Polka Dot Earrings | We’re All Ears

It feels like it's been ages since I made earrings! And then, Erin announced her theme for the We're All Ears challenge of September, and it looked just too fun to not give a shot. The theme? Dotty.

Stormy Earrings | We’re All Ears

For this month's We're All Ears challenge, Erin chose Storms as the theme. Storms, being a force of nature, are hard not to get inspired by. 🙂 My polymer clay earrings are inspired by the torrential rain during a storm, and the gentle ripples from stray post-storm raindrops hitting a puddle. As usual, the design… Continue reading Stormy Earrings | We’re All Ears

It's only that March got a bit lighter on the crafty side (because life!) and I just couldn't work on any challenges. Not to fret, we've both managed to finish our respective artistic projects… Continue reading Jewelry/Trinket Box | Inspiration Station

Storage Bag Tags

Even the tiniest amount of crafty time can result in a positive feeling. Case in point - A trio of tags that I made for keeping track of storage bags in our attic. These storage bags contain similar items but are only used occasionally, and the tags would be handy to figure out which one… Continue reading Storage Bag Tags

Spring’s Here Earrings

For this month's We're All Ears Challenge, Erin chose the theme Leaping Greenly, because, Spring! New beginnings, and hope, inspired me very much, but other things in life landed in a heap on me, and I just didn't get the time to turn any of my ideas into reality. This month, life continues to be… Continue reading Spring’s Here Earrings
