Cord Rosaries

This past weekend I was hanging out at one of my friend's house and her older sister offered to teach me to make cord rosaries. So we sat down and I practiced tying the knots, then I worked on getting them close together and eventually I was able to make a full rosary! I went to the craft store as soon as I left their house so I could buy cord, haha. I LOVE the way these rosaries feel in your hand and they're a lot easier to carry around in your pocket because they aren't quite as bulky and definitely not as heavy as a beaded rosary. I think I might be addicted to making them...

Let me know if you would like to learn how to make these lovely rosaries as I would love to do a tutorial for them.

Show Me Spring Photo Challenge

I'm linking up to Mollie's 'Show Me Spring' photo challenge with this photo of lilacs that I took last May...because it doesn't exactly look like spring where I live right now. ;-)

GIVEAWAY Celtic Budding Spiral Earrings!

I now have 15 followers! Thank you my amazing readers! Now, on to the giveaway! Seeing that the Celtic Budding Spiral earrings I made seemed popular, I decided they would be perfect for my first giveaway. The pair I am offering you now differs slightly from my original pair in the fact that the spiral is hammered completely {instead of only on the cross sections} and the beads are glass. They measure at approximatively 1/2" {not including the fish hook}.

A Busy Crafter Laments

Like the title? Yeah, I felt it was very creative.... :P Haha, anyhoo, what does it mean? It means I've been a *cough* very lazy blogger. *cough* :D That just means that I haven't been blogging much. ;) However, I HAVE been crafting. I've made 3 rosary bracelets, a few pairs a earrings, a GORGEOUS chainmaille bracelet, sketched a bit, worked on my crocheting, and other things that are not coming to mind at this moment. I do love you my dear readers for stopping by and I do hereby pledge to post for you at least once a week...and giving my self that big of a time frame, you can be assured of many more posts than that. ;)

I have many plans for the coming weeks. Including posts for most of the items mentioned above. I just need to get some pictures taken. Also on the agenda is a tutorial. My very first tutorial at that. I have put up a poll in my sidebar where you can vote for which of my projects you would like to have a tutorial for. So go on and vote! The poll will close on Sunday, March 13th at 11:59PM.

Also, I have some other crafting obsessions (hehehe) that I have not yet revealed to you. Those shall be unveiled in the near future as well! And, despite the fact that I hate the results, I plan on showing you a few of my sketches...though, as I have told you before, drawing is not my strong suit. You've been forewarned. :P

On another note, we are still stuck at 14 followers......you know that that can be easily remedied, correct? If you are reading this post and you DO NOT follow, please, all you have to do is click on the little follow button in my sidebar. And if you already follow, tell your friends about me! If you remember, I'm having a giveaway at 15 followers, that means I only need ONE more follower. And I already have the giveaway item ready to go. ;)

And those, my dear readers, are my plans. Please check back often as I am very excited for you to see these upcoming posts. :)
