So here's my submission for the challenge. I don't know if this is cheating or not, since I didn't make this charm necklace "just for the challenge", but the pieces were made using the techniques on Page 64 nonetheless :) . . .
Charm Necklace was made with Fragments, laser wood cut pieces, a few game pieces, other embellishments and some TH papers (of course!)
And guess what ELSE is going on this week? I will be teaching my very first workshop since before my surgeries the week of September 12th. Yep, I will be getting together with the Orange County Art Makers (OCAM) group this Friday morning. I'm still not able to drive, so my friend Linda Bucci is coming by to pick me up and take me to the venue, which happens to be really close to where I live. So you can only imagine my excitement of getting out and being around like-minded people for a few hours of art-making. Oh yes, color me excited!!
PS A few additional RAK's received last week . . . a note of news, tea and a tag from my friend Janice Golden
Janice created this prayer box necklace for me the night I had my first surgery. She said she made it from nervous energy. It is just beautiful! . . .
Here's a close up of the soldered beauty . . .
This candle (which is burning in my living room as I type!) was included in the package from Janice . . .
And the good news that Janice shared with me was that she got published for the first time! I am so proud of her for taking the plunge and submitting a piece of her work to Stampington for publication. You can see the piece to the right on the paper my prayer box is laying on below . . .
Received some cards from friends and family and a novel from my friend Dianne back in Chicago . . .
PS The Warrior Women Blog Hop begins tomorrow. What's THAT you ask? Be sure to stop by HERE tomorrow to read all about it! I can tell you this much . . . there's going to be a lot of fun going on!!
