I am NOT discouraged, however. I have orders for twenty bookmarks that I have to have completed and shipped some time in early October. In this carton, I have accent beads for about eight bookmarks. And at least one idea for a new necklace for me--since I have nothing red right now.
And then I have these earrings that I have finally gotten around to photographing.
A friend sent me an entire peacock's tail worth of feathers and I promptly put together these earrings.
I wore them to church exactly once so far. They are just a little on the long side for my liking. And I got a lot of surreptitious, indulgently amused looks when I wore them. I'm thinking maybe next time I go out someplace "fancy", I'll wear them again. The camera simply does not do justice to the lovely iridescent shimmer of the colors.
