I love to create, what? anything and everything - specially if I can paint it, too! I love to use my own sketches in all the stuff I paint, from fabric, to wood, to glass and beads, yes I like to make my own beads and paint them too!!!
Now I have lots of scrapbook materials - yet this is how I scrapbook - I take wood frames and decorate them - now I don't have any idea of what colors, embellishments, papers or paints I'm going to need - so that means I have to have everything on hand and just let my imagination go WILD! so far I LOVE every single frame that I have done. I've posted some previously but here are the latest additions - still have more to work on but for now I'm going to concentrate on making my own embellishments to use on all my projects from home decor to accessories and anything else that I can think of making. I believe that crafting is not only a way for me to relax from all the daily stress - but it keeps my BRAIN active and functional (well at least I noticed my memory is better). I strongly believe that crafting is exercise for my brain, now if only it could be exercise for my body - it would just be awesome! but enough talk (writing) time to get the pictures here.

I received some really fun trims from this company, as soon as I opened the package and saw them I knew I had to make some fun jewelry.
I used the Deanna beaded pom pom trim which is approximately 1/2" in width to create my first project. I decided to increase the width of this trim by crocheting with some white beading wire and at the same time add some beads to match the tiny gold beads in between the pom poms, I added beading wire to each end of the bracelet to finish and add a clasp.
Here is a photo of the Deanna beaded pom pom trim
Below is a photo that shows some of the materials I used to crochet, the gold beads and the beading find…
