What I did this weekend

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.

Love the watch band. You know you CAN add beads to your cards too! There are egs on Splitcoaststampers, I'm sure. If not, oh shoot, there goes the memory thing's ?Village and they do a lot of How To videos on Utube. Anyways they show egs. Good luck using up the beads:)
