What I did when I should have been doing something else

I seem to get alot done when I'm avoiding doing what I should be doing.  

A chronic procrastinator is a person who has mastered their ability to justify why something can or should be delayed, often deciding illegitimately that they cannot begin a task due to external forces beyond their control.

Ya, that sounds like me.  Ha!

See, I couldn't put up Christmas decorations because first I should clean the house good, and second, I didn't want to get into the attic without my husband's help.  I did try.  My all purpose room, laundry, pantry, office, and jewelry making room is a huge catch all for clutter.  So I started organizing all my bits and bobbles when I came across some spritz cookie press discs.  Almost forgot I'd gotten these out junking one day, liked the patina and thought they'd be something different.

Anyway the organizing got sidetracked 
and this is what I came up with.

Spritz cookie necklaces!

This is my favorite.


 I put a few in my etsy shop and the others I brought to a new shop here in town, Che Bella, that is caring some of my jewelry and home decor creations.

Btw, I did finish with my Christmas decorating.  
I made these a week ago, it just took me a week to post.


  1. How delightful!! Glad to meet you, sister/procrastinator!

  2. What a great idea - spritz necklaces! I'm a procrastinator too - and blogging doesn't help!

  3. Those are great! I have some of those...somewhere...!

  4. Now that was a good way to procrastinate! They are fabulous! Theresa xoxo

  5. Just fantastic... I so get the procrastination thing...but look what you accomplished if you didn't have this pension for procrastination would you have created such amazing pieces?
    Thanks for playing along and have a wonderful Holiday!

  6. are you KIDDING me? These are amazingly beautiful and creative. j'adore! TFS!

  7. Now I am sorry I gave my grandma's cookie press to my daughter! These are truly wonderful. Truly.
    Merry Christmas!

  8. Susanne~ these are so creative and wonderful...I just love them!! Beautiful work!

  9. These are so unique and just beautiful. Love them all but I think the Christmas tree is my favorite. It was worth procrastinating getting the decorations out to make the jewelry. I am a major procrastinator....in fact I should be doing my computer work for my "real" job right now but I justified putting it off to read some blogs!
    Have a great day.

  10. My goodness! If this is what you do when you procrastinate, I say put off everything!!!! Gorgeous!

  11. I love them! May I please buy the dog one? I went to your Etsy shop but it was blank. They are all so cool. You should procrastinate more often ;)
