Sorry I've been missing in action! I've been incredibly busy as I have less than a month before we move! I try to pop on when I can - but if you don't see me around as much that is why!
In the last couple of weeks I have taken my girls to Bisque n Beads - a paint-you-own-pottery and bead store. Seeing all the beads reminded me of two bracelets that I bought nearly six years ago. They were "Mommy and Me" bracelets - one for me and one for Kailani. Eventually the clasp broke off of mine and I never fixed it. While I've taken a couple of classes in beading I'm no guru with beads. I ended up putting it into a box and forgetting about it...until I went into the bead store.
On my last visit to the store I decided to buy what I needed to fix the bracelet. Funny how when I first bought the bracelet I thought it was the most amazing thing, but now that I know some of the basics to beading I found a lot of little "mistakes" and boy did it irk me. So I decided while fixing it I would also change it up a little.
I thought it was only right to add Momo's name to it. I wanted to do a double strand but I really like the big round beads and having two rows of it would be a bit much. It was only after I finished the bracelet that I realized I was missing a spacer bead between the "M" and the "O".
*Sigh* It'll do for now. Actually it'll do until I go back to the store to pick up our pottery! Then I'll pick out some more beads and make it the way I really want it!
