Echo Creative Club November Reveal

I once again have the privilege of having a guest spot in Jeannie's Echo Creative Club.  Jeannie makes such beautiful and amazing creations using polymer clay and you can find them her in her  shop.  In her Echo Creative Club she sends you a piece and you then use it to design something.  I received this beautiful pink Gin Blossom.  I LOVE it!
I wanted to keep the design fairly simple so as not to take too much away from the focal piece.  I decided to do a Russian spiral weave.  I also stitched the toggle clasp and added a bit of fringe. 


I ADORE this necklace and know that I will wear it often.  Thanks to Jeannie for allowing me to showcase one of her wonderful creations.  Please visit Jeannie and all the other participants.

Head to Head Challenge November Update

Remember from this post I am doing a Head to Head Challenge with my good friend Sweet Freedom.  We decided that we would do a monthly update until the reveal date.  Well..... I have gone so far as select some beads that go with my triangle bead.

Please come back next month to see what progress I have made.  And be sure to see how far Sweet Freedom has gotten with her head to head challenge piece.

Ears to You blog hop

I first must apologize that this post is late.  When I join a blog hop I always make sure that my post is ready and I schedule it to post at 12:30 am the day it is due. got in the way!  Thursday and Friday I had a sick and cranky 2 year old and then yesterday with his fever it was a REALLY CRANKY day and with Mom not feeling so hot herself it was not a good day!  So anyway her is my post....better late than never I say.

Amy of is our wonderful hostess and found this awesome organization Ears to You .  They provide free earrings to women undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.  She decided that since this was such a giving and easy way to brighten a woman's day why not ask some of her like minded friends to help out and make some earrings.   Her rule was for us to make 3-5 pairs or more of earrings to send to the organization and share with each other what we made. 

Here are my earrings.

If you would like to donate just go to and you too and make a woman's day!

Please visit the other wonderful participants to see what they created for this amazing cause.
