Holiday Project Idea

Hi there - I was in Pier One Imports today - I love that store - and I found these heart ornaments. I knew they wanted to hang from my new chandellier in my dining room. I am having friends over on Saturday for dinner and wanted to get decorating (I'm a bit behind - tree tomorrow!). Since I could not find the ornament hangers, and because they wouldn't match the antique brass color of the chandellier anyways, I decided to get out my 18 gauge copper wire. I twisted it with my pliers, and wrapped the top around a bottle top to get the round shape to hang it from the chandellier rungs. Then I just put the little ornament on the bottom, and voila! I think this is a great project. The ornaments were on sale, and the copper wire wasn't that much either! Hope you like it! Click on it to see it bigger!

New Enamel Beads Listed

I just listed a bunch of enameled beads in the SueBeads etsy store. I'm going to be taking a week off. I'm going to leave the shop open, so if you purchase anything from the 10th - 18th of July, they will mail on the 19th! Thanks so much for your patience!

The Tacky Earring Blog Hop

Diana Ptaszynski had a great idea, instead of a Tacky Christmas Sweater blog hop, a Tacky Holiday Earring blog hop! I was on it.  I had ideas right away.  I had so many I had to control myself.  You can buy these for $15 each, too!  Here we go!

I found these awesome wreaths in the miniature Christmas section in Michaels, and they go perfectly with silver and copper colored plastic beads!


These trees were found in Michaels, on an end-cap - I assume they are scrapbook or card making supplies, but make fantastic earrings.  The holes were a little small and far down, so I had to make LARGE loops.  Paired these with cute little gold colored jingle bells!

And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they were red.
