This is a pen I made for a friend's birthday. I had intended to make her a key ring to go with it, but didn't get the time with all the moving. I made the top a bit larger and then didn't put the clip on the top because I didn't think it looked right. Turns out, my friend hates them and usually works them off. So yay that she liked it! This is made out of acrylic and has browns, blues and a touch of purple in it! It was the perfect piece to make something for my friend since she loves these colors!
I didn't like this picture when I first took it because I thought it washed out the image. When I saw it larger (on something other than the camera screen) I thought it looked pretty cool. Enjoy!

Here are a couple of the last cards I made before I packed away all of my craft stuff. They aren't incredibly fancy, but I had to do them quickly! I have since given them both away. The second one has a crappy picture because I forgot to take a picture before I gave it to someone, so I did it quickly! But you get the idea. They were also made from the same piece of paper, so it's amusing to see them as different shades of purple! (And you get a nice close-up of my counters!)
These were modeled after a couple cards I made at one of Katie's SU parties. I thought I had a picture of it, but I can't seem to find one. I will try to remember to put that on my long list of to dos!
I know it has been a while, but I do have a couple other things to show you, but I will space them out! I made a pen before I packed all of my wood turning things away and I went to another SU party at Katie's, so I will get some pictures taken of those. And they won't be stellar quality since my photo box is also packed away!
Have a great long weekend! We're heading to Lake Superior to spend the weekend with friends and family on my hubby's dad's boat! I'll have to post a picture! It's massive! :)

We have officially decided to put our house on the market and see what happens. :) This means I am not going to be updating this very often since I have already packed all of my craft supplies! I have a couple cards to show you and I am going to a friend's house to make cards on Saturday, so I will have some to share after that...but I won't be making much of anything new in the line of crafting.
If you want to know more about it, you can feel free to visit my other blog since I will be updating that more.
I hope everyone keeps in touch...I'll need something to pass the time when I can't touch anything in my house! :)

I made this as an Anniversary card for my Mother-in-law and her hubby. Like us, they got married on her birthday. So she gets double the celebration. I think it turned out nicely. I like the way the three ribbons look. I will definitely do that again! I used sparkly silver paper in the card I am very pleased with they way it gives the card a little more dimension. And we all know how much I like sparkle! Enjoy!

This is a pen I made for my brother's girlfriend. She picked out the wood for the pen and then watched me turn it so it would be the thickness she wanted. She picked a great green. Sometimes colored wood doesn't always turn out the way you expect. At least not the way I expect it to look! I think it turned out lovely and I know my brother's girlfriend loved it! Enjoy!

Be proud! I made a card! It's been quite some time. I have a couple more things I need to make cards for so you might be seeing a couple more...shocking, I know!
This is a baby card I made for someone at work. We had a baby shower for her at work and I wanted to make a card to go with all the cute stuff my friend and I bought for her. I like how the three ribbons with different colors mixed in look. And I love how tiny the sentiment is. It just offsets everything else. Enjoy!

This is the pen I promised to show you that I made for my hubby. He picked out the style pen he wanted and I picked out the wood (which is the same as the key ring I posted recently). It is a rollerball pen which writes really well and it's much heavier than I thought it would be. You take the cap off this one and it can be put on the top. This is different than the other pens I have done which are twist pens. I think it turned out great, and most importantly, so does Chuck!

This is a key ring I made out of Buckeye Burl wood. This one I gave to my brother for his birthday. I thought it turned out perfectly to give to a guy. This is the same wood I used on a pen I made for Chuck. After looking through my site, I realize that I haven't shared a picture of that yet. So I will do that soon. Enjoy!

This is a key chain that I made for my step mom's birthday. She loved it! It was a little hard giving it away because I liked it so much, but since I made it, I figured I could always make another one! :) Enjoy!
