Crafting with daughter

My daughter wanted to do some crafting with me and I thought it was not a good idea for her to work with the hot wax to make candles.  I took a beading class and crimping class at Michaels.  I also watched a lot of videos on Youtube.  I think I gained more information and learned a lot more from Youtube than I did at Michaels.  

My daughter and I started out making some zipper pulls together.  Some are listed on my artfire page,  Now she is more interested in making other pieces of jewelry.  So far, we have made some earrings, bracelets and necklaces.  I admit some of them are fairly basic while some are a little more elaborate.  My daughter will pick out the colors or we both will, then she will string them on the wire and I will crimp the beads and create the loops.  Some of these earrings will end up on my artfire page.  My daughter has already asked me to list them for her.  She wants to make some money to get a dog, lizard, frog, snake, and a few other animals (before you ask, yes she loves these kinds of animals).  I figured this is a good way to teach her about money and spend some time with her.  Ok, I admit, I'm doing it to spend more time with her.  :  )

This is a picture of one of the zipper pulls we have made.  This is listed on my arfire page.  What do you think?
