22¢. That’s a price I can get excited about! This metal washer was only 22¢ so a handful cost less than a gallon of gas!
One of the ways I found to help myself play was to use things from the hardware store. They’re often cheap…like today…I can get as many I could possibly want, and there is no pressure to use it correctly since I am not doing any home construction here. I am making a mixed media necklace!
As I turned that washer into a colorful necklace for this week’s Let’s Play link party, it became a necklace of gratitude. A count your blessings type of necklace. The numbers each represented something I am thankful for or some memory associated with the numbers. So as I wear it, I am reminded of all the every day things I have to be grateful for in my life.
And I even clean off a stencil in the video…but that is just to not waste paint…

Here are the supplies I used. Some of these links are affiliate links which means I get a small percentage. It doesn’t cost you anything extra and you are helping me keep this blog and my videos ad free! Thank you- I don’t like ads any more than you do!
This necklace is the one I thought was horribly ugly at one point in the video, and it turned out to be my favorite! That happens quite a lot to me.
