Mama's Birthday Pearl Bracelet

I am off on a jet plane tomorrow at 4am ... headed to Houston to House Hunt!!! Wish me luck y'all!
Today I thought I would show you what I made my Mama for her Birthday.
Yes, Her Birthday was last week, so it is LATE.
Ah, well. better late than never!

I made 7 or 8 strands and went crazy twisting them together, and viola!

Here are the beads closer up.

Crazy Company Countdown... POST TWENTY NINE SIMPLY BETTY

Crazy Company Countdown is BAAaaaack. I am still counting down all of my stamp companies... it is a sickness. I know you are ill too! :)

Today, I have a new one, well NEW to me!!! I picked up this pretty little betty from Simply Betty Stamps! Her name is London, and she is adorably Emo!
She reminds me of My petite blonde sister... who looks sweet and innocent even with skulls in her hair! 
The teal color is a copic custom color created by my friend Kel and I, BG 43!
Run, do not walk over to Simply Betty Stamps for a WICKED sale she has going on now!

Cricut Vinyl Water Bottles!

Today I cut adhesive vinyl for some fun aluminum sport bottles that I picked up t the $1 store... yes the $1 store!
Tinkerbell Energetic is for my son's girlie bff, the soccer one has a soccer kicking boy on the back, and the other is for my 18 month old - she calls it her 'dink' (drink)! She loves it.
What is nice - the design peels off when we want a new one, and it washes by hand with light soap.

Knotted Jewelry!

Add to list of things I love... ribbon and beads!
ooh La La.
These Necklaces are just ribbon and beads! The ribbon is double over and tied in knots to hold beads in place! 
These are for my Mom's Boutique. I put Arelia's pretties tags on them... My daughter Arelia, calls these her pretties... she LOVES pretties. She has one of her own! 

These are super easy to make and Hobby Lobby has bags of these beads in variety for really cheap and they were 50% off!!! The ribbon was the .25 cent kind!
Can you spot my little Arelia's hand, as she grabs her pretty off the mat.

Big Happenings.

I am home from a relaxing week of Island living... ahhhhh. Now that is the life! My husband is ready to retire to the beach!
We took off as soon as school was out, and before our big MOVE. 
Yes, I said MOVE!
We are relocating to HOUSTON!!!
It seems my crafting just can not catch a break with all of the excitement lately! 
But, I do plan on doing LOTS of crafting this summer before our move!
If you are a Texas crafter.... leave me a comment or let me know your fave Texas hot spots!!! 
If you are a Houston area store owner, in need of copic certified instructor, or just a rockin' crafty chic extraordinaire... I am available! Ha.

We will be house hunting at the end of this month, and moving before the school year starts!

In re my bag below: some answered questions...
It was super easy... I stamped with memento, and then put a piece of cardboard in the bag and colored it, I went featherlite with the ink. Then I heat set it. It was super fast.

Stamped Canvas Bag

My Little Sweet pea is a little over 1 1/2, she LOVES purses. She has quite a few, but we found some canvas ones in the 'alter box'. So she and I stamped on some... lots of fun. She loves her new purses!
And I did one with the fantasy art stamp line from Sweet Pea Stamps!
I stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copics, followed by heat setting!
We are on vacation right now! Edisto Island.... a much need break from life!!!

Scarves are HOT!

My Mom likes to be fashionable. Why not... she is young... in her 40's, I won't give away her age. But she is a good looking woman - I won't call her a cougar either! Ha.
She was recently in New York... Shopping... and I was put in the hospital while she was there. So, she came right from New York to see me, with all of her shopping bags... she is from Detroit, and I am in South Carolina.
Well, as usual, she had a bunch of stuff she wanted me to 'replicate'.
One of the items was a scarf like this: 
 
Now, the one she brought me had beads tied into the ends too.
So here are my replicas... they look so cute tied all different ways, and even worn as a skirt over pants. Ooo So Cute. 


I dare you to do a search for jersey torn knotted scarves and see how many looks are out there with these scarves and how easy it is to replicate your own... with cheap material and some craft beads!
