I've Been Busy in My Etsy Shop!

I finally photographed and listed the newest creations in my Etsy shop!  While I love the creating, I don't necessarily love the photo-ing! (is that even a word?)

The above four are all metal washer pendants, one of my favorite items to make.

The two antique book pendants are both done in antique copper pendant trays, which I also love!

Lastly, mini envelopes...probably by all-time favorite!

Thank goodness for the weekend, that's all I can say!

I've done it again...I've fallen off from posting.  No reason other than I've been in a slump, probably a Winter heading into Spring slump.

Even my crafting has slowed down!  I did, however, get into my cottage twice this week!  It would have been more often except my back kicked out on Good Friday and I wasn't out of the tough pain until Wednesday or Thursday.  By then my plans for ship-lapping one bedroom were on hold til summer, as well as my plans for crafting up a storm.

I actually think it was God's way of telling me to quiet down, to stop mentally running on overdrive.  So I did...I've read four books so far, and that's okay.

I was able to spend all day out in my cottage today though; here are a few of the things I got done.

I made the roses a few years ago and decided to give them a try...I'm still on the fence about adding/not adding flowers, but for now, the roses aren't permanent.  

Here are a few pendants that I made earlier this month and that are now listed in my Etsy shop.
