I'm really enjoying making these hand painted bead necklaces. I've taken repurposed beads and painted them in a mix of colors using Q-tips to apply the paint. I love this green and yellow necklace that I made last week to wear with a new blouse.
I put a step-by-step tutorial up on my Hubpages.
This is my latest creation. I painted some wooden beads to look like silver, and added some turquoise accents. I've been wearing this with a lot of outfits and loving it :) Check out the tutorial here.

I love visiting my local library. And in celebration of National Public Library month, Spring, and all good things - I decided to make some colorful watercolor bookmarks to use in my favorite books!
These bookmarks are surprisingly easy to make and decorate using a few fun watercolor techniques. I used a mixture of crayons, sequin, salt, and yarn to make the lovelies you see above. For the full details and directions, visit my tutorial on Hubpages!
