10-Minute DIY Tassel Earrings

Work is a bit calmer these days and I'm able to have some time to be creative.  I've MISSED this!

I was shopping on Amazon and they showed me some gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff tassel earrings as part of their new Fashion offerings.  I loved the way they looked, but felt like the color options and sizing weren't quite right for me.

I decided to see what I could dig up from my giant stash of DIY supplies.  Earring hooks and jump rings were pretty easy to find, but I wound up having to visit Joann's to find embroidery thread in the colors I wanted.  I bought a BUNCH, but ultimately wanted to go with a more neutral, understated look and chose a medium gray color.

See the full tutorial after the jump or on my Instagram!

Lately - Gratitude, Life, and Sewing

It's been over a year and so much has happened!  Firstly, I want to say THANKS to all of you.  You have all been SO SUPPORTIVE of my posts, particularly the last one, and some of you joined even during my hiatus.  I know some of you still follow via Instagram, and though I post about food considerably more than sewing, you're still with me :)  I cannot adequately express my gratitude and I hope that this paragraph gives you at least an idea of what I'm feeling.

Over the past year plus, we've been keeping busy.  I've changed to a more demanding role within my company, we've done some fun travel to Hong Kong, Taiwan, and my bucket list destination, Australia, we moved to a new house (still in the Bay Area) so the kids could be in a better school system, and I'm still sewing here and there.  I initially went on a break because I couldn't keep up with a regular posting schedule and I was running out of creative steam.  Ultimately, I've decided that I'll post when I can (and this will be more frequent than an annual one!) and hope that you'll continue to join me on my sewing adventures.

For now, I'll leave you with snippets of some sewing projects over the past year.
