New for 2011

Alright, I must admit, I have been VERY bad at "blogging" however, I haven't completely disappeared off the earth. I've been posting in LinkedIn, Twitter, a little bit at StumbleUpon, however, I'm still trying to understand that one & of course on Facebook. All of these social networks, it's hard to keep up!!

I just wanted to share with you a new idea that I've been considering for probably the last 3 months & finally decided this last week to give it a try.....................Wristlet Key Chains made from (but of course) repurposed materials.  

All of those little snippets of pieces that have been too small to use in my other pieces, now have a new home, (other than the trash can.)  Although I question, "Am I saving TOO much?!" I'd rather you not see me on the next episode of Hoarders!! :)
These wristlet key chains are 6" long by 1.25" wide.  I will also be creating others that are a little bit longer & not as wide, so you could attach it to a zipper on a clutch if you'd like.

I'm also planning on some primarily fiber based wristlets as well!!

Diet Coke items seem to be a favorite in my shop!

LOVE Cheeto's so I tend to have quite a few of their empty bags in my studio!!  (Have you tried the White Cheddar ones, YUM!! and no orange dust left on your fingers :)

Can't leave out the beer lovers :)

I really enjoy making these & it's always fun to try something new!!  My next HUGE jump............zippers!!  If I could just get over my huge phobia of them, I think it would open a few doors for my work to grow!!  It's probably just all in my head & once I figure out zippers, I'll probably wonder why, I put it off for so long on learning how to sew with them!!
