Phat Purple Chain


It's been a Long TIme... I have been working on quite a few things. But, there is not enough time in the day. I truly don't realize how those mothers, with multiply kids and outside jobs, still find time to craft and blog. Phew, that's alot. Anyway, here are a few things that I have been working on. Above is my chain link necklace. I love it. I'm not a big fan of purple, but that was my test yarn color and it came out so beautiful. You probably can't tell to much in the picture, but the yarn has a bit of a silver shimmer to it. Below are some earrings that I made for a friend. There were a ton more, but these are the ones that I photographed at the last minute.


Much love blog family, I need to get better with dividing my time between life, crafting, blogging,reading, family and working.

P.S. I changed my blog layout and added a banner to the top and the bottom of the page. If you click the bottom banner it takes you to my Etsy Shop. Let me know what you think.

In other news: Today, I mourn on my birthday, because of the lost of someone that everybody in the world adored for whatever reason. I am still in shock right now over the sudden passing of a legendary musical genius, MICHAEL JACKSON. I am also disgusted at some other the media outlets that are focusing on all the negativity and not the tons of musical contributions that he shared with the world. Just my opinion, but I feel that they focused on these negative issues (true are not) during the remainder of his life. It's so many of his songs and dances that bring back a flood of energized memories, for me and others. So, in death maybe he should be alloted some empathy for his musical genius. Anyway, may he get peace in the here after and gain the love and acceptance that he so obviously longed for.

I think the earrings are so cool...thread or yarn? I agree..Leave the Jackson family alone to grieve, but keep them in your prayers

Thanks Vikki, I used yarn for the earrings. I have made some with aunt lydia's brand thread, i posted them about a year ago. I love them both ways the thread makes them more delicate and not so chunky.
