Day 26: Fobulous!

I have to admit when I wrote yesterday's post I was drag...g...g...g...ging my feet to the craft room. But today, after having read your kind and encouraging comments I have to admit it's a little easier to look forward. (Four More Crafts!)

I think part of the problem is that I have all these recently made and homeless crafts cluttering up the work bench. And the totes holding my summer clothes are spread around the room. Two weeks ago, I couldn't get them up there fast enough; now I'm wondering if I should change out my closets yet. Stuff is just closing in. I've got to get up there and take control, and you've given me the energy to do that. Thanks.

I found two sets of really cool charms at my mother's local Michael's. One set had a sewing machine, a thimble, and a pair of scissors (a pair of scissors with a scissor charm on the fob, ha!); the other had a British phone booth (box) and a London Underground logo. And this charm. Coupled with some beads I unstrung from one of my mother's old necklaces, I think it makes a fabulous fob. It's fobulous!

Now I need some Union Jack scissors, right? If I get those, do I have to get the American flag scissors*? Oh, there are already those who think people like me are unpatriotic anyway. A pair of scissors isn't going to convince them.

*I like how these are called "Patriotic." They make them in Canadian flag, British flag, and Australian flag, but the American flag ones are patriotic. Let's just hope they came first and the name was already used up before the others came along.

REally cute! I love making beaded fobs cause they're so much quicker than stitching and finishing a fob. Love the charm.
