i bought this gold-shell necklace and earring set while in florida on our disney world vacation back in january. i bought quite a lot of jewellery because we hit some pretty good sales. every now and then, i see this specific gold-shell set and wonder if i should wear it or not. it's a little more *bling* then i'm use to wearing – i'm just not use to it. but… i finally wore it. and as expected, it definitely got noticed. chaeli's preschool teacher commented that it looked pretty and i replied, "yeah – i was in the mood for a little *bling* today."
- i don't know why i'm using the word 'bling' so much these days. isn't that totally, like, five years ago?
watched 50 first dates again last night. what a feel good movie. both funny and heart-warming. i love both of the main characters.
- two nights ago, i started to re-orgnize my craft shelf (no where near completion of being de-cluttered and cleaned out but the process has at least started – of which i hope to complete this weekend… wow – my life is just so exciting). i found a couple of craft-type projects that i haven't even begun to start on! one is my jewellery beads and tools. so i went online to get inspired by some work of jewellery making hobbiests. i must say – there are a slew of talented people out there! and not those who are trying to make money out of it – just people who are passionate and creative about their hobby. anyway, i've decided that i needed a goal, which is to make at least TWO charm bracelets, one for my SIL and the other for my MIL, as part of their stocking stuffers for christmas. i may even make them christmas bracelets. i figure that way, if they hate it, they only have to wear it once a year and then put it away, never having to look at it for another 365 days.
- the other project is actually in form of a kit – a cross-stitching kit. i bought the kit at my MIL's store two years ago, planning to have it done by this past christmas (as it is a christmas cross-stitch project). boy – did i miss that deadline. anyway, yesterday, i started it. it's the first cross-stitch project i've done since i was a little girl but i'm glad to have finally started it. i will get it done by christmas (it's not very big) so we can use it as part of our decor this year.
- i have four birthday presents to by; three children's gifts of which i have to purchase before mid-august and one adult's birthday gift for the end of the month. oh my goodness…
