Pinterest, Besties for Crafting, and New Ornaments!

So you know how I use this little venue to
confess my addictions...
well, I have a new one called
Pinterest!
I can't seem to get enough of it!
Finally!, a virtual pinboard to store
all my creative energy and on
top of that, tap into everyone else's too!!!
If you don't know about it, go check
out mine, I have a button right on my
home page...warning....it's
addicting!

My bestie April, snuck away from her family
one afternoon and I spoiled her with
a yummy lunch and tea in my studio.
She chatted and downloaded while
I got some orders done!

My other besties, Kelli and Karen, kept bugging me
for a craft night in my studio! We finally set a night,
sent the hubbies to Kelli's to watch some "man flick",
 ate a super yummy dinner that the
girls brought and fixed,
chatted, laughed, and
crafted the night away!
By the time my husband
walked through the door my studio was a
disaster of stuff everywhere and creations drying!

I made several lots of new ornaments this
past week! These were made using
vintage lace. A tiny chandelier crystal
hangs from the base.
These were made from teeny tiny vintage bottles.
I filled them with little treasures
including a teeny tiny real starfish!


More ornaments made from vintage lace.
These always look so sweet on the tree.

The beauty of these ornaments is that they
actually can be left up all year around.

Thank you for stopping in!
I always love hearing from my little follower base.
Message or comment me anytime.
Oh! and follow me on Pinterest and I'll
follow you!

I had seen these ornaments and when I was in sisters this weekend I found an awesome deal on vintage lace at the antique mall and I thought I would try it out. I hope you don't mind me "borrowing" your idea:)
