I took a jewelry making class in August, but hadn't even attempted to make any since then because I admit I was a bit intimidated. One of the items I wanted to include in our OOT bags, was a handmade bracelet for each of the ladies. I could have bought them, but I like the idea of this DIY plus I think it will be fun to see them be worn on the trip. So without further ado...
First I want to send a shout out to COCO!!! I am in the final stages of finishing my boarding pass invites. Coco provided me with templates and even sent me the exact paper I wanted to use (that she had left over) so I could see how they would look!!! I don't have enough thank you's for you COCO!!!! These are definitely not as glamorous as some, but I still am very proud of my DIY challenged booty!!!
I have caught a few things I want to change/edit/re-do (lack of proof reading) But ultimately, once those items are fixed, I am thinking I am ready to put them together.
What do you think???? 1st photo is from my phone and the last 2 are scanned copies. Again, I have found a several things that need to be fixed. i.e. passenger receipt 2 of 3 etc....but then I will find a cute brad, but them in a jacket, raffia and then into the envelope....
Last Friday, I posted the print-outs for our 1st Aid Kit. Well, since I took off a week of DIYing I just wanted to share the beginning results of putting these labels on. Disclaimer as always ;-) I'm using my iPhone.
I want to share picture of my foot jewerly that was design by THE GREAT CHELSEA!!!!!!!
She has sent me some preview picture of mines & my little girl's foot jewels...cant wait for them to come so we can model them for you guys.
so here they are
You know my printer friend was trying to act up on me on Monday! I think although new, he's a little bipolar. Sometimes he wants me to put labels face up, then other times face down. But on this particular day, he just totally was like I'm going to get this paper jammed. He knows very damn well that I only had 15 minutes before my boss came in (usually but this day she chose to show up but I didn't know she wasn't coming in, so I'm manic). Then my work mom came over and said "oohhhh you better hurry up" She didn't know that our boss wasn't coming in either. Low and behold 2 minutes before my boss was typically do, all fixed... We find out about 15mins later that she wasn't coming in. I was made at him for the rest of the day... but since he allows me to USE him up... I totally forgave him and told him "I'll be back" in my Arnold S voice... he's getting a big break because the State Surveyors will be there till Friday so I know that he will be ready for me next week to do some heavy printing (if I'm finished our welcome book).
Stay tuned for the "Adventures of the New but now gently Used, Work Printer at Chanel's Job" Whew It's time for me to go to bed.. Nite ladies
