One of my Christmas presents.


2011/130: Create

And so I did.  My first attempt at making jewelry. I bought the flower charms sometime last year, and added one to my charm bracelet. Then last week I bought the green beads and thought they would go perfectly with the green center of the flowers.
Wrapping the headpins (the piece that goes through the bead) was not easy, and I can’t even tell you how many of them I messed up!! It looks a little sloppy, but I can deal with that 😉

Before I made the earrings, I made this necklace, insprired by Becky’s Necklace. My best friend sent me the little camera charm as a surprise, and I just HAD to make a necklace! The little frame (you can see just a small part of it in the top of the picture) was a bit of a problem. I used to see them at Michaels Arts & Crafts when I had no need for them, but when I needed one, well, there were nowhere to be found! Thankfully Becky had one in stock and sold it to me, and all I needed to do was decide on a picture. I also found headpins with a tiny little heart at the end… couldn’t have been more perfect! I only ruined three of those headpins in the process.

Well shoot. I guess this is the last year (for a while anyway) that my selective dyslexia will work. Which means that, starting next year, I will be counting backwards instead! 😉 
After a crazy week (Sara testing positive for influenza A, influenza B, and strep), and Melissa waking up yesterday and not feeling well (tested negative for flu and strep) and staying home, both girls are back in school. Greg took today off work, and we’re going to see what kind of trouble we can get into.

These earrings were my Birthday present from Greg…. and he gave them to me a couple of weeks early!!
They were made by Rebecca and I fell in love with them the first time I saw them. Check out her other beautiful jewelry on Etsy.
I just love the way she photographs her creations, and I did the same with these earrings, but chose something different to post here. And, after getting a haircut yesterday, I did shorten them bu one link, because they were too long (or my hair is now too short).
