A Few Little Projects

I haven't had as much time as usual lately for crafting, but I thought I'd share a few little projects with you.

I finally made some earrings with a some of the gorgeous stone beads I found in South Dakota this spring:


ATCs for Mimi's swap - can't wait to see everyone else's!



Hmm - my very first attempts at acrylic painting in a local class - the one on the left was the first one I've ever done; the one on the right was the second (and was black and white, now glazed with color):




Putting together invitations for a friend's India-themed engagement party to be held during my upcoming trip to SoDak (can't wait!):



Not the greatest picture, but this is a 'thank you' necklace of ceramic beads and bronzey fresh water pearls for my pen friend Cindy, who sent me a very generous package of lovely stationery this summer:
What are you working on?

I wish I was creative, but the only thing I can do these days is plain knitting :-(

Your ATCs are so lovely, I think you'll be happy - there's one left to come in and then they will be on the way.

I've been making cards.

I've really enjoyed the necklace Kristina! I wore it to church with a green outfit one week then wore it again with a purple top earlier this week. It looked great with both. Thank you again. I love it.

love your pear paintings. one my favorite paintings that i did is of pears. there is just something so beautiful about the shape. for a first painting this is fantastic. it inspires me to get painting again.
