Halloween Jewelry Collection

Alexa's @swelldesigner's Halloween jewelry selection

Here’s a peek at some of my orange/black/Halloween jewelry photographed by my friend Heather Mann. I have quite a selection of fun rings, necklaces, and earrings! I always look forward to October so I can wear it. It is a bit odd to be wearing orange and black throughout the year or you get dubbed wearing “Halloween colors”. Sometimes I wish Halloween could be all year long, don’t you. The fun, whimsical mood makes me happy and I wish it could last.

Maybe one of these days, I’ll share my whole collection! I plan on having a tutorial of the ribbon rosette necklace. It turned out super cute!

What jewelry do you break out for the Halloween season?

Until next time Swellions!


Drumroll please…my new FontCraft site has arrived!

So last week, I mentioned that I had a project going on that I couldn’t talk about. Well, I’m spilling the beans on it this week, cause I’ve loaded it up with all kinds of cool content and I couldn’t wait any longer to share it with you!

The site is called FontCrafts and was inspired by my love of all things typography! Honestly, I have been wanting to find my own niche for a while and coming up brand new content all the time for this blog has been a challenge for me. I wanted to hone in on the specific topic of fonts in crafting cause it really is who I am (graphic designer by day, crafter by night). It’s only natural I be the one to take this topic on, considering I’m seeing fonts in crafting EVERYWHERE and I mean EVERYWHERE these days!

So what will you find a this new site? Lots of crafts all devoted to fonts all over the web plus some exclusive projects. There’s also lots of inspiration! Everything from videos to quote art to how-to articles and cool stuff you can buy and get inspired by. I wanted this to be a place where you can both hang out and learn at the same time. Fonts are being used in so many cool ways and I want to compile the ideas and bring them to you!

Here’s just a few of the cool posts!

Let me know what you think!!! I’m still will probably be making a few tweaks here are there, but for the most part, this is the style I was going for…modern and cool!! And please tell your friends (Tweet, Facebook, or e-mali them). I would be so grateful! Also, become a Fan on the FontCrafts Facebook page or follow FontCrafts on Twitter!

And a special Shoutout goes to Heather of Dollar Store Crafts and Decor Hacks who encouraged me to get rollin’ on this. She’s so great at inspiring you to be more!

Until next time Swellions!
