Making bracelets… show your interests!

Okay, I just got tired of waiting. I have been working on the big project which was going to be the cornerstone of this blog, but I am still about a week from getting the final hardware and glass shelves. So I thought I’d go ahead and post some of the smaller projects I have already completed.

I have been doing projects pretty much all my life, but had taken some time off for the last 12 years or so to concentrate on quilting. From time to time, I will throw some of those into this blog where I have photos. I have given away most I have made and have asked only for photos of the recipient with the quilt as ‘payment’. The best payback is to know that they are loved and used and appreciated.

I will add one more note to the beginning of this blog to say that this go ’round with diy’ing and crafts have been kicked off by this lovely website called I wish I could claim participation, of any kind, with that website, but alas, I cannot. I  am but one of many of its diehard fans.

So, one thing I always wanted to get involved in is jewelry creating. But since I rarely wear jewelry myself, it had to be something that really spoke to me. So when I saw the first button bracelet, I knew I needed at least one of those. I now have two.

Here is the first one I created, based on the one I saw on pinterest:

Based on this one, I did blue buttons. I tried to choose the color that was in the same shade as denim:

Next, I started looking through my collection of ‘stuff’ for other things to use and came across Monopoly wood houses that I have had left over from my Monopoly token collecting days:

What next? Well, it would have to be my obsession with Scrabble. I purchased a Scrabble letter “J” necklace last year and thought it wonderful. Then I found mini-Scrabble tiles (about 1/2 inch square). They are adorable. I actually wore this to work last week. Got rave reviews.

So that is it for today. I think I need to work on my photo skills though. The lighting was awfully yellow.

Thanks for stopping by,
