Cookie Sheet Calendar Finally Done!!!!!

I finally finished my cookie sheet calendar and it's hung on the wall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay I'm still doing a few updates to it but its on the wall :0) 

I placed two mini envelopes at the bottom entitled "birthdays" and  "special occasions" to place a list of family and friend events.  I was going to place them with in the match boxes but I figured that would be too much work opening each match box monthly to see who is having a birthday or occasion.  Guess I'm getting lazy in my old age :-)

Next big project is the altered book!

Enjoy your week and take care...

This Saturday is the unusual shape card class were we will be making a corset card, faux leather wallet, a surprise set of cards and this adorable gift holder, a shoe.  These shoes are adorable and perfect to hold small gifts.

I found the template online and the artist, Pam Curtis had two designs so I made them both.

Have a great week...

New Bracelets

Since it was Memorial Day weekend and all kinds of sales were going on I went to Michael's to pick up some craft goodies. While I was there I wanted to make a bracelet using bottle caps so I picked up a couple of bracelet chains and cool charms to add to my bracelets.

I flatten the bottle caps first than used alcohol inks in latte and copper to paint the caps to match the chain. I took some of my vintage belly dance photos, pages from an old book, some rhinestones and pieces from a watch to decorate the bottle caps. I used crystal lacquer to adhere the photos and embellishments to the bottle caps. Using jump rings I attached the bottle caps and charms to the bracelet chain and presto a beautiful piece of wearable art!
