Sarah Hurley Challenges: All that Glitters is Gold

Good morning everyone, hope you are well. Here I am with my Sarah Hurley Challenge project :-) Here I am with my first UTEE project :-) I used Sarah Hurley's Wonderland kit for my cards in the rose garden image. I then placed a metal cookie cutter over the image and poured gold glitter then the UTEE in, made a hole with a pokey tool and left to dry. When it was thoroughly dry I took the cutter and pokey tool away and cut the card around the heart that remained. I then added jewellery wire with gold seed beads and crimped them onto a jump ring which I attached to a keyring.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
The Altered Alice: What a Wonderful Dream it has Been
Make My Monday: Make my own embellishments
Crafting by Design: Anything Goes
Inklings and Yarns: Anything Goes
Simon says Stamp: Anything Goes

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
