Which project to do next?

3 different project suggestions

So many ideas, so unorganized. I can't even blame it on "so little time" because I do have time. The issue is to decide which project to do next. They are all so exciting!
So I thought I'd let you decide which of the following you would like me to take on first. Comment below or on facebook and let me know what you think.

The first option (A) is a small wooden crate and some chalk paint from Annie Sloan. I recently took a beginner's class in chalk paint and this is the startkit I bought. 
If you'd like me to play around with this and show you what I can come up with, let me know.

The next option (B) is a jewelry project with blue freshwater- and waxpearls and silver detailing. I also have a cabochon pendant - a technique I've never tried before, so that could be interesting :)

Last, but not least (option C) is a bunch of different plates, cups and candlesticks. If you're curious about what I can make with this, let me know.

Can't wait to see what you're curious about the most.

Joyous easter

Easter card cherubs and butterflies

Today I want to show you an easter card I made. It's very simple in design and when I need to make a batch of them I love to use images like these. Usually one scrapbook sheet has many of these themed images and this specific one had about 20-25 different images so you get a lot for your buck.

I wanted to let the pretty papers show so I focused on the details instead. The design is very simple, just layers and for the image I used a crackeling medium after I assembled it all together. I let it dry for an hour or so and that's it.
