A Kit and A Project !

Hi everyone !

This whole damn post got lost and I am redoing it .... GRRRRRRR. Okay... outburst is over, sorry about that !!

A busy week of boxes of great stuff !! Lots of new product for everyone. And I have a project using new paper as well as a jewelery kit ... lots to do !!

Weekly Beading Kit ...
this week's kit is a pair of earrings using just chain. They will swing back & forth nicely and be quite light. I do think though that you could gussy them up by adding small crystals on the bottom of some or all of the chains with little headpins. Maybe next week !! Another idea would be to make them out of various chains ... more eclectic !!

Kit of the Week (paper)...
Actually more of a project this week than a kit. I have lots of wonderful new paper from Teresa Collins ' "Fabrications" line and she has a great little project on her blog. I'll give you a free copy of the download when you buy a sheet of her paper ... and you can make the featured mini album OUT OF ONE SHEET !!! If you prefer , you can get it at her blog
