I've been working on a lot of little projects lately that I thought I'd share...

I love the idea of unconventional quilling - and what is more of a surprise than mixing fire and paper?  I designed these candle holders and turned them into a free tutorial if anyone wants to give them a try Smiley

This is a simple pair of earrings that I plan on turning into a tutorial but haven't yet.  I love how the colors came out.

And lastly I designed these earrings as a magazine submission - but sadly they were rejected Sad  I am still pretty bummed out about it, but at least I get to wear them now.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks!  Yes, I always use stainless steel.  Everything else makes people's ears itch Smiley

The candle holders are awesome! And since we've recently moved house I've been looking for decorative items to make, to jazz the place up a bit, and the candle holders will be a great addition! Sorry about the rejected magazine submission but those earrings are FAB - very Art Deco - and I would wear them in a heartbeat!

The little boxes are so cute and clever. All the others are beautiful as usual. Smiley

I can't believe that your flower earrings were rejected by the magazine but I'll bet they won't be by your fellow crafters here.  They're fab, and so are the candle boxes. Your work is amazing to me.

Your little boxes are adorable and practical.  And your flower earrings are top-notch.

I can't believe they would reject those earrings!  They're so great!

The thing about believing that you can do anything is that you actually do things!
