I had my eye check up on friday and they dilated my eyes.... again. They are healing up well. I go back in two weeks then wait a couple months before we discuss the laser surgery.
My eye doctor's office is close to Michaels and I need gold and silver Premo so we stopped by to see if the clay was on sale... it wasn't and they were out of gold and silver anyway but I did buy some Perfect Pearls powders, a couple rubber stamps that were on sale and they had micro glass balls in really neat colors.... I love micro balls... so I had to have the assortment. I also wanted black micro balls. Remember I said my eyes were dilated? after I got home I discovered instead of the black micro balls I had grabbed something call flocking powder. So, any suggestions what I can do with black flocking powder? I know I can return it but I'm not good about returning things... and if I go back to Michaels I will spend more money, I try to restrict my Michael's visits to once a month.... I can't resist.. I am a craft supply junky, if I see a "NEW" item signs, I'm a goner, I buy it every time... the micro ball assortment was a "New" item. Good thing I have my Michael's membership card!! Boy did they see me coming. Hey...Do not snicker, I know YOU are a junky too!!
Okay, I have a couple rather large boxes filled with pieces that could be either pendants or pins. I put them aside until I decide how to use them but the number is getting out of hand. Then I saw how Anita's delightful kitties can be worn either as pins or pendants... check her new shop on Artfire Melody O Designs .... and realized that is a perfect solution to my problem. I did a google search and found pinbacks with bails, ordered a bunch and now all I have to do is wait for them to arrive.
In the mean time I made a few more pendant/pins and am now working on a couple necklaces.
Here are the pendants

Art Deco design in orange and purple.
Mixed media with gathered polymer clay "fabric" and colored wire. This one is quite large.
Egyptian pin/pendant in gold and red. See the little micro balls? I had the gold ones before I went to Michaels.... did I mention I like micro balls?
I've had these last two layered pieces for awhile and I finally got around to sanding them. I have piles of unsanded items too.....
When the pinbacks with bails arrive I am going to put them on many of my Mixed Media Critters so I can list them in our Etsy shop.
Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from you so please feel free to leave comments or ask questions.
