Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Karen Snyder and I've been a crafter for about as long as I can remember. I am a stay-at-home-Mama of two beautiful children with a husband who makes my dreams possible.

This blog is about all sorts of crafting. I am a paper-crafter from early days, a jewelry-maker with an unending obsession for chain maille. I make chain maille purses, many of which will be chronicled in this blog as their future owners await their completion. I love metalsmithing. I am an indifferent beader and don't get me anywhere near seed beads... they scatter, screaming to get away from me. I love to try new things, have a short attention span so if its a long-term project... I'm probably not doing it LOL.

If you have questions, ask. If you have tips, share. Same with suggestions - share! I want this to be a great forum for people to brainstorm and problem-solve with a good attitude. Crabby Apples need not respond, this is a feel-good kind of blog :)

Who Wants to Win These?

Okay, so who would like to win a pair of these Copper Wrapped With Love earrings? This is one of my exclusive designs - the hearts are hand-formed, then wrapped with fine-gauge copper wire and a tiny copper bead is suspended from the middle. Then some basic chain maille at the top to connect them to the ear wires and you've got a fun, goes-with-everything earring! They are preserved with Renaissance Wax once tumbled so that they will stay nice and shiny.

So you say you'd like to win them? GREAT! All you have to do is leave a comment here and tell me:  What are you doing with your Sunday (or Monday for some)? I'm doing laundry and finishing up a few orders today, hoping that they all go as planned so that I can work on some new ideas!
