It has been raining and raining out here. I am not complaining though because the moisture is needed. But, I have not been taking many pictures...its been too grey out.

I have been creating though and have some new and exciting listings to show from my Etsy shop Chicki.

I have been experimenting with hammering various metals and have created this pendant out of copper wire.


I have also still been working with polymer clay and have started experimenting with inks, foils and clay. This pendant is the result of this work.


I always love simple and pretty jewellry. These earrings are the result of simple ear wires I created out of sterling silver, fine silver ball headpins and pink swarovski crystals. They are sparkly and pretty.


I have been using brass wire and findings more and more. I love the looks of it. These bohemian earrings have super cool czech glass beads that have been wire wrapped and greatly enhance the filigree chandelier earrings.

Signs of Spring

As you know from previous posts, I love to take photos. I have been taking photos almost every day and would like to share a few with my readers.

These photos represent signs of spring here in Saskatchewan, Canada.
One of the signs for me is the returning of geese.

Also, crocuses come out....these beauties were captured in some pastureland near Saskatoon.


And lastly, robins make their appearance. This lovely bird was hopping around outside my window last night.

What are the signs of spring you wait for?

Etsy Front Page!!!

Finally! One of my treasuries made it to the front page of Etsy! Unfortunately, I was not home to see it when it was on there but some fantastic Etsy friends send me a screenshot of it.


Here is my treasury that was entitled "Running around in circles".


Thanks Etsy and the wonderful artists that have the beautiful items that I chose to feature!

Wordless Wednesday - Unicorn drawing


My daughter drew this unicorn for me last summer.....pretty good for a five year old I think! She loves to be crafty and seems to be following in mommy's footsteps!

The View from here

This is how the countryside has looked here for the past few days....frosty and pretty! When it looks like this outside I don't mind the cold temperatures.
