Ah.... finally my Creative Juices at Work!!!

Finally got a phone call for some work to do!!! No one can call me lazy; that's for sure! I am working on projects for Fall/Winter/Holiday 2010! Yep, that far in advance is how it rolls!
Can't divulge the details.... don't want competitors to find out. :o)

The economy has really slowed down the "creative biz". Companies watching their budgets decide they don't need samples of items.... they cut their costs that way. But for me (and quite a few creative buds of mine) that is not good news.

Next personal project is pending.... I'm thinking a sanity wheel that I can just spin to my heart's content and it will tell me whether to admit myself or keep plugging away in the chaotic world of parenthood. It would be like The Price Is Right wheel! spinning, spinning, spinning.

I went to a party recently at a local candle making shop. Had a fab time and realized... "hey, I can do this!". Like I need ONE more hobby!!! Arrrggggghhhhhh! Plus, it cost me over $100 for about 7 candles of varying size. I found some information about using your old candles (you know the ones that burned incorrectly and have all that wax domed around the tunnel down the center which burned?)to make new ones.... just would have to buy new wicks and probably a mold or two. I'll keep you posted how it goes. That may be a summer break project with my kids.

It's Prom Time Again

Yep, it's that time again.... when you go out to eat with your significant other and have to wait for a table behind a bunch of overdressed (and sometimes Over "Made Up") teens. HA! Ah, High School Prom, the night we all strive to be the Perfect Night (well, until we're older anyway. Then we aspire for our Wedding Night). Silky dresses, glitzy jewelry, flower corsages, a meal out (without your parents) and a night to dance away.....then parties until the wee hours.

Last week, I was in a crunch for making Prom Jewelry since I had not even seen the Prom Dress of note. It is purple this year by the way. Here's what I slaved over so my little girl (not so little any more) will look GLAM on the night of her Junior Prom.
This is a Scalloped Necklace with AB Swarovsky Crystals, along with the dangle earrings with AB Clear Crystals & Clear Crystals as well (various sizes from 3mm to 6mm). Tennis Bracelet to end the look at her wrist. :o)
Great fun and hope she gets to wear to for more than this one occasion!!!
