So many crafts, so little time

Getting old has it's kudos. I can work on crafts as much as I want.

I am a baby boomer, from the hippie generation. Things that are retro now were new during my generation. I wore moccasins and tent dresses with large flowers on them. When I was young, we thought we could change the world too. I come from a military family - Dad was a Marine for 24 years - He and I butted heads a lot - maybe like daughter like father? I also spent 10 years in the AF. I miss the community feeling. The concept of the military is good, the application of it really stinks. I'm happy that the vets are getting help - I think it's one military conflict too late as far as I am concerned (Vietnam). Gun Control - how many children and others have to get killed before the Government does something about it. Military Conflicts - Sending men and women into harms way isn't working - the Government needs to come up with another plan.

You know, there are handmade things and then there are "handmade things" I prefer to make items that are "handmade". Yes, you can take a stone and a pre-made ring base, glue them together and you have a handmade ring. I do make some of those. But I really feel creative when I made items that are as much handmade as they can be. I like making my own ring bases, seed bead bezels, clay cabochons and sometimes even chains.
I "hand make" a lot of glitzy items - I think I was a cat in a former life. I liked sequins and rhinestones before they were acceptable (I'm going way back). This is back when it was not okay to have a tattoo. I like to make items that are saying "this is me, this is what I'm about". Gaudy, colorful, loud, out of the box, eccentric, eclectic, spiritual. If you or someone you know marches to their own tune, these beauties are perfect. All sent in jewelry pouches. Who doesn't want something that no one else will ever have. Love yourself, different is good.
