It's Wrapped, Stacked and Layered Time Baby!!

It's time for the
Wrapped, Stacked and Layered Challenge
hosted by Tracy Statler over on her blog
Make Bracelets!

One of the rules of the challenge was that you had to have at least three bracelets, two of which needed to be made by you, and wrap, stack or layer them and take some photos.

They could be any color, any size, shape, style, etc. that you wanted and the idea (and fun) was to be creative and let your imagination play!

I created all the bracelets you see pictured here
(some more recently than others!)
and I had tons of fun making them, too! 

I wear my bracelets 'wrapped and stacked' on a normal basis.

It was a bit harder to get photos than usual.

I'm not used to taking pictures of my own wrist!

Here's a few more bracelets I've created along
with some tips on wearing them!

When you find yourself wanting to
Wrap, Stack and Layer
just remember to have fun!

Now, go get your eyes filled with tons more arm candy by clicking through all the participants listed below in the Wrapped, Stacked and Layered Bracelet Challenge - you're gonna have so much fun and be so inspired!!

Thanks so much to Tracy for hosting this lovely bracelet challenge - it's so much fun!!

Oh, I almost forgot,...

Barbie joined in the fun today as well!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Wrapped, Stacked and Layered Arm Candy Baby!!


Wrapped, Stacked and Layered Bracelet Challenge

It's Almost Time!

Oh,...I'm excited for the Wrapped, Stacked and Layered Challenge hosted by Tracy Statler over on her Make Bracelets blog!

It's tomorrow, Saturday, April 21st, so you'll have to come back on over here in the morning and check out all the lovelies everyone will have posted on their blogs!!

Also this Saturday, my sis and I are hosting our Spring Jewelry Boutique over at her house.

We try to do this twice a year.
Once in the Spring and once in the Fall.

We always have so much fun!
We'll have live music by acoustic guitarist
Preston Hindman

You can listen to one of my favorite songs he wrote,
 Remi's Song - here!

And, we've got Mina coming back this Spring to give her famous 30 minute massages, too.
She's fabulous - let me tell you!

We always serve a few cocktails and have some fruits and veggies along with tortilla chips a my sis's famous Pico de Gallo! YUMMY!!

Oh, and of course there's fun jewelry to drool over, too!

So, if you're here in AZ and get the chance, email me for directions and stop on by! 

It's gonna be a great Saturday!!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Fun!

Fun Things,...

I really wanted to tell you all about a few amazing things happening on some of the blogs I follow.

1st up, over on Brandi Girl Blog
(you know you LOVE her blog as much as I do!!) 
Brandi's offering her new Photoshop Elements class
at a super incredible price.

If you have PS Elements and need any sort of help, Brandi's your girl!  I have Photoshop CS (and don't have a clue how to really use it other than to crop, lighten up, and put a couple of words on a photo!)  and I'm thinking of getting Elements just so I can take Brandi's class and finally start to understand some things and get a little un-techno challenged! So, click on over and read all about it. You shouldn't miss this great opportunity, okay?

Next, Lori Anderson is having an incredible give-a-way over on her blog Pretty Things.

Lori Anderson - Pretty Things

Again, this is one you don't want to miss out on and she's announcing winners on Sunday, April 1st - so get your bum over to her blog and check out the amazing Scott David Plumlee DVD's she's dishing out.
Holy cow are they fabulous!!

And, last but not least today, I wanted to tell you about the "Wrapped, Stacked and Layered Challenge" over on

I love making all sorts of wrapped and stack-able bracelets. I usually have my leather knotted pearl bracelets stacked and layered on my own wrists (check out my right arm here in this video) and so I'm super psyched for this challenge! 

Plus, the reveal date is Saturday, April 21st which is the same day my sis and I are hosting our next jewelry party over at her house, so this is prompting me to make some extra bracelets for that!  You only have until April 2nd, which is Monday, to get signed up.  Whatcha waiting for?
Go on over and sign up, baby!!

Beaded Wrap Bracelets by MiShel Designs

I know there's a lot more going on out there in blogger land than I can post here right now, so please take the time to read down my "Links" list and my "Blogs I Follow" list too.

That way you won't miss anything like I did this last week or so!

Until Next Time,

Peace, Love and Super Cool and Fun Stuff Going On!!



Working on Color!

For those of you who know me personally you know that my closet probably has fewer than five articles of clothing with 'prints' (this includes scarves, too!) and that most of my colors are, shall we say,...neutral and rather drab.

Translation: browns, greys, black, navy blues and an occasional pop of dark red - gotta love RED!

Anyhoo, I was reading Tracy Statler's blog post today over on Make Bracelets and she's got these amazing colors going on with all the goodies she just got from a bead show that was just in her area.

Her post was quite timely since I've been trying to incorporate more color into my designs. 

You really gotta check out her blog and all her yummy finds - they're super gorgeous!

Tracy also gives you a head's up on some great blogs that have various color palettes and things related to colors.

One of the blogs she mentions is one of my favorite blog 'must' reads - Brandi Girl Blog.

Brandi's blog has really been helping me get out of my neutral-zone as I try to rev up my use of color.

I know,...some of the things I've been creating lately are just white pearls and silver - so typical me - but I'm mixing it up a little bit and adding a few other colors as well. 

(Slowly but surely - don't rush me!)

What I'm curious about now though is this:

Do you tend to 'play it safe' with the colors of your
clothes and your accessories?

Or, do you jump in with both feet at once
and dance with different colors regularly?

Let me know what colors you're drawn to right now and why?

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Rainbows of Colors!
