$1.00 Clearance

Yes, I joined the ranks of the New Year's shoppers today to use a gift card at Michael's. I admit it was sort of burning a hole in my pocket! I received it recently from a very kind and generous fellow crafter and co-worker.

There were $1 bins at the front of the store that had been pretty well picked over, but I was happy with quite a few of the items still left in the bottom. This $1.00 item was labeled, "Organics, 7 piece semi precious beads". I love the different sizes and the colors are so creamy. One of them reminded me of a butter rum life saver, yum!

These are very sweet and would make the perfect bracelet. I'm thinking about using varying sizes of crystal rounds inside each bead. However, I do have some 4mm bicones in earth tones. I just got out my tools and supplies, so we'll see what happens.

Have a crafty weekend!! I'll show you some of my other great finds in the next few days. I'm EXCITED!!

Lisa, I'm so very happy you had fun finding the treasures hidden at the bottom of the Micheal’s $1 bin. These beads remind me of food as well probably because I have re-started my weight watcher journal 3 days in a row – Ugh! I can’t wait to see what you make out of these beads and the other great finds you located during your shopping trip.
Happy Crafting!
