I found some at a Joann Superstore on clearance a few weeks ago but last week when I went to Hobby Lobby to buy some Armor Etch I found them right next to the Armor Etch Smiley So I have lots to play with now Cheesy Although I did forget to buy stickers and tape...I should start making a shopping list huh? I could never work at Hobby Lobby...how do you manage to even bring a paycheck home? I never would lol. Thank you for the info Smiley

basically the eyeglasses rest through  the hoop by the stem and are folded ... not the traditional granny wear way where you have beads on both sides of your face... I made it for my friends mom who said she always misplaces her glasses and wished she had somewhere to put them

I was going to make my best friend an eyeglass holder the other way-after seeing this one jnaos I'm am torn, it looks so cool.  Maybe I'll just do both.
Know what you mean ruwena, I'm pretty sure I would end up deep in the hole if I worked at Micheals,fortunately (for my bank account)  its 2 hours away from my town.

When I worked at Barnes and Noble it was the same thing.  1/2 back to them.. and they don't pay that much to begin with.  I almost got a job at Michaels and I had to turn it down for these reasons

haha, yeah it is a bit of trouble, but luckily, i have a boyfriend who is like, "do you need that, really? what are you going to use it for? when?" basically everytime i want something or bring something new home, so I've learned to not buy so much. if i didn't have him, i'd never have a check.

Oh Misswrite.. I was wondering if you did the directiuons for the book thongs or just beaded some string.  I am a knitter and not too strong on crochet how long are yours?

I just looked at some on the net; like http://www.gemstonegifts.com/bookmark.htm. The first ones I made I used some vinyl string I had but I read a description of some that used waxed linen so I bought some of that. I like it pretty well and it seems strong enough.

I absolutely love your eyeglass holder. I have a friend who keeps hers on her necklace but this would be even safer. Very cool. Hmmm...who do I know that could use that? lol...thinking, thinking...... (I want to make one).

Thank You Thank you .. Im excited now.. I tried the crochet book thing but it was a pain in the booty to find nice beads with a decent opening.

I just typed this whole long message and well I hate my computer right now! Uggh! Anyway I just wanted to say everyone's stuff is so amazing. There are a ton of talented people involved this, you all rock. I on the other hand haven't been getting much done. Today I finally had free time though, I got two care bear pillowcases done, and three book thongs. My husband has decided that book thongs are the coolest thing yet, I don't yell at them AND they look cool. I wanted to thank everyone because you are keeping me motivated and helping me accept the fact I can only do what I have time to.  Grin  Grin  Grin

You don't yell at them.  Grin Sounds familiar. I've been making more book thongs but none for Christmas. We're having a silent auction at my church to raise money for a community center. People are bidding on themed gift baskets so I made a "garden" themed book thong and am working on a "music" themed one. I also made one with a little cross for a really sweet lady at my church. So, all this work and not a single lousy Christmas present. LOL (I do still have one of my mom's crossstitched towels left). This is the most fun thread I've participated in on Craftster. It almost gives me the nerve to do a swap.  Smiley

Okay...so I finally got started. I made 4 monster magnets out of polymer clay yesterday. Everything I have made lately has a monster theme. Don't really know why.  I'll post picture later.

Ok I am back after managing to drop the computer whilst we were changing the room round. They don't bounce do they lol. Well we had to get things sorted out with the insurance company and that took an age. Theyhad no record of us not helpful when we had paid the year in full up front. Anywayafter sorting that lot out we went ahead with our claim and we now have a brand new computer.
I will be making a start on things soon we have had a lot to do lately and seem to run out if time for doing things we want to do.

The book thongs were easy to do and I love them. Magnets will be next although I cannot post pics yet but will do when I have sorted out the stuff we need to do it.

Don't give up on me will you.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.
