Kendra's preschool has a big auction/dinner every year. The parents are required to sell raffle tickets and procure at least 3 donations. I hate procurement. With a passion. To get around it, and still fulfill my obligation to the school, I decided to make jewelry to donate.
So far I've finished 2 bracelet and earring sets, and made one necklace/bracelet set to keep for myself. :) I plan on doing one more necklace/earring set to complete my donation.
I have learned so much, and really enjoyed doing it. My skill level has increased as well because I forced myself to try to make things that were much harder than anything I had done to date.
