My new t-shirt....

I found a wonderful new t-shirt from my thrift tsore and I thought it was so cute I wanted to take a picture of it.It was $5.99 so really cheap and brand new with tags still on.I just adore it.

What's coming up craftwise....

I have been meaning for the past year or 2 to get started on an altered book or journal.Secretly I am terrified of the thought cause it seems like it would take forever to accomplish.I really don't know the first thing about how to start creating one so if anyone has any easy ideas I'm all ears.So hopefully if all goes well I will begin the long process very soon and post as I go.I'm sure it won't be easy and may take awhile to completion but I think I need to challenge myself more than I usually do.Another project for sometime this year is a 4 foot jewerly box however this is hard to describe so if I ever get it done it would be easier to post a picture.So many goals and so little time.Ah!The world spins way too fast for me.LOL

Some swaps I recieved today....

Above: Recieved my items today for Delights of Spring Matchbox/Mini ATC swap I hosted on Swapbot.She sent alot of little goodies but I love the little matchbox and the ATC's are very colorful and creative..Sent by Officeweed on Swapbot.
Above:I recieved my Atc for the Kings' Vineyard Atc swap by MoominBrooke on Swapbot.Again very creative when it comes to Atc's.I really enjoyed it.

I finally completed it!

I had been working on a swap for someone and I am so glad that tonight I finished it.I just have been so busy with other things that I kinda put it off but tonight I got down to serious business and finished these ATC's.They are the colors of the rainbow and it's hard to part with them because I think some of them turned out quite nice however I am more than happy to send them off for someone else to enjoy and I'm sure she will.

I just couldn't stop.......

A jewelry making kind of Sunday

I have been really craving the time to make jewelry of some kind and so finally today I got down to it and made some flower button rings.I also am in the process of making some vintage jewelry.So this necklace you see is my first piece.I'd like to see what other interesting pieces I can come up with this afternoon.I'm so glad it's Sunday and I'm craftmindedly inspired.Is that even proper english?Oh well, gotta get back to it now.
