Where Women Create......Jeweled Christmas Trees ~~

"Pink Holiday"
"Silver Snowflake"

I don't have the book "Where Women Create" but I do have one of the magazines & I love it ~
Here is where I've been "creating" ~~ Remember my "mess of jewels" ~ it was last year's handmade Christmas project? Well after making the Jeweled Christmas Trees for my family I didn't want to stop making them. So I have been very busy "here" - "creating" ~~

I set up "shop" with this cute little work table and all my new mess of jewels that I searched hi & lo for at garage sales, & went to work making more, one for us, & more to sell on ebay.

I really enjoy this sparkly project & they're such fun to make, but I'm about to set them aside because now I have to get started on my "this year's" handmade projects for Christmas & I'm running behind. It's already too close to the holidays & I need to get busy. So it's time to put away the jewels & start something new.

Now about that cute little work table ~ TZ & I both spotted it at a garage sale back in the spring, secretly we both wanted it, we both thought it was gonna be at least $30 so we didn't even ask.....as we walked away the guy yells "you can have it for 5 bucks". So......TZ was quick to pull out the $5 first & bought it ~~ I knew it would be the perfect worktable for my mess of jewels so he was very sweet to let me be the first to use it & it has turned out to be my perfect little place to create ~ I love this little table & it's kept me organized & making Jeweled Christmas Trees ~ thanks TZ ~
You can have it back now as I'm moving on to other projects :-)

I've always wanted to make one of those Christmas trees. Yours are amazingly beautiful! It's obvious that you put alot of thought into the design of each one! Love that little table too, and you got an amazing deal on it!
Have a great day!
