Handmade Gift Exhange: What I Made

Hi friends! I participated in the Summer 2012 Handmade Gift Exchange over at Craftaholics Anonymous. After registering for the gift exchange I was given the name of another crafter. I was then able to see what her likes are and I could even ask her questions to find out more. After looking at the things she liked I knew right away what I wanted to make. However, if it seems to easy it usually is and I could not find what I wanted.

Then I found a charm of a paper airplane that she liked. I was thrilled! It has been a long time since I have made any jewelry so I was a little nervous. Then, once I got started on the bracelet, I was so excited  I forgot to get any pictures of the supplies I used. Oh well, the outcome of the bracelet is more important.

I look forward to hearing from my new friend when she gets the gift and getting to know her better.

Check out the Craftaholics Anonymous linky party to see all the gifts that were sent and received. If you get the chance, I would encourage everyone to participate in the next handmade gift exchange that will start November 1, 2012. 




Love Pendant

I recently went shopping with my family and they came up with this great idea for a necklace pendant. 
There are few supplies needed and it was very easy. 
 We choose a square bezel pendant by Lisa Pavelka and a red heart charm.

 Copy a page out of the dictionary. I choose the word love to go with the heart charm.
Cut the words out to fit in the pendant.

I positioned the heart charm.
With the Mod Podge dimensional magic, fill in the pendant. Word to the wise, use some Mod Podge to place the paper cut out first. I found that the paper began to float up and I had to get rid of a few bubbles.
Let the filled pendant dry for 24 hours.

Have fun!
