For the last few months, Tuesday nights have been reserved for our at-home Financial Peace University courses with Dave Ramsey. I call it our Date with Dave, and have a sort of love/hate relationship with it. I love getting on the same page w/ J as far as our finances go, especially since we were raised with drastically different views on money. But I'm a morning person, and by 6 p.m. my brain and patience are absolutely fried. It takes every ounce of discipline I have to sit down at 8 p.m. and devote my precious free time to listening to Dave drone on and on, no matter how much I agree with him.
This time, I gathered up some old necklaces and jewelry findings and decided to cannibalize them to make something new. I figured the creativity would take a bit of the sting out of losing my evening to Dave. ;)
Obviously, it was evening and I was already multitasking, so I dropped the ball when it came to taking before or in-progress photos, but here is a great tutorial on necklace making. I still have quite a bead stash, so I'm sure I'll be making more.
Do you handle finances with your spouse, or do one of you naturally take charge? I'm surprised at how much I had to let go of control in order to budget together. :) Jewelry making is so much more fun!
