…that is the question.
While in Florida, Melanie planned a fun Girl’s Day Out. We went to get pedicures in the morning and then picked Cheryl up for an afternoon of beading followed by an evening at an auction in Palm City.
The day before our outing, Melanie and I visited Beads and Baubles to see what classes were available. Beads and Baubles is a quaint shop on 2nd Street in Historic Dowtown Fort Pierce featuring custom designed jewelry, beads, and all the supplies needed to make beautiful beaded jewelry.
While I am not an artisan, I feel confident in my ability to follow directions and to mimic the actions of others. The three of us looked forward to this fun afternoon. Melanie and I planned to make our bracelet and then make one for someone else since we would have enough beads left over.
We arrived early to choose our supplies and to meet our instructor, Stephanie. Let me just say here and now….Stephanie has the patience of a saint because WE WERE A MESS!

|So far so good|
|I got it now!|
While we ate, we discussed the likelihood that upon our return Susan would have locked us out of the shop and she would tell us through the LOCKED door that Stephanie had to leave unexpectedly. As it turned out, Stephanie was still there; what a trooper! She caught us all up so we were all at the same place. Wasn’t that sweet of her?

You may think from this account that we had a horrible time. To the contrary, we had a phenomenal time. We giggled to the point of tears the rest of the week as we reminisced about our ineptitude. It was good for us to laugh at ourselves.
The next evening, we ran into Susan at Bike Night. We all had drinks in our hands and I told Susan we were still drinking from the night before. She apologized for the stress, but we thanked her for the wonderful memory.
I would highly recommend taking a class at Beads and Baubles….just don’t tell them La sent you. They may lock the doors.
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!
