Owl Bathroom Hook

Owl Bathroom Hook

Raya’s bathroom is getting a little facelift right now, and there are two things she loves: Dora, and owls.  Well, I don’t mind Dora 30 minutes at a time on Saturday, but I’d much rather embrace an owl theme when it comes to decorating.

Ombre Clay Bracelet

Well today I thought I’d try combining two of my current addictions: polymer clay and bracelets. It didn’t come out quite like I was hoping, frankly.  But you know – I am happy to admit when things don’t go as planned.  I didn’t feel like making it all over again, but if I did, I’d… Continue Reading…

Eggshell Mosaic Bracelet

Eggshell Mosaic Bracelet

Last year when I first started blogging, Saved By Love Creations shared an eggshell domino pendant that I loved the looks of, but never got around to making.  Mostly because I didn’t have any dominoes just lying around, didn’t want to hassle with drilling, and didn’t have any better ideas for a base.  But now that… Continue Reading…
