Think back to January has been a while.  I'm having trouble remembering where I lived back then.  I think it was here in Virginia, but back in my townhouse...the one with the giant mortgage that I'll never get rid of!  haaaaaaaaa  Anyway, that townhouse also happened to have a huge basement where I could spread out all my wire and beads and paper and goods.  Eventually I'll move back up there, but I guess this time I'll have to give Curt half the room.  I guess I'll manage

Back in 2009, I posted about the Daring Squiggle necklace project that was my very first published piece.  I was beyond thrilled at the time...and now I get to revisit that good feeling with a new eBook that Interweave just published that features 10 of these 5-minute jewelry projects.

I actually have the necklace hanging in my kitchen as part of my decor because it has a lot of positive energy and that's always a good thing.  

A quick flip through the pages of this little eBook reminded me that it's not about all that fancy and ornateness all the time...sometimes the perfect piece is just a bend of wire from being a perfect accoutrement to an otherwise uneventful day.

I wish I had the energy to go bend some wire.  Maybe this weekend will be a big craft-time...tonight I just want to hold my aching head, lay on the couch and listen to the rain.  (I'm sure I'll be up in a few minutes doing something, but it's nice to imagine just laying and listening to rain...haaaaaaaaa)
