Paper Beads… Interviews and Naked Hubby is a year older

Happy birthday to my Naked Hubby.  We had a good day of enjoying a local diner that has the best… EVERYTHING!  Then relaxing at home.

I had an interview this morning.  Yeah I know!  I had an interview.  I really enjoyed the place.  I have a second interview tomorrow.  Wish me luck!

Here is what ya’ll are looking for.  Craft photos.  These are not done, as the need time to dry.  But here’s where I am at.

Add enough boiling water to cover

Drain, add glue, then shape into balls

 That is the end of where I am.  They are drying.  I believe that I was very shy on the glue and will be attempting a second batch.  When they are dry you can paint them, drill a hole for your ribbon or yarn or string… and have some awesome jewelry.  I found the idea on http://www.astorybooklife.com/how-to/paper-beads/ 

Today I am working on finishing a crochet project.  It is slow going, but going.  I somehow got the skein tangled into the WORST knot of my life!   Now that I have taken care of that, it is going much much faster.  It is a simple, yet pretty afghan.  Photos tomorrow!
