Instead of being a good housewife and cleaning the house and doing the laundry,
I have allowed myself to be distracted by these:
In my defense, they needed organizing. NEEDED it, I tell you.
I bought this old printer's drawer to use as a display. It still needs some work, I just haven't decided if I want to paint it or not yet.
So instead of letting it just take up space, I decided to make it useful.
I had a total aha! moment. I can't believe I hadn't thought before to lay all my stones out and have a good look at them all together.
I love and remember every precious stone. Pulling each one out and putting it in it's space was like seeing an old friend.
And then I realize a lot of these old friends are just begging to be Autumn hued designs.
I've always been one to be influenced by the season, and the colors associated with it.
Reds, oranges, yellows...
Does anyone else talk to their stones?
"Ok, who wants to go first? What do you want to be?...."
Oh, and P.S. Clearly I need more stones....
