Friday morning when I was supposed to be on the treadmill I quickly put this little necklace together. I still got a half hour in before work, but not a compromise I need to be making this close to my next vacation. :)
Oh well, spilled milk and all that!
I love this little owl friend and cheated a little because I had this great purple chain that worked perfectly with the purple/bronze mirror beads. That made for a very quick turnaround. I am guessing it took about 15 minutes and well worth it! Looked pretty cute with a dark purple blouse.
Coming up at the beginning of July, I'll be sharing a new line of Cousin products, Yay! AND, I would love to get some vacation jewelry done BEFORE our trip, but definitely plan to bring beads with me just in case that doesn't work out.
We're doing a driving vacation this time around...Henry Ford Museum, a night at a casino and then family vacation at a state park lodge. Can't wait for ARTS & CRAFTS every day! Yay, you gotta love a state park that continues to offer such a cool option for kids and adults. A room full of things to paint, glitter and glue AND all the paint brushes, paint colors, hot glue, Elmers you could possibly need & MORE! :)
And now, just in case you are in need of inspiration as the weekend comes to a close, here's a quick peek into some other crafty blogger worlds. Have a great week!
