For many years I’ve been getting together every Wednesday for beading with a couple of friends. My bead collection is overwhelming. So. many. beads. I can see them with my waking eyes…
In the spirit of the 365 project I’m trying to spend nothing on beading this year.
I found a package of child-size bracelet wire wrap (to make bracelets shaped like Slinkies, that you wrap on). I bought this by mistake years ago and never planned to use it. Plans change. I snipped a section of three or four full rounds and twisted a small loop on one end to keep the beads from falling off.
I have boxes (and boxes) of glass beads in random shapes, sizes and colours. I sorted by colour and strung the beads in a rainbow pattern, and attached a heart charm to the end loop. Cute, no?
And if one is cute, nine must be cuter.
I may have gotten a little carried away. I’m all out of wire now.
If I ever host a party for a bunch of preschool girls I’m prepared. We can play Oprah: You get a bracelet! Everybody gets a bracelet!
And a toque…
Cost of these Things: 0
Cost of all Things to date: €21.79
In July I WILL be hosting a party for preschool girls. Can I buy them from you? Seriously, those would make the cutest party favors.
Party favours for my favourite almost-four-year-old twins? They’re yours! Do you want them all? You can pay me what they cost (see above).
Yes, the party will be at Go Bananas in Richmond on July 31st. You’re invited! Yes, I will take them all. I can always give them as gifts to the girl’s friends. 🙂
