Been sick lately and sometimes I get very bored lying around, so I got out the beads and made these two necklaces. Most of the beads on these two necklaces are from an awesome bead store in Surprise, AZ called Confetti Beads. If you are ever in the area and love beads, you must check them out! Hope you are all enjoying your autumn so far :)

An autumn inspired necklace (even though the cool air of autumn is nowhere near showing up here! :( How is the weather where you are?

I have finally had a little time to create recently and I have been wanting to make jewelry. Here are a few of the necklaces I've created. Of course, the pictures do not show off the beauty, vibrancy and sparkle of the beads. What have you been creating lately?

I cannot believe how long it has been since I've posted anything here :( This is the first art I have made in months! Once it gets warm enough to get the pool out for the girls in the backyard, I should have more time to make art. I love getting my stuff out to create on the patio table while they're having fun playing outside. Hope you are all doing well and enjoying life! :)

I am still here! The weather here has been so nice lately that we have been going on tons of walks and to lots of parks...basically just having a lot of fun and enjoying the outdoors. I had a little bit of art time with my friend Carmen over the weekend and I made a fun necklace. It isn't scanning well, so sometime soon hopefully I can get a good picture of it with the camera and get it up here. I am also doing a colloborative project with my friend Sandee for something, but I'm going to be hush-hush about it for now. I have also become involved with Facebook (which is quite time-consuming) but is so great in the fact that it really does help me keep in touch with a lot of people better! So, that's what's been going on with me and I am really going to try and be better about updating my blog more often. Hope you are all doing great :)

This is a box I altered for an 'Altered Candy Heart Box' swap in one of my groups. It started as the usual red box with a tacky picture of a rose on it. It measures 12 in. x 13 in. The only thing I knew that the recipient liked were the colors blue and purple. It was then filled with all kinds of art goodies, chocolate and a handmade bracelet. Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day :)

The winner of my OWOH giveaway is: TIFF! I will be e-mailing you shortly to let you know you've won and to get your mailing info. Congrats and thanks to all of you for playing! :)

I don't think I've ever complained on my blog before, but I just can't stand this problem anymore and I want to know what you do if this is happening to you also. Are you around someone a lot who is ALWAYS texting, using their iPhone, Blackberry, etc.? I am and it is driving me CRAZY!!! Am I the only one with this dilemma? I would LOVE to hear from others with this same problem! Thanks and sorry to complain :)

After a leisurely walk to get ice cream with my family in some gorgeous Southern California sunny weather (in the 70's!), I was able to make some jewelry today! These pieces look so much better in person! Sometimes I sit down with my beads with the best intentions of making a piece or two and I just can't get a combination that I like. That did not happen today though! It all just 'clicked'! I know that most of you can definitely relate to what I'm talking about :) BTW, these pieces are not meant to match by any means. They are two completely different combinations of beads.

Believe it or not, I am finally posting some new art! Now that things are back to their normal groove here after the holidays, I have a little bit of art time :) These are Zetti Hanging ATCs that I made for a swap. I LOVE hearts and red, so I LOVE Valentine's Day!
