  3. Not sure why all of a sudden I got an email in my inbox but so glad that I did. This post is great as I was not aware of your blog! You have quite a few fabulous posts on things I want to try. Turns out that I met you at the stamping show in Novi MI in 2015. After the fabulous make and take necklace I got to make in your booth, I was hooked. I bought a few round cabochons (wanted square but you were out of those). Just yesterday, I made a necklace by myself for the first time ever and I am super excited. I will be giving it as a gift to someone who will appreciate it.

This last year my friend and I actually got to sit down and do a make and take. So fun and easy and the necklace is BEAUTIFUL! So it got me thinking of other projects and for Christmas I made a pin and necklace for my sister-in-law who's much loved Grandmother had passed away. I used a copy of one of her favorite photo's of her Grandmother. Needless to say, she Loved them! Also made necklaces for her 3 niece's. Enjoyed it so much went on the make necklaces for my friend and son's girlfriend of their beloved pups and made a necklace, bracelet and ring for my daughter who's cat Oreo is her "baby".
