DIY necklace and other good ideas

So. I can't do home projects til we move.. and we're still looking for a house (or leaning more towards building now since things are not working out). So I've been scrounging in the depths of my brain for other ways to use some creativity!...
This summer I became super infatuated with geode/agate/rock anything, especially jewelry. I love the following look for necklaces. Note the prices k?

Anthropologie $798(!!!)

anthro again $58.. not terrible

etsy $48

urban outfitters $34

So I think to myself, hmmm I wonder if they sell just slices of those rocks to make your own necklace cuz that would sure be cheaper! So I did some research.
Behold
Amazon!! These bad boys are $17 for all 6! And the hole is already drilled in them
I made 2 yesterday! I had some old necklaces laying around that I hardly wear anymore so I busted out the pliers, took off the chain, and voila!
                 Cost: $2.83 each =)

Here's some other random GREAT ideas I've stumbled upon this week:
My stepmom Aimee has 5 children, ages 6 and under. Needless to say, things in her house don't exactly stay how they should! 
Apparently the hand towels in the bathroom would end up on the counter, on the floor, in the toilet.
Her solution? Sew on some ribbon and tie the ends... you can dry your hands but the towel is STAYING!
Genius
 Saw this on pinterest as you may have too... Homemade, freezeable, healthier Egg Mcmuffins!!
Cook the eggs in muffin tins, assemble the sandwiches and freeze em! For the full how-to, check my pin


 Cute and easy way to dress up-flats... tie a ribbon around your foot~!
 Love this idea... spray paint coffee beans and use as a vase filler. I love the metallic!
 Found this in a mag while waiting at the dentists office... fill a vase with SEQUINS! The water lets some float, some sink, and the sequins lend some sparkle.   Love =)
