We Made Santa's Nice List!

Oh my goodness Christmas was good to me!!! My mom talked Santa into gifting me with three boxes FULL of old jewelry to sift through, take apart, and make into my own! I'm talking over 40 pounds of jewelry!! Honestly, there's so much there it's a little overwhelming! My sneaky little husband knew about this gift and gifted me additional storage boxes for all the new goodies! Much of my weekend was spent organizing jewelry :)
Sudden movements would have been disasterous.

My little ladies like to help out too :)

Good thing I like to organize, huh?!?!

After many hours of working through the boxes, I called it a night and called over April to help the following day! We partook in a jewelry fest in my spare bedroom/workspace and got lots done while watching hours upon hours of Dexter with my imported sister! April worked her tail off sorting through things and found so many great little gems to work with!

It was a wonderful time and always feels great to get lots done!

Of course it couldn't have been possible without these fuzzbuckets...

We hope your holidays have been grand thus far! May they continue to be!

I Dream of Jewelry

I find it funny that we work mainly on jewelry but I've yet to blog about any! Now's a better time than ever, eh?

A few months ago April, my jewelry partner in crime, had a dream; a dream about a necklace. She awoke, sketched the dreamt piece and later created her masterpiece:

What I find so fascinating about this design is that it is intended to drape in front of and behind the shoulder! How often do you find designs like that?!? It's fun, flirty and definitely unique! Be on the lookout for more of these in the future!

Are you daring enough to wear a one-of-a-kind piece like this???

May Your Lights Make Great Music

Here's my first attempt at posting a photo...hold your breath....

Great success!!! What you are looking at are some switchplates I whipped up this summer. I snagged the sheet music on its way to the dumpster, pieced together whole songs and made the lone pages into switchplates! Most of the sheet music was dated from the early 1900's and turned into some of my favorite switchplates I've made to date. I've only a few of them left BUT I've still got a whole bucket of single pages to work with so expect some more in the future!

Newbie No More!

Girl, oh Girl! What pressure a first post brings!!! This one shall be short and sweet thus should be relatively painless :)

We will use this forum to showcase special pieces, to give props to fellow artisans and crafters out there, to run ideas past the public and to let you know what is new!!!

SheezKrafty is composed of two old friends, Briana and April. Not old in the sense of age but old in the sense that we've known each other almost TOO long! HA! I, Briana, will probably do the majority of the posting so leave your jeering and sneering to me and not April ;)

I suppose this amount of wordage can constitute a first post - so be it! I am done!...and am no longer a newbie ;)

Until later!
