What I’ve been up to…

I have shared a couple of times already, but I’m just so excited about my comic: “The Cracked Cup Coffee Co.” which was created and¬†written by me, with art by my husband, Tommy Krippes.
Please check it out, if you have time. We have a lot of fun with it.

Also, in my spare time, I¬†have been doing a lot of sewing, and creating, but haven’t had a lot of time to¬†get any great photos. I will get a few of those up ASAP.

In the mean time, here are a couple of photos I took, while I was out with my husband, last week.

New pendants

A couple of cute pendants I made last week.

This one is made out of shell beads, and brass:

This was made from a little bit of leftover wire, and some cute orange glass beads.

My brother made this adorable wooden pendant, so I just added some wire, and put it on a leather cord. I love it!
