Hi there all my bloggy friends!! I have missed you all!!

Where have I been? Well sometimes life tells you "Hey you are not gonna craft" and well what can you do but say ok life lol. I have had some things come up and it kept me away from the computer and my craft room :( {note to self: "Would you like some cheese and crackers to go with that wine" LOL}. I really missed crafting and blogging! So this weekend I sat down and managed to finsish up some projects I had been working on!!

Well it started like this: My Ashley wanted a necklace with Twilight stuff on it so there I go to look for some cute little stuff, what did I find almost nothing and what I did find was Super expensive! So I came home and said I am gonna make my own! I have to warn you I went a little crazy! I was having so much fun that I kept going and going so throught the day and maybe the week lol I will be showing you all the little charms I have made! Oh I ended up making one for my older son cause he said I never make anything for him {crybaby lol}. So lets start with his:
Yes I know bad pic I tried to get a good one
Here is a little better pic Of course he is a boy and a teenager so he wanted a zombie lol and the sentiment on there says Whats up! The zombie is a digi stamp but I have to check where i got it I forgot,oops

I know I need to take better pics lol it was dark He wore it to school today so I have to take another pic when he gets home in the sunlight. I am entering this Project in Haunted Design House's Macabre Monday anything goes!

Ok now here is ONE of the necklaces I made for Ashley:

Normally she is Team Jacob but since this was the first I finished this is the one she wore to school today :)
Here is a close up of Edward

Here is a close up of the Team Edward

I used a Greeting Farm Digi and made him super small to fit this mini dog tag. After coloring Edward I added glitter to his face so he can sparkle :) I topped the whole thing off with 3-d crystal lacquer so it is sealed and water proof!! The beads I bought a roll of beads from a local wedding supply store, the awesome thing is they have all colors and they are not plastic!! I added the clasps at the end so they can open and close the chains and viola!!

My kids loved them! I love making them so like I said be prepared cause I made A LOT of them lol I will be posting more soon!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
