new obsession



A friend at work was showing me her handmade buttons and explaining about Fimo and i was all, nooo, i don't need another obsession, but look here i am.

I bought two colours, pinned a whole lot of pretty pictures and tutorials on Pinterest and suddenly bam! I'm making beads. Yesterday i went back to the shop and bought several more colours.

No one is safe now. Jewellery for everyone.

Lovely blues. Yes I know that obsession feeling, every teacher and aide at school got necklaces last year.

I've been thinking about handmade fimo buttons too..... Grace got some Fimo for Christmas (along with a whole lot of other crafty stuff) and yeah, thinking....

Beautiful blues.

I never thought of using Fimo to make buttons - great idea.. I wonder if I have any Fimo left. hmm

Lovely colours and no, I don't need any more craft-y distractions! ;-)

What, quilting not good enough for ya? Pretty beads but. Now I need to look up this Fio thing.

Fimo. Damn you autocorrect.

Fine!
Just fine.
You know where I live.
(Though why one must MAKE the beads rather than just purchase them escapes me. )

There I was, about to start a new knitting project, while contemplating the purchase of a hot glue gun as a New Year's addition to my craft tools...and then I see what you've been doing with Fimo.

Now I must add Fimo to that New Year's list. Your beads are lovely!

Cheers!

I just had to look didn't I... And I am absolutely and definitely going to ignore all I have seen.. But I may take a quick peek at pinterest...

Lovely! I've been thinking about doing these, and maybe some felted wool versions, but every time I go to buy supplies I talk myself out of it. Where would I even PUT the stuff for a new obsession.

Predictably, I am in love with those blues.

They are on my "to make" gift list too!! Bought one for myself prior to xmas and then realised how easy, and effective they are. Now just need to buy some Fimo.
