Accessorizing is so important

I need to go to bed, but I always feel the most creative at night after everyone else has gone to bed. This one ended up a LOT busier than I originally planned, but I still like it. Chet loves to paint these paint by number pieces, and when he finished this one the other day he wanted me to take his picture with it. Gladly!

SO much stuff on this one... Foofala, Basic Grey, and We R Memory Keepers papers, Deluxe Designs Plain Jane chipboard corners and grid laser cut, Basic Grey, 7 Gypsies, and Creaive Imaginations rub-ons, homemade rub-ons for journaling, Tim Holtz stamp on the chipboard corners, and some inking for details. All of the paper edges are distressed as well. The colors are off in the photo... everything has the right tones and shades in real life and nothing is blurry.

This heat wave kept us indoors today, so we went ahead and pulled out the beads and made some pieces. Jessica is trying to make sure she has something to wear with every single one of her new outfits. In the last couple of weeks we have made a handful of necklaces, several earrings, and a whole bunch of bracelets. The plan is to get everything we want made, and then start making pieces to sell to help fund our bead addiction.

Jessica made the pink and green bracelet, and the aqua and brown set of bracelet and earrings.

I made the blue bracelet and earring set, and then I needed to make dinner. Motherhood always seems to call in the middle of a fun project! I will be finishing up the necklace tomorrow. Then I have to start packing up the things we don't need for the next week or so. Of course, all the important stuff, like scrapping and beading supplies, needs to stay out. You never know when inspiration will hit!

Good night now!
