Thing-A-Day #16 – Magnetic Memo Board

Still having problems with my computer, which means another late post – hopefully I can figure it out this weekend. Last night I put the finishing touches on a memo board that I painted a couple of months back. This

Thing-A-Day #15 – Shrinky Dink Owl Ring

My home computer continues to sabotage my TAD posts, so here’s another tardy post. I decided to use the Shrinky Dink plastic to create a ring. It’s a work in progress. Here is the ring after shrinking and bending: More

Thing-A-Day #13 & 14

Sorry for the tardy post. WordPress wasn’t a big fan of me trying to post pictures last night – I went the simple route for Thing 13, and made these cabachon bobby pins. For Thing #14 – How many beads

Thing-A-Day #12 – Glass Earrings

Quick post tonight, as there isn’t much to be said about these. Just paper, glass and diamond glaze – per usual. But this time miniature earring size. It’s my first time to use 1/2 inch tiles, and I think they

It wasn’t my intention to make earrings tonight, but sometimes crafting takes you along it’s own path. Read more here.

Thing-A-Day #10 – They’re Multiplying

I made a couple more domino pendants today. I’m loving how they are turning out. Now I just need to figure out if I can drill through them or just need to put a bail on the back. More information

Thing-A-Day #9 – Paper Beads

Today was the perfect day for a fairly mindless activity, and rolling paper beads fit the bill. I actually rolled very few, but cut and prepared hundreds, so they’ll be ready next time I’m watching TV. One of the neat

Thing-A-Day #8 – Painted Pendant

I decided to try to paint on the dominoes for a different look from the other kind of jewelry we’ve been making. I thought that a simple design might be fun so painted an umbrella and heart on one. Not

Thing-A-Day #7 – Domino Necklaces

Dominoes! Apparently I am trying to make jewelry out of everything I can think of. The other day while on a toy pilgrimage for Legos (I’m a child), I found this small antique looking set of dominoes. The dominoes are

Thing-A-Day #6 – Necklace

One more unfinished project crossed off the list. Hooray! I made this washer necklace with my favorite tree paper last month, but am not quite sure what I was thinking when buying a washer with such a small center. It

Thing-A-Day #5 – Works in Progress

All my projects were in various states of drying last night, and didn’t make for good photographs, so I opted to wait until today to post. I finished the barrettes from the previous day by adding diamond glaze to them.

Thing-A-Day #4 – Barrettes

A day full of creation and inspiration for future projects. A friend and I went to a small town nearby to do some antiquing. I looked like it would be a day without purchases, but then I left the final

Thing-A-Day #3 – Painting and Legos

Well, not much went right today – so I don’t have anything too exciting for you to look at today. I painted a board that will hopefully be an awesome product by the end of the weekend, so stay tuned

Thing-A-Day #2 – Glass Necklaces

Today I finished 5 necklaces. Prior to today I created the tiles out of paper, glass and diamond glaze and today I glued on bails and selected necklaces to go with them. I also created this bag while flying last

Good evening folks, Thrilled to be back here for another Thing-A-Day. Cannot wait to see everything you all create. My project for today was to seal some already made paper beads and then string them to make a necklace. More
