Work desk

This is where I stamp. Big fat mess. Jodi - see the nestabilities on the right? I copied your idea and I like it so much better this way. I have them hanging on shower curtain hooks.

Bead shoppin' we did go

These beads are from Shipwreck Beads. They have a huge assortment of beads. Everything in the store is also available on their website. Did I really need to buy this many beads to make stick pins for cards? Most definitely not. I couldn't resist though.

Stick Pins

I love these white beads. They remind me of vintage milk glass.

These square beads have flourishes on them and remind me some of the stamp sets and patterned paper that are so popular right now. Double click to see the details in this beautiful little bead.
Isn't this little glass heart bead precious ever more?

Cards with Jewelry

This is a Karen Lockhart stamp and the background is a CHF floral backgrounder. It's hard to see but under the aqua bead is a silver dragonfly.

Vintage Cupcakes - Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #18

I knew when I first saw this image I had to have it. It's from Impression-Obsession. I wanted a vintage feel so I paired it wil this Cosmo Cricket paper. Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages. I was able to add itsy bitsy specs of glitter to the sprinkles with a quickie glue pen. The crushed velvet ribbon is MM.
