..yes, I've been playing with dominoes..not playing dominoes...but with...
(domino looks like it's spelled correctly...but dominoes looks weird, doesn't it??)..oh well.
I'm trying to make some simple necklaces and mind you - these are just the firsts..and the firsts are always crummy - like the first pancake, the first cookie off the sheet, first oil painting..first job..... you get it..the first anything.. (crummy firsts do not count in children..just to be clear..)
I am decoupaging some and have stamped some - but I think I like the decoupage better. I found these neat clasp-cord-holder-oner-thingys (don't know what they're called) but they make for some pretty easy necklace holders..
So, you just find some good images - these were on vellum..and decoupage - viola!
This one was stamped..
I'm not crazy about the stamped ones yet..I need to be more colorful and the right-hand side is dubbed up a little..
But I do like making them and am getting to like wearing necklaces since Rachael has made me such beautiful ones..I could never compete with her's - she uses many different types of beads and jewels and they are amazing..but my eyes won't let me do that small of work anymore.
I will find some more velvet ribbon to go around the edges and maybe some sort of dangly-thingy for the bottom - but they are fast & fun..
Braxton got his in-between-clipping from Mr. B tonight - after their walk in the rain. Lulu just sat and watched this time. She was worried the whole time he was on the table. Poor baby. She would have been such a good mother..
Another Monday is fast approaching - a new chance to have a great week.
Don't mess this one up - OK?
