For now I will post a few pictures of the space I work in! Lol! I get into a zone and start creating and then I have so many things happening that I end up working on the floor! I honestly try to keep things tidy, but it is beyond me obviously, because here I am again! lol
Now you would think that perhaps I would try to separate the two, keep them in different rooms or at least different parts of the room, but this is a small room, very small. It is also the only one I have at my disposal! There are 8 of us that live in this house. Tight quarters indeed! We make do however and are quite happy most of the time :)
So far you can see that I have stuff everywhere! What can I say! I am working on organizing, but I always seem to get sidetracked! lol. I am sure that those of you who have kids and a household to take care of know exactly what I am talking about!
This shelf right here is mostly Scrapbooking. My albums, some quite thick and others at their humble beginnings. Stamps practically falling off the shelves! I imagine someday it will look neat and tidy, but that day is not today!
The good news is that I am in the process of cleaning right now and I hope to have photos of what this room can look like soon :)
I imagine some of you are recognizing some of the supplies I have on my table ;) You just never know what you are going to find in this room ;)
Chaos and more chaos! I need a better system! Obviously I still manage to get things done, but who knows how I am accomplishing this, it is no small feat let me tell you!
I will take photos after I am pretty much done my overhaul, this could take a few more days since I can only take a few minutes here and there to get it to where I can work again. I am also trying to get my beads better organized so I can make better use of my time, but I am almost happy with the way they are right now. I just need some labels and destashing.
I am looking forward to being done and being able to show you more. Perhaps some of your feedback will be helpful? Not much room to take good photos, but I guess we will see what happens when there is nothing left on the floor! lol.
Thanks for stopping by!

Menagerie Studio!! I will have many more pieces to show you made with her fun Charms.
On the right is a necklace made with one of my French Eiffel Tower Pendants! I loved the colour variation in the background of the pendant and added beads at the top that would bring out those wonderful colours. Filigree wrapping is now THE thing everyone wants to do with my pendants, so most of them are now coming un-drilled or custom drilled to offer more choices or variety. Thanks Jess for your wonderful inspiration ;)
Keep Coming Back For More Updates!!!

|New "faux" seaglass beads in my shop!!|
Vintaj filigree. This is something I had not really though of until I sent some pieces to Jess Italia Lincoln at Vintaj and she created some amazing pieces! I had asked her if she wanted them drilled or left alone to wrap and as I was writing it I thought, what a great idea! Of course I did not get to try it until after she had done her pieces, but they sure helped bring out the best in my final designs!

Bead Unique and hope to have a fighting chance of winning :) I really love what I made, this is only my second Steampunk piece ever, so I guess we will see! The Boro glass beads are from my friend Amanda of Seashore Glass, I love her beads! I have to say, I am starting to have quite the stash of Lampwork from the many wonderful artists I have found, and Boro is my new obsession!! So much movement in the glass, it is so very addictive!!
I feel lucky to be here among you on this amazing adventure!! For my Birthday, my simple wish would be to have all of you go pick out your favorite piece in my shop and put it in your cart. Lol!! Simple really :) Then maybe I can get to 200 sales!! I will be away for the weekend, but back first thing Monday!!
See you then!!

These are the first two that I have created without drilling into the wood. The use of filigree really adds so much to the tiles and pendants, I may have to make many, many more of these.
pendants that have just been completed. I have a couple in the shop and some that I just finished yesterday that will start appearing in the shop in the next couple of days.
I will also be photographing my new "kits" that I have been putting together over the last couple of months and I will start listing those as well. There could be a small delay there because of the amount of time these are taking to assemble, but worry not, they shall come!!
I hope to list it in my shop before the weekend. Do feel free to reserve any of these pieces! Leave me a note on the post and I will list it with your name on it :)
Let me know what you think of this new "style" if you will, I would truly love to get your input!
Thanks for visiting!!
