Dangling Earrings and Yo Yo Flowers

Hi Friends! A post! Wow! I haven't been blogging much, it seems but I have been crafting. I don't like posting projects that appear too similar to a previous post. I mean who wants to see a similar project but just in a different color or variation? I don't know, I just don't think you do. Well, I did create a pair of vintage inspired earrings and a few yo-yo fabric flowers yesterday. A little different. . .I've never created yo-yo flowers so this project was fun to make.

I really love vintage style jewelry! Although the beads and findings aren't vintage, they do have a touch of vintage flare to them with the antique brass flowers and pearls. The earrings are pretty dainty. ..measuring only 2.5" in length, I like how feminine they look. It's an understated accessory. When I wear necklaces, I don't like wearing bold or large earrings because it just feels like it's too much. I've seen women who wear large bold earrings with an ornate necklace and I don't know, I just think it starts to look a bit loud. . .sorry, I don't mean to offend anyone . . .it's just my taste. . .I don't like looking overly stated and overly accessorized.

I worked on a few yo-yo fabric flowers. I had to hand sew them. . .I tried to make them using the sewing machine and nope, it didn't work out too well. . . so hand sew it is. I have a ton of fabrics and haven't been quite in the mood to sew bags or aprons. I've been really lazy lately when it comes to sewing. I need to allot some time to work on sewing projects. . .it's not something you can do on the fly.

Here is another set that I created. I like mixing the crochet flowers with the yo-yo flowers. I think I'm going to work on more of them!

Anyway. . .I've been having terrible allergy attacks lately and today, I haven't sneezed yet so I better work on a few things before I start sneezing again. I can't craft when I'm having allergy attacks. . .it just makes me so miserable but right now, I'm okay. Yay!

I listed these items in my Etsy Shop: Inspired & Unscripted. Stop by my shop and check out the other items I've listed as well.
