A Gift for Mom

So I told you that I would share more creative ideas with you and lately I have been feeling VERY crafty, so be on the lookout.

For my mother’s birthday I made a picture keychain and if you have the time and are still looking for the perfect MOTHER’S DAY GIFT – this could be it!

At first I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to make …a pendant, a charm (to add to her charm bracelet), a whole new bracelet, a keychain, etc..so I just bought everything I thought I might use.  (If I don’t have a specific plan, I like to have plenty of options to let the creative juices flow …the latter option is not recommended for those on a budget – having options can get expensive).

Step 1First I laid out all of my “options” 
Step 2

I decided on a Gold keychain for my mom with the children's birthstones. (They didn't have Aquamarine, so blue topaz will have to do).

Step 3I printed out my pictures at various sizes to make sure I would have the correct size for each charm.
Step 4After gluing the picture to the charm, I bushed about 3 coats of glaze over each picture. I used Triple Thick, but they also have something called Diamond Glaze.
Step 5

I glued in my rhinestones and linked my chain to the lengths I wanted and wa'la!

I was hoping you can see the shimmer from the glaze here and how clean it looks.

I am SO in love with this new craft that I already have something picked out for me …

(Oh and by the way – she loves it!)  😉

(Now, I have made jewelry before so I am sorry, I realized I 
just skipped over some of the assembly of the charms and chain)
Until next time! XOXO, Andrea

Hat Fever Anyone?!!!

Hats!    Hats!    Beautiful Hats!    Beautiful Hats with a Cherry on top!

 (Or Fascinators)

Of course the Royal Wedding is sure to set some new trends and I am hoping that one of them is the hat!  Seems to me that I have only seen such stunning and spectacular hats adorned at the Kentucky Derby and the Royal (British) Wedding.  What a fun accessory!!  And America needs some fashion refinement if I do say so myself!

My mom will often mention how there was a time when women would wear their formal dresses and best jewelry just to go out for dinner.  Have you heard of your “Sunday Best”?  Where have these days gone?  I envy the women who lived in those eras a bit.  What opportunities they had to feel extra special and beautiful and I think we need more occasions today to take real advantage of fashion and feeling good about ourselves.  Why not wear them for any and every celebration!
(There are a few of you women who do well on this and to you I “tip my hat”).

So hundreds of hats, or should I say literally WOrkS of ArT, were worn at the Royal Wedding and have started a craze!!  I googled some pics and pulled a few of my favorites for you.  There were a lot more in the crowd I saw that would have easily added, but could not find online, and NO Victoria Beckham (though I adored her shoes and dress) and the Socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson  DID NOT make my picture board, despite them being plastered all over the internet.  😉

I think if I had a few of these in my wardrobe repertoire that I pulled out for the right occasion, I might feel a bit more refined and elegant, maybe a bit spunky and as one royal wedding correspondent penned it, adds a “level of perfection”.  How would wearing a hat like these make you feel?

Kimmy and Marshall

This is a post I have been meaning to do for some time now.  Since their wedding is just next weekend I think I surely need to get these out for you to see.

I have known the Bride for maybe ten years now.  I call her Kimmy, but she has matured and now is known by Kim, however to me she will always be Kimmy.  She is very dear to my heart and I am honored to be a part of such a special day in her life.  She is marrying a great man who will love, honor and respect her all of his days.  I cannot wait for these two to share in one romantic day they have created!!

I have been working with the family for just a few months now and I LOVE them all.  Both Kimmy and Marshall have terrific parents who I just adore and are extremely hospitable.  I will skip the design details for this post, because you will just have to see them for yourselves next week after I post some pictures.  But for now, here are some pics from their amazing engagement photo shoot.

If you want a glimpse of their wedding imagine this picture coming to life….

MY FAVORITE PICTURE OF ALL TIME!!!
