A Day of Earrings!
After the first 1/2 hour, I decided I needed to figure out a way to hush them up without sitting on them. :) Enter my earring making mission. If I sat one of my dogs on my couch and the other one laid at my feet, I could grab their collars as necessary and they were good as long as I was sitting right there with them. (Translation: I was not able to leave the room without them barking their freaking heads off.)
So I grabbed 3 random bead boxes, and my box of findings and away I went. I made 10 pairs of earrings, an adorable bracelet, a beaded eyeglass chain in turquoise colors and started a new spiral rope seed bead chain. (Which I can't wait to share with you because it's turning out AWESOME using black & silver.)
My earring marathon turned out to be a double bonus. I now have more items for the open house I'm having next Tuesday. It adds more items that are great last minute additions to any back-to-school gift pack for teachers or daughters. :o)
It 'twas much fun, and a great bonding experience with my dogs.
