quiltie collage/beaded pendant

This is a two by two inch (not counting the trim)
quilted collage pendant with beading, made for
the Quality Crafters group tag swap.

project bag

Here is a project bag made for the Quality Crafters
"I Made This!" group swap. My swap buddy is a knitter,
and listed tote bags on her wish list, so a nice
project bag seemed appropriate (along with some yarn,
of course!)

Christmas Alphabetica

Here is (part of) my latest project--an alphabet
tag kit for Altered Pages. You know, I didn't
think I'd be able to come up with 26 different
Christmas words, but the collage pages were so
much fun to work with, it didn't take any time
at all to come up with a word list and matching

look at my new earrings!

Aren't they pretty? I didn't make these--
Roberta did, and she has some other lovely
things in her Dawanda shop, Time Creations.
It's definitely worth a visit.

bird atc

The Theme Thursday challenge for this week is to
make a bird atc. This has a serendipity style
background with a stamped bird image, highlighted
with some clear embossing. The "believe" is a rub
on, with some clear glaze pen over the text.
There is also a little jewel in the corner, but those
never scan well, do they? There are some green glaze
pen dots and distress ink, as well.

Evel Knievel riding a Dala horse.

That's one of what's on my dresser. Actually, it was just
Evel Knievel holding his little buddy, and the Dala horse
was somewhere around there, but the girl child likes to
rearrange things and see if we notice. Not sure where all
these things came from--probably spontaneously erupted from
all the other stuff. ("Stuff" sounds slightly kinder than
"junk.") Evel used to hang out by the computer,
but at some point he migrated to the bedroom. Not sure how
that happened, either. I'd get rid of him, but the little
pink alien is oddly intimidating.

Do other people have stuff hanging around that arrived from
parts unknown, or is it just me?

Son #2 just wagered I'd not find another pic anywhere of Evel
Knievel riding a Dala horse. We'll just have to see about that!

Just in case you're looking at this post, wondering to
yourself "Why am I looking at this post?", you may feel
better knowing that you are apparently in good company.
According to the stats, close to a bajillion people have
also stopped by to see Evel and the Dala . . .
