The Holidays are coming up. Have you started shopping for gifts yet? Perhaps you plan ahead and have already finished yours? To be honest with you, I haven't even started yet, but I'm thinking about what to get. I usually make many of my gifts, and I hope to do that this year as well. A shoulder bag for my eldest, a piece of jewellery for my mother in law, a knit shawl for my youngest. Let's just hope I have the time for it! As I should have guessed, I have been swamped with work right up until the week before Christmas that will keep me very busy indeed. For some reason, translation work tends to turn up in time for the Holidays – it was the same last year. But as I could always use extra money for presents, who am I to complain, right?
I made these two pairs of earrings last week. They still need to go into the tumbler, but the light was good so I photographed them anyway, just because. They are both very pastel and quite lovely. I will add them to my ArtFire shop, hopefully tonight.
