This and That!

Facet1 I started off with really good intentions tonight ... the plan was to clear my desk ... tidy away all the debris that has accumulated and generally  have a good sort out!

I have a little pot ... that I throw stuff in ... you know the stuff ... the little bits and bobs you get out and don't use then cannot be arsed to put away again properly. The little pieces of card that you have cut away from a bigger piece of card ... but it is inked and stamped and that little voice in your head says ... 'NO! DON'T WASTE THAT' ... oh yes people ... my little voice shouts.

Anyways ... the little pot was overflowing so ... there I was going through said  bits and bobs and the little voice is still screaming at me NOT to put stuff in the bin ... so I kind of convinced myself ... that using them was kind of tidying ... BIG mistake ... HUGE!

I have now made about five necklaces ... Card1301and my desk is more untidy than it was when I started! The necklace up top used about a 2" square scrap of inked and stamped card ... add to that the clock stamp I had to get out ... the facet was already in the pot ... but the jump ring was n't ... and the Idea-ology spinner and sprocket ... Okay Okay ... I had to get them out too ... Hey-Ho ... maybe I will try again tomorrow!

The card is from my Take Three Masterclass ... it was n't in the pot either ... just thought I would share :0)

Laters!

I have a bag for just such purposes of leftover project pieces or scraps from them. I do try to look there first to see if I can use something old before making something new. Cool necklace!

But look what came out at the end of it. Job done in my opinion. Just like having kids - loads of effort and then loads of mess at the end of it that just carries on for YEARS! Might as well just give in and keep playing ;)

Big endings start from small pots Linda !!!

Just beautiful. I love "timeless" pieces created from watch parts. I've never attempted it. Does look difficult.
