What is wrong with me that I enjoy days off work when I get to “work” on my necklaces? Even with my current bout of walking pneumonia, I cannot stand the idea of just laying in bed not doing anything. Yes, I do watch Netflix or Amazon Prime at a pretty good clip. If you want to talk about a television show, here are just a few I’ve watched the entire series of:
- How I Met Your Mother
- Game of Thrones
- The Big Bang Theory
- True Blood
- And so many more!
I guess I am not completely without the relaxation gene, but 90% of the time, I am doing something else while those shows are on in the background. This weekend, after eating WAY too much and getting WAY too spoiled by my awesome family members, I laid low at home and delved into some jewelry making. First off, I made this new piece:
I like the ring design and have tons of those barrel type beads that connect them in different colors.
Next up, I went back to the blue. I know. I know. I am addicted to blue but it makes me happy. Here you go:
I followed that up with a design I had seen on Pinterest. I am hesitant for whatever reason about mixing colors, but I decided to take a risk on this one. Plus it reminded me of Spumoni ice cream which I always get as dessert from the Old Spaghetti Factory. What do you think of this?
Last but not least, I went for a shorter style. I prefer necklaces that don’t actually touch the front of my neck so I tend to go for things longer than 18 inches, but I find lately that I am wearing a lot of round necklines to keep warm in the winter and longer necklaces don’t always lend themselves to that. Plus, I THINK that Meijer is going out of the jewelry supply section so these beads were on sale. I hope I am wrong because I love 24 hour access to instant beads and can’t always handle Wal-Mart. Here is the last one:
And foolishly I have yet to say I hope you’ve had a Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah or any other holiday you may celebrate. 2017 is just around the bend and I hope it is everyone’s best year yet! Until then, my humor for the day: Did you know the tan became popular during the bronze age? See you soon!
