Coins and Paper Beads to Welcome the New Year

Posted on Dec 31, 2009 in Paper Bead Creations | Comments Off on Coins and Paper Beads to Welcome the New Year

My mother was a superstitious woman, she believed that what you do in the first day of the New Year determines what you do the rest of the year.  She made sure that we have coins in our pockets for example, and wear something with circles to symbolize money.  I always think about her mostly around this time, because she was a frugal person, she loves the thrift store and anything used or second hand.  I was at Joann’s Fabric the other day and these coin charms caught my eye.  I thought I would love to ring in the New Year with lots of coins and paper beads as a constant reminder to be thrifty, reuse and recycle.  I mixed olive shaped paper beads with the coin charms ($2.95) and some left over turquoise chips, the result is something like Cleopatra would have worn.  I put it on and I love the clinking sound of the coin charms just perfect way to usher in the New Year.







May the New Year (2010) will bring you good health, good fortune and happiness!  Happy New Year!
