Ideas like seeds sprout and grow in their own time, then before you know it you're working on a project that you think has nothing to do with Christmas preparations.
Back in November, while at our scrapbook weekend, I coerced Debbie into a walk with the intention of picking up bunches of little acorn caps(Isn't she is a good sport!). We collected quite a few and my mind swirled with visions of colorful polymer clay acorns using real caps. Those caps sat in the bag, and sat, and sat.
Now here it is the end of December. I'm in the middle of shopping, wrapping, cookie baking and such, but the last two evening I have lost myself into figuring out the best way form perfectly imperfect colorful little acorns charms...why now??
Then last night, around 9:30, it dawns on me...I forgot all about teacher gifts (today was the last day of school before break). I made a batch of acorns in school colors and added them to some chain to make necklaces...done!
