I am in Love !!

Yup , I am in love !!!  With a new favorite site that is ! Pinterest , I am a visual person  , so it is easy for me to get lost and waste... I mean ...use my time wisely, checking out all of the wonderful photos  !  If you have not discovered it yet , you need to check it out , it is a social catalog where you can find all kinds of inspiration and beautiful things, helping you organize, classify and share anything you find on the internet. You can click on the logo on the right  and follow me ( the large red P )  !!
I have also been crazy busy still making things! I made up some altered dominoes to use in some pendants and magnets, also have small tiny one's  ( they were hiding in another place ) ! I love my little wooden display holder , holds them perfectly !

A good friend of mine went to an auction sale that I was unable to attend & she was so kind to purchase several wonderful finds for me ( she knows what I love ) ! The little wooden display was one purchase and the brass letters . You should take the time to  check out her Etsy shop , FoundOnThe Prairie  great vintage treasures.We sometimes love the same things so it's best were not at a sale together !! Just kidding Melissa !  These are the brass letters that were used for printing , I will use them for jewelry !
Also been working on some book markers , using vintage velvet ribbon and lace then adding vintage beads & treasures. Makes for an elegant book marker !!
Made two entries for a challenge on our Yahoo group for Altered Pages , was anything metal!! One is an ATC with a "metal" key that I made from the "metal" tape from hardware stores, just ran it through my cuttlebuf with a Tim Holtz die.   Also an altered tin, was from a tin I had in my "pile" for a long time.

                           I hand dyed the lace and added handmade flowers that are grunged up  !!
Have a wonderful week & I hope you enjoy the little things !!

What's Been On My Table This past Week !

I have been trying to keep going in the creating things and getting projects done !  I have been doing a lot of re-purposing of old books , folding page's , ect to create unique designs . The collage above was created using various papers and image from Altered Pages , as well as the vintage look photo frame !  Take some time to go check out there site for some wonderful products to create with ! You will not be disappointed and Jean provides great service too !
I also have a lot of treasures to re-purpose for my Etsy shop SecondTreasures this morning I listed these great vintage ornate wall plaques !
I love the color and how they turned out !
 Hope you are all enjoying your summer ! Have a blessed & creative day !

Art Saves and Ice Resin !

What a title !!!  Hope it does not cause confusion !! I have been busy creating with Ice Resin , I really like working with it , comes out so clear love the look ! Have been working still on a lot of jewelry the past week .
Some of the pieces I have been making !
I also wanted to share with you a book I purchased ! Art Saves by Jenny Doh, an amazing book and have enjoyed it so much ! Click on this link  to go to her site . What I also loved is that  a portion of the book price goes to a wonderful project , you can read all about it on the link !
I have to say for myself that being able to create has many times helped me through so many hard and rough times in my life , like a healing therapy for me . The past week has been an enormous struggle for me , but I will get through it & thankful I can go to my studio and listen to some up- lifting music and create away & allow God to speak to me in my thoughts !
Hope your having a wonderful weekend !
