I think I’m finally coming out of my funk. I have some things half done and am feeling a crafting frenzy coming on.
I did manage to make these earrings on Sunday. They are made out of 36g brass metal. Leftover pieces from making new metal birds. I cut out the shape I liked, pressed lines into the metal and then heated over a flame to make them rustic. I like how they turned out and am amazed that I didn’t burn myself as I am very prone to burn accidents.
I also got some new jewelry, not made by me. The earrings are from jeweledmonkey. I bought these and these from there too, courtesy of my wonderful mommy. The pretty bird necklace is from a local shop. They make me feel a bit more fancy. Something I feel I have been lacking over the last year.
And today, I went hunting for used jars (school science project) and found this old typewriter for $3!!! The kids played with it for HOURS!! The tape still works a teeny bit and I’ve found more on line. This could be very helpful for my little guy in learning the rest of those tricky alphabet letters. Q,W,V,M,N, D & P can be so confusing!
