A friend invited me to her house for tree trimming party and ornament exchange. Being a crafty person, I think it’s a little silly to go and buy one when I can make one. However, being a crafty person near the Christmas/Yuletide present season, I am starting to feel the pressure of trying to get everything done in time. Ergo, simple, but pretty. (may also double as a cat toy and I’m okay with that)
Earlier this summer, for my Shire’s summer event, I went Viking!. (Because I could) However, Viking! brooches are a little out of my price range at the moment. What is a Viking! woman to do?
The pins, super glue, and pendants I bought at Micheal’s. The pendants come brooches were only $.99.
I may or may not have bought them out, as they came in both the gold above, and silver.
There was also squealing. Maybe.
So. Remember – thriftiness can lead to genius.
Also known as I was working on a project and got distracted making something I needed for said project.
I have this HUGE box of jewelry making stuff my G’ma gave me for Christmas a few years ago, and, well, . . . . 2 hours later, I have a plethora of stitch markers. Some of which could double as earrings, actually. I am rather pleased with myself.
