Charm Bag

Please note: I’ve quit the job in question. Long story that is incredibly boring. Now on with what I should have posted nearly a month ago.

I feel like all I’ve done since starting this new job is complain about it. Granted, the people I’m working with are nice, but who knew answering phones could be so difficult. Also, someone who shall remain Turkish has skipped the country (to Turkey) and left me all alone with my stress. Between shifts and training and complaining, I did manage to make him a little present before he left. I’m so proud.

I’ve wanted to try my hand at a little amulet type bag for a while. Since I couldn’t be bothered with directions, I made this as I went along. I think it turned out quite well for an experiment. I picked up a hamsa charm while visiting a friend and used a bead for the closure. It needs a little tweaking, but I really liked making it and see more in my future.

Changing gears, what do you guys do for hardcore relaxation? I forgot that I’m not nearly as productive during the dark hours and of course that’s when I’m up now. I think a lot of that is due to stress that I don’t know how to shake. So what do you do when you need to unwind in a hurry?
