My mom gave me a bunch of little jars she'd saved. I wrapped one in this cool coloured thread/floss I found buried in my 'Needlework' box, and then decorated the lid.
I also tried my hand at homemade coloured sand. Due to my hesitance to believe this would work well, I only experimented with making red and blue. I'm not terribly crazy about it.
But it ended up looking cool with plain sand as patriotic sand-art.
My friend Marsha pinned what we are calling a 'toe sling' on Pinterest. I told her I could easily make one for her and here it is. The large loop goes around the ankle and the bottom one goes around the second toe. It looks like a sandal without the sole. The large blue bead sits at the front of the ankle.
I had all these cool sparkly rhinestone things and nothing to do with them. So I grabbed a dark blue piece of cardstock, splattered it with white paint, then glued the jewels on, using the biggest ones to make a spiral galaxy.
A few years ago, I bought 6' of this decorative beaded and sequined ribbon, but I forgot all about it till the other day, so I made a large amulet bag with some of it. It's about 3" wide. This is the back.
And the front. I added the beaded edging, bottom loops and strap.

This was also in the same little box with the blue ribbon. It's 2.5" wide.
And my award from Abracadebra Designs arrived too! I began reading it on the deck one gorgeous day and my brain is already thinking about how I can incorporate knotting into the crafts I do.
Funfetti cake I made for Mother's Day over at Sharon's house. It was nummy.
