Friday Freebie

Well, I'm not going to lie, this week sucked.  I have been sick all week with a cold from hell.  It started out as a small inconvenience, but by Wednesday, it was a full blow problem.  I can't breath, I can't sleep, I don't want food, I'm tired, and I have a terrible sinus headache.  So much fun.  So that means that I really didn't accomplish anything this week.  I did finish up the bead embroidery on my latest project, but I haven't started on the side because I just didn't feel like it.  I've sat on the couch covered in animals (they want to show me how much they love me???) and drug myself into the lab when needed.  I know, I should stay home when I'm sick, but it doesn't work that way when you have students.  And speaking of the lab, check out this article if you're interested in the work I do. 

So that's been my week, misserable.  But that's enough about that (no one wants to listen to me wallow any more), let's get to that freebie.


This is such a neat freebie.  This pack contains eight digital pages.

Don't have My Memories software, don't worry about it.  You can use my promo code, STMMMS11215, to get $10 off the My Memories Software and then an additional $10 off any purchase in the store. That's a pretty cool deal. The My Memories folks have some really great scrapbooking things. And even if you don't scrapbook, the software and extras are really awesome. I don't scrapbook, but I love the software to make interesting blog post pictures. I even used it to make some labels for my homemade granola bars, so J wouldn't have to guess flavors anymore. Just use STMMMS11215 to get the discounts.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and stay creative.

Wordless Wednesday - Missing this so much

Custom Orders

It's been a while since I've shared some of the custom orders I've been working on.  Well today is the day, aren't you lucky.

The first is a leather gauntlet that I made for one of my best clients.


This gauntlet is covered with almost 700 1/4 inch pyramid studs.  It's quite the statement piece.  He really loved it.

The second piece is a munch brighter piece.


This bright rainbow triangle was made for a new client that was looking for a simple necklace to go with a bracelet she already had.  I love this one.  It's so bright and fun.  Loved It!!!

I have a few other custom orders on the board, but they're not quite ready for photos.  If you would like to see the process, head on over to my instagram page.   I post lots of works in progress as well as pics from my everyday life.  And if you have an instagram page that you want me to check out, leave the info in the comments.

Weekend Wrap Up

Blah, I'm late with my weekend wrap up post again, but luckily, not as last as last week.  It was a productive weekend, but it was full of illnesses.  J got sick on Friday and just as he was starting to feel better, I got sick.  Yay.  And we're not sick with the same thing, so that means there is a chance that he will get sick again with whatever I have.  I've done so good this year.  I've only gotten sick once this winter, I thought I was in the clear.  I guess not.  So now I'm trying to take some product photos and do a little cleaning in the studio, but all I want is a nap, which I will probably take soon. 

Even with both of us being sick we did get some work done in my new studio.


We got the countertops installed.  YAY!  Now I have a work surface and I can decide where my shelves can go.  Okay, I lied a bit, we don't have them fully installed.  We have to install the corner supports, but at least they are in.  I'm so excited.


J also did some work on the surround for the water meter.  The last surround was huge and it had no access for the plumber or the city to get at the meter, so we made a better one.  This one is smaller and it is prettier.  It will be a nice little shelf for the printer when finished and if we have any other problems with the main water line (fingers crossed we won't), the plumber will have full access to the line. 

That was about all we did.  J did get some shelves cut for both his studio and mine.  But we haven't put them up yet.  I still have a huge mess in both my new and old studios, but we're making progress.  I did apply for a part time teaching position.  That's exciting.  I don't really know if I'm qualified, but I thought I would throw my hat in the ring and see.  That's all you can do, right?

So what did everyone else do over the weekend?  Anything fun or crafty?  I'd love to hear about it.

Friday Freebie

Here we are again, another Friday. And I do believe that it's supposed to be a heat wave today and tomorrow.  22ºF today and a staggering 34ºF on Saturday.  But I guess anything is better then the -10ºF of yesterday.  But it will be short lived, it's only predicted to be 9º by Sunday.  Oh WI weather.

We don't really have any plans for the weekend.  I'm gonna work on some custom orders and probably work on the new studio a bit.  Slowly buy surely I'm moving in.  The in-laws might stop by, they might not.  Kind of a laid back weekend.

But enough about that, let's get to this weeks freebie.
