My daughter came up to me one day and asked me if I could get her a pair of cheer leading earrings like the other girls have. Well I was a bit stumped and when you have six people in the house money can be kind of tight at times. So I told her I would check and see what I could do.
So after a bit of searching I quickly realized that the earrings she wanted was a bit more than I could spend on them. Not to mention she is a bit of a tom boy and really don’t wear earrings that much. So when she asked again I told her I don’t think I could get them. Poor thing was heart broken and broke my heart she was disappointed.
So I started to search to see if I could even find the charms as if I could find them I may be able to make her a pair. After a bit of searching I found them at Hobby Lobby. Game on. So a few days later I went to Hobby Lobby with 40% off coupon on my phone and when I got there I was in bit of surprise. They were on sale for 50%. Awesome! But then I looked at the charms and quickly my heart sank a little. Nothing with the charms, but there was the loops on them so they could be charms. Now what am I supposed to do? Then it hit me. I can make this work.
I bought the charms and brought them home. Got into my bag of beads and looked for 2 blue and 2 white (or even clear as that would work). I then assembled them all together. Go me! I let them sit and dry and when baby girl got home she was excited. Not only did she have cheer earrings now but her mama made hers.
