Monday, Monday

I hope this Monday is being good to you. I wanted to say thanks for all my birthday greetings. It was so hot here, that I opted to stay at home and enjoy the day with my hubby. He had already taken me out to eat earlier in the week and chauffeured me around to buy birthday goodies, courtesy of my sister.

I was really in need of kitchen supplies, as after a while you just need to replace stuff. He pushed the buggy at Target's (the best place for kitchen goodies) and I started filling it up. Here is what I ended up with...

DH got me the greatest pair of sandals, flip flop type with a wonderful arch support. We got them from Zappos which is the best online shoe site ever.

I ordered a new awesome art clay, called Clay Craft, made by Decoclay. It is an air dry type, used to make bridal arrangements and such. Can't wait to try this.

Now all that aside, I did have time to make some jewelry. I had a chance to finish my pearly dangle bracelet, which is so comfortable to wear, I just love it.

I also made two pair of dangle earrings, fairly large so you can see them now that my hair is longer. They are made from sculpey ultralight, which is white, so I painted them with acrylic paints.

Pretty funky, huh?

You can't go wrong with dots, ever!

Well, that's it for today. Take care and enjoy your week.

Happy Belated! Looks like you did well! I too love Target. I recently bought some kitchen things there too. Love the earrings you made too wild! I think I have finally unpacked the last of the boxes. I still need to put somethings away, but not today. And I love your new banner! Good to hear from you again! Hugs***Renea

I love your earrings. Love the brush strokes on the hearts, it makes a great pattern.
I just bought kitchen stuff this weekend too. I went to an outlet store and got whisks. We didn't have any, now I have 3. We also got some pyrex with lids.
Enjoy the rest of your week!

I can't say about you, but certainly say that your husband is the happiest person on this earth for having such an artistic wife. I feel jealous of him.
