Woooo it's been a second. Did everyone have a lovely holiday? I did! I had FIVE days off of work in which my husband and I drove to Northern CA to visit my family for Christmas. We even brought our dogs and they were fantastic travelers. Now we're back and I'm ready to settle into a fabulous 2016.
|One 'refashion' that happened today was taking a little baggie of some mateless earrings and nipping off the posts to make them little 'cabochons'. These will be fun to glue onto future crafts!|
|I strung together a simple pattern. The pictures don't do justice to how bright these orange beads are!|
|Then I took an eye pin and added one of the little orange lozenges...|
|Made a loop on the other end...|
|Finished project! I have really tiny wrists so making bracelets is ALWAYS a good option for me. Maybe I should give this a name... Florida Orange Juice #1. Safety Cone Charm. Any thoughts?|
|But where- Oh THERE it is! The little glass bead adds a bit of interest on the clasp area :) And voila! Two lame non-functional bracelets get married and live happily (and adorably) ever after!|
Don't worry, I have some more sewing projects planned for the future too! But it's fun to mix it up with some baubles. I used to bead things ALL the time in high school; I would spend hours and hours each summer on the floor of my room, listening to the radio and piecing together this and that. If you haven't done any beading in a while, I say give it another try!
Until next time!
