My Creative Space: Just Plain Wonky

I stayed up late last night to roll these Sheet Music Sacrifice beads, so they'd be nice and dry by morning.  I could seal them before breakfast, make the earrings after carpool, take pictures, and put them in the shop. 
 Yeah, right.  I was golden till the picture-taking part, when I was confronted with this upsetting reality:
Posted by PicasaThat is some profound lopsidedness, folks.  I don't even want to talk about it.  And it's not a wire issue---that would be entirely too easy to fix.  The actual beads are two different sizes.  No more late night rolling for me!
  So, these cuties were relegated to my personal jewelry box.  No one will notice their lopsidedness if I'm wearing them, right?  Besides, my ears are lopsided.  ( No joke.  Makes shopping for glasses a real joy.)

On the Not-Wonky Front, I managed to pop a bunch of new goodies into the shop.  The graduation-themed Dictionary Sacrifice Earrings have been getting a lot of attention, and the 50 Nifty United States bracelet was featured in a treasury today.  I have a blog project on the back burner---you'll hear more about it soon, I promise!---and the always greener FB page finally broke the 50-likers mark.

What's happening in your creative space?  Join in over here!
