Should it have happened, probably not.
Do I have time for it, most defiantly not!
And yet, here I am confessing to you all of you that I have fallen in love with......., yet another craft. I know, I know I can hear the gasps from here.
I try to be pretty good and not really add to my already overflowing plate but there are times that things just look so fun and interesting. I just can't help it.
Also, I may have crafting ADD. I get bored easily.
That's why I like to make small crocheted items. And why I choose to make a colorful ripple afghan instead of a solid color afghan. I need the change.
It all started simply enough. I bought some of the little flowers from pick your plum. You know the ones I used to embellish the jumbo paperclip bookmarks. Well I had a bunch of them left over and I didn't know what to do with them.
Enter Whoopdwhoop (shameless plug: go enter the whoopdwhoop giveaway) I thought what a great way to
So I made some earrings. Easy peasy little things.
And some hair pins.
All pretty harmless. I didn't buy anything extra to make these. I had it all on hand. So it was a good thing, right? I was stash busting.
Then I had a few flowers that were to big to put on earrings or hairpins. What was I going to do with those?
I HAD to use them.
And that's when it happened, these would make a great necklace, I thought.
So....... I bought all the things I would need to make a necklace. Then I thought a little charm would go so pretty with it so I got some charms. Here's what I ended up with.
Bought new cabochons, made more necklaces.
And then some ring blanks. (hanging my head in shame)
With more cabochons left waiting. They'll get their turn soon.
They are all very easy compared to what some of the rest of you do. You know who you are. I have been having a little to much fun with it. I even made something out of beads.
Something that started out harmlessly has turned into a bit of a love affair. And I for one am pleased as punch about it. Now I have to go do some crocheting.
Thanks for stoppin' by and hangin' out.
