Game piece necklace and a card with a statement...




Here is a fun necklace you can make using odd dominoes.
First, sand the surface with a fine grit sandpaper.
Next, you can add color with sharpie markers. But here, I decided to keep it plain.
Then, I used green diamond dew drops from The Robin's Nest the leaves of the holly berries.  (I'm so going to hope that Santa brings me more of these green diamonds this year!)  Mini Red Dew Drops were used for the berries.  Mini Gold Dew Drops were used for the sides. Both minis can be found in the Ornament collection.  
Lastly, glue a barrel bead on top and thread your ribbon through so you can wear it through the Christmas holidays! (Aka, the day after Thanksgiving!)
I used Helmar's  450 Quick Dry Adhesive to glue on the baubles!




Btw, Robin's Nest is having a design team call and I am reapplying.
For the next term, designers will now have a specific crafting specialty. 
I couldn't decide between "Mixed Media" or "Cardmaker," so I threw
my hat in for both.

Here's  a card I created for Splitcoaststampers "Hope You can Cling To" Challenges for Breast Cancer  Awareness month.  I loved this card.  The sentiment is from Pink by Design.


This Classified Paper makes a great statement.
A simple card...with a lot of interest!



So, whether you are into mixed media, jewelry, scrapbooking or cardmaking, 
you are going to find many fun things in The Robin's Nest store.
Fill up your cart...Christmas is for crafters too, you know!
