nice rack.

with my jewelry collection slowly increasing, i needed a way to keep my necklaces from getting all tangled up. so, i bought a cheap bulletin board from target, and revamped it into a jewelry board!

back on the needle.


after an extended crafting hiatus due to exhaustion & stress, i was itching to start stitching! these are a few things that i've been working on lately!

wall hangings for my new apartment!



(please excuse my atrocious photography/wall hanging skills!)

door hanging for my cousin.

and one for her sister too!

make-up bag for my friend amber! amber is ridiculously talented with cosmetic artistry (she hordes make-up like i horde craft supplies!), and loves things that are gory & girly.

she has glitter running through her veins.
my first successful attempt at metallic thread!

make me a reusable shopping bag swap.

these are the bags i made for the reusable shopping bag swap on craftster.

i used a green floral/polka dot fabric on both bags [it might be hard to see, but the polka dots are made up of tiny flowers], and lined each with a contrasting fabric, and made coordinating straps.


each bag is about 14" wide & 20" long, with 14" straps.

hmmm...

i have been toying with the idea of opening an etsy shop.
friends of mine have suggested it, and i love making things for other people.
but, i'm not sure if my quality of work is up to par -- i'm intimidated by the talent of the amazing ladies i've seen on there!

i welcome suggestions/feedback.
