In real life, I also enjoy making jewelry, mainly to sell at craft shows in the summer. Using some of beads and finding that I have an ample supply of, I made perfume jars, bracelets and necklaces.
Making the perfume jars went very fast and I made lots of them. First, I made little balls out of poster tack and mounted them on a small box lid. (This is were I put the perfume bottles till the glue dries.) Next, I strung the cap onto a very thin floral wire followed by the bottle part. Keeping them slightly seperated, I added a small amount of glue to the top of the bottle part, waited till it was slightly tacky, and then slid them down the wire. At the same time, I pushed them onto the poster tack for drying.

I have had a very productive week. I started out by re-arranging my craft closet and re-sorting my mini supplies. After taking inventory I decided I needed more stuff...lots more stuff! Then I went on to take apart one of Michael's hutches and acessorize another.

This is the first dollhouse I ever put together- the Ashley by Duracraft. I was even brave enough to do some kit bashing by moving the staircase to the opposite side and adding a room divider to the top floor. I made it into a flower shop and was very pleased with the results.
Since I also enjoy quilling, I was able to make most of my flowers out of paper but also used small artificial flower findings. I also made some of the vases out of quilling paper but most were large beads.
Some of the other decorations were printies and items I received in some swaps. I must have impressed someone because when I entered it in competition, I got 2 ribbons! Call me Happy!
