Life & Little Things...

So this is a result of THIS...

I didn't pee my pants AND it was one of the most fun things I've ever done. We collected up our brass. I gave them a good soak and now I've been playing around making some fun pieces :) More to come! Follow my progress on Instagram too if you like!

Soups on!...

Nothing like being down to the wire to really light a fire under my butt...deciding it was a good idea to try and figure out how to upload pics to my new MAC from my DSLR with only a few hours before the hop starts turned out to be way more painless than I was expecting :)

Ok onto the soup! My awesome partner for this BSBP was Sherri Stokey of Knot Just Macrame her work totally knocks my socks off, seriously go look for yourself, she's brilliant!

remember she sent me this? serious drool happened...

Sherri did her research well ;) I was spoiled with this fab owl ceramic owl pendant...I was stumped on what to do with it...still am. This definitely won't remain this way. The basics came together as far as wiring it up into a pendant with come faceted crystals and stones BUT I waited til the last minute and haven't gotten my sari silk in time. So I'll update this piece and share it again later...

the colors of my "soup" are just dreamy...Warm colors and wonderful textures...These earrings were the first thing I sat down and made. They came together instantly and without hesitation. 

This bracelet followed suit...an eclectic mix and that stunning copper toggle...

take a closer look at that toggle...the patina and texture is pure bliss...

With over 500 blogs to visit i'm ganna keep this short. I can't wait to see what everyone else created with their ingredients. My morning coffee and visiting everyones blogs to see their work will be how I'll be spending most morning for probably a couple of weeks :) 

Thanks for stopping by! You can view the full hop list HERE

and I'd also like to thank the amazing Lori for once again organizing another amazing BSBP with the assistance of some pretty fabulous helpers :) You all are so much appreciated!

It was definitely a good week :)

The weathers warming up...kiddos are on spring break this week...work has been non stop lately...all I want to do is shut my phone off, lay in the sun and stare up at the sky and shut my brain off for a bit...BUT that never happens. 

BSBP blog hop reveal is next week...I haven't even started working on it. Don't judge me!

Tomorrows a new day! Instead of waking up and feeling the need to check and/or respond to every red notification flashing on my phone, I'm heading down to the studio and shutting out the "Noise" for a bit. (I wonder how well I'll actually stick to this?) 

Snaps from the week, enjoy!
