Think back to January 2009...it 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)
