I wouldn't say I'm a 'cheap' jewelry artist. . .more like thrifty. . .or economical.
I grew up without much money and learned to make do with as little as possible.
Though times have changed, I can't seem to shift my penny pinching habits and the ingrained lesson that if you want something, just make it yourself.
With frugality constantly in mind, I'm always grateful for sale items and generous friends.
As such, the below items I scored last week really brought a smile to my face.
Hobby Lobby had lots of Vintaj pieces on clearance. I scooped up as much as I felt brave enough to spend!
As well, a sweet friend handed me a baggie of some of her old jewelry to play with. I was able to re-work some pieces that she liked to give back to her. Afterwards, I was still left with these treasures.
Anyway, I just thought I share some of the cool items that can be gained with very little money at all.
It's time to share my menu! The dinner menu is a little weak because we've got a lot going on a few evenings. . .including going out to dinner for our 9th Anniversary!!
Breakfasts: Bagels, cereal/grits, hashbrown baskets, pumpkin cream cheese muffins, omelets, cinnamon sugar croissants
Lunches: Turkey sandwiches, tuna noodles, chicken salad, pepperoni pizza puffs, chicken fingers w/baked beans, PB&J

I'm off to do some more frugal shopping as I head out to the dollar store to scope out possibilities! How do you save money to make jewelry?
