I made the above picture box and I have to say that I think it turned out pretty darn cute. A good friend of mine makes these "signatures" for people and she taught me how to do it. I have done basic ones for a while now, but I just learned how to make the charm bracelets like you see above.
Here's another one I did for a friend of mine who has 2 Rottweilers:
And here's another one I will have at the bottom of this blog...at least for a while:
I'm working on right now using photos of Jay & the kids for a family bracelet.
There is a place with different forums and I help moderate at one of them (and know Carla from a different one) and people put pictures & graphics up at part of their "signature" each time they post, and as I said, I learned how to make those a couple of years ago, but the charm bracelets are a fun new challenge.
For me it's all about ways to help when I'm feeling stressed. I can take a few minutes, sit at the computer and work on assembling the bracelets (I even have a few that I have made "sparkle"), or I can work on making new signatures.
What do you like to do when you only have a few minutes and you need to unwind or de-stress?
