You've all heard my sad songs about my shoulder injury, yada yada yada. I was able to complete a few projects there, and I made a paper clay doll who I need to finish dressing and then I'll show her to you.
Hear are 2 of the things I did at Terri's Retreat in Manzanita. I'm no stranger to soldering, so I pushed through to finish these. I'm happy with them, especially considering....
The one on the left has vintage faux pearls inside (hey... maybe they are real!) and a chandelier crystal for the top. The one on the right has a cross on top (I made a little crown for the cross to sit on). Inside are mica pieces (thanks, Lonnie) a few tiny seashells, and vintage text curled up which says "she always had a kind smile for us." sealed inside.
We all made little gifts to exchange with everyone there (what fun)! Here is what Natalie did! Isn't she so clever!?
It is chocolate treats (all 3 kinds of m&ms sewn between 2 vintage book pages), a piece of vintage seam binding and the words "Emergency Chocolate" stamped on with ink! So much fun!
