Balloons and Bracelets

I wanted to go to movie night at the Berry Farm yesterday. Sitting on a quilt watching a movie on the side of a barn eating blueberries sounds like heaven to me. But as you can imagine, it sounds like hell for Bill. So I didn't force him to go. Insert big SIGH here.

HOWEVER, if I can get my kids up early enough tomorrow morning I'm taking them to the berry farm to see the hot air balloons take off. Granted, we have to be there by 7am. This should be fun and make for a good photo opp. I really wish I had a DSLR camera. Going to ask for one for my birthday. Or from Santa.

For Day 4, I followed this tutorial to make braided bracelets, the 2 finger version.  I just used an old grey jersey t-shirt as scraps. I made one loose and the other tight to get a different effect for each. These turned out really cute I think. Anytime I have some extra fabric scraps laying around, I'll make more. After cutting the strips, the weaving only took about 5 minutes. I'd say 10-15 minutes total for the entire project.

And throwing in one more picture of my outfits from my trip to Florida last month.


  1. Wow you're on a roll with this creative thing. Can I also add I like your shoes in the third from the left segment of the second picture!

  2. I decided Im going to copy you and make one of these too. I just finised days 4 and 5 last night. I have to get caught up!

  3. Also, I love your outfits. Scarves and sunglasses are your signature look!
