Chunky Bling Jewelry that is interchangable, NICE!

Beaded Watches

I became aware of a fun new jewelry site for " Chunky Bling"  as we all love some bling in our life these days. Now, I don't mean the BIG bling like I thought of as in outrageous like some magazine ads these days. But this is a fun new bling that I can really wear day after day. 

What I love about this jewelry is that I can add a little bling to any necklace with just the change of a lobster clasp snap. It is so easy. I can change out colors with my thoughts about my attitude or appearance for any given day or event.

I can add a little bling to a bracelet, necklace, or watch with a snap. And each day to wear the jewelry, just stretch a little to fit over your wrist for a watch band or bracelet, even a ring. 

Also the watch face can be interchangeable with different bands of different colors and shapes.  YOU can create the look you desire for that day! It is so easy!

ARTsignments is happening! April 7, 2011

Hello dear friends!

If you could use a little jump-start for your creativity, or for your LIFE, then you may be interested in coming to a fabulous free event next week called ARTsignments in Action: A Creative Romp in the ARTbundance Sandbox, presented by Marney Makridakis from, the creator of the ARTbundance approach to achieving prosperity through creativity.

ARTbundance is a creative self-development approach which is all about tapping into the universal wellspring of creative wisdom to make powerful changes in our lives, as we capture the power of creativity and actually use it as a life-transforming tool with real, practical results. I myself resonate with this approach so strongly and I think you would really enjoy getting this close-up look of what it’s all about!

The ARTsignments in Action event takes place on Thursday, April 7, 2011. In this fun, free Teleparty event, you will…

* Observe ARTbundance Coaches working and playing with real, live clients, using ARTsignments as powerful transforming tools. You can even sign up to be a volunteer client when you RSVP for the class!

* Play in the ARTsignment Sandbox as you participate in mini-workshops and inspiring talks given by graduates of our ARTbundance Training Program!

* Receive a fun, follow-up workbook with more fun exercises and ideas for using the ARTbundance Principles in your own life, or with your own clients and students!

* Have the opportunity to ask ACT graduates and Marney your questions about the ARTbundance Certification Training Program, if you think you might be interested in applying for the Spring 2011 program.

* Have the chance to win lots of great prizes when we play some fun Party Games! (After all, what is a party without games? LOL)

This Party is for anyone who is simply interested in exploring ARTsignments and learning more of what ARTbundance is all about! You can get all the details and sign up, here!

Three Special Places I have found and wish to share with you!

  I was visiting blog from the Etsy Mixed Media Art Team ( mma team) is the tag used. I discovered the most delightful book making blog with Nellie Wortman. She has a video making one of her pages and I was delighted! Nellie's Blog is" Early Morning Thoughts"! She is a fabulous artist and her books are over the top for me as I would love to make one. They are lacy and feminine, using wonderful new or vintage photos, buttons, ephemera,  and what ever you like to work with in your art projects.

She will be teaching a class on-line along with many other artists' making various crafts using many fun ideas at  " The Artful Gathering" event! And we don't have to leave home!

  I signed the registration of $5.00 to save a spot and I can take as many classes as I like during the event period of several weeks.  Take a look at the event and see what classes you might be interested in taking yourself. I have it on  the sidebar to the right. Just click! The Special Event will happen:

 An Event to Remember
July 16th - August 20th
Artful Gathering 2011   


 I also joined a wonderful and delightful group of artists who have been so kind and generous with welcoming me to their group at " Roses on the Table". Click again on the invite to the right side and come look around. You will also love it there. Cristina Zinnia Galliher is the site owner and a Mixed Media Artist/ Instructor. She is one very special  lady! She is awesome and I am sure you will love her too for putting this site together.

Wow, Have I been Gone or What?

Not gone and I hope not forgotten, just busy with cleaning up still and everyday life interruptions! Will they ever stop? I found some neat plastic pull out bins on sale at Wally World and got several. I am replacing my plastic bins with the contents and trying to make better access and also I am taking an inventory of what I have around here. So much to deal with but loving it too! I love touching and seeing what has been hidden in stacked bins for so long!

