It is just so much fun to be able to put in a zipper. Now I want to make different shapes. Here is a pencil case. I was also thinking it could be an eyeglass case - but it is a little thin for that. Now I want a little square one. Then maybe one with a rounded top. Ummmm........

I went to my great friend Gaye Medbury's house today and taught her how to make a purse. Well put in the zipper I should say. This is the front and back of her "Mosaic Art Purse." (I just thought up that name - now I need a nap.) LOL Isn't it the coolest!!!! Now I have to do a numbers one "Just Like Gaye" and then a total WORD one. I hope I don't have to work Saturday - my supposedly day off - then I can make some MORE MORE MORE. I'm so glad SHE got a manicure. Beautiful.

These are so much fun. Tonight I finished 2 of them. I cut out too many pieces last night laying in bed watching TV. So I figured I could hammer out 2. I was going to make another purse - but now I am exhausted. I have to go to work tomorrow so I am going to watch SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE - my favorite show right now and go to bed. Tomorrow after work though I am going to Gaye's to show her how to put in a zipper. Pass on the knowledge. She does it for me. Share share share. Then we all become better!!!!

I just had to do it. I had to make a little bag out of the mosaic. So I printed onto the Jacquard Cotton Fabric Sheet. I did heat set it - don't know if I have to do that but I thought - it can't hurt. Then I made this little bag with a zipper. I am still learning. I think after 8 bags I FINALLY got the zipper installation down. I JUST LOVE HER!!!!!! I think I need a manicure. LOL.
Today my great friend Gaye and I made a mosaic sheet. I was trying to think what is should be named and I think Mosaic sheet is correct. Anyway - it was a lot of fun and now I want to make more more more!!!! Maybe I won't sleep tonight! LOL.

The Belle Armoire Magazine had these great little birds featured. So as a fun project Gaye and I made them today. I learned how to hammer a rivet with my cool new hammer. I need practice. Of course Gaye's is perfect. We put them together using tiny eyelets and washers from Coffee Break Design. Mike and Chris have the coolest stuff. Mine is the blue one. Oh and Gaye found this cool copper garland at a yard sale and gave me some today. We thought the birds needed to be on some kind of backing. Serendipity the garland was perfect for it. The copper birdhouse behind the birds is one we cut off the garland. I'll tell you what though - Gaye sure knows how to look at things in a different light. I am learning from her. It isn't a garland it is a birdhouse for our birds. Love her!!!! She is the yard sale QUEEN.

What fun we had. Last night at our guild meeting we made fabric beads. These beads have been around for a long time. I had to put sparklies on mine. Just can't help myself. Did I mention how much fun there were. I hope to make more this weekend when I don't have to work.

My GREAT friend Gaye Medbury has now been published twice this year. I think she is on a roll. You have to check out Cloth, Paper, Scissors STUDIO - her studio is the best one in there. I know Tim might have more stuff - but hers is just down right the "COOLEST". I have spent a lot of time in that studio and I love every minute of it being surrounded by the most wonderful creations. The other publication is a book that is also just wonderful.
