my crazy ideas.....

First, if you haven't entered the Jade Cluster Earrings giveaway, click here!

Do you ever get an idea in your head and feel like you have to do it right away? Well, that's me. I'm like that with almost everything....Once I have something in my head it has to be done right then....It's really not a good thing. I guess sometimes, maybe, but most of the time I stress myself and Kaz out because I'm so focused! Wondering what I'm talking about?....Well, as you know Kaz and I are really saving money for our infertility journey. I started thinking of ways that we could have a little extra income to put towards that but also something that we could both do because let's be honest, I can't take on anything else! Well I came up with the idea of making a few necklaces and braclets...I knew it was something I could do but something Kaz could help with also! So I talked and thought about it so much yesterday, as soon as I got home from work I had to make the necklaces! All in one night....Then I created an Etsy shop! I don't have very much up yet but I'd love to know what you think of the few items... I really need to work on what I take on...Well not really what I take on but how soon I choose to move forward:) Are you ever like this? Do you tend to take on more than you can handle or get ideas and want to act on them right away?


Check out my shop and let me know what you think!

Your necklaces are very pretty! I don't like a lot of the jewelry making I've seen out there recently because it all seems so gaudy, but yours look pretty and elegant!

I can identify with having an idea and feeling like you have to get right to it. I do that too. :) Thanks for following my blog! I'm following you too! :)

Jill said...

I'm like that too. I get really excited and gung-ho and then reality sets in and my laziness comes out in FULL FORCE so most of my ideas never get done!

I love what you've made so far! Pearls are always so classy looking!

Candace said...

Jennifer said...

I am also like this! I agree... at times it is just not a good thing! I can be working on something and then get some kind of crazy idea and before I know it... I am working on that! LOL Congrats on the new shop it looks great! :)
