Stupid Beading Tricks: More bracelets

March 31, 2014

We are off from work today to celebrate an amazing Annual Meeting. Which I didn’t have to attend, but we get the day off anyway. While I was waiting for maintenance to come in this morning and fix a crack in my bathroom ceiling*, I busted out the beads.

Have you heard? We have a baby shower coming up for the lovely Kristen and I decided to cheap out and make the prizes for “baby shower bingo”. Keeping with the “forest” theme, I have this green beauty:

bracelet - green tree

Green tree pendant from Beadfreaky.

And in case two people call out Bingo at the same time I put this together, using some wood beads, ceramic beads, and “natural” “gemstone” rounds that I picked up from somewhere.

Pendant also by Beadfreaky.

And in case three people tie with baby shower bingo, I’m bringing the hooty-hoo bracelet. If four people tie I’ll just dissolve into awkward ugly crying.

The baby shower is pretty much in the can. The restaurant has the headcount and food choices, we have favors, we have bingo cards, we have centerpieces, we have an “it’s a boy” banner that I MADE using clip art I bought from Etsy, we have a wishing tree ready to go (well, right now it’s just a branch) and now we have prizes. I tried to yarn wrap a letter “A” in honor of baby nephew’s name, but that was a hot mess Pinterest fail. You guys, I seriously can’t wait to share all of it with you because I’m proud of how it turned out.

Now all I have to do is stave off the nightmares of food poisoning or guests throwing rocks at me because I didn’t buy the wine service. (Seriously, the guest of honor can’t drink. Buy yo’ own wine.)

*Now I’m waiting for them to come BACK and check out our sink, because the painter washed his tools in it, and the drain’s slow because of the spackle mix. Can’t win. Can’t win. Can’t win.
