Should-a, Could-a, Would-a!

There are so many should-a, could-a, would-a's in life, that you can drive your self crazy thinking about those, for instance, I should-a posted a weekend eye candy, I could-a done it if I were more organized, and I would-a done it, but if I did, something else that needed doing would have fallen by the way side.

So I'm taking the easy way out today because I have to finish getting ready for the Rose Bowl craft show tomorrow. I recently had 2 professional photos taken of my work. They were taken by Marsha Thomas a friend and member of the PMC Guild. I'm so happy with the pictures that I had to share them with you. The first one is a water etched pendant made from PMC Standard. It is an eraser carved image that I did "a number" of years ago.

The next one is a new piece Made from Robert Dancik's Faux Bone. You can also see it in his FB Gallery along with some other really cool jewelry pieces. Just click on his name and you'll go there.

I've officially run out of time! Off to do things I SHOULD BE DOING! Hope you like the photos.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

I've been so busy getting ready for 2 craft shows. I haven't really done one in about 38 or 39 years! I used to do regular shows to sell my pottery way back in the seventies in my days of being a hippie!!

I had to get together a display without spending too much moola. So I used some elements I already had, and got some things at Cost Plus, and Viola! Below is a picture of most of it. It is not fully loaded with jewelry, but will be before November 8, which is the first show. For all you So. Cal. dwellers, if you are looking for something to do that Sunday, come out to the Rose Bowl and say "hi". It will have a green cloth on the table under all the elements you see here.

Next is a little close up of some fold formed scarf pins that will be for sale. I just love hammering. Hope to do some more fold forming next year. I think they look cute in the little basket!

The next photo is of some of the earrings. My friend Paige of Hammer, Stitch, Burn engineered these cute little earring card holders. I love them because they are stand alone, so you can put the earrings any where you want them on the table. I also have some on a picture frame (no photo, sorry) fitted with elastic. You can sort of see it on the far right of the first photo. It looks better with all nine spaces filled, but again, load it up and put it where you want it. Thank you Paige!

If you don't make it out to the Rose Bowl, I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the display. All comments are really appreciated, so feel free to put in your 2¢ any time.

This is a busy season so I'm not sure if Paige and Christine have posted this weekend, but Lora is a loyal blogger, so go see hers, and peek to see if the other ladies had extra time to post.
