Posts Tagged ‘key chain’

Last on my MUST-do list regarding beading was a blue/aqua gift. I made a key chain too cause I had the clasp and you can hook it to whatever.
{The Eiffel Tower is there cause it’s sort of a private joke; see we have a town called Parys, that’s Afrikaans for Paris. So it’s not such a biggie when you say that you are shopping in Paris 😉 }

I love the hand made charm and got a whole bunch of them. There’s supposed to be a coffee cup there too, but with so many doodahs, it’s probably hiding behind some. I added 2 ribbons this time  – I like adding it as it seems to soften the whole metal look.

I’ll try and get this mailed over the weekend. Hope my friend likes it!

Following on the post where I learned about beading and made two bookmarks.

I made a keychain the other day – it’s super chunky and full of little charms for my cousin to find. She’s having their first baby, also a little girl, and I wanted to make something especially for her new Mommy – people tend to focus so much on the new baby, that mommy sometimes feels a little neglected ;) s’true.

Some of the charms I’ve put on are a kitty, cute shorts, made with love, strawberry, made for an angel, coffee cup, swirly, love and laugh cameo’s and lots of beads and dangly bits. Hope she like it 😀

I got her some goodies for baby too, like receiving blanket, baby-gro’s (some call them onesies… I think), Fissan Paste bum cream (that I SWEAR by), petroleum jelly, some cute hair bands, and the infamous Jungle Juice recipe. Getting all broody just making up this care package! I want to get maybe 1 or 2 more things, then I’ll mail it.
