A Special Thank You For A New Idea...

This was such a fun idea that I had to try it. Marilyn at Seeing Things gave an excellent tutorial on making these, as well as  other fun things.
Please check out her blog for some amazing projects.
 These are hat pins. Actually you can wear them anywhere.
 The combinations are endless.
I added a squishy earring back so the the pin is secure and it won't stab you.

What Would You Do?

Yes, What would you do with collections that you are no longer interested in?
I started this collection for my daughter when she was a small child. These are 
Boyds Bears.
They could be worth something to someone....But what do I do?
 This is a collection of...Yes, Mickey Mouse. This collection was started after we took her to Disney World for the first time. Other friends helped with this collection along the way. What do I do with this one? Please, I need ideas...
 This is my collection of buttons. I've had these for many years and I'm not ready to give them up.
 They are easily stored in a huge jug, taking up very little space.
 Until dumping them out on the table to go through them for a project.
 These are all glass and jet buttons.
Here are a few vintage buttons.
I estimate that I have over 2000 buttons.
What do you collect?
I also have a collection of very old keys that my dad started for me. I still have those but will blog about them another time.

New Items...

I recently brought some of the bracelets that I make to an Art Show.
This is what these look like when someone is wearing this type.
 This next bracelet wraps around your wrist and snaps underneath.
 Here is a close-up of the sparkle.
By the end of the show I had none left...I think that they were a hit.
I thought that I would share them with you also.