Now, I am overstocked for sure. I have three bins of ribbons, and I still haven't counted the nature items for jar making, etc. I can't recycle glass at home so I save every one till I take them to the local college to use paving campus roads! I try to keep way too many.

I also have been busy with my "ByLightOfMoon" blog as One World, One Heart event is happening right now. I really hate that I did not include this blog also. I love my graphics here made by a Bonanzle shop lady for my supplies, "DragonflyDreams "shop there. It is still pretty empty also, but I WILL get it filled up!

A funny thing ( funny later, not then) happened yesterday morning when I woke up. I always fall asleep with my glasses on when reading to sleep. I woke up needing to go to the bathroom and did, came back to bed and could not go back to sleep, kind of like this morning also. Anyway, I decided just to get up. When I reached for my glasses which I had missed the glass vase I keep them in, I pushed them down behind the bed table cabinet. I thought they were just in the curtain my cat was behind watching the morning light come as he always does. So, I got up to get them and wow, No Find! Panic, I cannot see but blurs without them!

I got a flashlight to look and see if I could see the wire sparkling and NOT! So, then I decided to get the grabber my husband uses to pick up the paper since his back surgery and still nothing. Ok, I do have many magazines in front of my bedside cabinet so I started putting them on the bed to see from floor level if I could see under the cabinet! They is so much molding on the front floor of the cabinet it is very hard to see inside, so I just inserted the grabber and started pulling out. I got a wet wipe cleaner for my glasses but still no glasses. Nothing! By this time, I had made so much noise putting the mags on the bed, my husband and dogs were awake as well and he reached over to look for me since he can see better. I hated I woke him up, BUT, I needed him and his eyes! He saw noting either! Ok, now I have to move more magazines to pull the cabinet out from the wall to look better. Oh My, I had magazine everywhere. These are the mags I graze through for my altered art media and ideas. So, after we got the cabinet out from the wall some, we looked under it again and finally saw a glitter of the wire frame. Excuse me, HE saw it! Oh, thanks goodness, what would I do if by myself? I am blind without them. I tried wearing contacts last year just for this reason, so when I wake up, I can see something. It is a blur to go to the bathroom and back but I can do that!

Well. Moral of the story is I spent the day organizing my mags by type and taking them outside in the cold to sort out. Oh, I have:

Years of House Beautiful, House and Garden, Traditional Home, Architectural Digest, Country Home, Home, Domino, Country Living, Living, Real Simple, Southern Accents, Coastal Living, Travel and Leisure,

Vogue, Elle, Elle Decor, Vanity Fair, Town and Country, Cottage Living, Domino, Home, Marie Claire, More, Tons of Crafting books and booklets, How - to books, and various amounts of more Titles.

I saw a Vogue on EBay selling for $48.00 bid and reserve at $135.00! Wow, what is happening, it says it is rare. I wrote to ask what is rare about it, maybe I have one somewhere, I hope! It was 2007 Sienna Miller cover and he said it had article by Anna Wintour the editor is why rare, it is possible??? I did research and find that Sienna Miller is in the movie, "Stardust" which I think I just have to see, my kind of movie! Kind of witchy, and fairy like, curses, amulets and more! Thanks for that at least!

Well, I have to get going and get links for you. IT is 7:45Am 24 outside and I have been up since 3AM blogging One World, One Heart on my ByLightOfMoon blog ! I have drunk a pot of coffee myself and Lily is up or was up with me. I think she has even gone back to sleep, it has got light outside as I have been here and I can feel how long I have sat here, not easy for Me.!

I do have a couple of box lots on eBay as frstyfrolk now for crafting mags and one woodworking. I will be putting more up soon as I can get them listed. I also have some Harriett Tubman photo prints of the Slaves and Underground Railroad; I think they are a fabulous part of history!

Well, I did not find that one, but I have lots more!

Have a Blessed Day, today is Abraham Lincoln 's bithday
