There are many great pieces at really great prices! Proceeds benefit breast cancer patients. This is a wonderful cause and a great way to get beautiful art!

I found this really great vintage key chain at a yard sale over the weekend. The woman who sold it to me said that her dad brought it home from France. I fell in love and had to use it in some way. This necklace is what it became. I didn't want to take away from the piece so I simply added a great faceted piece of labradorite and a sea glass bead between a couple of swarovski crystals. I think it came out perfect and this one, I'm keeping for myself! Please check out my other creations on Etsy and on Zibbet.

I love this dress! Alice is one of my favorite characters and Tim Burton's was just perfect! The costuming in the whole movie was outstanding but I especially loved this dress of Alice's. Oh how I wish I could pull off the whole Helena Bonham Carter look. Anyway, I would highly recommend this movie, even if you can't take Tim Burton and his madness, (I happen to love it) it is worth it just to see the costumes!

I made this the other day and just had to share it. It turned out so good, my family loved it! I am on a low fat diet and can easily adjust as needed by using low fat or fat free cream cheese and low fat cream soup. I also ALWAYS use cream of mushroom in place of cream of chicken because cream of chicken just grosses me out...I did not cut up the chicken but just threw it in and shredded it after it was cooked, a lot easier I think. If you try it, let me know what you thought:) Just follow this link for the recipe:

I just opened a new shop on Zibbet. I really like it a lot. I am able to link my Etsy shop, Flickr and Facebook to the shop. They do not take anything to list or from my sales. I can have unlimited listings and have 4 pictures per listing. It is a really great place to sell. If you are thinking about a new marketplace to sell, check them out. You can visit my shop at http://zibbet.com/piecebypeacedesigns

This is the piece I made for Beautiful Grim. Beautiful Grim is a auction benefit that will be held this spring. It is being put on by Daarken and Leif Jeffers. Daarken's girlfriend Cat was diagnosed at the age of 25 with breast cancer. The proceeds of this benefit will go towards Cat's medical bills as well as to other breast cancer charities.
You can read about Cat's amazing journey at beautifulgrim.com/blog She is a really incredible person!
There are about 200 artists involved with the event. Most of the artists donating are real, true artists, something I just try to be. I was thrilled when Daarken accepted my offer to donate a piece of jewelry. It took me a while to come up with an idea to represent beautiful grim (the theme of the event). This isn't even what I had in mind but I think it came out quite good. I love the chaos of it with all the strands each made with different materials. I think it represents how chaotic our own journeys can be, messy and a wreck. But sometimes when you hold it all up in front of you, it can be beautiful.
For more info on the benefit and other artists donating their work, please visit http://beautifulgrim.com

One of my favorite books The Jewel In The Skull has been republished! This is the first in Michael Moorcock's Hawkmoon series. The second book in the series The Mad God's Amulet is due out in April. I am thrilled to read these books again and I highly recommend them! I also recommend reading The Elric Saga.
I ran across these fabulous blocks yesterday and just had to show them off, I love Alice In Wonderland! These handmade blocks are in Kara's shop The Aviary. Please visit her shop to find these and lots of other great handmade items like, diorama boxes, gift card holders and watchmaker tin magnets. She is in the process of adding a total of 22 block trios, so make sure to check back regularly!
