Got My Craft On... :-)

Hi my sweet friends..   You really are, you know!  I'm so happy to know each and every one of you.  I'm so glad you come to visit.  It makes my day, it really does.

So...  five or six years ago I saw a similar bracelet in a bead store........I RUSHED to sign up for the class, but it was going to be impossible for me to make it to the class at the time the class was offered.  I put my name on the waiting list.

I waited and waited and waited.


I checked back countless times while searching for the class somewhere else.

I did find a class on a Hawaiian vacation.  The class was the day after we left.

Searching.  Searching, Searching....

And, FINALLY...  Whooppeee........YeeeHaw.....and Good Glory Be...   

I found the class and it was a LOT less expensive that the other classes I had found......and there were only two students that daughter and ME!

As I've said a million times....I am crazy about my girl.....and it's always a good day when I can spend some time with her.

This is my first shot at this kind of bracelet and it has some boo-boos...  glad you can't see them in my lousy shot...     :-)

Someday I'm going to learn to take good pix.

We had so much fun and I'm already putting collections together to make more.  Oh yes.......I'm not a "One Shot Tilly" kind of chickie.....I'll make one in every color.  That's just how I roll.

And, I bought that cute 'lil box while out thrifting for a couple dollars.  Isn't it cute?  Sort of reminds me of some that have been on Decor Steals, doesn't it?

Have a wonderful weekend.

I'll be at the bead store.    :-)

I'm joining the wonderful Beverly over at How Sweet The Sound.

Pop over.  It's Pink Saturday and it's a Pink Fiesta!

Huggies and Lovies,



*Please excuse the drips on my box...  I did clean the darn thing...  really, I DID.

  15. I love the bracelet. It's beautiful. And how lucky to spend some quality time with your daughter.

  16. Oh, sweet friend ... this is gorgeous! Life isn't perfect so it is ok to have a not perfect jewelry to go with it. Did you have a fab trip to Hawaii?

    Emery just did a week climb of Mt. Rainier for his bucket list ... he was thrilled to celebrate his 50th (can you imagine he's older than us?) up there.

    We are taking Tatiana & Ansel to Williamsburg & Busch Gardens this weekend. Yippee! I love the rides. Can hardly wait.

    Love to you both ~
    Have a fabulous week~
