I know, I know…it’s a little early to be talking about the Fall craft fairs, but I’m already getting excited about them. (They’re kind of big deal here in the Midwest.)
Mom makes jewelry all year long and then drags me to the craft fairs with her to keep her company and watch the table when she needs to get up and walk around for a bit. (Dad almost always stops by at some point, if nothing else but to bring us lunch.)
It gives us an opportunity to hang out together, just the two of us. This year, I’ve decided to make some jewelry of my own to sell. Usually I just make things for me only. I’m excited to see how things go.
Here’s the set I’ve made for this year. I know some people would not find working with tiny beads and wires relaxed but this is just one of the ways I can kind of ‘unwind’. When I’m focused on making something I really can’t think about anything else. I love putting together cool pieces, picking out beads that look just right together and then making something that’s a little funky, and definitely “one-of-a-kind” . It’s so much fun!!!
Keep any eye out for me this Fall if you’re at a craft fair on the South-side of Indy, I’ll probably be there. ♥
