I'm Back!

I'm back from the East Coast and my trip was fantastic, I was able to do so many fun things and visit with my grand kids! I was also able to see my son in law graduate from Penn State medical school!! Before I left I made my Mom her Mother's day gift  and sent it off in the mail since I wouldn't be able to be there on Mother's Day. I decided to make some leather flowers mixed with some beads that I had.

While I was making these I decided to experiment with different combinations, so I made a single flower with beads and then I  did a combination of beads and leather flowers on a watch band for my copper watch.
This is the one I made for my Mom and I also gave her a leather flower pin to match. She called me as soon as it arrived and she said, "She loved it!" Of course Mom's always love every gift they get, but I loved it too!
I tried it on to see how it looked, don't you love those veins! (Nurses always notice veins, and lust after big ones, especially when they are having a difficult time finding a vein to start an IV.)
Here is the single rose, it looks quite dainty on the wrist.
This is the watch band and I was able to wear it with or without the watch and it looks great both ways.
I'm glad to be back home but it was so fun to go for awhile and have some great times with my daughter and her cute little family!!
I am linking to these parties! Check them out!
