Join Me and Finish It UP!

A quick look around the house showed me how many incomplete projects were lying around. I had started them with a vengeance! I was on fire! Unstoppable! And then somewhere along the way, I became…much more stoppable.

So. Unfinished projects. Let’s knock them out.

 

I’m starting the Finish It UP (Unfinished Project) campaign in order to get myself back on track and clean some of these projects off my plate. Won’t you join me? Simply choose one project a month and complete it. It can be anything that you started and walked away from. You can choose in advance what project you’ll finish up, or you can pick something at random at the beginning of each month. I’m going to focus on it for six months, and if things go well, hopefully I’ll keep it going longer.

Please join me! What do you need to finish up? Is it a writing project, art, quilting, sewing, music, or something else? I need to finish up some quilts I started, a turquoise necklace that broke midway, and a bench that I want to upholster and paint, among other things. Completing something feels so good, and it also declutters our homes. Let’s do this thing!

 

Something Lovely. A Handmade Beaded Bracelet.

Something was missing. I wanted something lovely and wonderful in my day. So I went to my stash and pulled out some beads that I had previously purchased. They glistened in the sunlight. They filled me with whimsy.

I took a few beads, strung them on a t-pin, and then bent the top into loops until I had a bunch of dangles. Then I added two or sometimes three onto a chain link.

And I have a finished bracelet. I’m thinking of turning it into a necklace instead because the sparkles and chiming get a bit distracting on my wrist, but it’s still a wonderful thing of joy. šŸ™‚

Do you do jewelry at all? Do you have any pictures to show?
