Last month I got some supplies when I went looking for a soft cord to finish this no clasp necklace.
I have a little affection for umbrellas, so when I saw brass Vintaj umbrellas and toadstools, I had to buy them.
The owl earrings are going to become charms or rings, haven't decided on those yet.
The coral, blue, and brass beads were so pretty I couldn't leave them on the rack. Sparkling round buckles, little birds, and assorted chains jumped into my basket and came home with the others.
We're all such good friends, my supplies, they have ideas of their own and since most have been packed up for moving (since last summer) I decided to look for some new to me items.
I will get the necklace finished this week or next at the latest. I used to always push myself to finish what I started, but with things changing at home and so many things to deal with, I have let things slide.
Sitting on my desk is a present for a blogger, I have not been able to decide how to fix and complete it and this has gone on for more than a year. The other parts of the gift are ready to go, so maybe I should bite the bullet and send it on.
Tomorrow I am packing up presents for two little ones a 4 year old and 2 year old siblings. They don't have a birthday, I just feel like sending them something- teddy bears, activity books, crayons, pencils, etc. Lastly, a birthday card was finally purchased and will be on its way, too.
I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but a decision on moving is still in flux, most of my belongings are packed or donated, and sooner or later I have to either stay or go. I'll let you know which it is.
I know what I want to do, it's the next step that's the hardest. Do you close your eyes and jump or stretch out the decision making?
P.S. The necklace is finished and shown here and was included at Jewelry Making Journal.
