Wonder and Whimsy Challenge - December Edition

Hello, everyone! 

This year has completely flown by... here it is, December. Imagine! Now, my goal is to keep this month's Wonder and Whimsy challenge rather simple... this is always a super busy month for me, and I don't want to overdo it. (Especially since I definitely overdid it last month, hah!)

So! For this month's challenge, I want to make jewelry inspired by this picture I took last month of our first seasonal snow:


I love the juxtaposition of the white snow against the bright red leaves... and, of course, there is the added bonus that this is a fitting color palette for Christmas. :)

So! Please come back on Friday, December 27th to see what I end up making! And feel free to make something, too, and share it on that day as well. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today... Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Wonder and Whimsy Monthly Challenge - November Edition Review

Phew! November was quite the month!

Now, I know that I posted the earring pairs throughout the month, but I thought it would be fun to show them all in one place, too. After all, there are quite a lot of them--and it's fun to see them as a collection.

So! Here you go! Here are all of the earrings that I made this month (in chronological order!):
































And, a bonus!


That last pair was made yesterday, on Day 30... I thought they would be a nice way to showcase some of the different techniques I worked on for this challenge (chainmaille flowers, seed bead fringe, handmade earwires).

I am really glad that I did this challenge... it's always fun to stretch my creative muscles. That being said, I'm really glad that November is over. Hah! Time to start thinking about Christmas presents. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today... Happy December, everyone!
