Nice Start To The Week

Well its Monday again.  Wow!  it comes quickly and I am very excited and lucky to be guest posting on A to Z Challenge blog today.

Click here to go over and visit and see what I had to say about fitting into the blogging world.

Another great start to this week is how far I have gotten with the key chains.  I am designing them for the  Round Lake Arts and Craft Festival that I will be participating in August.  Since I am a huge lover of purses, I was inspired by all the fabulous purses there are to choose from, hence my purse inspired key chains.   I use Swarovski crystals  beads, chains, and ribbons to enhance my mini purses.

Some blue tones

Reds and greens with an added pair of sunglasses to some.

Pinks and purples and black with yellow trim
I like to make each one unique since I hate to do the same thing over and over.  Purses are not the only design that I have done.  I will leave some others to show for another day.

  1. Hi MaryAnn - great to see you guest posting over at the A-Z arena .. your themes seemed to work so well - I loved the Unlikely Couples - strange but true ... but not somehow!

    You must be so creative .. these little purses are delightful and I'm sure will be big sellers at the Round Lake Arts and Craft festival .. enjoy it ..

    Cheers Hilary
