I got three bookmarks i nthe mail this week! I feel a wee bit spoiled Smiley

Onyxnox made me TWO bookmarks! the ribbons with flower and teh woodburned cullen crest (one of her first woodburned images! pretty spiffy, eh?). Homerof2 maybe the very sweet and sparkly crochet butterfly which is currently living in my copy of the Time Traveller's wife as I read it for the 4th time and blupaisan made the very sweet kitchen themes bookmark which i am going to laminate so i can keep it in my cookbooks without fear of spatters Smiley

hi guys. I am back from my week of horriblness. I am now first aid and CPR C certifted, WHMIS trained, have upgraded my driver's licence and am on my way towards a firearms aquisition and posession license. It's a weird collection of things one needs to take museum studies, eh?

Anyway, just a reminder that send out date is tomorrow! If you are going to be sending late for any reason, today is the day to let me and your partner know to avoid any poor feedback comments.

Yikes you scared me for a second. I'm always freaking out and thinking it's the 8th because I can never get used to dates being written that way. At least 16 isn't a month!
I've confused more than one person with that. I am canadian so I use the British standard which is opposite of the american. It's one of the things that makes us quirky :p

So on with the swap update!
Sendouts are in 9 days. It's creepying up on us! eek!
The member status list on the gallery page has been updated and feedback has been given to partners who have both sent and recieved. If your status does not refect the list, let me know so I can fix it Smiley

Just FYI, I may be alittle MIA until next weekend. I'm getting ready to move out of my moms place in a few weeks for grad school (a little daunting!) and I'm working on updating/getting some qualifications and licenses I need before September most of which require classes this week. so I get to work, go to class and buy 18753 rather odd things (like a crockpot, white cotton gloves and steel toe boots). I can read and respond to PMs on my phone, but I'll be pretty limited in my abilty to post. Fear not! I will back by next Sunday at the latest Smiley

You have one talented daughter! I like the purple ones a lot and the wire wraps on the red ones look very polished. She should be very proud.
29  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / 31 flavours? How about 31 earrings! One for everyday of the month (IMAGE OBESE!) on: July 30, 2010 02:19:20 PM
So I've been a little stressed lately. I haven't had a day off to recharge my mental batteries in more than 3 weeks, I'm getting ready to move away for post-grad in a massively stressful program and my grampa passed away last month. So to help cope, I got it stuck in my head to make a pair of earrings for every day of the month. So during my precious afternoon off last week I went to some bead stores (I love living in Toronto, 6 bead stores within 3 blocks) to get some supplies and sent to work. It took 4 days, more than 100 head pins and 62 earring wires but I did it. I made 31 one pairs of earrings. I've been waiting for some decent light to get pictures.

1 to 3: Teal faux pearl drops, volano quartz with various semi-precious beads (jasper, quartz, goldstone, jade), pink and yellow crystals in brass pendants

4 to 6: dyed quartz drops, pink and green howlite with turquois and flower, blue pink and green glass drops, dyed quartz and swarovski crystal drops

7 to 9: brushed pwerter charms on loop, white bows, snowflake charms

10 to 12: swarovski on 18k gold plated chain, fuzzy hearts with love charm, studio 54 inspired gold circles

13 to 15: heart shaped locks with keys (one of my faves!), eiffel tower with volcano quartz, apple charms

16 to 18: dyed quartz drops, copper chandielers with crystal, brass bird charms (another fave)

19 to 21: handmade yellow glass with silver and gold chain, chandilers with blue crystals, desert jasper on brass

22 to24: blue glass with feather charms, red foiled beads with love charm, faux pearl drop with copper caps

25 to 26: blue shells and jade with key charm, volcano quartz with brass

27 to 29: brushed silver leaf motif pendants, knitting charms with swarovski crystals, brass butterfly charms

30 to 31: My total fave, black bows with faux turquois and heart shaped lock charm, faux pearl with silver cap

Here is the whole lot. It really is a smack load of earrings. But now I have it stuck in my head to make 52, one for every week of the ear. How awesome would that be? Holiday earrings! Seasonal themes!

I got my hat from Mamatomany days ago, however life and prevented me from getting a decent photo (I haven't had a day off in 3 weeks and I look like it. It's tres charming.) I manged to get a somewhat decent picture last night, but sadly I can't capture the nuiances of this hat on camera.

It's cloche style, one of my faves, and has subtle little eyelets all over. They yarn is lovely and sheepy (not too soft, so it actually stays on my baby smooth hair and still smells like lanolin, but not a barn.) It feels like its going to be the perfect fall hat; it's not to warm and won't give me hat hair!
