The unOffical start to Summer!

I hope everyone had an amazing Memorial Day weekend! Even with having to dodge a few rain storms, mine was a blast! I visited a farmers market, listened to some live music and then hit the shore for some beach combing. It was a perfect way to start the summer season!

Spring Bird's Nests

I'm sure many of you have seen the wire wrapped bird's nests floating around the web. I was dying to make some of these adorable pendants, so I found a great tutorial and went to town!  It was harder than it looked at first, but after about four ugly "practice" nests, I finally got the hang of it.

These look great as pendants on a delicate silver chain, but they also work great incorporated into more complex jewelry designs.

There are many tutorials on the web for making these cute little nests, each one slightly different, with a new tip or technique. I browsed through many, but the best one I found for myself was by fusionbeads.com. You can view the tutorial here.

A Show and Cupcakes

This past weekend I had a large Arts & Crafts show to present at. It was a beautiful day in Madison, CT and I was so excited to do my first show of the year. Unfortunately, sales were slow for myself and many others that day. I'm not sure what caused the low turn out, but it was a fun day none the less; I got to proudly display my brand new banner and meet some very talented artists.

I couldn't resist getting some delicious cupcakes from the famous Sugar Cupcake Truck! With flavors like "24 Carrot" and "Strawberry Cheesecake" you can see why they won Food Network's Cupcake Wars!

On Sunday, I really need to relax and get any negativity I had from the previous day, so I headed down to the beach. I took these photos while I was collecting sea glass.
