My sister witch sent me this link on how to cleanse your crystals. Who knew?

Okay, it was my birthday yesterday. After Willie's we went to another sale. An upscale antique store liquidation. I found more crystals to complete my project and so much more. I'm still so excited about this stuff. All the frames were so cheap. We spent maybe two hundred bucks the whole day. Can't wait to decorate my house!

John was happy too because this day was much cheaper than flying to Vegas to see the Beatles show. We had considered that trip but decided we wouldn't spend that much to see the real Beatles. :)

We went to Willie Ames garage sale yesterday and I SCORED! Bought this humidor and african mask BOTH for 50 bucks. What a deal. Must have been my birthday. My husband said he could build the missing drawers. I love it the way it is, but that would be great. I'm going to store my unmounted stamps in it. I looked it up on ebay and it is one of a one thousand. Worth two thousand if complete with cigars!

Man. I am tired. It's 1:15am. I just wanted to say that I am going to make two more drops to go with this one and hang them on my dining room light. My version of a chandelier.
Click on the picture and you will get to see the great little charms I've been collecting and finally getting to use!!!!!!

I finally got to sit down this evening and do art. I feel much better. Spent all day yesterday doing the spring cleaning. I'm telling ya. First time the whole house has been clean in forever. The older I get the less I enjoy cleaning. Actually I HATE to freakin' clean. So I just do as least as possible every day. It is a never ending job anyway.

Okay, back to the crystal project. I'm so excited about this first drop I hope I can sleep. Isn't it cool? I wired an african trading bead with some brass washers and bead caps. Then add some cool charms to the chains with the crystals. I'm really liking the sparkle with the earthy.
