Strand of Beads from Big Lots!

I just love Saturdays!! Mainly for the sense of FREEDOM!! I do tend to gravitate toward structure and routine during the week just so I can click on auto-pilot sometimes in order to multi-task. When the weekend rolls around, it's a completely different vibe!

Even if I have places to be and things to do, it's usually things I WANT to do and things that I consider to be fun!

Tonight is craft night, yay!! We're making cigar box purses which involves mod podge, :)

I have a serious thing for mod podge. Ultimately I usually end up making a mess with all my fingers covered in glue, but that's what makes it fun for me!

I have a shrinky dink jewelry craft that I am teaching. It is a little bit unplanned, but that's what I think makes it fun for the others. They will not just be copying my design, but creating their own. I'm sure it will be lots of fun!

I will post the weekly project tomorrow so tonight I wanted to show you this strand of beads I found at Big Lots today! It's pretty cute and was $2.

Have a great, fun, crafty night!!

Those are cool! Like Caribbean waters. They cry for a summer design. And have fun on the weekend! Mine will be filled with beading in the garden. :-)
