I'm Not Just a Jewelry Designer

I'm crafty too! I like to make all kinds of artsy creations - from paper crafts to paintings to decoupaged miscellany...whatever. My latest guilty pleasure has been the DIY network, especially on the weekends or if you're lucky enough to be at home on a vacation day, the weekday/midday hours. This is when the Carol Duvall show, Creative Juice, and other cool crafty shows are aired. Normally, I like to make only my own, original ideas, but since I'm sorta regaining my true inner artist, I figure it wouldn't hurt to try out a few activities that looked interesting.

I saw this fab project on Creative Juice a couple weeks ago, and thought it would be a perfect present for a certain little girl who cannot be named right now as I haven't given it to her.




Here's another shot in the sunlight, so you can see all the pretty little rhinestones which add some bling to the design:



The slowly setting sun offered up just enough light to showcase the flowered letter's bling-a-ling. :)

As I'm completely obsessed with all things floral, this project totally caught my eye! It took a lot longer than they made it look like it did on the show, but it was well worth the effort!

Has anyone else made any crafts from DIY or HGTV?
