I exhibited disgustingly huge amounts of self control by exiting out of my shopping cart on etsy before entering my credit card information.  ~AND~ I started out with $50 worth in the shopping cart and had brought it down to $10 before getting to the credit card point. 

*dancing and celebrating...and also regretting.  Tongue  *

As far as actual DE-stashing, I have made two jewelry displays in the last two days: 
One uses an embroidery hoop that was missing the little screw to loosen and tighten, and some window screen.  It also uses some of the ribbon stash.

The second one uses an old picture frame that I had utterly destroyed with an attempt to make one of those awesome rhinestone wreaths.   The wreath was an utter failure, but the jewelry display isn't.  It used up the frame and this really cool piece of fabric that I have been holding onto forever with no idea at all what to do with it. 

I'll update this post with photos in a little while, once the paint dries.

I have made two jewelry displays in the last two days.  Both super easy.  I'll post pictures in a little while, once the paint dries.

Okay, here are three pictures:
1) the tray display I made awhile ago.  This time, it's being used.  It's filled with a bunch of necklaces I made.  Sadly, it's upside down.  


2) the hoop display I made.  The earrings in it are store-bought way back when I managed a Claire's.  It was a dangerous place for someone who was born with the magpie gene.  Tongue


3) the frame display.  It's sideways, because I can't figure out how to change it.  But, all of the earrings on it are ones I made.

Aww, thanks! 

To be honest, I am cleaning my craft room up specifically so I can finish decorating it with a LOST theme.  I'm such a geek.  Tongue

I think we all have that issue CLM.  I know that I can't pass a craft store without stopping in "just to look" if I have a spare few minutes.

Pretty pieces!
Does the bracelet with the wee bells make a lovely jingle when you wear it?

Yes, it does.  I am actually thinking I need one in every color.  Smiley

What a cute Idea. I love the dark green beads, they remind me of the jungle.

That's exactly what I was thinking of Smiley

*gawking* at Feast Your Eyes' incredible skill!  That is AH-Maze-ing!

I made a few things, and pulled out some from that huge bag of "half finished" projects.  I posted them over in jewelry.

I am going to be doing some more, and clearing out the huge bag.

In an attempt to clear out my craft room, I have been pulling out all of the "half finished" projects and completing them. 

Here are some I finished up last night and today. 






And here are some I did awhile ago and forgot about.  Tongue




I'll post more later as I finish up more.  It's so wrong that I have kept things like "closures" keep me from doing it.  Bad crafter, no coffee!

Dewshinesdopp, your bracelet is lovely. I like the camaieu of colors you used and the randomness of it.


Aww, thanks so much yoopidou!  And thanks for teaching me a new word Smiley  I had to google "camaieu".  Now I know there's a fancy word for "make something in random shades of a single color". 

That makes me so happy! 

I completed a few others, only one of which was on my list. 

Behold, more random    camaieu jewelry 





And from my list, a LOST bracelet.  Since I plan to add a few more charms, it is still technically a WIP, but it's full enough to wear, so I'm calling that a win.  Smiley

So I'm a little obsessive about LOST.  It's been a few years, and I still randomly shout "We have to go back" at my family, just because it fits the situation.

Because this obsession is still dear to my heart, I decided to make something to shout it to the world a little more quietly. 

Behold, my (still in process) Lost charm bracelet.  Sorry for the shadows, my lighting stinks..
