I love decorating and creating things, but not so much that it’s all I ever do…or all I ever think about…day and night…night and day…awake or asleep. I mean, it’s not a problem or anything. I can stop anytime I want to. Okay, I admit it…someone has to take my glue gun away from me before I embellish the whole house. I rarely get addicted to things, usually the first sign I feel that something is getting a hold of me I stop doing it. BUT with all the isles in the craft stores full of beautiful, shiny, sparkly trimmings and jeweled baubles it’s definitely becoming more difficult to stop. Oh, the rhinestones, the many colored jewels of all shapes and sizes, the iridescent pearls, the gilded buttons and lace bows, the seashells, the dried flowers, the butterflies, birds and fruits…I can browse the isles for hours on end. So much so that I now have boxes and jars filled with pretty embellishments. I just beautified my office by bejeweling some fabric storage baskets and adorning others with silk flowers, I’ve trimmed boxes with lace and rhinestones, I’ve garnished picture frames and mirrors, and added glass crystal knobs to furniture…the creative possibilities are endless. Luckily, I can pull off a bejeweled look for my office being I’m a jewelry designer, but there’s a thin line to cross to overdoing the look. The secret is NOT to cross that line. So, I’m posting to warn others that I believe that glue guns may lead to addictive behavior. BUT, not for me…I’ve got it all under control. Really, I’m not worried, there’s no monkey on my back brandishing a glue gun, nope. Well, I’m heading outside while there’s still some daylight left…I think the front porch might need a little extra pizzazz…maybe a lacy spring wreath…and a bejeweled topiary tree!
