Not a bowl of cherries.

Well as I sort of suspected - my saturday goal of being "the most successful crafting weekend ever" didn't exactly come true. I guess the weekend isn't technically over yet, but unless something magical happens in the next 24 hours I will have to settle for "a somewhat successful crafty weekend" (which, by the way, is still fabulous). I did manage to whip up some goodies to help stock my craft show table in march - just take a peek:

OoO! A wonderful selection of spring-tastic flower earrings! Combining my amazing abilities to buy cute vintage cabochons and white gold plated stud earring posts and then epoxy them together! Woo hoo! Now all I need to do is come up with a really aesthetically pleasing cards to sell them on and I'll be set! Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

In other crafty news, I may have been a wee bit overzealous with my felt cutting and embroidery resulting in one very sore left wrist:

Boo. Looks like that brace I bought during the preparation for my last craft show is getting put to use again! Oh dear. I'm hoping the brace will give my poor tendons a little r&r so I can go back into full force crafting! Or here's hoping has your weekend been so far?


  1. I know exactly how you feel. Everytime I try to make big crafty plans and be super productive it never happens. It's okay though. We'll get caught up. :) I have the same brace for when my wrist gets sore from over crafting!

    Good luck with the rest of your weekend. I love, love, love the earrings!

  2. Sounds like you have been busy. Your Dad and I went to the art gallery and saw the new placement of you buttons and mirrors on the desk where the till is. I am sure that is a better display site than on a table in the back room. I also said to your Dad to look where they were placed and had to brag that my daughter made them. The clerk said "Oh, she was in yesterday." I am still very proud of you. Love Mom

  3. Oh lordy- if only I was able to remind myself before a craftathon (especially a lot of paper cutting) that my hands can only do so much in one day... I've rendered my hands immobile for like 24 hours before hahaha.
    I LOVE the earrings!
