Yipee! Christmas in July!

Oohh - lovely pink boxes in the mail? With Lori's name on it? You know this is going to be something amazing. I was so excited I didn't even wait until I got in the house - I'm like a crazy person at the mailbox giggling and tearing the padded envelope open!

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!' She chortled in her joy!!

Yes, chortled! So much fun in one little box ~ how could this be possible?? I don't even want to go to work today (and I love my job!) I want to stay home and play with these treasures.  

Thank you, thank you, thank you Lori Anderson!

A Recent Passion

Wire! I love wire! I especially love the colors - Parawire is my brand of choice, lots of colors and sizes to choose from, great prices and quick shipping. I found a book at one of my favorite used bookstores awhile back - Totally Twisted by Kerry Bogert - I was hooked. Bought several other books and began to play with different techniques. I'm not an expert yet, but I'm making progress..

As you can see the possibilities are limitless... hooks, springs, jump rings, connectors, coils, head pins and they all add a completely new dimension to jewelry. I love that I can have a hook or jump rings in whatever color I want.  Choices! I love having more choices!

If you haven't gotten around to trying wire.... get some! You're going to be amazed!

The Eyes Have It

As a part time wearer of glasses, (can't see a thing close up!), I've long been frustrated with the ugly selection of eyeglass chains - especially those hideous little black thingys at the ends. Necessity being what it is I had to take matters into my own hands. The result has been so much fun! The added bonus of this eyeglass chain is that if you position it in the right place, it looks like you have earrings on!!

Love your glasses - I do now!
