When I was a kid….bored was NEVER something you said to my parents….they always had something for us to do if we even looked like we were going to utter the word! I’m sure that many of you can relate…My father died when I was a baby…(7months) and so his family not wanting to lose track of us….took my sister and I ALOT! We spent all of our summers and sometimes winter break with Daddy’s family. He had an Aunt…(Tressie) but we couldn’t say that when we were little….so she became KK. Aunt KK was single….she never married or had kids….so I guess in a way WE were her grandchildren. She was like many who have never had children…..she had all the answers….with nothing to back it up with…..but she LOVED us…and we knew it! She was a NO NONSENSE woman! When we told her that we were bored…..she would ALWAYS respond with “You’re not bored…..You’re boring!” That didn’t make too much sense till I got a little older…and then it made PERFECT sense….interesting people NEVER get bored. When I figured out what she meant….I decided right then and there…..I would NEVER EVER EVER be bored again!!! I never have.

My PASSION if gardening…..I live for it. In the winter I have to fight depression and anxiety constantly! So in order to keep what little bit of sanity I have….I craft…decorate…piddle….what ever I have to….to keep from being bored….or BORING!!!!

Today…..I crafted….and I decided to share what I did….

I went shopping with my dear friend Cheryl this week-end…and we looked at jewelry all day long….got me inspired……

Oh…the backdrop is curtsey of my precious friend Diane! She made me several….and I haven’t had a chance to photograph them until now! They’re perfect for this!

I also saw a belt buckle that got me thinking….I’ve been wanting a more decorative belt buckle and they are just ridiculous new…..so I made this…..pictures don’t do it Justus….so when the glue dries…..I’ll put it on Sara and photograph it again!

Love Y’all!
