Red Panda

I am a longtime fan of RedPanda's amazing Chain maille!
Just this week I finally made a purchase of my own, these amazing and funky earrings!

She makes such a variety of styles that exude quality, originality and pizazz!
She is sure to have something that will fit your style.

Of course, I am partial to her colourful pieces, but that goes without saying :)

(Aren't her photo's amazing?)

Right now Red Panda is running a contest in which you can win one of her pieces!!!
Be sure to go and check it out!!!

Happy Independence Day!!

The fourth of July used to be one of my all time favourites:
It ushered in my favourite time of the year-summer!
I mean, what could be better than spending the whole weekend with my best friend at various picnics and barbecues and watching fireworks in her yard or down on the beach?
When I was a kid I was also REALLY into doing my nails-maybe this is where my obsession with tiny things started. My best friend got me hooked on using a teeny tiny brush and doing various pictures and designs from my vast stash of colours (hmmm...now my vast stash is in tiny beads, but still...;)). So, on the fourth of course it was some variation of the American flag, coupled with a complete outfit in red white and blue.

So, there is something about this cuff that makes me want to yank it out of my shop and wear it today, regardless of what people may think of me. Because, now, I live in Canada.
I have for several years now, but this year I am missing everything.
I am going to have to content myself with wearing the earrings I made with the left over beads (my fellow American co-worker also got a pair ;)).

I hope you all have a very blessed and full holiday!!!
