Playing around

So this past weekend I was looking though a jewelry supply store here in Oklahoma city and what do I find but a bag with small picture frames. I looked over at my mom and said "I wonder that this could be used for?" So after a little thought and a whole lot of " OH My Lord! What did I get myself into?" I came up with this. I used alcohol inks for most of the coloring. I think it came out kinda cool.

The other thing we were working on was a couple of watch parts pen. We paint the barrel and then attach gears and a watch face to it. After this dries, we will pour acrylic around them so that hubby can turn it to the size of the pen kit we choose to put it on.

A little bit about us....

Hi and welcome to the first blog from us at Pens and Things.  I guess I should tell you all a little bit about us. I am Melida and I like to quilt and make jewelry and hubby is Paul and he likes to work out in his shop. He likes to say that I am Management and that he is production. 😊

So what have we been up to the last couple of weeks? Why we were at a craft show the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving and on December 13th. It was our first time and we had fun!

So after we did those shows I got an urge to make necklace so this is what I did. I love the steampunk style and I want to keep making more! See ya next time!
