Awhile back, I made several bracelets, hoping to create something for my sister's birthday. I really like making bracelets because it is so difficult to find bracelets to fit my wrist. Do you have that problem? If you have a smaller-than-average or larger-than-average wrist size, most bracelets won't fit.
The only way is to make them yourself, which of course, I love to do.
In my day job, I run a volunteer program. I recently whipped up this adorable, easy birthday gift for a volunteer. It's just the right size for a little birthday gift for a volunteer. Here are the details on putting this cutie together.
Supplies: wooden baskets, boxwood garland, lace, satin ribbon. Just add a piece of boxwood garland to a wooden basket, pop a mini farm-scented candle (got mine at Bath & Body Works) in there and wrap it all up in lace. That's it!
As soon as Spring comes and flowers start blooming, I immediately become mildly obsessive about taking photos of every colorful flower I see. They aren't very good photos and the flowers look like any other flower but I just can't help myself. The in-person experience of seeing a previously brown, dead space now bursting with color is really beautiful and the photos are a feeble attempt at capturing that feeling.
When it comes to jewelry, I love many styles but I have a particular soft spot for the boho, eclectic look. I usually make necklaces in that style so I decided to make earrings this time. Let's get started!
I don't usually get mushy in public or on social media. However, this month is my three-year anniversary with my husband and love is on my mind. So I'll just say - I hope each of you feels full of love and happiness! It's such a great thing to be in a good place in life, a place full of love. And a huge part of getting to that place is (to be cliche) loving yourself, which encompasses a lot of things - giving yourself room to breathe when you do something that is less-than-desirable, feeling confident in your decisions, trying new things, reminding yourself that you are good and lovely...
I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I'm feeling good about how I am loving myself right now and I want to share that with you. I made this little heart print to remind you to take a little time to love yourself and others with extra intent.
