Wanna get creative......



My Pretty Little Things.....


Glass slide craft chrams

After buying the quirky but inspiring "Pretty Little Things" book by Sally Jean (locals may have seen her charms at the Dear Lizzie boutique- you can find them online also), I was itching to get crafty.

I made these as a first time experiment, and with a cute bow hanging on my purse I am thrilled with the results (I am the one in the pink tutu), so that is mine. Since then I have made a few for gifts, a necklace charm, and keychain... and I am hooked. There is something about being surrounded by paper and glass, and mastering a smoky soldering iron that is very empowering (even if I am not that great yet).

I will be adding more artistic notes soon- as they are what will get me through this summer, for sure.
