~eclectic beaded bracelets~

 I've been making a lot of bracelets like this lately:
 Totally from scratch with beads and notions
that I have in my stash. I love pairing the 
beads and figuring out the best ways to arrange
them on the bracelet. Check them all out:   

 This green toned bracelet ended up being one
of my favorites but I sold it. 
Maybe I'll make another for me.

Also made another batch of these to sell:

I've made a new favorite set of earrings too.
I'll show you those in a day or two.

~valentines for schoolmates & teacher~

 The valentines we ended up doing for my son's
class weren't any of the ideas I listed before.
I needed something fast, easy and cheap.
I found a free printable from Positively Splendid
and went with that. Check them out:
     You too can print these for free by clicking (here). 

This is what we did for his teacher: 
 As you can see, I made her a heart wire bracelet and
we traced his hand to attach it to.
I had him decorate it with stickers and sign it.

Now that it's done I think the proper way to say it
would have been "stolen my heart".....
but when I write that again it still doesn't seem right.  
What is it?   

However the proper way to say it may be....
I'm sure she gets the meaning behind it.

Are you done with your valentines?
Now I'm working on my family cards.
I'll share those later this week.
