The "With Me All Day" Pendant

 Summer is officially over for us. Tomorrow is the first day back to school. While the excitement is running high, I noticed today there is a bit of nervous bugs biting, as well. I didn't want to stomp on the happy parade and talk way too much, so instead I asked Em to make me a necklace to wear while she was at school. I told her I might be a little sad after spending all summer together (complete truth!) and that a little reminder of her would help me. Before she even got started with mine she asked if I would make her one, too. Of course I will, my sweet girl, of course.

This is the one she made for me. I love it. We used oven dry clay and our hands! Before we popped them into the oven we added a small hole using a toothpick. They baked at 275 degrees for about 15 minutes. When cooled we just threaded onto a piece of twine and had our sweet pendants ready for tomorrow.
I think this will definitely help me get through those first few days.

  5. What a wonderful idea!! I wish I had thought of it. I let my daughter wear my necklace (a cross) that I wear every day. It seemed to help that day at least. Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!
