The other day while scanning my craft blogs I ran across the cutest bracelet and decided I wanted to make it. Now I had never done this before but I thought what the hey, it turned out cute if I do say so...
double wrapped beaded bracelet
Then I decided to make some matching earrings
I don't have holes in my ears so I do clipons
The whole set
Since this was my first time making these I
just bought some regular wooden beads to see
how it would turn out. The next one
will be more stunning.
I already have one order :)
I had a wedding to go to on Saturday, so on Tuesday I washed my hair and did a braid out everyday so it could be stretched by the big day cause I was going to do a cute style all pinned up and what not...so I thought. I bought the hair pins and got to working, the wedding started at 6 and it was around 4:30 when I started. No I did not have plenty of time, do we women ever have plenty of time. Had to get kids to sitter and still get dressed. Hubby left at 4:45 to drop girls off so I started pinning: first style, second style, third style, none of the styles were working. For starters it is humid here and the humidity just had my hair a poofy
mess, nothing was helping my hair and I was afraid to add any hair lotion for fear of more frizz. Frustration was setting in now. Hubby calls at 5:15, he was on the way home and my hair still wasn't done, what to do. So guess what I did? Got one of my good stretch bands, wrapped it around my neck, and Viola, a hair style...
There are those thin sides I was
talking about, still working on them.
Still got compliments with this style though :)
