I find that I tend to craft in cycles.  You know, I’ll crochet for a while, then I’ll get really into card making, then I’ll be obsessed with recycled crafts, and eventually I’ll pick up crocheting again, and so on.  Lately I’ve found myself on a jewelry-and-accessories kick, and I’m thinking about making a few of these rustic spoon pendants by Dorian at Busily Spinning Momma.  I’m particularly fond of the rusty, aged effect that makes the pendant look like it came out of grandma’s jewelry box.  And they’ll be a great use for all of  that scrap paper I’ve been hoarding for all these years since I stopped scrapbooking.  (You guessed it… Another crafty cycle!)  [how to make a rustic spoon pendant]
