Good Monday everyone! Today is my last post on Texas Women Bloggers, so it’s a little sad, but it’s also a fun tutorial on how to make your own ribbon & pearl bracelet, so it’s also quite exciting! Here’s a snippet, feel free to have a looksie here for the whole tutorial!
…I don’t know about you, but I drive my sweetie crazy with all the trips to the craft stores I go on just to get supplies I already have at home — my reasoning is sound, though! It’s not the right colour, the right size…the excuses go on…! However, in the spirit of being “thrifty” & trying not to spend money on things I don’t need — (I have 3 hot glue guns because I kept finding them on sale & forgetting where I had put my last one)– I decided that I would use what I had from my scraps & bits & bobs to create something just lovely! I’ve wanted to make more jewelry lately, so I decided to try my own version of the neat pearl & ribbon…
Make sure to check out that tutorial! It’s pretty rad! ;D
As for CheekyGeeks, however, I have some VERY EXCITING NEWS!! Next month is going to be SPECIALLY THEMED…are you ready for this?? It’s officially going to be called Geek Month! Each week will have a different theme, & they will be as follows:
