These are the goodies I won from Kristi Bowman Designs over on Dreamsome Designs Blog (plus a couple of added things I just HAD to purchase!) Are they just the coolest ever, or what?!
I'm sure you can imagine how excited and lucky I felt when I received all these gorgeous hand crafted components this week - I mean, really!!?!! My mind is swirling with all the potential.
Here's a little secret - these are the exact pieces I would make,...if only I could. Or should I say, if I dared. I have PMC, I just don't work with it very often because I think I'm not that good at it, even though I had a wonderful teacher! (Kathy Hunter, please take a bow!)
Kristi's "Snake Charms" are my favorite - look at them - they're fabulous!! But since I have absolutely no neck what so ever, and I do want earrings, I will save those for something else and use these ever amazing squares and make them into some cool earrings for myself. They'll probably become my 'everyday' earrings - I tend to wear the same thing each day while I work and these would be perfect and very cool looking, don't you think?!
Anyhoo - I'm excited about all these pieces and I was dreaming of things to do w/them. I kinda think it's a bit "cheesy" to make a piece of jewelry with something you've won and then sell it on your online store (just my own opinion - to each his/her own!) so I decided I will keep the squares for myself and make gifts with the rest of these wonderful treasures!! I might just end up having to keep something else too - we'll see! :) What's your opinion on selling your 'winnings' - is it cool or not, or does it depend on the situation? Give me some insight here folks.
So, I'm off to make a cool pair of earrings w/these amazing squares - got a date tonight w/the hubby!
I wish you all a very Safe, Fun and Happy Labor Day Weekend! Enjoy your last 'true summer weekend' and create it beautifully!!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Lovely Gifts of Labor!!
