« Part 1105: A Very Full Day Part 1106 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 1107: Catching Up With Project Posting »

You KNOW I had to do it! I had those twelve nice plaques just staring at me from the table. I like them a lot. Sometimes with my new patterns, if I am really pleased with the results, I just keep them out a little bit and I admire them. This lasts about a week or so (Except with patterns that I really like and intend to keep – like my Polar Bear Pull Toy which I wouldn’t part with for the world!)

(Just mentioning him gave me an excuse to show him! He is packed away until winter when I display him!)

So . . .

Yesterday after I got all caught up with the mail and things, I decided that all those new Damask designs needed just a little something to send them over the top. I really liked how they came out, but there was still room to take them a step further.

So I got out my case of rhinestones and went to work . . .

I am just going to show a snapshot of each:

SLD434 Damask Songbird Silhouettes

SLD435 Damask Kitty Silhouettes

SLD436 Damask Butterfly Silhouettes

SLD437 Damask Hummingbird Silhouettes

I will take some better pictures today and I will post them with the products on my site. I am also going to post the pictures as projects here on the Lumberjocks site in my Project Gallery, but I will do one per day so I don’t over do it here on the site. I find that I always wait to post things like this and then nothing new seems to make it to my Gallery page. I have to be more diligent.

I also want to give another shout out to Rhinestone Canada for their amazing products! Every time I “play” with them, I think how fortunate I was to find them. The company is top-notch and they have not only wonderful service, but wonderful products at really great prices. If you ever are looking for some “bling”, I highly recommend them!

Today I will be playing with some new things. I have about five or six directions that I can head – which is great considering I am a designer! My biggest problem is that I don’t know where to start first! I want to do everything at once!

I want to thank everyone for the tremendous response to these little plaques. They have been doing wonderfully on the site, which means that lots of you want to make them and it really makes me feel good to be doing designs that are so well-received.

The encouragement and support that I receive from you all is absolutely wonderful, and I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

Once again today I realize how fortunate I am in so many aspects of my life.

I wish you all a wonderful day today! It is a beautifully sunny and warm day here in Nova Scotia. Not hot, not too cool. Just ‘perfect.’

Happy Thursday to you all!

I love my bling – I do! I do! :)

Sometimes just a little is enough! I get teased all the time – but you have to admit they look awesome with the rhinestones on them – even in the crummy pictures! I will be taking more pictures soon and you will see how nice they look.

Thank you all for the nice comments, and thank you Rick for the Birthday wishes! It is already a good day and it is only half over! :)

Happy birthday Sheila! Generally not a blingy person myself I do like the rhinestones on the songbirds. Makes me think of morning dew. Btw the link for the song birds works properly even though it says ‘butterfly’. I hear those gremlins don’t like BRIGHT LIGHT! BRIGHT LIGHT! ;-) Have a great day!

Thank you Candy. My morning brain put the wrong word with the right link in it. it is all fixed now. :)

Glad you like them a little sparkly! After all – I don’t think I “over-blinged” them. Just a touch here and there.

Thank you for the birthday wishes as well! Sheila
