Earrings Galore

Between Soccer practice and games I have been missing beading.  So I have been working on several new sets of earrings.  Enjoy!

This is the result of me learning how to do triangle weave.  These are sewn the exact same way but because I used different shaped 4mm stones they look a lot different.

I was experimenting with Brick Stitch and this is what I came up with.  Simple but stunning!

These are Paisley Drop earrings that I made from a tutorial from Interweave Press.  Well worth the purchase price in my opinion.

These are just beaded bead that I embellished with Pearls and Swarovski crystals.  These are my favorite!

Now back to soccer lol............

Harvest, Pumpkins, and Soccer!

I have been so busy lately! We decided to sign up our daughter for soccer this year and while it is a huge time sink we are really enjoying it. This is Trinity's first year in soccer but I really hope that she does it again. Because of this I have not had time to make anything new at all as soccer practice and the games tend to take up all of my free time.

I knew nothing about soccer as when I was in high school 20 years ago it was not played in this area. I am so happy we decided to let her try it! The games are such a blast and I never knew how competitive I am. The parents tend to get into it more than the players do lol. Of course we are still trying to learn the rules and such but it really has been a good family thing for us to do. So if I am away for a while it is because practices and games are taking up a huge chunk of my time. Me a soccer mom? Who Knew!

I admit I have been slacking.  In fact I am slacking still.  So in the meantime here is some thing I found in Pinterest that I though you might enjoy.    I will be back soon, life has just gotten in the way!  <3
