I know I often make cards, but this was a craft of necessity. My watch band broke a couple of weeks ago and I've been using a ribbon to tie it to my wrist. I saw a link for watch bands by a company called ChunkyBlings. I was going to buy one when I got paid, but then I thought "I can make one myself." Hobby Lobby had beads on sale this week so Saturday/yesterday I got a couple of strands (one on clearance and one that was 50% off the full price - there was a difference, one was "clear" and the other has an iridescence to it [they have a rainbow effect] so I alternated the clear with the others). It turned out to be a little long so it makes the watch itself flop around my wrist.
I was searching for card challenges and I saw this new (to me) challenge blog called Stampin' Sisters in Christ that wanted to see projects with "time pieces. Can't get more of a time piece than a watch. LOL Now I do have some more beads to make bracelets so I'll spend some time making them but I really need to be making more cards...I've got a lot of sketches to take care of.
