It Was A Very Good Week

Last week was a very good week. 
 It started out on Tuesday the 6th 
when I realized that I had orders in my Etsy shop
 for several sets of earrings. 
 I don't normally sell a lot on a Tuesday so I was pleasantly surprised.
  I also received this in the mail:
I'm not sure why
or even how!
I know I didn't buy them
but they are really COOL!
Clear rubber stamps that are the very kind
I would have bought for myself.
Thank you to whomever sent them to me!

I stayed up until well after midnite makin' up the earrings
that I had orders for.

I didn't give it alot of thought.
Several people had included them in some very nice treasuries.
Like this one.

That one night in October


Here's the link:

I took a good long look at it this weekend.
Holy Cow!
It made the front page!!
I had over 400 hits that day
and silly me - 
I had NO clue!

That got me all goosed up and I made jewelry all weekend.
I made these

I got out the dye
Managed to make the kitchen look like a crime scene.


Bingo Bathtub Bunny
(the spinner actually spins!)

Very Halloweeny with a little bit of "Camp."

A pendant made out of a
Madagascar Sunset Moth wing.
I rescued the butterfly from a really awful
coffee table piece from the 80's.

Soldered broken china earrings.

More creepy Halloween fun

And I finished up with a pair of blue earrings.
They look like a hurricane pattern on the front.

I guess all of the hurricane talk
just has that on my brain.
After all this jewelry making
my brain is tired!

So I finished with jewelry from Oz.

Don't make me get my flying monkeys!

Hope you have a great week too.

^^^^^ I agree with all of those comments! :)

I did make the little needle felted buddy on my sidebar~ I responded with an email, but it keeps bouncing back. So I'll tuck a little note here :)
If you peek at my sold "Etsy" items~ way back, some of the first pages... you can see some of my friends. I only work with wool in the winter. My face "cheeks" break out if I spend too much time handling it! Today was in the 50's and I was "itching" to needle felt!

Wishing you all the best!
Hooray for you~

You are SO talented, and I love seeing what you have been up to. You never cease to amaze me with your creativity!

I'm checking in for the first time in almost a month, and I wanted to thank you so much for your sweet words and kind thoughts on my blog. It's still kind of nuts around here, and I'm heading down tomorrow to check on the girls and see how they are. We are all missing Adelaide so much, but we are also thankful that we had her for so many wonderful years in our lives. She was an amazing lady.

Sending you warm hugs and all good wishes for a fun fall. Looks like you're off to good start, my friend!

I sent you the stamps! They are one of our newest clear sets, but they looked just like you, and I can't wait to see them turn into cool jewelry! Let me know when you make something and we'll link it to our blog... better make lots..they'll be popular! Off to shop, I see you've added many things I need.
