A Few Things...

Angela on the Fiskateer board inspired me to get out the beads/jewels I had stored and make a little charm for a scrappy project.
I bought these beads last Summer JUST to get the carousel container they were in. I had never planned on ever using them. In fact, I was trying to find someone to unload them on, LOL.
But after making a few little things, I think I might just keep them. tee hee :)
Now, I have NO CLUE if I did it right. The little silver things on top and bottom were in with the beads and I used those to keep the beads on the string. I have no idea if that's what they are for, if I used the wrong thing, etc. I don't have any tools so I used my trusty Fiskars scissors to cut the metal hooks off the silver thingies.
This is my first time ever even attempting making stuff like this so I'm sure I did SOMETHING wrong, LOL.

Here is a very simple card I made. If you know me, you know I'm not a card maker. All my cards are always going to be plain and simple but that's the way I like 'em :)

And here is the Valentine craft Caleb and I are going to make and send to family in other States.
I'm going to attach a little picture of Caleb to one of the "hands" and put a magnet strip on the back of them so family can hang them on their fridges if they like.

Hey- I don't really know what I'm doing either. I figure if it's cute, it works and this is definitely cute!
