My pretty little pink

It seems like everything is in progress. I have 2 different yarns that are still on the bobbins, in various stages of completion. I am also working on another little crocheted purse, which just needs handles and a lining to be complete now. And of course, the neverending socks of doom are still on the needles, along with a few other semi-abandoned projects.

On the plus side, I did complete a set of hair sticks that I promised to a co-worker months ago, but didn't take a pic. They came out pretty though. I used black hair sticks, black coated wire and a variety of red beads.

I also completed another necklace. Don't laugh, but it's pink. I don't know what it is with me and pink these days. I have been noticing that I have a lot of pink crafting supplies and I am not quite sure why that is, unless I have secretly loved the color pink and have been afraid to admit it to myself. Nah. I don't think that's it.

In any case, here's the necklace:

I rarely make anything for myself. Somehow, it just doesn't seem like as much fun as when I am making things for other people. But I haven't been feeling particularly creative lately, and thought that making myself a present might perk me up. I've had all the materials to make this necklace for some time, in fact, I bought all the beads at the same time, with the intention of using them together, but then, like so many of my fantastic ideas, it took 2 years or so to come to fruition.

In any case, here's the final product:

Also, I took these pics of the studio a few weeks ago, after I put the lights up on the bar.

Pretty awesome, right?

I have been supremely un-crafty this week. I haven't worked on any of my projects. Instead I have been playing Guitar Hero. Yeah, I know, I am a slacker.

But I do still have one more item to share from last week. I call this one "Blossoming".
