Getting Closer....

I know I've blogged about my procrastination before and, well, nothing's changed. I gave myself a 7 weeks to complete nearly 600 hair clips.

Well, I found other things to create instead and shop on-line. I love shopping on-line. I recently bought this: .

Oops, a little off topic there - what do you expect, I'm writing and showing all of you fine people out there in Blogger land what I'm NOT doing! LOL!

I have made about 300 or so clips at this point. Maybe tomorrow I'll get a few more completed - wish me luck!

What are you putting off?

Favorite Sayings

I have several 'favorite' sayings:

- Sometimes you're the statue. Sometimes you're the pigeon.

- When opportunity knocks, don't knock it.

- Where there's a will, I want to be in it.

- Inch by inch is a cinch, but by the yard, it's hard.

- Piece of sh*t. (Saying that one just makes me feel better sometimes, especially when I've been the statue!)

- What comes around, goes around.

- Sometimes it's just best to cut your losses.

These are a few that I like the best (and that come to mind.)

What are your favorite sayings?

Making A Dull Bead Shine

I frequent the Etsy forums and one night, a poster, DesignsByLucinda asked for six takers of 1 (each) of a plain, 1" bead. It's matte, marble. The idea is to see what six different people can do with the bead, providing it's the focal point. The whole scenario will be blogged about by

It was referred to as a "Bow Wow" bead. I had to ask what "Bow Wow" meant. Apparently, it's a bead that does not stimulate the owner in creating with it.

This is what I created with it (please note the matching earrings):

I would consider myself a novice jewelry maker, but am quickly becoming hooked!

What's got you 'hooked'?
