Here is a fun little story for you. One night I am happily in dream land. Dreamland is supposed to be a place that one can get some rest right? Well apparently that is not the case for me. Apparently I tend to also work in my dreams. I dream of a necklace choker style, and I wake up and see that it is 1:ish AM (yes in the morning!) I say to myself… Hmmm well I have to work in the morning so I have to go to sleep. I close my eyes, and what do I see? That darn necklace is back and I see myself putting the beads together and crocheting this necklace with beautiful wire. I wake up… and it is now close to 2am. It seems that sleep isn’t going to happen anymore. I decide that if the dream was strong enough to interrupt my sleep, it deserves to be made into reality.
I got up quietly so that I don’t wake up my family. I got my tools from the hall, and the beads from the bedroom (shhhh… ever so quietly. Lucky me, I live with a bunch of really light sleepers. ) I got my small table and set up my working area, turned on the television and set to work. I worked for hours straight until I realized that it was close to 5am and I have to wake up at 6am in the morning to go to work. What is a bead crazy gal to do? Well put every thing away ever so quietly and try to get that one hour of sleep. (Which I did!) Was I tired the next day? Of course I was; however I had a wonderful satisfaction all day because of two wonderful necklaces that I made and one wonderful bracelet. Check them out below. I will be posting them for sale soon enough on my site’s store. For now, check them out. They are made with brass non tarnished wire, I crocheted this wire and added these glorious colorful vintage glass beads. (Those beads were hard to get, and I am glad that I did get them!) The creations came out just like I dreamed they would be. No! They came out even more beautiful! What do you think??
