What I've Been Doing

I think I have craft ADD.  I start a project, then start another one and before I know it, I have a whole bucket full of unfinished projects.  I started my Kalmbach Publishing necklace.   I'm not loving it, so it will sit on the table until I figure out how to fine tune it.  In the meantime, here is the Soup I was sent to work with.

We finished the Shop Hop and I won a basket from Beads of Paradise.  We are going to pick it up this weekend.  I'm super excited and can't wait to see what I won.  These are the treasures I picked up during the final days of the Shop Hop.

 Thankfully, I have finished a few of the things I've started.  I made two pairs of earrings for a birthday gift.  Yes, I made them the day of and finished them in time.  My bf helped with one pair as the beautiful glass beads were being stubborn.

Of course, I made a scarf to donate, and I misplaced it.  I was almost done too.  Hopefully it will turn up.

Long Time No Post

Hi!  So sorry for dropping off the planet for a while.  I've been going through some stuff and have no energy when I get home from work.  I have made a few pieces, and I hope to upload the photos soon.  I am also working on a website to finally display my work for sale.  It is going very slowly as my in home graphics artist has been very busy at work.

Right now, I am making my first Kumihimo necklace with beads.  In my attempt to destash, I picked some super small beads.  Although I am loving the results, it is taking a very long time, causing me to be quite cranky.  I can't wait to finish the necklace and post my first finished Kumi piece. 

If I make significant progress on the Kumi necklace, I will make a pair of earrings to post soon.

Thanks for not giving up on me.

Ooh, I can't wait to start working on my pay it forward gifts. :)
