Yeah so that's a corny post title but I can't be entertaining all the time. ;)
Back on our last trip to Disney I found this bracelet. I thought it was pretty & would add a nice pop of color to a basic outfit. Nearby I found one that was all white & picked that up too (you can see a peek of it in the corner there). What I loved about it was that you wrap the strands of beads around your wrist. It was just plain fun. (yes I realize how boring my life must sound like)
I loved the bracelets & wore them every chance I got (not like I really go anywhere, mind you). While showing them to my sister, Chet, one night, she was bouncing it like a slinky & the multi-colored one broke. Younger sisters never outgrow breaking your things. ;) I figured I could find something at Michael's to fix it & gathered up all the pieces.
At some point I found another, similar bracelet at Pier One. I wasn't sure about getting it since I had one in white, but I talked myself into it since it was pearls mixed with black. See how pretty?
Later on, I obviously fixed the multi-colored one, but then I started seeing the possibilities of what I could make too. Apparently, once you make one, you feel like you should make them in every color. The reason there are just four? Michael's selection of beads is just ok. ;)
Seriously, they are such a quick thing to make, that I made them during homework time. The girls & I sit at the kitchen table, they do homework, I make pretty things. It's a complete win-win situation.
