Super Exciting News, some jewelry and some blog candy!

Hey there Krazies!

I'm super excited!  I've been working hard to revamp Kricut Krazy - not the look, but the content.  I have tons of things in store for you in the coming weeks.  I look forward to lots of feedback and you guys can look forward to Tutorials, Reviews of tools/supplies, Jewelry Making, Paper Crafting, Stamping (cause you all just LOVE when I get my hands all inky!) and if there is a video, there will be photos to go along with it for people who don't wish to hear me drone on and on about stuff.  Yes, I know everyone loves my voice and my babbling... but you know, just in case  :)

I leave you with my latest project.  A cute little personalized bracelet for my friend Darlene who just had a birthday.  This was SUPER easy.  The little charms are 9mm flat round blanks I purchased on ebay. They are actually nickle plated but look like an antique gold in the photo. (I'm working on my photo taking skills...sigh)  I simply stamped the initials on them with a metal stamping alphabet, then went over the impression with a black Sharpee Marker.  I then dabbed a paper towel with Staz On Remover and wiped across the little blanks so you could only see the dark letters.  D & S (Darlene & Steve) are on ONE link as they are the mom and dad, and their kids are on individual links.  I also added the "Love" charm that I purchased from Fire Mountain Gems.  The infinity link was purchased on ebay as well.  I was so happy with out this turned out as was Darlene!  Great gift for new Mom's or new Families.

These are the first bracelets I ever did. One for my niece, with her husbands initial and their son's initial.  (They have another little one on the way and I will add that initial when we know his or her name)   The other bracelet was for my daughter Amanda, her fiance Brandon and my grand daughter Julianna.  I purchased the bracelets on etsy already made, but I didn't like the infinity link as it was a bit cheesy, so I replaced my own infinity links and tossed the ucky ones.  What do you think?  No video as I was nearly blind after closing those tiny links.  No kidding, I actually got a headache because they are SO tiny.

Tomorrow I will show you a coupla vinyl projects I've been working on and later in the week we (as if there is more than just me) have some great Desk Organizers made with the Cameo!  I am REALLY loving my Cameo but I gotta tell ya, still loving my Cricut.  Thinking about selling the Pazzles and all the extra's I have with it (blades, pen holder, engraving tool, gem stuff, I think I own just about everything)  I just find that I'm not using it as much as the Cameo and Cricut.

Want some blog candy? How about a couple of Cling Stamp sets from Michaels?  I'll post photos of those later in the week. Here's what ya gotta do to get them:

1.  Be a follower
2. Leave a message and answer the following questions:
    a) How would you feel if I added a "Recipe Day" to the blog once a week or two?
    b)  What do you think of the jewelry posts?
    c) which cutter do you use most often?

That's it :)  I will draw a winner from the comments next Sunday and announce the winner on Mondays post.

I hope to have a giveaway once a week - altho they may be small.  Who doesn't love free stuff?

Hugs and Happiness!

  2. So glad to have you back. You have been missed. I agree that an ocassional recipe day would be nice. I dabble some in jewelry making so yes I would like those also. And by the way, I love the videos. You make it fun and I'm always looking to see where the kitty will show up. Thanks for giving of your time.

  3. I love checking out new recipes! Your jewelry is super cute :) I use a Making Memories trimmer that I used to love because it folds in half and I don't have space to keep a 12x12 trimmer out. However, it hasn't been cutting straight for me lately, so will have to break down and try something else. I hope everything is ok!

  4. Your friend is going to love it. What a very thoughtful gift.
