Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!  I just got done filling plastic eggs with treats for a little easter egg hunt at my house tomorrow for my son and my 2 nephews.  It should be fun, though I feel like I don't have enough eggs (how many eggs do 3 boys needs anyway?!).

May is coming which means, Mother's Day, Graduation and summer break for some lucky kids.  Are we really near summer already?  And does that mean I have to start planning my child's 2nd birthday party right now?  Wow...where does the time go?

Speaking of time, I finally found some - and I made some new pieces for my store.  I also relisted some oldies but goodies that was hiding in my jewelry stash.  I threw them all into a container when the move happened, so I found them once again!  I've majorly discounted the prices on them so please, check it out!  Most of them are bead bracelets.  Here are a few that you can get at my store:

I was really into making stretch bracelets at one time and still have some unused beads.  We'll see if I can find more time to make these bracelets again, though I really am addicted to hand-stamping metal for now.

As far as my metal pieces, yes, I finally made some necklaces!  I also got some new metal stamp fonts and waiting for two more!  So exciting!

Also new among my ribbons wrap bracelets are lots of new ribbon colors (though I tend to run out of them fast lately).  And instead of pick a few standard colors like most sane people would, I choose multitudes of different colors at a time...not sure it's the smartest thing to do but I love all the colors.  Well, most of them...so I think a nice array for my customers is welcomed.  Here my new ribbon wraps:

DIY Dream Catcher Bracelet

I had my first Dream Catcher when I was a sophomore in high school.  We bought it on a family trip that landed us briefly in Sedona, Arizona.  It was maroon suede with feathers and it hung on my bed post so I'd have good dreams at night.  I loved that thing.  I've been seeing dream catcher bracelets around on the internet so I wanted to make one for myself.  I found some tutorials but thought I'd add to the list and make my own.

Supplies:
* embroidery floss thread or suede lace
* metal ring (key chain rings work well)
* thinner string like s-lon cord, or 4 ply Irish waxed linen, or even dental floss
* small beads
* tape (optional)
* glue like hypo cement (something that dries clear)

Choose your colors and start by taking just a little bit of tape and taping down one end of the thread to the ring.  Start wrapping your ring with the thread.


When you are done wrapping, tie a knot so that your thread doesn't unravel.  Put a dab of glue to secure the knot.

Hand Stamped Metal Jewelry

One of FancifulWish's best sellers (when I have the time to make them) are my hand stamped metal jewelry.  I like the act of pounding a metal stamp into a piece of metal.  Maybe it's stress relief?  I bought my first kit from Beaducation.  And yes I started off with a kit because I didn't know what went into metal stamped jewelry.  I would have taken a class from my local jewelry store but I was at home with a newborn with no babysitter, so learning on my own was the way to go.

Now I will warn you - making hand stamped jewelry is NOT cheap.  You can get away with using a hammer you have at home to pound your letters into your metal but the letters themselves are pricey.  I've only managed to collect 5 different types of letters, 3 of them the same font in different size with numbers included. The other a different font in lower and upper case sizes.  And then there are punctation stamps and design stamps....not cheap.




 Alphabet set stamps can run you from $30-$60.  In…

Pineapple Love

I am an island girl, born and raised in Hawaii on the island of Oahu.  And pineapple used to be big business here in Hawaii.  My immigrant family all worked for Dole Plantation back in the day- planting, growing and harvesting pineapple.  Back in the 1980's when I was a child, there used to be this huge pineapple water tower in Honolulu at the Dole Cannery.  They took that pineapple water tower down and the Dole Cannery building is now a movie theater!  My how times have changed.  But our love for pineapples here never ends.

Lately I've been seeing a quote everywhere about pineapples:

"Be like a pineapple, stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside."

So this is me paying homage to a fun quote.  Let's all be Pineapples!  Or at least enjoy them.
