a frittered weekend

I did it...I frittered the weekend away.  No projects, no major cleaning, instead I spent my time relaxing and doing fun projects. 


I mentioned that I am trying to revamp my pitiful wardrobe on a budget.  I have a few outfits in the works that I will be sharing with you later in the week but part of my frittering time this weekend was spent making jewelry.


I know, like another hobby is just what I need, right?  But I had all the supplies tucked away anyway so I thought it might be fun to pull it all out and give it a try.  I spent way too much time scanning pinterest for inspiration and away I went.  I had so much fun and stayed up way too late.


I'm not ready to share how it all comes together yet, so I thought I'd give you a peek at my work table and a few of the pieces I've completed.

I hope you had some time to fritter while watching movies, drinking a cuppa, reading blogs and maybe napping a little over the weekend, too.

More to share soon.

xo, Patty

  11. I frittered and took a nap. Isn't that what weekends are for? :) Can't wait to see what you made. I often look at beaded jewelry and think that it might be easy to make.

  16. I am really trying to fritter. I don't do well sitting still so I fritter at knitting, crocheting, Facebooking, blogging and anything to keep my hands busy and keeping my butt planted. I can't wait to see more pictures of the jewelry as you fritter away!!
