My newest fondness

I have taken a recent fondness to jewelry. I've always enjoyed it, but never really spent much time focusing on what I was wearing. I usually wore pieces that were given to me that had a lot of sentimental value. But, (my future) favorite Aunt Sheri has started selling this. After collecting a few new pieces to my collection, I have really started changing up my jewelry style.

I find myself deciding on my outfit by what necklace I want to wear that day. It has completely opened my eyes to my awareness of jewelry. Today I am wearing this...

I love putting on something simple and jazzing it up with a statement necklace. So fun! And I'm almost to the point of needing a new jewelry box. But thanks to this site, I can just find one on there and DIY!

Speaking of doing it yourself, I have really started to take a liking to finding new craft projects. I always liked them in theory, but I have started attempting new creations and I'm having so much fun with it. It probably helps that it's Christmas so everything seems just that much better.

In honor of these last 12 days of Christmas, I have been doing a Christmas craft or activity each day to celebrate the season. I have made salt dough ornaments (which still need to be painted), made sugar cookies (which still need to be decorated), and made a gingerbread house.

We attempted to make a beautiful gingerbread house, but it came out looking like this.

It's a lot harder than you least to make it look good. At least we enjoyed it. Also, please take note of the the roof (he's my favorite part).

Tonight, my craft involves paint, ornament, a hanger and some hot glue. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Until then, celebrate the season. Merry 9 days til Christmas!
