That Crafty Feeling

Yesterday, I got the crafty feeling. Ya know......where you feel like just crafting something....anything!!! Well, Mom and Dad were asleep, and I was bored (Colt was gone on a youth trip). I thought of all the things I could do to be crafty....sew, crochet, paint, draw, sculpt, ect. Then all the sudden, DING!!!!!! I can make jewelry from the kit my friend, Christina, gave me!!!! So, I sat down to work. Here is the kit before I ripped into it like Christmas (Wink):




Second layer of wrapping paper.....=D.....




I made a bracelet. Here it is:




My Mom got up just as I was finishing it and told me that she and I had to fold some clothes for Colt because she promised him that she would keep the laundry caught up while he was gone. I told her I would take care of the clothes so that she could make a bracelet. At first, she was telling me no, there was a whole dryer full of clothes, but then.....with my cute face on (and a little persistance), I told her I could take care of it and for her to sit, and make. So, she did, and when I was almost done with the clothes, she came in with this little beauty, and she told me it was her gift to me. Thanks, Mom! Love ya! Here it is:
