buy nolvadex australia I love, love, love, my grandbabies. They are my heart, soul, and world. When my 5-year-old grandson was getting ready to start kindergarten this year, I was not just excited for him though, I was excited for me! Let me explain. When his mom, my daughter, was in elementary school, I did the PTA thing full-time, and when I say full-time, I mean I went to her school with her in the mornings and didn’t leave until long after she was dismissed in the afternoons – every single day! I even served on our local County Council’s Board of Directors and had EIGHTEEN schools under me in addition to everything I did for her school. But I loved every freaking minute of it. Every time I subbed a class, laminated, copied, answered phones, just whatever needed to be done, I loved volunteering for such a great cause – the benefit of my daughter and others schools.

Anyways, last week I was busier than a fireman at a 5 alarm fire trying to sort out school field trip and spirit shirts and get them delivered to all the kids before said field trips that were this week. Then, on Thursday I helped chaperone the entire kindergarten to a pumpkin patch field trip to Dream Field Farms. It was an awesome experience for the kids. They all got to dive in a corn pit, which is basically like those ball pits at the pizza places, except it is dried corn. They thoroughly enjoyed jumping around in the “unmicrowaved popcorn!” There were pigs and goats, a hayride where they all got to pick out a small pumpkin to take home, and plenty, and I do mean plenty of other activities! They even have pig races!

As much as I love my grandson and having sixty 5 year olds and an entire faculty calling me Gamma, after those few days, I was, to put it mildly, crapped out exhausted! Buuuuutttt, still I couldn’t sleep one of those nights, and the secretary at his school is a HUGE supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness (she even put permanent pink streaks in her hair), so I cranked this out to give to her to thank her for letting me help out so much.

Flat Cellini Spiral Bracelet for Breast Cancer Awareness

Flat Cellini Spiral Bracelet

This was my first of any type of Cellini for a bracelet, let alone a flat one that I have done.  I used 6/0 opaque baby pink, 8/0 copper lined pink, 11/0 silver lined white, and 11/0 dark pink delicas. I finished it off with a matte sterling 3 strand clasp and sterling silver awareness charm. I made it about 9 inches in length, because it draws up quite a bit when you pick it up and put it on. I definitely had fun making this spiral, though I wish there was something that could be done to keep the thread from showing quite so much between bead sizes. Just a pet peeve of mine. If I had my way, all thread would become invisible once the clasp was sewn on! Now wouldn’t THAT be cool! If I could figure out a way to do it, I could be rich! What would I do with the patent for something like that? Well, buy more beads and yarn, of course! Duh!

I’m going to wrap this one up for this week. My little Doodlebug is walking now, and is literally trying to climb up my leg as I am typing this. It’s pretty close to her bedtime. If you haven’t already, please fill out the little box for the email subscription and you will get my sarcastic repertoire directly in your inbox every weekend and whenever I feel like it in between! I will be resuming my random postings in the next couple of weeks, so if you are an email subscriber, stay tuned! Don’t forget to leave me a comment on what YOU are beading/wire wrapping/polymer/lapidary/crocheting/knitting/and any other craft I haven’t listed here! ALSO, if you wouldn’t mind leaving me some sarcasm memes, I WILL use them in future postings!

Until next time, stay smart or stay smart sassy!

  1. love that you volunteer so much. I wish I was able to do that. Working 2nd shift I am not able to do that like I did when I was not working or working a different shift. Love the bracelet, I have done a few cellini tubular spirals as bangles I think if you did a tubular spiral then you wouldnt see the threads so much. But I do love what you made. great work.

    • Thank you! Volunteering is something that my mom instilled in me at a very young age, and I do as much as I can, where I can. I still haven’t done a tubular cellini, with the exception of the pendant that won the design challenge, but as soon as I get through the holidays and all those orders, I intend to. Thanks so much for the feedback! I love hearing from you!
