Whoo Hoo

My husband and I bought a new car yesterday! It's a 2008 Mustang GT! I freaking love it! The inside has red leather, it looks crazy fancy.

We've only had it for one day and it has already been washed twice and had window tint added. I predict 4 washes by this time next week!

Wooden beads and bangles

I really like the way wooden beads look, this is one of my favorite wooden pieces. Sometimes I like a more natural look so I don't use any metal, to close this I use a bead and a loop.

These are some bangles that I made to go with the necklace. I get a lot of compliments on these and my neighbor actually bought three of them for her daughters 19th birthday. The beads I used in the necklace were too small to put on the bracelet so I used the same string to tie them together.

I am working out balancing beading and scrapping. Today I made a pretty pink necklace that should look great with some of my "dress up" clothes. For some reason I can never settle on a pink necklace that I like. It seems like I have made tons of pink necklaces but I always end up changing it. Hopefully this one will look right when I finally get to wear it.

This is the bracelet I made to go with it. I really like charm bracelets right now. This one is kind of neat because the bracelet links are hearts. Super girlie!

Feeling creative today

My husband is working this weekend so I am forced to find things to keep me busy. Today I decided to scrapbook, something I used to really enjoy but haven't done lately. I am blessed to be friends with the world's greatest scrapbooker, she inspires me daily. In fact, this mini album I did today came from her. It felt great to get the creative juices flowing again. Now I'm going to have to figure out how to balance beading and scrapping!

The pictures I used were from a weekend trip we took with some friends to a beach in North FL. It was fabulous. It was kinda windy so we couldn't go in the water but we made up for it in other ways. We were able to relax and have some great conversations. There is nothing better than good friends, good food, good drinks and a beautiful beach.

Shopping for wedding stuff

Today I went to my sisters and we went in search of wedding stuff. She is getting married in November and has asked me to be her MOH. I am very excited! I've never been a MOH before and I have all kinds of grand plans. We bought some stuff from Michaels and IKEA to make center pieces. Her colors are Mocha, Espresso and Ivory, so we used coffee beans and clear rock things to fill in some vases. It looks beautiful with the tea candles lit.

Not my favorite but I sure do wear it a lot.


Charm bracelet

This is a piece I made a few months ago and wear all the time. It's a great FL piece because these are all colors that are seen a lot down here. The necklace hangs pretty low and looks great with solid tanks. I really like the ring but I haven't actually worn it yet, my Hubby makes fun of it.

My two little Angels. We have had the big one for seven years and the puppy for 2 years. They are sooo bad. The puppy eats everything! One day I looked out and saw her climbing an orange tree and she pulled out a huge branch and then proceded to eat it. Never a dull moment.
