Custom Order

This is the most fun part of my job is when someone comes to me with a special custom order. This custom order actually was a duplicate of a custom order that I created for a web tv show, called The Strangers. If you haven’t seen this show yet, you really should, its amazing! I love this design so much. I think out of all of the trees I’ve made, theses are my favorite. 164289_513254712045729_1069717188_n 247122_513253665379167_432413541_n 947031_513254465379087_1902960453_n

I hope to get a few more of theses made up and get them on my facebook page soon!

Busy busy

I have been so busy for the past two weeks, I’ve been unable to publish my blog post. But as soon as things start to slow down I end up sick again. Blah I am so ready for summertime. But anyways on to the real reason your here. 🙂

So I  have been cleaning my craft room like crazy lately (and this time it actually looks like I’ve done something) trying to set the room up into something that works for me. I have been having trouble coming up with ideas on how to organize everything and where to put it so that I can quickly and easily get to it. I hate not being able to find things when I need them. Which would make you think I would be organized, but ohhhhh how wrong you are. I am super messy, and so unorganized its not even funny. You can ask anyone this, they will wholeheartedly agree. hehe

I’ve been trying to come up with something that I can store all my beads in as well as a place to store the tackle box I got to carry things back and forth to a show. (hehe Don’t judge me, the tackle box was $20 cheaper then the same thing that was labeled “jewelry storage”) Well my husband came up with a great idea, an so far it is working out perfectly! He suggested that I get one of those great big tool boxes on wheels. After I thought about it, that’s what I did! I still don’t have it organized, but as you can see from the pictures below it is working out great. And the best part, for all 3 pieces, 8 drawers in total cost me $140 before taxes! A big thank you to Lowes, and Taskforce for having and making just what I wanted and needed. ♥

This drawer makes me the most excited, being able to see all of my seed beads, and have them sorted into sizes! LOVE IT! Now I just need to get more tubes and get rid of the bags of beads I have, and I’ll be all set!
Best part is I don’t have to carry all of them with me when I go to a show, I can just pick what colors I’d like to bring and off I go! IMG_2497

All of my tools fit nicely up in the top part of the tool box, no more randomly leaving them laying on my desk.  (For now anyways)

As you can see it is still a little messy, but its well on its way to being organized. And now even with it being messy like that I know where all of my beads are. Whenever I buy something new I place it in the very bottom draw before organizing them into the proper draw. Now if only I can get the rest of my craft room to function as well I’d be happy.

But well enough of my ramblings about a toolbox. I’ll post the links so you can check out the toolboxes out for yourself if you’d like.
I can’t believe I just made a whole blog about a toolbox, but what can I say. I really really love it!
How do you get organized?

This is what I’ve been working on the past two weeks. 🙂 All of these items will be up for sale on my Facebook page within the next day or two. 🙂

Bracelets, bracelets, bracelets

I hope you are having a good week so far! I would be if it weren’t for the cold weather and snow lingering around. On Thursday last week, we got 7-8 inches of snow in 4 hours it was insane. I was not happy, but I was out numbered in my house hold as you can see, my husband and dog loved it.

I am so ready for warm weather so I can work on my jewelry out  on my gazebo. Its the  perfect place to get inspiration when I am stuck. sigh hopefully I can use it soon. But never mind about that, lets get onto the real reason you’re reading this blog. Jewelry! Or more specifically bracelets!

Last week I posted a work in progress, it was a bracelet using tila beads and seed beads. I love it before I finished it, but now that its done I love it even more!

Like I said last week, this was my first time using tila beads, but it will NOT be the last! I love them! If I didn’t already have a million other ideas going on in my head right now, I’d be making another one of these bracelets in a different color.  The good thing about being crafty is that you think of new ideas all then time, the bad thing about being crafty is if you are working on another project and you have an idea it is extremely hard not to stop one project and start another, at least it is for me.

Well I said last week you might get an early post this week, but I didn’t have time to finish it. So I am giving you two posts today! Stay tuned for my next blog update about custom orders! 🙂

About me…

First off I’d like to say welcome to my blog! Since this is the first entry I figured I should tell you a little about myself. Well here goes nothing!

My name is Mary Lady, I am 24 years old, and I live with my husband Daniel, and our dog Charlie.

549734_10151158627046221_1467376315_n485792_10150944345191221_725677202_n

Charlie isn’t spoiled at all is he? hehe We live in a cute house out in the country in a small town located in Tennessee. How far in the country you ask… I have cows out my kitchen window (no joke). But I really do love it out here, its beautiful and all I have to do is step out my front door and see the mountains. But enough about where I live. On to why I created this blog.

I’m the owner of Mary’s Little Creations. I make handmade jewelry, which is something that has always been a passion of mine. My goal is to update this blog weekly, including both informational posts and pictures of the pieces I’m currently working on.

I’d love to hear from you! If you have an questions, comments, ideas, or suggestions of items you’d like to see please feel free to comment below, or email me at Maryslittlecreations@ymail.com.

If you’d like to see more of my jewelry or the prices for which I sell them at, please check out My Facebook as well as my still-in-development webpage.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Mary
