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?
