Where I Fess Up

I have a confession to make. I used to take a lot of time on these posts. I'd come up with a theme, search through our team's shops to find things that fit the theme...

But lately, I've started cheating. Instead of coming up with a theme, I just peruse the "Show Your Handmade Creations" thread on the team discussion thread, and pick a few items that catch my eye. (Or, I find a shop that is new to me, and I peruse the shop to find something to highlight.) I've been doing this for several months now.

Whew. It feels good to get that off my chest.

So, this month, here's what I found...

SALE Crystal & Pearl Bracelet

Topaz Bracelet - Old Hollywood Vintage Glass Jewels Bracelet - Estate Jewelry - Chunky Bracelet - Statement Bracelet
Topaz Bracelet by LisaMarie's Piece

Jewelry catches my eye always. It helps that quite a few of the team members make jewelry. And I especially love earrings...

Sometimes I have no good reason for being drawn to something. Perhaps it's just the colors...

Or it's something that makes me laugh...

And since I'm a knitter and crocheter, anything fiber related catches my eye...
