I had meant to make some earrings for my sister, whose birthday was at the end of September. I've finally made a few pairs, and now I just have to get them wrapped and in the mail. Hopefully some time before Thanksgiving :-)
I've also started to just wire wrap some beads --this is one way some jewelry artists have recommended getting over a slump. Eventually you have enough that they come together as a project. I hope to spend more time beading as we move closer to the holidays.
