Pencil Bag Neckties

I needed some new pencil bags, and I saw these on Craftster. Perfect timing. These are the ties dad gave me during my last visit. Can also be used as eyeglass cases.

Jewelry Making Frenzy

I made a few pairs of earrings I've been meaning to make since I got back from Europe. I got all the charms in London. The round pair and the star pair are made from shell, so imagine the glossy/rainbow shell look.

And I made this necklace/earring set for someone at work. He was trying to find some red, dangly earrings for his sister (who we also work with) for Christmas, so I offered to make some if he got the beads. He picked some great colors! Since I still had a bunch of beads left, I made a necklace, too. And I STILL have some left over (I might make myself the necklace!)

Voo Doo Ryan

Well it's been a while since I've made ANYTHING! Hopefully that will change after tomorrow (I have SO MUCH to make once classes are over). The Suzzallo people are going out to dinner on Friday and we're doing a gift exchange. The posting said "Find the craziest thing you can and wrap it up", so I made the craziest thing I could think of, VooDoo Ryan (that's one of my supervisors)
I used printer fabric for the picture which SUCKS, it frays and the picture keeps fading the more I handle it. I sort of threw the whole thing together, so overall it's a little less than professional, but hopefully someone will like it!
