WINDOW-SHOPPING

My husband has been working a lot of late hours, and when he has been at home, he has either been working on a presentation, or doing tele/computer-conferences. His church calling has also taken him away at least once a week inthe past few weeks. This has resulted in me being home. All. Alone. For. Hour. And. Hours. I am just not much of a tv watcher. I have lots of movies with me, but haven't really felt like delving into those. So to fill up my time I've been walking, cleaning, surfing the internet, window-shopping the internet, and blogging. I've talked to a few family members via either Skype or IM, and I've also used my Skype to make a few doctor & dentist appointments for December. (Still have 2 more appointments to make.) I've also been playing my "organ" keyboard. I tried playing my violin and broke a string. :0+
One really fun website I've found is http://www.chamilia-charms.com. I don't know if you've ever heard of Pandora bracelets, but if you have Chamilia is kind of like those, only I think they have cuter beads and charms. On this website you get to "build" your own bracelet. When you finish, it tells you how much your bracelet would cost. Hang onto your hat. $$$$$$ Mine was over $500. :0) But they are SOOOO cute! Check it out! These bracelets are really popular here in Ireland. I see them in EVERY jewelry store and jewelry counter I pass. The cool thing about them is you buy the bracelet, then buy how ever many beads or charms. The beads and charms are usually about $30 apiece. So you could even just start with one. Then when you get more $, you go buy another one. Some people might buy a charm to go with some event in their life. A new baby? Buy the baby-buggy charm, or the little girl or boy stick figure charm, etc. You get the picture. Fun, Fun!

You should try doing name extraction. You do it online, and they give you files to work on. Then you submit your work online when you are done.

I LOVE that bracelet! I was wanting to ask you to teach me how to make jewelry next time we are together. Also...what was it that you told me you could put on your face to dry up problem spots? I've been wracking my brain but can't remember. I was thinking preparation H, but didn't think that was right. LOL

Well, it was definitely not Preparation H! Use clearisil and Neosporin (together). :0)

I hear you about being home alone. I am home alone a lot, especially during fire season when Dee Ice is gone for 3 weeks at a time.

Those bracelets are cute. I like how you can drag the bead and place it.
I'll have to go back!

Yeah those bracelets are pretty cool.

Delirious said...

The clearsil and neosporin...is that what you told me about when I last saw you? You told me about something the Doctor said to dry up spots...I thought it was something different. I might be confused though. lol

Nene said...

Delirious, If it wasn't clearisil and neosporin, then I can't remember.

Delirious said...

How did you get the view of the finished bracelet that you posted here?

Nene said...

I found it on some jewelery site. You right-click and copy the picture and save it, then upload it in your post. If you go to the Chamilia site and "build a bracelet", unfortunately you can't copy the picture of the bracelet you've built. :0( I wish you could and then I'd have a side-bar section of the bracelet of the week that I've built. :0)

The jeweler near my office was trying to sell me a Pandora one the other day. When he told me $30-$50 per charm, I about choked! lol :) I'd want mine to look like this one you have on your blog! lol
