As I Lay Me Down To Sleep

Over the summer I eventually complained enough that I broke my boyfriend into building me a new head board out of left over wood from a friends home renovation! And this is the pic of it. All the polyurethane in the world didn't make it sparkle enough! So for 1$ I went to the local Dollar Tree and purchased me some clear assorted sized beads and away I went stringing them along with heavy gauged fishing line that also was free from this summers adventures (go with the strong line cause if it breaks let me tell you--- you don't want 1 million clear beads all over the place and it will happen trust me!) And draped it all into one loop and grabbed the center and held it back with a wreath I had from a spring project! And wholah! Thought for this project..... When working with beads work over a bowl or mat with a edge cause the beads will spill all over the place! And you won't find them all, your feet will! But only when your half asleep and on the way to bathroom! Enjoy...............

I would like to send a Happy Holidays out to all that have wondered where i've been! Well I did go back to school and with that I earned a Nursing Degree that I use to change the lives of others...... I'm a per-diem Lisenced Nursing Aide. And I don't think that there is another profession that I could have gone into that would fullfill me like the one i'm in . I have grown as a person and think about life in a much deeper way. It took some hard work and well some more hard work but it all came out with flying colors and i'm so proud of myself and the kids for standing beside me in the moments when I just wanted to give up. I've earned enough to fix the computer and put the internet back on and i'm quiet pleased with all that has come into place. I look forward to crafting more One Dollar Creations for you all so please stay tuned! OH and Angela if you are there your site was the first search and well worth it please keep up the great work!
