This Weekend At Home Creating Bracelets With A Twist!

This Weekend At Home Creating Bracelets With A Twist!
It's the weekend, and I can not think of no better project than creating bracelets at home. So, today I thought I would jump onto the blog with a little weekend babble that will definitely set your soul on fire. 
This morning I wanted to get up and hit the mall and maybe see if some of our local markets were open on today. But, now I decided to mute my phone, but my computer down for sleep and make arm candy bracelets until I wore myself out.

This Weekend At Home Creating Bracelets With A Twist!
Let's just say I may have been thinking way too hard about nothing. So, after I turned off everything, I was able to start crafting and doing what really brought me absolute joy. Could it be we all need something to do other than working our 9-5 or sitting on the computer mindlessly surfing? Just to discover there is nothing new hardly on the web Honestly, I think it's time to start something new or at least do something that is out of the box. 

One of my favorite things to do is pull out my bead box and start making things. Now, I have a better idea, I plan to make more videos to go along with my hobby. Let's just say I need to get up and stop playing around with my gifts and talents. Besides, I have something I want to share with the world. And I am learning you have to get up and encourage yourself.:) 

This Weekend At Home Creating Bracelets With A Twist!
So, today I've pulled out every bead and charm I had stashed in my closet. I have something to say and share, so why not get up and stay up. 2020 has to shown me a whole new outlook on and about life. There is so much more than just sitting around doing nothing and waiting on something to happen. 

Question: What is your passion? The essence of who you are and want to become.

It is no secret I love jewelry, and that has never changed even when I stop creating for a while. My life has been booked and busy, and that is about to change so I can see life and all it has to offer more clearly. Social distancing has gotten me to thinking about other things to do when it comes to my crafts.

Making jewelry is easy, and I am often asked about each piece I wear. If I could tell any woman about my story, it will definitely be during my bead making time. Because that is when I am feeling more relaxed and carefree from the world.

I find that I love sharing each idea and my crazy style with those who inquire.  

Today I tuned the world out so I could make sense of my next two steps as the year goes by.

And one thing I can tell you having a hobby outside of work is so mind refreshing. This year I will be taking another type of jewelry class as soon as Michael's craft store offers one.

I want to learn more about pewter and metals so I can create more unique items to wear. Oh, don't worry, I have a few tricks up my sleeves for the remainder of the year 2020.

One thing I am the happiest about right now is that all my local craft stores are open. I can spend hours walking around the jewelry sections of Hobby Lobby and Michaels. You already know I stay up and current on any sales when it comes to grabbing some really cool beads.

Fun Fact: Saturday's before the store closes is the best time to shop. There are a lot more markdowns, and it's super quiet, so there is no rush.

Two weeks ago, I bought a bead tray to hold all my materials, such as transparent stretch cord, needle nose pliers, jump rings, and other things.

Now, when it comes to making the bracelets I am wearing, you will need only three things. Your beads of choice, look for items that fit your style. Do you like glass or wood beads? Also, I use a strong stretchy cord, jump rings, and lots of charms.

Everything I use comes from my local craft store. I will only order wholesale if I plan on selling them.  

My larger bracelets come from my local thrift store during my thrift snooping trips. :)

I will have a video listed below so you can see my full work in progress. 

In conclusion: That focus today is getting back on track with my first love (crafting) and blogging all about it. Oh, and possibly making videos as well. No matter what happens, I will be doing what brings me the most joy, and that is all I will be putting out into the world.

That's my bracelet story with a twist:)

What are your hobbies? Cooking, Decorating Cakes, styling Clothes, Eating Seafood all day. Whatever it is, find that sweet spot that will bring you all joy and happiness. 

That now completes my weekend.

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
