Inspired.....

 I have literally dozens of things I want to be working on,
dozens of things that are started that need, at some point,
to be finished and I'm having a difficult time getting the oompf to do them.
Clay things, charm things, bead things, I have metal clay, a kiln, ideas, no oompf.

Life is good☺
Work is good☺
Hubby is good♥
Lily girl is good♥

It's all good 'cept for the oompf.

I've been looking at some gorgeous micro-macrame jewelry by this awesome artist.
I also stalk her on facebook and I had been wanting to try something different,
but no oompf :~(

Then one day this lovely lady announced a sale on her
absolutely gorgeous lampwork glass focal beads and I thought maybe
I could combine the macrame and the lampwork.
And since an entire drawer full of Juls beads is not enough
for any living being,
(I may have mentioned a small addiction a time or two)
I had to order a couple of focals
(and, ummm.... some beads just cuz)
And since I am an extremely impatient person and I didn't want to
wait the entire.. what.. 4 days for the new focals to get here,
I pulled out one that I already had
~ *surprise*~
and I made this.
My first micro-macrame bracelet

I knotted and "un" knotted this probably close to twenty times ...really.
It has so many flaws I don't want to even try to count them all 
and..... 
I absolutely love it♥

I have no idea how I am going to finish it yet but I'm sure
eventually it will come to me☺
And since I will always continue to "be me" I have started
another project before finishing the last one.


It took a while to figure out how to add cords,
since I could only fit so many through the hole in the focal.
But I finally found a way that I liked the look of.
( I also just spotted a wonky knot that I need to fix)
But I really like the way this one is starting out.

And I have a plan to organize my work area this up coming weekend.
There hasn't been a single time that I have gone there to organize that I haven't been
distracted by some project or another, hopefully this time won't be any different.

I'll be hunting for my oompf☺
