My Tutorials on B’Sue Boutiques

I have started creating tutorials for Brenda Sue Lansdowne of B’Sue Boutiques using ICE RESIN® and ICED ENAMELS®.
These will be posted on her web store about once a month.

If you have never checked B’Sue Boutiques you should do it! They carry the most wonderful selection of Jewelry stampings, findings, tools, Mixed media products and more. Anyone who loves designing Vintage-Inspired jewelry will love her shop!

My tutorial that has just gone up is “Dried Flowers Resin Pendants”


My previous tutorial was a charm bracelet: “A Charmed Life”

My “Painting with Iced Enamels” is featured on the ICE Queen E-Zine today!

Check it out to see how I created this – it was a lot of fun!

The Trade!

My friend Hope Smitherman and I decided to send each other a box of goodies from our personal stash.  You can see what I sent her by scrolling down a bit in her post “Happy Mail”.

I have learned that Hope is a very generous person indeed!  She sent me so many wonderful delights that I could not get them all into one picture.  I separated the items into batches, took pics and edited some of those pics for combination photos. (Did that sound a bit confusing? :)

Feast your eyes on all the goodies I got!




Buttons! (the ones in the middle are really cool resin buttons!)




Chandelier Crystals  and shells!


The globe beads in the bottom of the top left pic were what started this swap!


These beauties were created by Hope (except the Washi tape of course). I have been wanting to create something with Washi tape.
