Replicas

Over the Holiday's I made myself a few replica necklaces....found the original designs on etsy and on pinterest. Who doesn't LOVE Pinterest!!! I made these for myself, not for selling....

 I made these Bird nest necklaces. One for myself and one for a girlfriend of mine (and one as a spare...lol). She bought several other little trinkets from me this Christmas so I thought I would make her one of these as a Thank You gift.

I saw a similar necklace on etsy that was a Lump of CoaL necklace. I loved the idea of it so I made myself one using a vintage glass button. I thought it was great for when I had to go Christmas shopping....

The kids are home for Christmas break and we have been making so many fun things! I found this tutorial on Pinterest about making lip gloss....did this today with one of my high school girlfriends. 

We MIGHT have used a bit too much Kool-Aid and it MIGHT have been a bit "tart". We laughed and laughed making this stuff! I am going to try again! 

After the kids head back to school I will recap all our handmade gifts. The kids really did a great job this year! I was SO impressed with their level of creating! My one son even learned to solder...and he did a great job with it! My youngest daughter is SO creative for a 5 year old! She made her gifts and wrapped her gifts with barely any guidance from me! She knew exactly what she wanted to do! Very impressive!!! My other son made these beautiful ornaments without any creative input from me...and then together he made some lovely body scrub! 

More on that in a few days!!

Hope you had a WONDERFUL Christmas with your family and I wish you a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!
