...{...Birthday Necklace and Card...}...

Well.  Seems I'm not getting off to a very good start in 2011 for blogging!  It's already been a busy year around here.  But hopefully I will have some down time this weekend and I can get caught up on a few things.

How is 2011 going along for you so far?  Any new and exciting news?  What are you most looking forward to this year?  I'm hoping to make crafting a regular priority.  I never realized until recently just how much I LOVE it!

So today I'd like to share a project that I worked on Monday (while snowed in) and then wrapped up Tuesday night.  A dear friend of mine had a birthday last week.  But I wasn't going to see her until tonight, thus giving me some extra time to work on this project.  I knew right away that I wanted to make a necklace for her.  She, like me, loves jewelry.  But, I've never made any before.  I had invested in some starter pieces a while back along w/ a pliers/tweezers kit.  And I watched a few YouTube videos and Podcasts. 

So this is what I ended up w/...

And of course, what would a present be w/o a birthday card!  She loves flamingos...

ps...she said she liked it :-)
