Things have been busy and stressful. But we are all making it though. I think we have the worst of it behind us now! Thank goodness!
My boys are always wanting me to make them something. So, I found this idea about penny necklaces. You take a penny drill a hole in it and put an image on it, seal it, and put a jump ring though it. Done. When we were on vacation Ben had gotten a box of Milwaukee Brewers cookies. I saved the box.
Here is the necklace using the cookie box and a penny!
The boys love them! Next time, I would thin the cardboard out some. GO BREW CREW!
A few days a go I got a text from my SIL Tracey– sent you an email for this awesome bracelet! Of course, I had to check it out ASAP! Let me tell you, the bracelet is gorgeous! Today, I was I am at hobby lobby to get the supplies (as Tracey is texting me the progress of her bracelet- it was stunning). They did not have size 5 seed beads, Tracey said she got size 6 seed beads and size 6 jump. rings. So, that is what I did too!
Another thing that I varied from the tutorial is I did not use waxed linen cord, I used DMC memory thread (I am truly in love with this stuff). Tracey said she used 1 mm leather cord. Used what you like best!
Here is my bracelet: Ice Arm Candy
GORGEOUS, right? So easy too! Seriously even if you don’t bead you can make this! It would be fun and cheap Girl’s night in project too!
Tomorrow, I will be back to tell you all about what I got from my bead soup partner and what I sent her! Stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping in! Enjoy your day!
