Down on the Boardwalk

I really love the textures and colors of these string bracelets...casual and perfect for summer, they remind me of the summer at my grandma's farm when my cousin Melanie taught me how to macrame tie on wore them until they fell off! ;-)

Hello Summer!

 I forgot to take a "before" just imagine it "dark brown" ..this was a really fun project that I had been in my head for a long time and I finally got around to it.
I bought it for $30 about 12 years ago and used one of those leather kits on it . I was so sick of it but decided to give it a new life..and I'm so glad I did, it looks brand new!
My little boy is growing up!
He is 4 years old now..and finished his first year of pre-school...its an exciting time!

And I am starting to feel something that I have not felt in a long time...creativity.
Its slowly creeping back into my body..
For a long time I felt bogged down by the new task of taking care of another little human. Yes I know I only have one as people love to remind me...but I'm 45 not 25 and one is more than I ever had!
But now as he is getting more independent I think maybe more of "me" is coming back.
Well I made this bracelet today so thats a good sign!
