I LOVE Being Creative!

Hello everyone!

Quick post today to let you know how I've been coming along with my crafts. Everyone loves to do crafts... there's just something so fulfilling about working hard on something, and then having it turn out to be something you're proud of. :) Yay for all of us who are creative!

So, I was looking through my craft supplies (here is a pic of just SOME embellishments I have...)

and I came across a piece that I'd completed a while back that I had deactivated from Etsy. Well, I took a good look at it, and I really still love the way it came out, and chances are more than likely that if I like it so much, others will, too. So I relisted it tonight! Here it is, my

Steampunk Butterflies Repurposed Jewelry for Your Hair

I remember making that piece was a lot of fun. Steampunk to me is a very interesting and intriguing style that keeps growing. I also like SOME Victorian... lacey patterns, but not huge heads... sometimes, it goes too far. LOL.

I work with a 98 year old woman (God bless her!) who lives in a retirement community. Every one who lives there has little shelves for decorative purposes outside of their respective apartment doors, and a lot of people put out candy in little bowls for tomorrow. The lady and I went around to these apartments and took a little candy. She asked me if it was stealing. I said of course not... they put it out for us to take. It's not for "kids", as no kids are allowed to live there. She is so precious and cute, the woman... she's an angel :) Anyway, I'm not allowed to post a pic of her, obviously, but I can of the candy!

And last, but certainly not least... I'm working on more magnets! I'm really liking the way these ones are coming along... any criticisms? They're always helpful!

And please don't forget about my wonderful giveaway!!! You still have time to
enter :)
