overwhelmed

yeah that's what I feel like lately.

I've been overwhelmed by pinterest. I assume most of you know that site, and I love it. I am a very organized person I love I can use pinterest for inspiration and sort through my pins, but OMG I have so many ideas, things I would like to try out and not enough time or money. And then I get disciraged, you know?

Well anyway lately I been sewing a bit, I love sewing, just haven't done it for years. Further more I have spend my energy on loosing weight, and so far so good. Spring has arrived and that means time for cleaning and getting the house in shape after a cold winter. But I am beginning to feel the need to bead LOL

But I have made some jewelry though, it's not all bad LOL, I also have a lot I haven't had a chance to take a picture of yet. Here are some earrings, it has quickly become my favorite pair. My eyes and glasses are the same color as the bicones I've used.


 These my son made for me, well he put on the beads and I made the wrapping, the chose the hoops and I adore this pair, plus they are really fun and bright to look at, right?

I needed a neutral pair of earrings and I had some "scrap" beads lefter over so these were the result.

 I love knotting. It is so relaxing and fun. These tiny 4mm round beads are so beautiful, but the where a little irregular, so not great in a beaded piece, but then I saw I have some silk thread and here it is. I can be a necklace, double necklace or a bracelet like in the picture.

A friend of mine, her mom needed a long black necklace with a loop in the middle so she would attach different pendants to it. She really likes horn, wood and nuts, this is made from horn and a silver bead. the pendant is a beautiful leaf shaped piece of coconut

his was a quick piece made from some leather scraps, just a everyday piece, I love gray and pink together.

 Here's my son doing some doodling, I have been doing some for some cards for the creative pay it forward challenge, and he likes it so much that one day I found him doodling around on a piece of paper. He is good right?

 Like I said I had been sewing a little lately, and here's a spring jacket for my son. He choose that fabric, he is 6 years old and he knows what he wants I'll tell ya. His favorite color is red as you can tell, and this star pattern is just awesome, he wears this jacket with pride, "my mom made this" he tells everyone, I get really shy when he does it, but I love him for it. He is so easy to please. And very grateful. Sometimes he asks me to make stuff for him, he is not always very realistic though LOL, has had a lot of faith in my creative abilities, but I tell ya, I do have limitations. ;)
