Heading Out of Town!!

Well, next Wednesday I am heading to Portland, Oregon and then the following Sunday, to Depoe Bay on the Oregon coast for a week of relaxation and crafting with old and new friends!!  It is going to be an awesome retreat and I just can't wait!!!  I am traveling with my girlfriend, Carole, and we just keep calling each other saying, is it time yet????  Are we there yet??? 

For now, I have had some things other than cards to share and just haven't gotten to posting them, so I am going to today...  One is a bamboo domino pendant to which I added some beautiful Washi paper, wire and beads, and Diamond Glaze.
The next piece of jewelry is a pendant and chain I made using chip board, an image, and glossy accents.  And, yes, the chain design is asymmetric.  It looks much better when worn than on a board.
Lastly (and definitely least... LOL) I tried my hand at a technique I saw on you tube.  Here is the link, RachO113 and here is my interpretation.  Unfortunately, I chose to use a cardboard cheese container  LOL not quite sturdy enough for this technique, but it was fun to try...
And as always, I love to read your comments and if I don't get back to you with a personal thank you, please know that I love all the love notes you each leave... I sometimes cannot figure out how to let you know I read your comment, especially if your email is not on your blogger profile... but please know I read and love every one of them!!!
