mood lifting mail!

I have been so busy lately that I have been neglecting my blog. I feel like a hamster in one of those wheels..running and running but never getting anywhere! But I had to stop and show off what I got in the mail recently. This beautiful tag is from Marcia at A little shop around the corner

And I got this awesome package of goodies from Amy at The crafty book nerd . She sends out Random act of kindness packages and she sent me one!

How cute is this tag?!

I can't wait to use all of it....if life ever slows down! Thanks you so much Marcia and Amy for giving me fun mail to open!:O)

Steampunk Jewelry

This is my newest Steampunk Jewelry, just in time for the craft fairs around the corner!


Bracelets I made from metal tags on furniture.

I'm using old bingo cards to display my jewelry

I have a craft fair tommorow..outside...forcast says high of 48 degrees. Time to get out the winter coat and hat! :O)

A winner, a gynormous dollhouse, and a pink elephant!

I went to and it picked a winner for the circus domino book I made for the bog party "Moonlight Under the Big Top". The winner was Sabine at Stempeltanz ! Congrats! As soon as I get your mailing info I will send it out!

This last weekend I spent two days at Nebraska's biggest yard sale! Its called the Junk Jaunt and it's 300 miles of yard sales and vendors. I look forward to it all year :O)

My husband and I spent the two days looking for treasure...

Don't you think these iron letters are cool? I wanted to take them all!

And can you believe this gynormous doll house?! I want to live there!

how cute is he?

Yes, a pink elephant in someones back yard!

I came home with lots of cool stuff but this was my best find...lots of watches to tear apart for new jewelry!!
