A Giveaway!

I have been busy lately making all kinds of things, including jewelry. It relaxes me, but it also makes more room for new beads in my bead boxes, LOL! In my next post I will show you new earrings and bracelets made for moi, but now I want to share with you a little summer set that I made for this giveaway.

A stretchy bracelet made with shell beads

And a pair of matching earrings (the left one looks more yellow than it actually is, don’t know why)

And that is not all! I am also giving this journal I made some time ago. Your support means a lot to me, so I would like to send you my love with this journal.

Hello everyone and Happy Holidays! I hope you are having a great time!

I wanted to share with you some of the things I made well, just for fun. 🙂 I altered some puzzle pieces and made earrings out of them, and also used my handmade beads to make jewelry. So without too much talking, here they are! 🙂

Next time I’ll show you my handwovens.  (If I don’t forget to photograph them that is.)  🙂

Books books books!

I’ve had a wonderful week! And the reason for that was – inspiration! A ton of it! I was so in the bookmaking zone, that everything else seemed irrelevant. And everything was so easy to do! Well, my hands and fingers hurt, and my butt feels numb from all that sitting, but who cares! I have so many gorgeous little books to look at, to sell, to give, to own! I can’t explain how good I feel! But I have a feeling you kinda noticed by now, and I promise, I am not drunk or on drugs, it’s just “bookmaking high” thing,LOL!

Anyway, the only thing that bothers me are the photos, which for some reason didn’t turn out quite right, no matter how many times I photographed, or if it was it inside or outside, they just are not good enough. But, I can’t help it now, so here are some of the photos, and yes, there are a couple of pendants that are not books, but I just felt like trying some new things. 🙂

Those were the necklaces, and here are some tiny books made into earrings:

Then some slightly bigger books:

And another great thing this week was that I found two bags full of books by the entrance of my building, and they are all hard cover, so now I have fourteen books to play with! Some are quite large, about 30cm nigh, and I can see them becoming great art journals. Apparently, someone didn’t want them anymore, and to be honest, who would want a book about installing heating in commercial buildings! 🙂 But they are all in excellent condition! More fun for me! Yay! 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! 🙂
