My blog and I just cannot come to terms lately!  
I seem to have great intentions, but we all know what road we are on with that one. 

Anyway, I hope to figure out a way to become motivated to blog more regularly, 
but until then I hope you can sleep without thinking about it. he he

That necklace (previous post) has a story - and I am finally going to tell it!

It's some junk jewelry I made.

I've been seeing it - just as you have - everywhere on the web, etsy, and cute boutiques.

I do as all you crafty people do when you see something like that: "oh, I can totally make that!!"
Well, guess what?  
I finally followed through! 
(see, my intentions sometimes DO come through!)

I had a couple of non-real, short pearl necklaces. 
Mind you, I'm not a pearl girl, but I had bought one to wear in a wedding and the other was from my granny's jewelry stash.

I just clasped them end to end.  
Then to hide the clasp, I made a white crochet flower and shabbied it up with some tulle and a pearl button.
I absolutely love how it turned out!
(Alex has even worn it - so it passed the teenager test!) 

I have a bag full of jewelry - broken, old and tossed aside - that my friend's mom gave me and I plan to put more of these together! 

What crafty projects are you working on?  
I'd love to see! :)
