I watched Alyssa, Angel and Tyler last week for a few hours, so decided it would be fun to do a craft with them! Saw this on Pinterest, so bought everything and painted the sticks before going over. All the kids had to do with glue the sticks together, punch out the stars and then decide if they wanted magnets on the back or a ribbon to hang them. I think they turned out pretty good and the kids had fun!

because we are only going to be in Hawaii for seven days, and I now have five sets of Barefoot Sandals. They are really fun to make, even though they take a while and are fairly expensive. I mostly use glass beads, but found some Ivory beads at JoAnn's the other day that I liked - - they looked "Hawiian". :D Here's the newest set - I also made some earrings and a necklace to match! These are not totally stretchy, so I had to use other jewelry items I've had around since I made the jewelry for the cruise in 2009.
The sandals on - please pardon my dirty feet - I worked in the garden this morning and hadn't taken a shower yet.
The other set is black and off-white. I also made earrings to match it. I only had silver lobster claws, so need to get some gold ones to match.
Aren't they pretty sitting in my new chest?
I bought it at an Estate Sale for $10.00!!! I haven't figured out yet what I'm going to do with it. Tossing around the idea of painting it black, then detailing gold on it somehow. For now it's just sitting on the floor in the office (which is getting very full!!!),
I also made one more four-section cosmetic bag. This one turned out much better than the first! The corners are matched up and I made the space around the zipper wider so more things will fit in it.
This one is being purchased by someone at work (who asked me to see if I could make it). I'm going to fix the first one I made and use it myself, then I've decided I'm not making any more! They are just too time-consuming and very aggravating trying to get everything matched up.
Enjoy the photos!!! I still have a few more things I've been wanting to make, but Todd will be home for a few days this week (hopefully he'll be home tomorrow - he left June 11!!!) So keep checking back for new posts!!!
