Charmed I'm Sure...Reveal Time!

Once again Lisa from Pine Ridge Treasures' has put together a most 'charming' design kit and blog hop! I always enjoy Lisa's kits. She provides lots of inspiration with the beads she selects and this kit is no exception, filled with gemstones and charms perfect for creating.

A quick shot of all the beadie goodness. I love the colors in this kit...gorgeous greens and earthtones with cream and silver accents. I had a few ideas for designs but as with most design kits, I set it aside for another day closer to reveal date ...I think we all know how that goes... So the time passed, the Thanksgiving holiday came and went and a big holiday bazaar I'm vending at started... As I'm sure you are imagining at this point, I have realized I have a few days and nothing created. I know, I know...shocking!

But at the last minute I did manage to create these fun earrings that I really love! I've also decided to start playing with more photo backgrounds, so my first experiment is with a bamboo placemat. I think I like it...what do you think? Anyway, that's it for me this round. I'm writing this right before bed as I'm entering the second weekend of the holiday bazaar, needless to say things are still cray, cray around here! I hope you will visit all the lovely participants listed below to see what they created. I will be hopping around later this evening after my busy bazaar day. ~Kari
