Snow Day

Well we finally got snow this winter - here is the view from my front door:

I saw a pair of earrings in Lucky magazine that I loved, so I decided to try to make something similar - what do you think?

this is a better picture (ignore my thumb - I need a manicure)

I bought enough beads to make a necklace too. I want to see if I can find some material with similar colors to make a nice summer dress - something with a vintage print - I know what I want I just have to see if I can find it.

Hi there,
I just got your cd from the swapbot cd swap. I wanted to say thanks. I am having a little trouble getting the track information tho, do you by chance remember what is on it?

Thanks for swapping.

Loooved the earrings! So jazzy. I can't wait to see what you end up wearing them with...what about a seed pearl crochet necklace? My best friend overwhelmed lives in Orlando and is a huge beading addict. Shall I set you up?

Those look better than the ones in the picture!
Thanks for the nice comment. It's nice when people who knit as well as you think my work looks good.

The earrings are gorgeous.

That snow pic makes me shiver. I couldn't imagine having to dig my car out every morning.

The earings are brilliant. You wouldn't even know the difference. I would really like to get into beading - especially stitch holders but have no idea where to start!! You are inspirational.

Congrats

Personally? I feel yours look better. It's a better color, and they're made better than the ones in the pics!
