new discoveries......


Hello all!  Hope your new year is moving right along just beautifully.  I tell you time sure does seem to fly; we are more than a week into our new year already!   I must say it has been a lovely past week.  I spent the past few days putting together little packages to be gifted.  I am a little late in getting them out, but I am finally catching up with it all.:o)

I've also spent a little time with "youtube" learning how to make resin pendants.  Wow I tell you "youtube" is one great place for us crafters to learn new stuff!:o)  I had seen these lovely pendants and fell in love with them, but had no idea just how they were made.  Well after a few hours with "youtube" I was confident I could do it and even found out I could use glass instead of resin, just as pretty and a lot less work.:o)  After a few tries and a few ruined pendant trays I had it!  I think the results are lovely and love the digital artwork I chose.

I also knew I was on to something when my fifteen year old granddaughter insisted I make her another soon, she really loved it.:o)  As for me, anything with roses and pretty crowns is a winner in my book.  I think I will make a few more of these for sure.:o)   Though it is quite early in the new year have you made any new little discoveries just yet?  Happy week to you dear friends.  Enjoy a beautiful week.

Oh my goodness, what a gorgeous pendant! How excited you must be on your new adventure. :) I know that feeling well and wish you lots of wonderful creations! I'm still knitting (and tied to our house till it sells), but I'm looking forward to learning to quilt when all the dust settles. Have a wonderful week!

The pendant is FABULOUS, Beverly! I've been wanting to try my hand at those resin renderings too... I imagined them to be difficult, but maybe not... LOL! Thanks for sharing & encouraging. :o) Happy Week ((HUGS))

Gorgeous pendant, yes it is! Me, I have been organizing and cleaning and it feels so good. I have quite a pile already set aside for a garage sale in June. Keep up the amazing work.

The pendant is beautiful! I haven't been doing anything special lately. Just the usual things!

Congratulations for your pendant which is really beautiful ! You have tried and success is there because of your artistic sense. Your creations are very romantic. It is a very good way to begin the new year.
What have I discovered during this week? Certainly that proximity and confidence are some of the best ways to live happy and also that doing things one after one is better than beginning all at the same time and finishing nothing.
Have a beautiful week,Beverly!
Friendly.

Oh my! That pendant is beautiful, and you're right the graphics of roses and crown is perfect! I still wish i could learn how to print out those charming clip art images. i know since i don't have a good printer and ink cartridges are soooo expensive, the best thing to do is to take the images to a printer. But I just never seem to remember or have time. Got to do it though, I love your roses and vintage clip art!

I've rattled on and on, my friend, I just want to catch up with you- you're always creating such beautiful things. Hope you continue to have a wonderful week!
(Hugs))

Dear Idalia you are so right about the high cost of ink cartridges. I purchase the most beautiful clip art on Etsy and simply forward it to my local print shop via email and pick it up when they complete the printing.

It is a whole lot cheaper than home, and they come out beautiful when done by the professionals:o) If you have any questions you know I am always willing to help:o)
