Fortunately there is "Castle" once a week to cheer me up. Of course, I am waiting for his proposal to Becket.
I started with a "funky jewelry project". Funky jewelry and crafts, really tickles creativity, makes you to look at your stash from a different point of view.
I had that vintage lace, silk and pearls for ages laying in a box. The small mirrors were part of my miniature's stash.
I made also, years ago, a bunch of paper beads, and I put them in a box waiting for inspiration.
Finally I've got it! And the result is: 40 pair of earrings finished and packed to Germany.
The work in progress: A cuff of vintage lace, bracelets and earrings of silicon tube and paper beads.
Would be challenging, that's for sure. So, as a two "end of the year resolution" I will: 1st) Fight against procrastination, and get everything ready before Christmas. 2nd) Keep blogging.
