Productive Weekend

I feel a sense of accomplishment this weekend - more than usual anyway. I completed a lot of jewelry (more to show this week), house stocked with food, Jon installed a new hot water heater, and I made about 4 dozen LEGO themed cookies for the Art Center's current Art of the LEGO exhibit and attended the reception today. Whew! And I still have some energy left in me to maybe make some more jewelry....

The cookies were a hit - and yummy too! I have not made homemade roll out sugar cookies with homemade icing in so long... I'd forgotten how good they are!
And without further ado, here is the first batch of jewelry - some of which was shown as inspiration on Bead Table Wednesday. To this first necklace, I added a key and some dyed ribbon to the collection I already had going of the porcelain heart and beads. A very vibrant red and purple creation is the result!
I decided to drill a second hole into the two "romantic" word tags I had so that I could dangle a heart locket off each for some funky mismatched earrings.
The bright colors continued into this pink and purple bracelet, composed of dyed jasper, brass, and acrylic.

All 3 pieces available on Etsy. My next post and listings will be showing some new pieces with Jade Scott pendants. So if you are a Jade Scott fan, stay tuned!

Before I opened your post I thought your cookies were LEGOs. Such bright primary colours to brighten up a very dreary day here.
