Back on the wagon.....

....(is that how the saying goes?)

It's been a long time, but I finally participated in a DIY project...

How to Make it:

1)Buy a $45 necklace two years in advance.
2)Like the concept but don't really like the necklace but wear it every now and then out of guilt for your more-than-you-would-normally-spend-on-a-necklace purchase.
3)Two years later buy a delicate gold chain with a key-lock charm and wear it almost every day.
4)Have your stomach drop to the ground as you watch your charm fall down the drain.
5)Feel sorry for yourself for a few weeks.
6)Bust out the pliers and finally get the nerve to cut other chain, which is the only way to remove the peace charms.
7)Put charms onto chain. When they won't shimmy their way through, find some dental floss. Thread the chain and use that to pull the charms through. (Can you tell I'm super proud of that step? Had to get all MacGyver-esque.)

Finished product created. One DIY project and $85 later, you have a one-a-kind necklace.

I think I'm going to save myself some money and just go shopping this weekend.......
