How was your thanksgiving break? Mine was fantastic. I love being home... even if all I did was eat and sleep, lol. I'm pretty sure I gained 3 lbs, and I was only home for 10 days! Gluttony, pure gluttony. I shudder at the thought of Christmas break and all the weight gain...
I went to the local premium outlets at midnight for Black Friday. It was absolute madness. Never again. Never, ever again. I ended up getting three things that I really liked, but it was definite chaos.
In bead news:
Michael's had a crazy black friday deal -- beads were 50% off and then I had an overall 20% off coupon. I ended up buying four of the rose strands (regularly $14.99) and then when I got home I realized that the cashier only charged me for 3 of them, oopsies. I'm obsessed. I spent about $20.
Also, at my local bead store they have a paper card-- whenever you spend $10 you get a stamp. When you get 10 stamps (basically spend $100) you get $12 off your next purchase. When I went to the cute store over break, I had 9 stamps.
I spent another $10 on beads (not shown), and got $12 off this strand of beads, originally $15.99. So I got them for only 3 bucks! Squeeeee.
Flower coin, smaller in diameter than my usual.
Sales are an endorphin rush.
Also, my birthday was in October, and my friend bought me an earring holder that I wanted from Icing. She said it was too delicate to ship, so I picked it up during the break and had to lug it through the airport to bring it back to school. It was a pain in the ass, but I love it!
(hello, I'm a twenty year old university student and I have glow in the dark stars on my walls.)
BTW, It's on sale right now for $16. It's originally $24.
I used to use this bird cage from Icing:
It's fantastic and beautiful but mine broke (RIP).
I needed something new to actually hang my earrings off of instead of just leaving them in the baggies. (Not that I really wear them anymore.) I have tons of earrings I have never worn. Scratch that, 90% of them, I have never worn, lol, and I own a lot.
I actually haven't taken any out of the baggies, lol, I just hung the ones I made recently. Sigh, I don't know what to do.
I've been watching a lot of jewelry/earring collection videos on youtube. I'm oddly fascinated. I like seeing what other people own and how they storage it. I want to see everyone's collections! Show me!
I've made about thirteen pairs of earrings so far that I need to sit down and photograph. I'm hoping to post another update this weekend, so keep a heads up!
Also I'm thinking of doing a tutorial, does anyone have anything they want to see/know?
