For the love of all things good and green!!!

OK, remember how I stated before that I'm a Gemini and how my interests varied?  Well let me give you a good example.  Today I had a cup of coffee, started a bracelet, looked for pastry bags on Amazon, opened the cake book to the recipe I wanted and started to clean the bathroom and started this post and  this was just this morning.  You see what I mean?  I am a productive procrastinator.  Some might say A.D.D. but I call it procrastination.  Active though it may be, nothing fully gets done.  Oh and I'm sewing a doll, did I mention that?
My better half says that when I focus I really get things done, but I beg to differ.  I don't know what focus is anymore, I used to be able to focus, now I focus on everything.  That's not focus.  I'm trying to make French macaroons and my piping skills lack something to be desired.  I haven't painted anything in a while.  I digress.  What were we talking about?  Oh yes procrastination.  I don't know if there is a pill to cure all but I do know that a lot of little things get done.  Laundry, some, baking, some, cleaning, some.  And then I pile everything into my office/craft room/laundry room and pray that someone somewhere hears my prayer for a professional organizer.  I've asked that as a present for my birthday every year and I don't think anyone takes me seriously.  Maybe in the new house...did I mention we were looking for a house?

Shoot me.

What have I started...?

So I've been making my own jewelry for quite some time now, I'd say about 12 years. 
Since starting my new job 3 years ago I've often been asked "where'd you get that?" or "what a great necklace, you always have such nice jewelry".  It was until much later did I actually start telling people that I made it.  Not sure why I didn't in the first place, but there you have it I MADE IT!  I suppose that's some sort of affirmation, the caps thing.  Anyway, I am starting a little hobby business now and it's fun to see people get excited about it.  When I bring in a new piece all the ladies gather at my desk to see what it looks like.  I like things that are a bit more bold, and some things that pay tribute to a time gone by, but mostly I just want to feel pretty.

This one I call the Disco Ball Necklace I make them in different colors.

This I call the June Cleaver...for obvious reasons

Disco in Clear, Black and Silver

I  made this out of desperation, needed something that would go with everything.  All monochromatic clear and milky beads.
