|My version of sugar plums!|
On a bluer note, my blog is being neglected because of this festive season. A couple posts back I talked about how much I love to make handmade presents. Well, Christmas is no exception. This year I decided to try to give at least one handmade gift to every single person on my gift list. And of course I go overboard and load up on projects that are time consuming and intense. “Nah, I can do it. It won’t take long at all!”--Has become my mantra this season…I seem to be repeating that over and over, more and more!
But it’s worth it in the end to see my projects light up someone’s eyes. So I'm hangin' my busy season up on the line for a bit, to show you some of the stuff I have been working on…I can’t show the entirety of the projects for obvious reasons but at least you can see why my blog has been a little forgotten about! (I will get better at this.)
This year seems to have a leather theme...with a little jewelry thrown in:
It was nice to have such lovely backgrounds for my pictures...and why don't we have lights up all the time?
On to the jewelry...I think I have a passion for stamping. First leather, now metal...
Here is a double strand necklace...it has three stamped charms on it. Sorry I couldn't show the bottom or side charms, they have names on them. At least you could see my little feather stamp! He's my favorite!
Here are some pendants I stamped...might just keep these for myself!
And there you have it! All that stamping is what's taking up my blogging time. At least it gives me something to blog about : )
Until next time...(hopefully it won't be so long!)
