A few weeks ago we saw a billboard for a “Gem Faire” so we looked it up and decided that we would go check it out. I loved seeing all the rocks, and the girls got really excited about pendants and strings of beads. We didn’t buy any beads, but I did buy a bunch of different pendants. The girls have been wanting to wear necklaces to church, but there aren’t very many for them, which means they keep asking to wear MY necklaces. So this will give them some more options. The boys really liked the giant marbles. Kyle was interested in buying a large glow in the dark marble, until he found out it was just painted with glow in the dark paint. We did end up buying a large rock of banded citrine. We were interested in a couple of other large rocks, but that vendor wanted several hundred dollars for each one. When Kyle asked the price of the citrine and we found out it was only $65 we decided to just go for it. And I just LOVE it. It fits in nicely with the rocks I inherited from Grandma Shirley. 😀
We did buy a couple of smaller rocks from the expensive vendor, simply because they gave so many of the kids free crystals, and we felt bad not buying anything from them. I just didn’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on the big rocks.
I also got a few small crystals that remind me of one of my pendants. It’s my most favorite pendant, because it’s a rock, and I wear it anytime I’m wearing purple, because it’s purple. But today I bought a light blue, a darker blue, an orange and a white crystal, so that I can try to make some more rock pendants. 😀
