My first one.  It took me like five minutes to make this (not counting the time I had to spend trying to get the beads over a frayed ribbon end.  I didn't have a needle or anything special like that.  I bought a few packets of beads from Hobby Lobby and used what ribbon I had...which is why it kinda doesn't match very well.

I wanted at least one more sized bead on there, but Hobby Lobby's bead selection was awful.  It was mostly plastic kid beads in flourescent colors.   I didn't look too much at Michael's because I recently read a post on here about how sparse their bead selection is.  Well....not here.  lol.  Hobby Lobby was half empty and had a lot of colors, but not many styles, and nothing that would count as an accent bead.  The black and white beads I bought were the best I could find.

Anyway.  I too found a new hobby.  I just spent a half hour finding $30 worth of beads I want on the Oriental Trading Company website.       I used to love beads when I was little.  I would pile them all together just so I could separate them.  I didn't ever make necklaces or anything that lasted, I would always take them apart.  I just liked looking at them more than making things.           .......I wonder if I still have those......

I've started on my second bookthong.  I'm doing it w/ seed beeds all through the middle instead of leaving it open.  I hate WalMart, but they've got cheap beads...and they were open at 10pm last night when i needed them. Smiley   I got 4 different packages of beads for $8.   And some needles, which is why I had to wait until last night to start this new project because of all the tiny beads, I wasn't threading them onto the strand by hand....

Do they make different size beading needles?  They ony had one size at WalMart, and two of my seed beads fit barely, and another I have to force over the threaded end of the needle.  (Some will go easier than others - they're glass so I've broken a few).   I won't have a chance to check at our bead shop (Didn't know we even had one until yesterday) for a couple of days because I have to work.

Okee.  I finished another bookmark.  I had two different brands of seed beads, so some went over the needle easily, the light colored ones didn't...I broke about 10 of them trying to get them to go over.   Undecided  but that's okay, the package of them was only 9cents anyway.   Roll Eyes   







I'm just so surprised that the colors ended up going so well.  I'm usually horrible with colors, and am possibly slightly colorblind (at least I was when I was little).  Especially since I got half of them at Hobby Lobby and the rest at WalMart.  I usually have to hold things right next to each other, think a minute, then ask someone else if they think it matches   Embarrassed   hehe.

Another bookmark.  I've got so many projects going right now I think I'm just going to stick with making a bunch of these.  I want to try out some jewelry designs, but I just don't have time for new stuff anymore!   This one has blue, clear and yellow beads.

I just wanted to say that Chelsea those book thongs are gorgeous!

I may sign up for this Christmas All Year after this Christmas. No way I could keep up with the projects right now and I have to learn how to crochet and knit. Wink
