Easy Peasy Inspiration Bracelets

***UPDATE*** Before continuing with this post,  I wanted to tell you that I have a new blog home.  I'd love for you to visit (all my old posts are there, along with brand new ones), and subscribe over there, since I can't transfer my subscribers over for some reason.  If you decide to follow, leave me a comment so I can thank you...and follow back if you have a blog!  Also, I'm trying to convince the hubs that this IS a real job, so I need all the followers I can get! Thanks so much... 

DSC_0005Isn’t this a fun little bracelet?  Guess where I saw the idea?  Yep, Pinterest.  They take literally a few minutes to make, and are a perfect little accent for your crafty friends.

The silver beads are from Michaels and come in a package of 10, with “create",”believe,” and “hope” on them.  To make the bracelet, cut three strands of embroidery floss to about 12” and thread one of them through a bead.  Wrap the other two strands around either side, and tie knots to hold them in place.  Braid each side of the bead, tie a knot at the end, and you’re finished.

See, I told you it was quick and easy!

My hooligans have YMCA camp this week, so I was all alone for the first time in what seems like forever!  I spent the day shopping at the outlet mall (where I actually bought some shoes, shirts, and books for myself, in addition to things for everyone else) and checking out some small town knitting and pottery stores.

All in all, a very fun, if not productive day…but everyone needs a little me time now and then, right?  Hope you’re finding some time for whatever rejuvenates you!


  1. Oh, that sounds absolutely heavenly. "Me time"--what a concept! I'm so glad you got a day to refresh yourself--refilling the ol' bucket now and then is so important. Course you realize you avid fans will now expect even bigger and better from ya, right? Oh boy, I can hardly wait!

    Love the cute bracelet. I've seen those beads, but couldn't come up with an idea for the life of me. Sigh, what's that I said about empty buckets?

    1. Way to put the pressure on, Kathy! Although I can see the light at the end of the "summer vacation" tunnel, so my creativity may bounce back after Labor Day!
