I decided that me and the girls need to make Valentine necklaces and bracelets for our AG dolls. I went shopping at Hobby Lobby in Visalia on Saturday and found some really cute Valentine ornaments that look like those candy hearts that are so popular with the kiddos. I bought 1 package and on Sunday we pulled out all of my old beads (I had a huge box full) and we set to work...and quickly got frustrated...the holes in the beads were too small for the elastic thread! Back to the drawing board I went. On Monday I went to Joann's and found some really cute beads that had bigger holes. The only problem I had with them was deciding which ones to get because they were all so pretty! I ended up getting 5 tubes of purple and pink beads. Last night I decided to try making a necklace to see if it worked better before getting the girls involved again. Here is a picture of the finished product. I think it turned out nicely (and it went so quickly that I decided to make a bracelet too!) The little flower on her finger is a nail art sticker. We thought it made cute "rings".
