Master Bedroom Video

I found the usb so decided to upload tonight.  I am very proud of myself for figuring this one out by myself.  WH will also be impressed I'm sure.

Well big Wonderful Hubby had to help me afterall b/c I had some trouble w/ the upload.  Now I think I know how to do this by myself.(maybe)

Working on our Bedroom!

Our house has been a work in progress since we bought it 6 year ago (I think! I have no memory)  I do however know that we (my wonder hubby WH and I) have not been in our master bed-bath in about 1 1/2 years and counting.  We moved into our attached garage turned playroom and have been there during our remodel.  It's great fun!  Sarcasm in voice.  Anyway...we have been working pretty hard over the past few months to get things on the move.  In our defense we do have 2 boys that like to play sports that keep our weekends and free time pretty busy.  So we/ (WH and I) just work on the rooms when the opportunity and money arises. 
We bought our basic rancher and I think there was wallpaper in every room or dark paneling in every other room.  But we thought that it had potential and decided to go for it.  like I said we are still in the remodel phase!  We have done a ton: re-sided, new windows, gutters, added detached garage, back porch, kitchen addition, attached garage remodel, paint-scrape-gut-rip-saw-hammer-and nail every inch of this poor house!!  I will show some older pics later but just wanted to show a few of the master bed-bath progress.

Mauve 3 matching sections of Mauve wallpaper!  Lovely brown carpet.

This is the vanity that was in the bedroom.  Yes - in the bedroom!  to the right the toity and left the closet. 

Shower area complete w/pink and mauve accents.

More floral wallpaper (the thick stuff!)  Luckily that was just ripped off in the demo process.  and yes-people that is a bidet!  Pretty much just used that bad boy for storage!  Check out that floring I think we removed 3 layers here.

Where the vanity used to be.

Doorway and looking at where the shower used to be.

 I was going to try to post a video of our progress but can't seem to find the cord to up load so I will try that one another time! 
Thanks for stopping by and please continue to return for updates.  Remember- I work at a much quicker pace when I am creating jewelry and pendants so please do not be afraid!!

Valentine's Day - Spring Pendants!

I have been working over the past 2-3 weeks on several new items to get out and ready for Valentine's Day!  I am excited to show you some new washer pendants and some dominos that are sure to get you ready for Valentine's Day and spring! 

I know that most of you have seen how to make these washer pendants out in blog land and I have adapted a few touches to make them work for me and the pendants that I create.  I just use scrapbook paper that I like no particular brand.  I get my washers from Home Depot for 19-35 cents depending on size.  Some of the largest ones I have found at Ace Hardware for 35-50 cents.  I like using matte Mod Podge to seal the paper and attach the paper to washer.  I have used all three of the lacquers pictured below.  The beads I use come from various places, just usually the ones that I think look the best with the paper chosen.  Please look through to see what you like, if you would like to purchase one email or comment and I will be happy to get something to you.  They are all finished I just didn't put the individual pictures here for space.   They are priced $10-$15.

If you live here in Maryville, I have many items at a local store called Threadberries Monogram Market.  You can stop by and check out my things as well as all the great items that Michelle has to offer.  You can check out her beautiful work here:

Valentine Dominos!!
Here are a few special dominos that I have created for this "love" holiday!  This the first time that I have used 3-D puffy items on the domino and I absolutely LOVE how they turned out.  I am very excited to have customers check these out.  These are a combination of 3-D stickers, flat crystals, and stamps!  They are all $12 each and come with a tie ribbon or cord.  Let me know what you think!

Personalized Pendants I have showed before but wanted to show a new KEY CHAIN one that I actually made during Christmas.  These would be great for the guy in your life as well.  
Give a personalized key chain for a fun and whimsical gift from the kids or from you - the sweetheart!  Key Chains with a charm are $15, Personalized Pendant Necklaces are $20 and up (depending on additional charms or washers).

I am currently working on ways to add more than 5 names to one necklace for Mothers and Grandmothers with larger families.  Hopefully that will be coming soon!  Especially in time for Mother's Day.
Have a great day and I would love to hear your comments.
