Crafty Goals

8 Nov

So remember when I went to the epic bead store? Well I finally made a couple of pieces with the beads I scored.

These blue beads were so gorgeous, I didn’t even need to add anything to them. I simply put them on t-pins and done! I love these! They are so unique and pretty!

These earrings are a combination of two kinds of beads I got at the OC Bead Store. I loved both of these beads, but it took a bit of creativity before I got them together.

That’s all the wire I messed up before I got to the finished product. Opps! 😉 Like I said in my earlier post, I’m an amateur, so I definitely play around with things before my creative “eye” decides that I got it right.

My next crafty goal is to learn how to crochet. I actually used to do the very basics of crocheting as a kid because my babysitter crocheted and she taught me how to crochet (in other words, make one long chain ;-)). Now that I’m a big girl, I want to learn how to make actual crocheted items. Check out these cute things I want to make:

Crochet Necklace


A crochet necklace?! Are you kidding me? This is SO cute!

Leg Warmers


Multi-colored leg warmers? Hells yeah! So 8O’s and so awesome!

Crochet Earrings


Crochet earrings – this is not your grandma’s crocheting, people! 🙂

Crochet Wrap


This crochet wrap is so cute and, obviously, so versatile!

Crochet Slippers


And, finally, the crochet slippers. These are totally killer!


How do you indulge your creative side? (Everyone has one, some people just have to work harder to find it. ;-))
