a long time coming


I have been wanting to make a jeweled Christmas tree for years now. My mother-in-law has one she made back in the day... that even has lights on it. I have been haphazardly collecting costume jewelry in pursuit of someday getting around to it for years too. I finally got my crap together in January- got a frame, some fancy fabric, made a few final ebay costume jewelry lot purchases and as February approached.... decided to make a heart instead. I still plan on making a Christmas tree, I mean really- who can have too many of this type of fancy decor in their house? (maybe I need to make an Easter egg and a pumpkin too) Just kidding and I'll tell you why, this crazy heart, when all the numbers are in- was not cheap. Myself and then my posterity better cherish this little baby forever, I'm talking specific mention in the will, custody battles and so on.

I love the Easter egg idea. I just might have to do it! I recently received my birthday present from my loving sister. It was a Noelle O apron. It is adorable! I will think of you as I make my scrumptous dinners.

talk about drift wooding...this is drift sparling, blinging, loving. Yowze! Can't wait to see the pumpkin.

Love it! I like it best as a heart, I think. So sparkly and pretty...

Did you see the post about my mother-in-laws christmas tree one, I'm going to fight for that baby I tell you what. Your heart is very cute. I didn't even think about trying to make my own, that's a good idea but you are right probably not cheap.

Hello, I came to you through colett and had to comment because I am collecting jewlery for a Christmas tree too! My grandma is slowly giving me hers as she gets rid of everything, I am intimidated by the amount of effort it will take. I love this, maybe I will do a flower or something. BEAUTIFUL JOB!!
