Want a little peeky peeky?

My picture taking skills have taken a backseat lately.  I'm just sayin'!  

Ok, so the very best part about getting an order in the mail from MoJoy is that you get a fun little card with my kid/kids on it!  
This one went to live with LeAnn. Unless her mom has decided to give it to her for Christmas, in which case, I just totally spoiled the surprise. 
Notice that these stones are totally different than the ones on the first post of the LSU necklace.  Wellllll, you see, I am NOT an actual jeweler.  I just have this hobby that got totally out of control, and now I have this fun outlet to use my stuff.  
That is why one necklace will be a fat chain and one will be a dainty little one.  
One may have a regular little lobster clasp, while the next one may have this....
It is just potluck!  But that is part of the surprise.  And I think I'd drink Drain-O if I had to repeat the same necklace over and over and over.... UGH!  NOT FUN!
By the way, Lauren, if you read the blog... this is your first AOII one.  The other is pretty cute too! 

And then I got this request....
My fingers cramped up and I got all sweaty and clammy as I typed those words! 
As long as she wasn't asking me to stamp, "Saban".  Any SEC followers out there?  You will understand! 

Mary Allison got all crafty with HER photography skills and asked me to remain busy with my hands as she took this picture.  I swear, before long I won't even have to take my kids in for "professional portraits."  She is 14... Dude.  Train 'em up right.  That's what I always say! 
Elaina.  You reading down there on LSU campus?!  Hope so.  Or not.  That may spoil the surprise.  This is an example of another fun clasp.  It is a little pearl that you pinch to release.  
And for my "sister"...
This is what I would call a "dainty" chain.  Mary ALlison thought it fit you.  I wanted to go with a more substantial chain, but she said this one was more "you".  She DID babysit free for me all day just to get this "paid off".  Ha.  Love that barter system! 
And then, we have a couple more sorority babes... 
I chose to go with Chi O vs. Chi Omega, just because... well, just because I liked it.  I thought a collegiate would too!  
and then, this is your other request... 
on a very pale skinned, pug nosed little model. 
who is thoroughly enjoying being able to participate in anything that A) seems grown up and B) involves jewelry!  
I have tried to take pics of most, but happen to know that I missed several of my canvases before they were mailed out!  I didn't get either of my wedding canvases, so you two, (Amanda and Christie), send me a pic of how it looked at the wedding.  

See y'all tomorrow.  Mo

You know I don't normally post, but I couldn't resist when I saw my new little "sister" wearing her Phi Mu necklace. Can't believe you allowed it on her body!!!!LOL

Leigh said...

I have been wanting to learn how to do this! Your pieces look GREAT! Did you order a kit to get started? Will you share you secrets?? I've looked at some stuff online, just unsure about what I'll need to start.

Love it...do you make Virginia Tech necklaces? My oldest son's girlfriend would love one of those. She's a tiny thing, so nothing really chunky. How much are the sets?

Kim said...

Love the necklaces. Would it be too much for your fingers to make a Mississippi State one?? I would love one with earrings. Pretty please... I will pay double since I know it will be painful.. haha

Lisa said...

the ROLL TIDE is awesome!!

Kathryn said...

Hey! I was/am a Phi Mu! How cool is that?

Amy said...

Hey Mo, I need some advice on gardening. There is a memerial butterfly garden at my kids school that I will be taking care of. It's in memory of a former student that battled Ewing's Sarcoma, Dylan Crane. I never met Dylan but I did meet his family and did some fundraising with them. They have moved to North Carolina and I want them to know that their boy will never be forgotten, so I plan on doing this for years. I want to know some good butterfly plants that can take the Florida heat. I do have a few pictures of the garden on my blog.
Thanks!!

Ok I will get the picture of the canvas this weekend and get it to you next week. It was such a hit. Thank you so much. Oh and I kept the picture of the girls for myself...lmao.

Melissa said...

They are all so pretty!!
The last pic of Ellie is priceless. She is so darn cute! I'm telling you, if she got together with my hellion, there would be some major trouble. :)

a picture a day means the memories will stay said...

You have now got me wanting to order one. Do you have any ideas for one for my adopted daughter. ?
Very cool that you do all these neat things!!!!

Kim said...
