Bangle Bracelet Bling!

I’m so excited to be giving small workshops in my private studio overlooking the Colorado mountain range with a crackling fire, a glass of vino or coffee (depends on the time of day!) and some goodies to munch on while we explore my techniques and projects. Here’s the Bangle Bracelet Bling class I’m giving this Sunday 12:30-2pm. We start with Ellen Medlock's wonderful bracelet blanks (, add splashes of fabric, fiber and a bit of bling. Very fun...Come play!

Open Studio!

OK kids, the studio is all cleaned up, fire going, brisk outside, handmade chocolate fills the air and baubles and gift abound for your shopping pleasure! It’s my favorite holiday event, my Open Studio! This Friday and Saturday, Dec.4, 5 and Dec. 11 & 12 we’re having quite the soiree! Fridays 4-8 wine sipping and chocolate munching, Saturdays 10-4 lots of fun free demos given by myself and my BFF Karen, the CMQ (Chocolate Making Queen). There’ll be pottery, jewelry, silk scarves and my new “Mommy & Me” pet jewelry sets. Swing by for a cup of good cheer and chuckles!

My great peeps at Rings and Things sent me a goodie bag full of lovelies to play with…I just HAD to show you all as these cuties are sure to get you in the mood to make your own holiday gifts! Always inspired by the holiday season, I giggled over these cute holiday lamp work glass beads, the penguin was my fav ( with the snowmen ( a close second! I used a new gunmetal chain with some cool textured close links; added my red and green Batik Beauty fabric beads ( with a splash of CRYSTALLIZED™ – Swarovski Elements ( . Finished it up with a magnetic clasp and call it "Where's the Snow".
Now the hardest part is deciding which gal pal gets this treasure in her stocking!

Today I'm a DIVA!

I had the best time with Craft Diva™ Danielle Forsgren and The Duke of Crafts,
Rayme Royale today as I was the guest on their show on Diva Craft Lounge

We laughed a whole bunch and had a virtual party chating about crafting. Check it out!
