The crafting bug hit me today but not for scrapbooking or card making. I was inspired to try out a few of the craft and do-it-yourself ideas that I have been pinning on my Pinterest boards.
This bracelet is from a tutorial that can be found here and you can also buy the kits to make them from her blog. I did get one of the bracelet kits (makes two bracelets and I got light blue and brown) but realized that with my small wrists and arms that they would easily slip off. So off I went to Michael's to see if I could find a smaller sized bracelet and I also picked up some bamboo cord as I liked the colors it came in more than the hemp. Here is the smaller bracelet started in green and I will also make a navy blue one. I decided not to add the jewels to these.
I used the square of cork that I have been using as a top on a basket that I turned into a table that sits next to my lounging and TV watching chair in my scrap room. I love how finished it looks now. Think I may tackle the round cork pot rests that we have in the kitchen next.
I have a few more projects that I will be working on over the next week or two and of course I will share the results as I complete them.
