Hello everyone. I hope your Saturday is a beautiful one.

I wanted to show you a project that I finished last night. Last Thursday, Hope and Cammy came over for a bit of crafting and a little lunch. I love it when they both come over and hang out in my studio, I hope they have as much fun as I do. Hope brought a journal cover to work on. It looks amazing--all in Hope's beautiful style. I'm in love with all of Hope's journals---she is a true inspiration.
I started to stitch a spring sampler but then I saw Cammy pull out all her beautiful jewelry bobs. I just had to follow suit. We both bought a bracelet kit from French General while attending Silver Bella in 2009. We have been wanting to make it together for a while, but for one reason or another, we haven't gotten to it yet. She decided to convert hers to a necklace and I loved the idea so much, I did it too. We added our own bits and decided against others that were included in the kit. Basically, winging it with what we had on hand. It is so great to be able to craft together, to bounce ideas off of each other. Unfortunately, we did not have time to finish the necklaces together. Cammy took hers home and finished that same night. I finished mine last night and fairly pleased with how it turned out. I'm anxious to see Cammy's, and see the similarities and differences between the two.

I think my favorite part is the beautiful smokey grey, double sided bauble on the end.

I really love all the colors and how the work together. Thanks girls, for a most terrific day together. Lets do it again soon!
Now, today I'm working on these from here....

In these colors.
Stayed tuned :)
