crazy cat lady jewelry
Last night i bought a beaded-jewelry-making kit. Perhaps this was not such a good idea, perhaps it was. Too soon to tell. All i know is that i have been obsessively-compulsively making earrings and the like ever since (read, last night and all afternoon). Ok, so maybe that is not so very long, but i have made a necklace (pictured), anklet, bracelet, and eight pairs of earrings. The trick seems to be in the pliers. i bought a new pair today and they are working like a charm. Did i mention that i forgot to eat? (don't worry, J, i will eat some pizza as soon as i finish this)
The big question is, "What, dear Villain, are you going to do with all of these earrings?" Maybe i will keep a few, the answer goes; the rest will probably end up as holiday gifts. Early start, i guess.
The photo does not really do them justice, i think. They are much more luminous. Why did i choose to shoot them on my dirty old windowsill? i suppose i thought it added character. Oh well. Now, i am completely open to the fact that these might all be earrings that only the crazy cat lady will wear and that i am suffering from the prevalent and troublesome disorder known as Temporary and Acute Craft Blindness. Am i turning into a lame Joann's-style pseudocraft whore??? Or do they actually look cute? i think i need some pizza. and maybe some gin.

Sarah - you are a crafting star! I am impressed with your amazing work. You should check out this blog http://craftconspiracy.blogspot.com/ I m et this girl the day before I left Mpls and she added me to her blog, but I think you should become part of the conspiracy...I think they have a monthly craft night where they do something different each month. The girl I know is Anna, so if you're interested, drop her a message.
