It's time for another installment of
Auntie P Craftathon!

I've been a bit MIA this past week because I've had a horrid stomach bug.  I'm back among the living and getting back into the blogging swing of things.

As you all know, last month, Auntie P came to visit.  We had a week long marathon of all things creative sprinkled in with copious amounts of laughter. 
It was amazeballs.

One of the first projects we tackled was this super easy beaded bracelet.

Happy Hour Projects: Beaded "Love" Bracelet
Adrianne's instructions were so easy to follow.
We bought our beads at Hobby Lobby and found the clasps, cord, and silver accents at Michaels. 
We had a terrible time finding the clasps you stick the cording into, but we did eventually find some in a little kit at Michaels. 

We thought this would be a good craft to take over to Sis' house since Grant needed to go to bed around the time the VP debate was starting.
After a delicious dinner made my Chris, Uncle Dana and Chris sat down to watch the debate...
 ...and us ladies sat down to craft while listening to the debate.
Despite the serious looks on their faces, we were having a lit of fun.
We all love how they turned out!

Now, you know I always share the misadventures.
Though this project was a success, it had several misadventure moments when it came to gluing the cording into the clasp.
I initially glued my fingers together.
Initially, panic set in.
After that, I grabbed my phone to snap a picture.
Yeah, Auntie P laughed at me...until she glued her bracelet to her finger!
...AND...the glue to her other finger!
I come by my misadventure talents naturally.

These would make wonderful holiday gifts.
Now, go make some!

  4. Keeping a clean and organized home is not difficult. It does however require a fair amount of commitment and consistency. A dirty home if left to fester soon becomes very difficult to clean. Before long you aren't inviting friends over and at the end of a long day you are starting to dread the journey home. click here to read more

  5. The first home improvements you should consider are repair moves. Attend to any ceiling repair problems, the plumbing job you have been putting off or that attic insulation that has become necessary. Air tool resource
