You have to check out this seller on etsy.com. My brother Jesse just went out to visit some family and friends on the west coast. While in San Francisco he met up with an old friend we grew up with who makes these amazing neclaces. Her name is Nilufar and she learned to make them somewhere in the Himalaya's while traveling the world for a year. She gets the stones imported from india. This one shown in the picture is called a Rose Quartz, it's actually not mine it's my mothers but I borrow it all the time cause I love it. I can't wait to get one for myself and my fiance Jake.

I just finished my second crochet project. It's the same exact pattern as the last blanket I made because I had a pretty strict time limit to make this. I absolutely love the yarn though. It is SWS yarn by Patons ( soy wool stripes). It's a very soft natural yarn. I didn't have to change the colors in the rows the yarn fades into different colors as you go along. I think that gave this blanket a really cool look.

Oh my! I cannot believe what I found at the Joanns website. These are absolutely adorable. I think I might make them for my own bridal shower.
I can't seem to find a picture of it but while my mom and I were at Joanns this week we saw these adorable heart shaped candles designed to look like Petits Fours. I am going to try and make them to put on the tables at my wedding. It shouldn't be to hard since I used to make pastries for my doll house when I was younger.

These frenchy bags are an Amy Butler pattern. The one to the left is the shoulder bag that I made as a gift. My fiance Jake helped me pick out the fabric. These bags are very simple and quick to make.
This one below was a handbag that I made for myself for fall. It has 6 pockets and plenty of space inside.
This cute little handbag to the left is one of my favorites. My mom helped me pick out the fabric ( she is great at that), it has trees with the cutest little blue birds on it. I also made this one as a gift for my sister in law who wont use anything but small purses. She loved the first bag I made and requested one for herself.
