Music & Creativeness....

Hey everybody!!! Hope you are all doing good and trying to stay cool {at least if you live in Louisiana that's what you're trying to do}. It was actually a somewhat decent day yesterday, except for the air quality, which was in the unhealthy ranges for people with ashma {which is me}. So, I could go outside and take in the semi-coolness of 87 degrees, but I had to bring my inhaler. "Potaytoe, Potahtoe" ~ so I just stayed in most of the day and made jewelry and downloaded some new {old} music. Of course my little "brain" record player sometimes tends to drown out any real music I'm trying to listen to. Like now, for instance, I'm listening to "Clocks" by "Coldplay", but my little record playing in my head is "Daniel" by "Elton John" and I haven't even heard or thought about that song in years! Where does this music in my head come from? Sometimes it drives me nuts. It does help with my creativeness though. Just look what I cranked out yesterday with this awesome little dog tag pendant I got from my sweet little friend Susan over at "TV Tray Art" ~ please do check out her things when you get a minute. She has some really awesome stuff. The necklace is made with some of my gorgeous Green Garnet {of which I've been hoarding since it's just so beautiful}, the only thing that could ever completely compliment this beautiful little pendant. Of course, the song that was playing in my head at the time of creation was "Crimson & Clover", thus the name of this gorgeous piece:

Well, I'm off to make a few necklaces and then to take Lita to the vet for her annual checkup. Ozzy don't mind when we take Lita somewhere without him, but we can't take Ozzy anywhere without Lita. She has separation anxiety really bad and she cries & cries and runs all over the house from room to room whimpering if we all leave. So, next month when it's Ozzy's turn to go to the vet, Lita will have to come along for the ride. She's my little sweetheart, though and I just love her to pieces.

Happy Tuesday!
xxoo ♥ & peace ~ Kathy

  1. Hi Kathy. Like the necklace. I'm going to check it out on etsy. I've been spending way too much time on flickr and not enough time on etsy. I did sell a bracelet this week though. I need to put some more things in my shop, but with the kids home for the summer I don't seem to get the things done I need to. I've been watching for pics on flickr of your "home improvements." Have a great day!

  2. Thanks Lora! Yes, I need to take some more pictures and get some brochures printed. We are probably going to be putting it up for Sale in another couple of weeks {fingers crossed}

  3. Pretty pendant :)

  4. Thanks Felicia! I just love Susan's stuff. I've made several necklaces with her little pendants. They are great. ♥

  5. This is a great necklace! You always make such cool stuff. I love the pendant.
    When I had my two mini doxies, they were the same way. One was more independent than the other and was lost without her doggie 'sibling'. Now Barney is the same way. He cries whenever I leave and he follows me everywhere. He's my shadow and he has separation anxiety. It's pitiful but cute at the same time. Our dogs are our kids. Yours are so beautiful!

  6. Thank you Ginger! You're pretty darn awesome yourself ♥


Thanks for your comments ~ ♥
