Welcome to my blog! When I started this blog it was all about wire crochet jewelry. I fell in love with the first piece I saw and I had to learn how. I was "hooked"!

Just Catching Up...

Gee, it's been a long time since I posted anything!  Just thought I'd catch up a little bit on what's been going on with me.

In May I started working full time again.  I'm working at a brand new lumber yard and hardware store in my small home town.  It belongs to my daughter's best friend and her husband, so they're like my kids!  It's been fun getting in on the ground floor of a new business and I'm enjoying being out and seeing people again.

I haven't really gotten into the groove of working and crafting yet, so the few things I've made lately have been pretty quick and easy. 

I was always grabbing a grocery sack on the way out the door to carry my stuff in so one weekend I crocheted a market bag.  It's a lot more cheerful to carry than a plastic sack!

Of course, I had to make myself a "hardware" bracelet if I was working in a hardware store!  I just connected miscellaneous washers and other hardware items with jump rings.  I made it long and wrap it around three times.  It's fun and dangly.

I saw something similar to the yarn wrap bracelet on Pinterest.  (Yes, I've jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon!  I fought it for awhile thinking it would just be another time sucker, and it is, but I 'm addicted!  I keep pinning stuff in hopes that I'll get to it "someday".)  Anyway, this is a cord knitted with the spool knitter.  I found these sparkly little rhinestone spacers at Wal-Mart.  My plan is to make them in different colors.  The spacers just slide on so they can be moved from one color to the other.  I think they'll be cute with slouchy, comfy sweaters this winter.  

Well, that's about it for me.  Hope you're doing well!

Let's plant grass seeds in all our shoes & paint yellow inside our hats so even when it's cold and dark we will always feel like we are walking barefoot in the sunshine!
