While I was suffering with my website, Darrin came in my room to tell me that he had to go to Geico to make his first payment. Yes, he just saved a bunch of money on his car insurance by switching to Geico. There, I said it.
He said it was over on California Ave. and Stockdale Hwy so I decided to get away from my blog problems and go with him to get out of the house and get some fresh air.
While we were out I wanted to go to Michael’s so I could buy some hemp cord and some wood beads for making my necklace. I don’t care anymore about making it my “reward” for when I drop down to 200lbs. Mainly because I’m in a plateau which is frustrating and a necklace will make me feel better lol.
They didn’t exactly have the beads that I wanted like the ones that are sold at Acajou Games and Crafts but the ones that I did find will do just fine. The ones I found at Michael’s were cheaper and came with a variety of colors and sizes at only $1.99 with 80 pieces. I also got a package of wood pony beads for $3.99 with 90 pieces. I’m pretty sure I have enough wooden beads to last me a long time.
I got my bracelet pattern which will teach me how to make the same pattern for a necklace and since I’ve never made one of these before, the bracelet will be my teacher so I can make the necklace without wasting too much hemp cord.
This macramé project will keep me busy for a while and I will take a picture if it turns out ok and post it lol.
Well I’m just about finished with the bracelet and the pony beads are way too big so I’m gonna have to do something that will hurt me, I’m gonna have to cut the entire bracelet up to remove the beads and put them back in their bag and start all over. That’s ok because it’s all a learning process, you can’t learn if you don’t make mistakes.
The other bag that I got for $1.99 has beads of many different sizes so I think the little beads will work for the bracelet and necklace. I don’t know what I’m going to do with all the big beads, I’m sure I’ll find something.
It’s going to be awhile now before I can supply a picture so until then…
