Even the tiniest amount of crafty time can result in a positive feeling. Case in point - A trio of tags that I made for keeping track of storage bags in our attic. These storage bags contain similar items but are only used occasionally, and the tags would be handy to figure out which one… Continue reading Storage Bag Tags
While I was on a random Internet 'walk', looking up stuff I'm interested in, and occasionally stumbling upon other interesting stuff, I came across an art bead challenge on Art Elements. The challenge showcased sugar skull lampwork beads made by Jen Cameron from the Art Elements team, and select designers would use the beads in… Continue reading Sugar skull
I made this macramé bracelet using yarn left from my autumn leaf lace top project. I started out with two cords folded in half, which I made into reverse lark's head knots around a jump ring pair.

Considering that I'm just beginning to peep outside my square-knots macramé world and have just started learning new knots, I'm very happy with how this one turned out. Well, this isn't my brain child, though. I followed this neat video tutorial by Macramé School.… Continue reading Wavy macramé bracelet
It's been a long, long time since I used Macramé to make things, so I thought I'd make a beaded bracelet. I had some strong cotton yarn lying around from an old knitting project that I could use for my cords. As for beads to add, my stash had these round, brown wooden beads with… Continue reading Brown beaded macramé bracelet. With a button!
