I haven’t been working quite as hard as I have in the past. Here lately I have decided that I can take things a little bit easy. A post doesn’t have to go out every day, my emails can be checked every few days instead of every few minutes and I can stop pulling the hair out of my head :)

It’s really quite liberating and it’s helping me to tackle some of the projects I’ve wanted to do for a while but haven’t because they aren’t super quick. Because when you’re trying to do 5-7 different craft projects per week it gets stressful. It’s not as easy as just glittering something. For each post I create a craft, photograph between 75-200 photos while making it, edit those photographs, upload the pics and add all of the meta information required for each, figure out how to describe the directions for a blog post, actually write it, find and create appropriate links for that post and get that sucker scheduled. I still have all of the things to do that any non-blogging crafter has to do. I have to source materials, dig everything out of my stash, put everything back, clean up the glitter I got all over EVERYTHING.

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE what I do. LOVE IT. But there’s so much work involved in doing what I do. And letting go a bit, well, it’s been great for me.

And so when I saw a tassel necklace online for sale for $145 I knew it would be a bit time-consuming to make my own but I thought, “hey, lady, you can knock this sucker out and if you have one less post this week, well, it’s highly probable nobody will even notice!” And so I spent an entire afternoon watching Orphan Black with my Mr. Rob and animals in bed while I made this necklace, running to the light box to take appropriate snaps. And guess what? It was wonderful. In the end I have a necklace that I LOVE, cost me less than 1.2% of the price of the one I found online and I just plain had a nice afternoon. Score!

So head on over to Mom Spark and check out my labor of love that you, too, can make with a little bit of a time investment and a few items out of your craft stash! Make your own tassel necklace!
