ADD and a creative soul

How many of us crafty people have craft ADD?

You know what I mean . . .  a kabillion ongoing projects and different types of crafts you like to do, sometimes simultaneously.

It's ok, we are all friends here - raising my hand, lol.

Recently, I have been on such a jewelry making kick.
I dunno what has gotten into me.  If it doesn't move, I bet I could make jewelry out of it.

This is a pic of necklace I made for my Mom for Christmas.  She doesn't not surf the internet much so I am taking a chance this will still be a surprise.

She wanted something with a longer length and more neutral colors.  I added some pink in there because that is the kind of girl she is. {hey, I get my girliness honest}

Twisting wire like a bead fiend, I also made this lovely.

Seriously, I think I am addicted to rhinestones.
Even addicted as I am, I don't think I could pull off this pendant as an earring (in its prior life) so the earring was repurposed as a pendant.

Switching gears, (because we are talking ADD, right?)  I was making coffee last week during the flurry of holiday activity and as I poured coffee into my cream, a darling heart revealed itself in the cafe bubbles.

No joke!!
Look!  There it is!!

It was a sweet moment, a gentle reminder . . . Love is good.

I hope everyone had a beautiful Thanksgiving week with lots of love and blessings.

OK...did you stage that cup of jo? That is amazing if true!

Heidi, I just love your jewelry, especially the pendant earring...which I might have worn as an earring if you hand not taken it away to create something else with...

Seriously, very beautiful creations sweetie.

Ciao bella,

Oh, and I think I have about five projects going on right now, not including decorating our home for Christmas.

How adorable is that heart right in the middle of your cup of coffee. I guess "good things come in small packages". I bet it put a wonderful smile on your face!

Thanks for sharing. That was too cute.

A heart in your coffee. . . .awwwww. Makes me miss you even more!! Your mama is going to LOVE her lovely necklace! said...

Very pretty jewels, but that heart is extra wonderful! My family laughs at me for always taking photos of odd stuff or little details, but we bloggers sure understand. I think blogging has helped me notice and appreciate all the little things even more.
