Random Ramblings

  • I am always on the lookout for puzzle pieces that can be made into jewelry because I have a good friend whose daughter is autistic.   When I won a GC to Creative Impressions, I felt like I hit a gold mine.  Tari has some beautiful buttons that are puzzle pieces and since she makes them herself, you are able to order the hole where you want them.  I ordered some with the holes on top.
  • Okay I am officially a brand snob.  One of my treats is kettle korn and I have been getting Orville Redenbacher.  Well the prices more then tripled in the last year so I decided to try another brand.  I picked up Safeway's brand since I have loved their other snacks but it just doesn't taste right.  Guess that I am going to have to bite the bullet and pay more.  Oh and cut back so I don't have a bag a night.
  • Why oh why is my muse being so contradictory?   She is flat out insisting that I use a bracelet bar for a necklace.
  • Well we put down the Earnest money on the house.  Wish us luck.  Both me and Saje are too beat up to even consider moving and finding a place as perfect as this one would be difficult.
  • I haven't a lot to show of in the way of new jewelry. Between designing for a challenge and getting sick on Wednesday, I only made one necklace.  The focal is from Ashbury Ave and it is hand-knotted up with Cherry Quartz.  You can find it here if you are interested in purchasing this feminine beauty.

  3. Tari's puzzle pieces are very cool. I will have to get one and make a necklace for my sister-in-law who is a puzzle person. Thanx for showing them to me.

    1. I was wandering around her site and found them. Once I saw that I could just get one hole the top and others on top and bottom, I just couldn't ressit
