Sometimes you see an idea that that is a “must do”.
I get a vast number of newsletters in my e-mail box. Some are really great, some are only a quick glance. One that I really like is Embellishments by Quilting Arts. It’s a great source of ideas for jogging your mind off into other directions as they tend to be very mixed-media.
I saw a photo of Belinda Spiwach’s pencil charms and knew that my writer daughter had to have some earrings. I decided a little wrapped silver wire and a couple of seed beads were in order too. Not too much, the pencils demanded simplicity.
She loved them!
