Some are new and some are not. If a pair of trifles sell and I still have more beads I make more.
It seems that lately the only thing I've managed to get out consistently every week are trifle earrings.
Have I told you when I make these?
About once a week I make a bunch of head pins and ear wires, and dump them into my bead box.
In the evenings on the weekends we have family time. Usually this is us watching a movie, or the girls and husband play video games. Lately it has been us watching DVD's of Little House on the Prairie.
And I just can't sit there doing nothing. I enjoy being with my family, and us all talking back and forth about this or that....but my hands want to be busy.
So I make trifle earrings. I cart my bead boxes, (Yes, I said boxes...four of them!) my round nose pliers and wire cutters into the living room and make earrings.
Now that I've gotten started on the reasons I make trifle earrings, I realize that several purposes are met here.
I think I need a list. ;)
1. Making trifles keep my hands busy.
2. Mixing of colors doesn't come naturally to me. I am exploring the mixture of color and shape with each pair of trifles I make.
3. I have a bead addiction.
4. I love having several pairs of everyday earrings to choose from. I fool myself into thinking I am put together just because I threw on a pretty pair of earrings! :)
But, back to number 3. I have a dozen new packs of beads looking at me right now just waiting to be turned into earrings! Gotta pay for that addiction....
Have a faboo day everyone!
