I've been using Pinterest a
little A LOT this holiday seeking out fun projects for my art students. You'd think I'd be awesome at holiday projects for kids. But I'm not. I have a complete brain fart issue with things like this. Crafty cute holiday type projects that is. But I do have an ability to look at ideas and just run with them. That's good since most of the Pinterest ideas are just eye candy that you have to figure out how to do on your own. Anyhoo....whilst borrowing amazing ideas for my art students I found this bracelet:
And then there's Mailey. Who after seeing my first bracelet was like, "Mom, you gotta teach me that!" So we spent Saturday night on the floor in front of the fire making stuff together. It was wonderful way to end our Mother-Daughter day. We'd already been to the Nutcracker earlier in the day.
Here's her first attempt:Bead Shop. The clip board is good, but if she is going to keep this up we gotta have the right tools. All her teachers are receiving these for Christmas gifts. Awesome right?
I hope to get the clip board back soon so I can make a few with a more random pattern like Ali's. I'm also wondering if my stamped ID tags could ladder into the design. Oh how my wheels are turning. Pinterest you are just like a treasure hunt. You never know what you'll find buried under all the sand!
