A little tutorial on making Fall themed centerpiece with pilar candle and leaf wreath. For my wedding (10/10/10), I relied on handmade decoration as we had a small wedding with about 25 guests. This was my centerpiece design for the reception tables. My wedding theme was Fall/Autumn as it was in October. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect weather! :) Anyway, I think this design would make a great Thanksgiving Centerpiece too. Very Easy to make and all of this for under $15.

I've been looking for jewelry displays to display my jewelry at craft shows and stores. Yesterday, I went to Hobby Lobby to look for necklace displays. I went alone this time, free from my significant other who always whine after 30 minutes in the shop. LOL. SCORE! I found this black iron trellis that happens to be 50% off the regular price. I thought the spacings were great for longer earrings display or pendants display. But it was more of a stake, no base to make it stand by its own. I went to the unfinished wood section and found an oval wood base that fits the width of this metal trellis.
Metal trellis: $4.99 - 50% = $2.50
Wood base: $1.9... » Read More
Question: How to remove glue from your stone cabochons or beads?
Answer: Use hand sanitizer gel that contains alcohol.
This is my recent find that I've just got to share. I've received several natural stone cabochons that came glued on paper with double sided tapes. Double sided tapes must have one of the stickiest glue among tapes. The residue isn't easy to remove.
As soap and water didn't do much of anything, I had to be creative and came across a hand sanitizer gel. I poured a small amount on my stone, smeared and rubbed the gel all over the glued area with my fingers and guess what? It worked like a charm! My stones are now glue free ... » Read More
