Well, I finally did it.

After hemming and hawing about not getting the attic of the garage straightened out for the last 2 years, I finally did it.

Yep, I got up the gumption on Sunday and tackled the mess.  I was on a mission.

4 hours later I had boxes neatly stacked and organized.  I even set up the old kitchen table and made a nice little spot so I could start making jewelry again.

I missed doing this.  I used to make all my own jewelry at my store.  I was even gaining a reputation for fixing other stuff that people would bring in.

I like making simple things:  necklaces and earrings.  I’m self-taught, so therein lies the reason for simple.

I got right down to work and whipped out 4 necklaces in a couple hours.  My creativity was flowing like the Mississippi River at flood stage.  But everything came to a halt when I had to come back in the house and make supper. By the time I got done eating, I was too pooped to head back up there, so since I had Monday off of work, I decided what a better way to spend it that relaxing with gemstones.

Another 5 necklaces on Monday and I was ready to take pictures and find a place on this here site to share them with y’all.  Unfortunately, the lighting in the attic sucks, so I thought I’d bring them outdoors for a little “natural” light.

Yeah, that sucked too (or maybe it was just my lousy camera skills).

So against my better judgment, I brought them in the house to test out the kitchen ambience.

It wasn’t going too bad until Thor decided to check out what I was doing and lay down smack dab on top of a necklace and the black material I was using as a background.

Do you know what cat fur does to any kind of material?  Yeah, and this cat sheds so much I could make a whole new one every time I brush him.

The rest of the pictures turned out with fur all over the place. This is the reason I cleaned the attic – to find a little spot where the furballs wouldn’t decide that they needed to lay on/eat/play with the materials.

Oh well, back to the attic to see if I can work with the lighting I have and different background materials.  Wish me luck.
