Wednesday was my first day off is about 2 weeks, so I took the time to complete some crafty projects around the house.
I finished up this pom-pom Christmas garland and made a sand-bag draft stopper out of an old pair of N's jeans for the back door.

After the a fore mentioned stone-setting workshop I took, I have made my first jewelry with diamonds and gold. As with the silver ring in my previous post, these diamonds all came out of diamond jewelry I inherited from my grandmother, as did the gold.
I melted the gold down, hammered it into thick sheets and got to settin'! So I guess they're pretty eco-friendly too. It's funny how being too poor to buy materials often dovetails so nicely with being environmentally sound.
