I was so excited to get in the mail today an order I placed by a fellow blogger "Artsyville". Please go visit her blog, she is amazing. She sent me a extra little gift with it as well so I was even double happy. I truly love getting things in the mail. I miss getting things in the mail, with technology the way it is we tend to forget how special it is to get something in the mail. Don't get me wrong I love all my tech goodies (ok, I am really a geek when it comes to technology)..I would love to get an iPad (hint hint to hubby). But still miss the good ole days of waiting for the mail for something other then bills.
Today I made a necklace and if you have been following my blog you might of noticed one that looks alot like this one. I have received so many request for that one that I needed to make others like it. My only problem is somethings are one of a kind due to the materials. I start with a hand cut leather heart that I hand die, then I added a vintage crystal element to the middle with vintage beads and crystals dangling from the heart. I finished it off with a brush brass chain in different styles to give it that fun funky flare ( I believe that could be a new word for the dictionary..heehee). I love making Jewelry it is my first love of creating.
This 3 little pieces of art came in my package...sweet little jewels to use in my journaling.
This is the one I bought..I am a Yoga instructor, so this I really like.
This speak to me so much, and the artist gave this to me as a little extra too..so sweet, LOVE IT!!
Heart and Leather..
This picture does not do the beads justice for their colors. You can order this on my Etsy site.

Have a blessed night.
