Petticoats On The Prairie

It's always fun to head out West to Colorado City, Texas for Petticoats on the Prairie! I love visiting with old friends & making new acquaintances! Mom, Lexi & I (and this time my Aunt Stephanie) enjoyed setting up our booth & meeting new shoppers!
My favorite part of Petticoats is teaching the Make & Takes! This year I taught a Mixed Media project... "A Captured Camping Fairy in a Jar" loved creating with the ladies & seeing how they made the project theirs! I found some adorable mini camper images for them to customize to their camper to include in their creation!
A few of my favorite pieces went home with new ladies this show... My vintage military altered coin purse got a new home, one of my signature Texas teapot doll head necklace heads to East Texas, my favorite key necklace heads out West to another jewelry designer and others found new homes as well! I do get so attached to some of my creations more than others & love when they go home with someone so will love them as much as I do!
I have some new items that I'm creating as special orders that I'll be posting soon so you can get yours ordered & back before Christmas! Vintage inspired "Wedding", "Baby" , "Family" & "Christmas" wreaths!
Hope your weekend was as fabulous as ours!
Oops.. I didn't realize I can't post pics from my IPad :( Pictures of our class to follow!

I can't believe it's 2013.. Where does the time go?

I can't believe... I haven't posted since November (after my new blog make-over and my promise to myself to post) Oh well.. It's a new year.. I can start fresh!

 I have so many new adventures in the work for 2013... I hope you follow along on the journey!

A few things in the works...
  * "Covered In Glitter.. Makes Your Wishes Come True!" A party planning business in the Aledo/Ft. Worth area to bring the fun to you! Complete with hand-created invitations to the party either brought to you and hosted by us or just delivered to you. We begin the planning back in October and we will have our first advertisement in the Aledo High Yearbook :)
  * Covered In Glitter Vintage inspired note cards, special occasion cards & invitations.
  * new Jewelry designs will be featured seasonally beginning with Valentine jewelry coming soon...
  * Covered In Glitter classes and events... A valentine class featuring a valentine mail box, cards, a paper doll and more will be the first class of the new year.

Lots of fun new adventures are on the horizon... Once again.. I hope to post regularly and have some structure to the posts.. We will see...
