Maybe My Word Should Be "PURGE"

i have a problem
i love magazines
and the inspiration they give

 problem is
when i find the inspiration
i should immediately rip that page out
and put it in my inspiration folder

as you can see
i have NOT done that
i have my work cut out for me this next week
many hours will be spent going through these

a lot of people are coming up with one word for the year
i think my word should be PURGE
that way it would save me A LOT of hours 
going through these

yes, i think my word is PURGE

i did however organize
ALL of my stampington magazines

now all hidden in their new
cornflower blue holders i found at staples

who says organization has to be boring

and now i am off to

Custom Jewelry

I just love vintage antique photos
they tell a story of a time way back when

so when I get the opportunity to create a piece using old photos
I can't wait to see the outcome of the jewelry piece

these two necklaces are some custom work
I just recently finished

here is a mother and daughter together

the complete necklace with a hand beaded chain

here is another piece using an antique photo of a bride and groom

I like to use beads that compliment the photo
in this case black, silver and grey were the colors that worked best

I love the way these two turned out
I hope the person that is going to receive these loves them too

if you have any personal photos that you would like put into a custom piece
email me or comment on this post and I will contact you back

have a great week!
