It’s Pinteresting!

So I must admit that I haven’t been blogging as much as I like. First, I have been in a terrible funk.  I imagine that is a struggle with symptoms and a struggle with being home without my beloved Arnold.  I sleep better when I am with him, he is great at helping me with pain control and he just keeps my spirits up.  Second, I have become addicted to Pinterest! If you are looking for someone interesting to follow: I am totally addicted and need a pintervention!!
So I will say that I have found some great pins on their with amazing tutorials.  A few days ago, based on the pins that I found I made some great bracelets.
I am in love with the bright colors I chose for the bracelets. It only took a few hours to make all 5 of these and I am ready to make some more!! Here is the green yellow and pink bracelet pin.  Here is the blue and orange wrap bracelet pin.
These colors are perfect since summer will be here before we know it.  I love having a lot of variety with my jewelry and I hate to spend loads of money on something that can be so seasonal. I made all five of these for a fraction of what it would cost to buy one of the new boutique bracelets that are so popular now.
I have also started a special project, inspired by pinterest, for my dear darling.  He knows I have something up my sleeve but I have yet to tell him what it is.
