I’m addicted to the Notes app on my iPhone. I have a list for things from birthday gifts to groceries. Well this weekend I made a point to make a list of fun things I wanted to do.
- Make jewelry with the components and tools you purchased a year ago in Seattle
- Take time to read on the sunny deck and take a nap out there finally
- Set up a schedule for blogging time organization (OK, this is kind of like work but it’s fun for me)
For some easy jewelry making, here’s all you need:
Jump rings (the circles that open up) and clasps:
These three inexpensive tools (wire cutter, round pliars and regular pliers):
Here I just connected some beautiful gold chain with pink crystals to make a long simple necklace. These are great for layering. For a tutorial on wire wrapping, click HERE. P.S. I did end up putting a pink crystal in the middle of that wire wrap to finish the look.I also made a gold clasped chain necklace for this cameo pendant I have.
After I got to do this stuff, I felt SO much better about my weekend! Usually I need someone to drag me out of my house to keep me from cleaning, organizing or check listing. I am so annoying! Sometimes I WANT to stay in and do fun things. This was the solution especially since when this baby comes, the stuff on this list is not really going to happen for like 25 years.
