Oooo Shiny

I've yet to meet a girl that hasn't at one point said "oooo shiny". Something about shiny just makes a girl's head swivel (heck a lot of guys too). I get distracted by shiny every day! That might be why I love swarovski crystals. The way the light catches these babies is out of this world. Brides, movie stars, and my sister (yours too probably) have all worn these proudly. I came across this history of swarovski crystals at Fire Mountain Gems and thought it was a really interesting piece (I didn't know Josephine Baker wore them). Check it out

Wanna Scoop?

If you know me (or have read some of my recipes) I LOVE FOOD! And ice cream has been a special treat that my mom has always had a soft spot for. I've made my own rock salt ice cream at my great aunt's camp, eatten soft serve all over the north east, and am brought to my knees by Ben and Jerry's. Intro the ice cream earrings- Fat free :)

Do you have a sweet tooth?

I Love Lucite

Lucite is a weakness for me. My heart skips a beat when I see vintage lucite anything. So, when I saw these modern lucite mums I had to have some. Thus far they have become bobby pins and post earrings but I'm thinking of combining them with my glass pendants too. I have a new batch of them on the way to me and I can't wait to get my hands on them. Here are my favorite color gracing some silver plated bobby pins!

What do you think?

Latest Stitch

I'm currently being sidelined from most crafting- possible carpal tunnel in my right hand. But here is the latest project I completed before the dr's visit.

The pattern is Sexy Librarian from Sublime Stitching. I'm excited at how quickly I'm picking up embroidery.

Any other carpal tunnel victim's out there? How are you coping and continuing to craft?
