Jeanne's Bags and More

Archive for December 2013

Well, I am back working on my blog.  Had no time for anything else, but, as always have been busy crocheting and working on lots of projects.  My summer at the market was good as far as the weather, no rain, one very hot day and some days were windy.   A little disappointing though  because  people would walk by without looking in to see what great items are inside, making it very slow and very little sales.   Sales didn’t pick up until August when I started making Smurf, Hello Kitty, and Despicable Me hats and purses.    For the fall craft show in November, I worked on crocheting hats,  infinity scarfs, and fingerless gloves, phone bags,   purses for the girls, Christmas cards,  and crocheted and knitted bracelets from wire.   Had a wonderful time there and decided to do one more craft show at a local church.

This is something that is new this year.  Revelation 21 bracelets.  If you look in the Bible in Revelations 21: 18 “The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. 19 The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. 21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls,each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass.”

Each stone mentioned in the Bible is part of the bracelet. there is  gold beads  for the streets of gold,  pearls  for the 12 gates and the precious stones that are going to adorn the walls of Heaven.  It is a good conversational piece of jewelry plus a good witnessing tool.  I found it astonishing that each gate is made from one pearl.  How awesome is that:  to see Gods’ great work in preparing our heavenly home for us to enjoy and the beauty is indescribable.   And the  streets of  gold as pure as transparent glass. WOW!

Other crocheted projects  this summer making coasters  for my friend.  I made these boxes to put  8  coasters inside. To make the boxes:  buy from Michael’s  some paper boxes (pack of 3), 3 sheets of paper and some flowers for embellishment.    Cut the paper to fit sides, cut a circle (larger that lid to glue down on sides)  to cover the top and a strip of paper to cover the sides of the lid,  the glue I used was  acid free YES! paste.  Glued the flowers on top. I  used my cuttlebug and die,  to cut leaves from suede paper and put pearls on leaves.  They make beautiful storage boxes for the coasters or just about anything you want to put into.   Sorry for not showing the coasters, but one box had brown variegated coasters (from Red Heart Super Saver yarn) and the other box had  ivory with black and brown speckles coasters (from Hobby Lobby I love this yarn) .

I will post more picture of my projects, when I can get to them packed away in the patio where it is freezing out there.   This morning was 2 degrees,  burrrrr!  There are infinity scarfs, headbands, fingerless gloves, more hats, scarfs.

Have a Merry Christmas and a great and safe New Year!
