Last night I went to get ready for bed and the entry way to my walk in closet in the master bedroom was flooded.  It is carpeted so needless to say, I have a mess.  It has been raining here for 3 days but we don't know if that had anything to do with it.  So at 11:00 p.m. we were moving my big dresser out of the closet and moving as much stuff as we could.  We are waiting for the plumber to call back to let us know what time he can get here.  Sure am glad we have two bathrooms, I guess I should feel very lucky.  We had to buy a shop vac this morning to get the water up.

Although this didn't come at a good time since I have an order for 30 pairs of earrings and I'm trying to get my Christmas presents done, I'm dealing with it.  The good thing is, now I get new carpet in both bedrooms, the closet and I can finally get rid of the carpet in the dining room that gets used every two years.

My friend Lupe was doing something interesting when we went to camp in September.  She was putting rub ons over the resin she put on polymer clay pieces.  So, I ordered a ton of them.  Some are too big for the smaller pieces but the rest work really well.

I made my sister in law a cross for her birthday from the Penni Jo Couch molds at Best Flexible Molds  As a matter of fact, they are doing free shipping until December 1st.  Check it out.
This is the cross I made using pearl clay and impressing it with a texture plate.  It has a coat of resin the rub ons and two more coats of resin.  This is a picture I took before the last coat of resin.  You can see the line on the bottom.  I forgot to take a picture of the finished one before I mailed it.  But, I wanted to tell you, it's been cold here and the Magic Glos pulled in on itself much faster than normal so I put it in the UV light before I put the last coat on and it seemed to stay better.   It's a purse bling.  The beads were done using Kumihimo with Magatamas and white pearl seed beads.

My computer  is hiccuping.  Will have to try again later.

Oh, no, Bonnie. I'm so sorry that you're dealing with that mess. I hope your insurance covers it.

I love the purse bling you've made for your sister--and I love the look of the rub-ons. You are one of the most creative people I know!
