Secret Sister Pendant Day 29 of 31 Days of Halloween

It’s my 7 Year Anniversary!!! It’s been wonderful…and has gone by so fast. I’m thinking we may need to watch our wedding video with the kidlings later. It’s pretty awesome.

A few posts ago, I shared a Beatrix the Witch card from Simply Betty Stamps. I mentioned it was for my Secret Sister in a gift exchange. Today I am going to show you the gift I made her.

I made this pendant by using a fancy Halloween corner stamp from Inkadinkado, and pressing it into translucent clay by Sculpy. After baking, I colored it with Alcohol Inks.

I added a cool star and some pretty beads, and then created the necklace. See the spider in the upper middle of the pendant?

I like how it came out. It’s definitely an unusual piece…but I prefer that, of course! Happily, my Secret Sister loved it! These are so much fun to make, I really encourage you to give these clay pendants a go.

I am off to celebrate my Anniversary now! I promised a couple of pics…here they are. Then and now.

I miss those trumpeters…they should be following me where ever I go! ;)

This (above) is one of my favorite pictures from the entire day.


This was just a couple of weeks ago. This is where we got married….the same spot as in the first picture. We had not been back there since our wedding day…we were so happy to return.
