January 27 – Bead necklace

Jan 27

 

Today I’m giving away this beaded necklace, in fact, I gave it to someone as a birthday present a couple of days ago.  This past Christmas I started giving gifts from my house, instead of buying new stuff.  For most birthdays, I’m trying to either make something, give an experience, or give something “vintage” that can find a new home.  My friend MaryAnne had a recent birthday and I gave her a makeup bag that I had made for her and embroidered with about 300 french knots.  I also gave her this necklace (same colour as the knots) which was something that I made for me about two years ago.  I love the colours but it’s not a great length on me and I thought it would suit her better.  She’s a great friend and is craft positive, and she really liked both presents – or she’s a really good faker.

Just catching up from being away this weekend.

I'm trying to make more space in my life so I'm getting rid of stuff. All the things that I've been hanging on to that might have some utility for someone else, if no longer for me. I'm going to try to give something away every day.
