Easter seems to be sneaking up on me this year! I don't really know if time is going faster or if I am going slower! For some reason I seem to really struggle with Easter and spring things. I love to paint fall and Christmas, those come easy to me. But I do love these little Easter eggs! I finished up a few sets (of 3) and took some to the antique shop and I am offering some here too! For the shop I had to come up with a way to package them up for easier selling....so I put them in a little "nest" of brown scrunched paper and put them in a cello bag...the perfect little easter treat! That is also how they will come to you if you purchase them on here.
We had a jewelry making weekend too. I am so addicted to making jewelry! Me, my sisters, my Aunt and Mom got together and did copper etched charms. These are the ones I made! I am working on the chains....making all hand wrapped links for these, then I will be offering them for sale on here. I did take one to the shop so far, but more are coming! The ones on the bottom row and the outside of the middle row are the same as the ones I first practiced on. I really liked those so I made extras. The one in picture with the chain I made for Mom, she doesn't like to "make" she just likes us to make for her! The picture really doesn't do these justice, they are awesome!
This coming weekend we are packing up for St. Louis, heading to a bead show. I can't wait! It is a dual purpose trip...we are also heading to Erica's college, The St. Louis College of Pharmacy. Have a meeting with the financial people and we are also taking a tour. I am excited about that too, it should be alot of fun! I do have my moments of panic when I suddenly realize that my baby is going to college though!!! I just keep pushing it out of my mind for now though. We are splurging for the whole weekend away and plan to enjoy some relaxation at the motel and some shopping....prom is coming you know!
