Computer Crashed

Just a quick note - will try to get back here on Thursday - but my computer crashed - hoping it can somehow be restored - but so far I'm not having much luck. 
Have a good one everyone!

Greetings, I'd like to introduce you to RasmussenGems on Hand Made Artists.  John and Debora creators of  RasmussenGems make some pretty cool jewelry creations.   Debora does the  beading, creating wonderful necklaces, bracelets, anklets and more.  John does the lapidary work, cutting gemstones & shaping the metal  into some fabulous jewelry pieces.  They also do custom orders, so if you have something in mind, send them a message through the shop.

John also cuts some gorgeous cabochons that you can buy for your own creations, such as this beautiful Lapis Lazuli Cabochon 

I really like Hematite,  these pretty F Specular Hematite Earrings were calling my name! 

Agate is one of those stones that has such wonderful patterns, I really like this D Banded Agate Cabochon Pendant, John does such a nice job of wire wrapping. 

I have to add these sweet Copper Heart Earrings , adorable aren't they?

HandMadeArtists Feature LilBitSassy

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date!
Some how or another, I completely skipped over our featured artist a few weeks ago, so I'm featuring LilBitSassy  on HandMadeArtists now.  My apologies to LilBitSassy!

The creator of LilBitSassy lives in Meadville, PA and loves to create useful but fun items.  Many of her inspirations come from family members.   She especially enjoys making baby and children items, using her imagination to make things that they will love and/or enjoy playing with.

This sweet little "My 1st doll in Polka Dots" is adorable!

I love the idea of this Teddy Bear Gift Bag - made with fabric it can become a great carry all for those little ones after the gift is opened.  I think my 3 yr old grand daughter would think this is a gift by itself. I think you'll agree that it's  super cute!

LilBitSassy also makes some adorable snuggle blankets such as this Timothy Turtle Snuggle Buddy Blanket. Love those little green turtles on the blue background.  She also has bunnies, aliens, robots, frogs, lambs and other critters too. And some great blankets too!

So if you're looking for something that's well made for that special little someone in your life, I recommend you pay LilBitSassy a visit.  Besides her shop on HandMadeArtists, (links throughout the post) you can also find her at her blog and her other blog LilBitSassy, Sassy items for Sassy folks where she also sells her items.

You've got to see her adorable pj stockings!

Thanks for visiting, and wishing you a wonderful day & New Year!
