Junquing again

I've been having fun making junque jewelry
my latest has been with keys

I wish I could show how
 pretty this shimmers
in the sun light

I used clear round beads
and paired them with vintage
iridescent disks
pearlized beads
and light purple seed beads

The hardest part is I fell
in love with the piece

trying to get my feet wet

Paperclip Jewelry

While cleaning
my studio
I came across some
shaped paperclips 
that I have
been having a hard time
 figuring out what to do with
today it came to me:

I added some beads 
and hung them from 
the clip

then attached the cord 

Why is it some days
 thing just seem to click
and you find an inspiration?

Power to the People

It started on Fri at 4pm
when a storm blew threw

and we lost power
until 1:30pm the next day
We ended up having to through out
all of the food
it was depressing
The storm didn't
do much damage around us

It was ok
we went and replaced
some of our food
then at 5:45pm
and we lost power
again - luckily only
for 4 hrs and we had gone and
iced the food we had bought

there was more
 damage around us

I had pork rib roast
in the crockpot
when it went out
so my hsb threw it on the grill

(phone photo)
and we invited a friend
over since we were not 
sure at that time
if we were going to be
 without power again for hrs
We called it our black out bbq

There are still many who
are without power
and I  hope
it comes back on soon
