Creations and Cupcakes and Celebrations! (extremely Picture Heavy!!!)

We have had such a lovely week!  My Beautiful and Talented Daughter Katie, has just had her Sixteenth Birthday.

Most of the week seems to have been taken up with preparations for the big day.  Here are some pictures of Cupcakes and Celebrations!

Springtime Blossom Cupcakes

16 of them!

Waiting to blow out the candles (wearing the balloon hat I made her and made her wear!!!)

Wake a Wish

The rest of the time has been filled with making up orders for Beach Huts and other beads.  (I am still a little in shock at how well they have been received!).

And now to the Creations part of my blog post.  Last week I promised you pictures of some amazing designs that some very talented artists have been making with some of my beads.  They so kindly sent me pictures or blogged about their designs and I have been squealing all over the place at seeing what they have done - soooo exciting!

So, in no particular order, here they are:

Bracelet by Jean of Jean A Wells Handcrafted Artisan Jewellery
Jean of Jean A Wells Handcrafted Artisan Jewellery made this amazing and beautiful bracelet.  There are so many beautiful components in this and I love how Jean has used Sari Silk.  I adore it!  Check out Jean's Blog here.

Elephant Earrings by Therese
Therese of Therese's Treasures asked me to make some of my little elephant charms, but in Coral Red.  They are a present for her sister whose birthday is in March and she is a graduate from the University of Alabama and a huge Alabama football fan.  Just how much fun are these!!! 

Cilla from Tell Your Girlfriends beautiful Earrings

And last but by no means least, feast your eyes on what Cilla Watkins from Tell Your Girlfriends made with my Petal Capped Beads.  I love these so much!
What can I say?  Such beautiful and amazing designs.  I am so happy to see what you have all created using my beads, thank you all so much for sharing with me!
Goodness, this is a long post!  But I hope you enjoyed seeing all the pictures of beautiful daughter, yummy cupcakes and amazing designs and creations.
Hope you have had a wonderful week too.
