I had lunch with a girlfriend today and when I got home, I started thinking about not being able to make the charm dangle yesterday. It really has been bothering me that I gave up so quickly on something I thought I should be able to do. When I got home, I immediately went into the craft room and started tinkering around with jewelry. What I discovered is this. I can make a charm dangle, as long as I use existing jewelry to begin with. I took apart a bracelet and used the clasp, then started attaching things to it. I’m not sure if it’s what my viewer was looking for, but I’m proud to say that I finished the project and it doesn’t look half bad.
I was so inspired, I thought I’d get serious and make something else, so I made a bunch more bookmarks and started on a Christmas ornament video for tomorrow. I painted a styrofoam ball and had to wait for the paint to dry before proceeding. It took forever to dry, and in the meantime, I lost the will to continue. It gives me a good starting point for tomorrow. I’m also going to work on a bunch of cards. I need to get serious about Christmas cards, as people expect me to make them, and I’m not really focused on it yet. I think I’ll get focused mid-January…Is that too late?
