I can't believe that it's almost 2010!
Happy New Year....
I've been trying to 'red up' ( on old Pa Dutch word!) around here, watched the baby for a while today---she was a fussbudget---and finally fell asleep on my chest---for over an hour! But she did sleep :>)
I had some time to list a new Peyote Cuff that I finished over the holidays---I love this robin's egg blue of the seedbeads and have had them a long time- trying to come up with something I liked---then bought the Vintaj charm and decided I loved these beads with the brass of the Vintaj charm---so here it is....

I've been trying to keep up with my blog-friend Sherry at http://gotart4u.blogspot.com/ - and a while ago, she had some snowmen bottles that she and her friend Linda had made--so I thought---maybe I'll try to do that...
Well, I started a week ago and just finished it today, except he needs a scarf- gotta find some tinsel --good thing I only did one otherwise I would have needed to begin him in September! ;>)
His head is a little large, but- it was the only styrofoarm ball I had handy, his nose an orange halloween lightbulb--the bottle is a vintage vitamin bottle, with lots of goodies inside--the rest, you can see...
just added - his flyaway tinsel scarf!

While trying to clean, get rid of stuff ( which is REALLY difficult for me to do) - I found a stash of old zippers, discolored from age. I should have pitched them, but....then I found some old barkcloth and part of an old ticking pillowcase that belonged to my gram.
So---you can guess what I tried to do! It turned into a super shabby fabric cuff- which my daughter's comment on facebook stated ---'cute, mommy, it's just like you'! Knowing her, that's a good comment!

CCCOE ( Calif. Crafters Club Of Etsy) had a big sale on etsy, Black Friday thru Cyber Monday-- we all did pretty well, i sold one of my favorite beadweavings, Puck in the Garden, my 'Alien' bracelet, and lots of vintage goodies from my Suchandsort shop--
but.....the reason I'm posting today is that during that weekend, I bought some beautiful Peace Cranes from Nancy McNally on etsy---http://localcolorist.etsy.com
and wanted to show them off! I decided to give a Peace Crane to each of my close neighbors---promoting neighborhood peace, don't ya know! ;>)
check out all my great cranes and please go and check out Nancy's shop!
