Getting Some Things Done!

Finally! I feel like I have gotten a few things done the past couple days. First- I want to wish my big sis a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Sunday was her '36' B-day and the kids and I went home to Akron to visit and had an awesome cookout with the family! It was a a lot of fun & Shel, I hope you had a wonderful day!

Then, my mom and brother came home with us, and after the kids went to bed, my mom helped me finish up my swap pendants for Heather's Jewels of the Sea swap. I love how they turned out! Love those colors so much. Happy to get those in the mail, finally!! Here are the ATC's I made to put the pendants on:

Here are the finished pendants. I didn't add too much more to them- mainly just the pearls.
And here is the final piece:

Renee thought I should try to make an octopus, like my mermaids and seahorses and my mom and I whipped this up last night, too. I LOVE it!! I am going to send this one to Heather for her hostess gift for the pendant swap, I hope she likes it!

I can't wait to make some more of these, hopefully tomorrow! They are so sparkly and pretty in the light. And they are pretty good size, too! About 9"x9", so lots of light shines through.

Lastly, at our craft group gathering this past weekend, we made framed collage art. I have been feeling pretty, let's say...challenged- as an 'artist' lately. Haven't had much time to do anything creative, but I haven't really felt like it, either. So, I made this collage. Very simple. Maybe it was just what I needed to get my creative juices flowing.

Well, that's all for now, it's time for bed! Have a great Wednesday!! ~Lisa
