No report today. I had something going on, but after a test run, I am going to tweak it and have it ready by this weekend.
Until next week.
I’m supposed to be working on my necklace!! LOL. But as usual, I got excited thinking about being so close to completing a piece that my princess likes. She LOVES all the Betsey Johnson items @ Macy’s. Comparing the pieces that I have on hand, the item[s] that my daughter wanted to have…I think I am almost ready to get started.
$65.00 @ Macy’s
All I need to get are rhinestone chains,  gold tone chains, and more jump rings. I can tell you right now, even with all the separate purchases, I still haven’t spent less than half of what this ready made piece costs.
Sorry for the late post. I have some family issues that needed to be dealt with. here’s the finished necklace and earring for this week.
working on the bracelet….
Beads: FREE…thanks neighbor!
6ft Chain: $1.00 @ Walmart[it’s a discontinued item]
Connector Strand: $4.00
Total cost: $5.00 + tax
I couldn’t resist but I had to get the following! I still don’t know what I’m going to do with it, but for now it’s in a box….I spent about $12.00 – still less than $75.00!
7/30/12: My shipment arrived today! For $20.00 including shipping and handling, here are the pieces that came..I ordered 2 of the trinketts. I took advantage of Jo Ann’s 50% off on beads and charms!!!
..The black bow is for me and the rest is for my princess! If you’ve read the Why DIY? page of this blog, you can see what I’m trying to re-create by 9/22/2012 and more. I got the piece mostly done, I am missing just one piece of that necklace and I’m just waiting for a good payday where I can place an online order.
Until next week!
