I've just finished this piece this morning and I have decided to call it "Sophia Dreams." I used  an old rosary, a peanut chain, a black chain and a bracelet chain to hold the vintage cameo. For the charms I added a glass vial filled with silver glitter, a vintage earring that I created into a charm, and I used 3 black hematite beads on a head pin and attached another vintage earring with a bead cap and pearl.  I really like the different lengths of chains that gives it some dimension.   





Sunday, February 20, 2011

Also I still have 5 out of the 20 winners who have won doorprizes from the OWOH giveaway who have not responded to my email.  I will be contacting those today with instructions that if I do not hear by Monday Feb. 21, 2010 that  I will be drawing  5 new winners. 







Lately I've been working on creating more jewelry and love using vintage and incorporating modern pieces.  I've recently purchased copper cuffs and would like to try my hand at using leather, metal and crystals. Here are just a few of my most recent creations.










I know the pictures are not all that great.  I'm still trying to figure out what is going on with my camera.

sorry everyone I meant to post this yesterday, however, when  I picked my daughter up from school yesterday afternoon she complained of a sore throat and she had a fever so I was busy tending to her needs.

MATCHBOOK CARDS #63  Susan said...
Hi there1 and thanks for visiting my blog, and good luck, Iam adding more today also as I have hit 100 comments.

I like all your giveaways but really do not have use for the bracelet (Hand and wrist issues) the Love album, the vacation kit (I'm housebound) or the inspirational book, so if my name comes up for those please draw again. I would prefer they go to someone who will use them. You can definitely count me in for the ornament, the necklace, the wax sealer, the flowers, and the mini memories album.


Thank you very much :)

THIS POST IS NOW CLOSED
FOR THE OWOH 2011 BLOGHOP
THANKS FOR JOINING AND VISITING!

JOIN IN ON THE BLOGHOP BY CLICKING ON THE PICTURE ON MY LEFT SIDEBAR!!
HAVE FUN BLOG HOPPING!

Photobucket                             Preview
My name is Therese Ercolani from Shelby Twp., Michigan!  This is my first blog hop that I have participated in and am quite excited to meet new and interesting people from all over the world to share with in my love for scrapbooking and altered art jewelry!
My husband and I own a granite shop and I handle all the accounting aspects of the business!. I have two beautiful teenage girls who constantly keep me on my toes!  Its good.


I also have two lovely little Yorkiy boys named
TEDDY
  and
TREVOR

Sorry, their not my giveaways!!
  
In order to keep up with my hobbies, I usually wake up at 4:00 am so I can start my day scrapbooking or making jewelry to give away as gifts!  (I'm not one to stay up late like the usual scrapbookers do), Usually my recipients cry. Then I feel bad. But they cry with love and are overjoyed at the memories pasted on pages that they forgot about. I have yet to really finish one for myself. So with that said!  I will be giving away a piece of my jewelry and I'm going to use tada! The random generator! Now hopefully I'll be able to use it correctly! Ha! Below is a picture of my  door prize!  Well tata for now!  
PS. Just leave a comment and I will select the winner on Friday
February 11, 2011. Make sure that you post your email so I can notify the winner.  After Friday, I will be posting another prize to be won on the last day of the bloghop, February 17, 2011.


GOOD LUCK

Wow!! I've had some great comments added and later today I am going to be posting another picture of my second giveaway for Friday February 17, 2011. By the way I forgot to add that the first giveaway is a bracelet. That will be given away on Friday February 11th, 2011. I may add a couple more between now and the 17th. This will be fun fun fun!!!! 

Well I just can't help myself...
Have to give give give...
So I have decided to give away SEVERAL items...
I'm having so much fun with this OWOH bloghopping and I received so many wonderful comments and met so many wonderful people around the world I'm going to give away more more more!!
Here are the pictures of my giveaways. They will be random, maybe daily, maybe every other day or maybe twice a day!  So check out below all my door prizes!
#1 Here is an ornament I made from a wine cork . I added an image and beads and then used diamond glaze to seal it. The image is Charles Dickens, "Scrooge and Tiny Tim." The quote on the back says,"Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones."    

#2 Crepe Paper flowers- these are 2 wonderful crepe paper flowers that can be used on altered books, scrapbooks, layouts, or you can glue a pin backing and use it for a broach, or glue a head band on them and use for hair accessory. I sprayed them with glimmer mist. I had fun making these!
#3 Seven Gypsies Wax and Seal set - This is a great embelishment maker.  Use it on cards, scrapbook layouts, books, journals, seal envelopes. The possiblities are endless ...

#4- Little book "Words for the Soul" - This came from Southern Living and is no longer published.  This is a great little inspirational booklet.

#5 Mini scrapbook "Love" - Perfect for Valentines Day for someone you love. It is not finished, so the inside will need embellishments.
#6 Vacation Scrapbook Kit -Here is a little DIY vacation scrapbook to create on your own. Embellishments include ribbon, buttons, stickers, and the theme is tropical/caribbean/cruise.

#7 Mini Memory Album. Here is a great little heritage album. Its not finished on the inside but ready for you to add your own embellishments/thoughts and photos.
  Now of course the bracelet above will be given away too.

Then  on the last day of the OWOH blog hop I will give away this necklace below.
Well, I did say a couple of more things??  I'm just enjoying this blog hop so much and everyone's blogs are so unique and interesting. I just couldn't resist! 
I will use the random generator to pick a winner.  Looks like I'll be counting to find out which number the winner is. I thought the random generator assigned a number to each comment.  Guess not.  Oh well. Good luck again to all of you who have brightened my day and enjoy my blog.  Don't forget to provide your email so I can get your info. to mail your prize!! Have fun!! Blessings- Teri 

4:10 pm 1/4/2011
Well!  I have decided that as soon as  50 comments are posted I will begin my first giveaway. This will be the altered wine cork ornament! I just can't wait any longer!!! So again good luck to all. 
Only 10 more comments needed!!   (Hopefully it will be by 5:00pm). My oldest daughter is in a singing competition and we have to leave by 5:30 pm. No, not American Idol YET!! 

2/4/11
10:57 pm.
Well my daughter's ensemble group came in 1st. That means they are going to State Competition! Woo!Hoo! 
Now all I need is 2 more comments and I will pick a winner! Darn!! And I'm beginning to tucker out! I have been blog hopping ALL DAY!   It sure has been fun today!! So hopefully after I have posted this, 2 more comments will be added and I'll be able to pick a winner! Otherwise, guess what, it will have to wait until tomorrow morning after I've worked out with my trainer!  So good night all... until tomorrow when I will continue my journeys! 


finally!!!
reached 50 comments!!!
Here goes
