The list is actually coming along pretty well. I have #12 gone rollerblading, although it was on a tiny slippery course on a cruise ship and hope to do some proper rollerblading. It was fun to get a feel for what it's like. I have also #26 maintaining a perpetual calendar and technically I went to Grand Cayman which was #32 travel somewhere new, although I would still like another new place and to be able to stay there for a bit to experience that place. I am also enjoying #19, make things and give them away. I get Athleta catalogs in the mail, I don't think I've ever bought anything from them, but I like to look, and I particular like their jewelry, although usually way out of my budget. They had these neat wrap bracelets that I just loved loved loved, until I looked at the price. $160 for string and beads. boo. So I decided to make my own.

They aren't exactly the same, I used hemp for the cording part, found a YouTube video for a head start how to and then just sort of tried it. The first one I made was the pink shell one, I've been wearing it for a while to see if there were any design flaws that would make it fall apart. It seems to be holding up so I got more beads and made some more. Soon all but the well worn prototype will have a new home.
