Stuff, stuff, stuff....

Lotsa stuff has been going on here lately... some of it jewelry-ish in nature, some of it teachery in nature... But, the really fun stuff has been pure crafty. 

Here's a piece I'm especially fond of. It has no name, per se, so I'm just calling it "really cool thing hanging on my door"...   Here it is:




Cool, huh?  See, it's these really massively huge-ish leaves that I stole from my mom (love you, mom! Okay, really, I saw them hanging in her closet, and she gave them to me...)  Here's a close-up of one:



There were six, but I ended up only needing five (so now I have an extra, and I'm not sure what to do with it.  I'll figure something out...) So I arranged them in a big circle and wove the stems behind the pretty bits, and then hot glued it all down to keep it together.  Then, I wasn't sure what to do with the center.  But, my friend Amy was on hand, and started playing with the big bunch of fall flowers I had sitting on the table. So, after she got done, it looked like this:
Pretty, huh?!?  Amy's pretty darned crafty when she wants to be (which isn't nearly often enough, in my opinion...)
