Chainmaille Earring Swap


So I decided to join in a much more fun type of "chain letter" with a wonderful group of maillers. Basically it works like any other chain letter, but with a prize! The first person sent out two pairs of earrings to the next. That person took a pair out and put a new pair in before sending it on to the next person. I ended up with the cutest maille earrings that are nothing like I would have made for myself. Check out http://liles.jill.googlepages.com/earringswap to see what has been going around!!

Beaded ACEO


I really love ACEO cards! My collection is getting insanely large. My idea was to create an ACEO that was different from everyone else's and this is the result!

I used peyote beading to make a dragon ACEO card! It measures the required 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and is mounted on stiff card stock so it isn't flopping around. I'm pretty proud if I do say so myself.

I have plans for more of these, add this to the long list of what I want to create and will keep you posted as they are created. Any theme ideas would be great...
