Rainy Sunday

It has been raining since Friday so I haven’t been able to work on my chairs at all.  Isn’t that always the case?!  Every dang time I actually want to paint something it rains.  Awesome.  To make this weekend even lovelier, I had to work from 8-12 yesterday in order to make up a bad weather day.  It was only the teachers but I still would have preferred to go to my workout class and sleep in!

My mom’s friend had this bracelet and it was all elastic and too big.  A simple switch to wire, take two beads off, add the toggle and it is as good as new!  Plus I was able to use the two extra beads to make a matching pair of earrings.  EASY SMEASY!  Just use jump rings; best thing ever invented if you want to make some simple and classic earrings.  Next time I should take pictures and show you step by step.  Honestly, it is a lot of fun and requires VERY little time.  I worked on both things and was done in 15 minutes.

I tried to take a better picture so you could see the earrings but it was difficult since I don’t have a fancy camera.  So this is on my Christmas list for 2010.

Santa, I thank you in advance.

I love it! It looks great! And I hope you get your camera! I got one for Christmas and I LOVE it!! I am going to take some classes soon. I don't know how to use all of the fancy settings but just a simple point and shoot picture is so much better than my OLD (seriously, like 5 mega pixle 4 year old) powershot.
