are .25 and .49 cents a yard. I stumbled upon the designer samples that they were selling for 4.99 for each set of samples. My sweet friend that I was with, Pat bought these for me. They are plenty big enough for the projects I do and I am really looking forward to creating with these!

I hope you are all about ready for the big day. I dont think I am, but its all good. This week I have a ballet recital and school program for my grand daughter Mya and a cookie baking day on friday,,,so fair warning,,,Grandma alert!! My next post will probably be Grandma brag pictures. LOL Have a great week.... gail

Omg, that fabric is to DIE for!!! Luscious! I can see it now! Gail, I have been looking at the bell flower beads, too...I want to make some up for myself. As I prepare my store for sell out I took a lot of my jewelry off and decided that I would keep some and give the rest as gifts eventually.

Hey, have you ever thought of making rolled lollipop pillows???
