These are my newest domino designs...I actually have a few more I'm working on too!
It's been a while since I designed new dominos...mostly because I've been having problems with my printer. My expensive laser printer. Did I mention that it was really expensive...oh, and only 2 years old! It is not fixable. It prints washed out tinty color...not clear crisp bright color. So, I got tired of trying to find a solution and took my little memory stick to the copy store...I think I may have discovered a cheaper way of printing! After spending a fortune on the printer and ink...WOW are those ink cartridges expensive for laser printers...I spent a pittance to make copies! I've made lemonade out of lemon printer, that is!

Sometimes it takes a while...

New Charms, originally uploaded by HA! Designs - Artbyheather.

In an earlier post I wrote about my purchase of an entire cabinet of vintage glass watch crystals.

Here's the post!

I have been gazing upon them for several months now...wondering what to do with them and I finally DID something!

These little pendants are really fun...quirky...dare I say, funky! I'm killing two birds with one stone here...using some of the many dictionaries I've hoarded over the years and also using some of the hundreds of watch crystals just waiting for new life!

Funky & Chunky...

I spent Saturday at the Artists Garage Sale in Olympia...selling my creations! It was a very good day...excellent, in fact! My sales were steady - so steady that it took me 2 hours to eat a sandwich for lunch!
These fun charm bracelets sold well! I love making them - every single one a bit different from the others.
They're listed in my etsy shop now...I had been holding out, deciding how much to charge for them. I think they're happy, interesting and fun so I kept the price a bit everyone can afford to have a little funk around their wrist!
