A Basket, A Bracelet and a Winner!!

Hellooooo Friends! I hope you are having a fabulous week. I know I am! I started my new job this week and I am really liking it...yes, I know it has only been a few days...but sometimes you just know ! :) 
I would like to thank everyone who entered the giveaway for the $25 Hobby Lobby gift card.  I really appreciate everyone who has supported me, my friends, my family, my blog friends, my new friends...:)  Welcome to all my new friends! I am so happy you are here! Thank you!! And the winner is........ :)  Congratulations Barbie!!!!" rel="nofollow">a Rafflecopter giveaway

So first let me show you my blanket basket.  I started by thrifting (of course!) my basket.  I paid $3 for it at my favorite thrift store. Then I picked the little wood frame up at Hobby Lobby when it was half off. I paid less than $1 for it. :)
I painted the outside of the frame turqoise.
Then I added my handy dandy most favorite stuff ever aka chalkboard paint to the inside of the frame.  I put some brown yarn through those holes, and attached it to my basket. My cute little basket cost less than $4 total. Yayyyy!
I like. :)
The second thing I whipped up this week was a knock-off Pandora bracelet that I saw at Happy Hour Projects.  Adrianne has an awesome blog filled with great tutorials and lots of cute jewelry ideas.  When I saw THIS bracelet I knew I wanted to make one!
These were my supplies
 Sorry about the fuzzy-far away pic, I don't know what happened-I need camera lessons! Lol
 I picked green because lately I have gotten a lot of green clothing  (like enough to justify owning green shoes-which I don't have yet ) but I didn't own any green jewelry. I do now!
This is my version of Adrianne's DIY Pandora knock-off bracelet. 
 I love it!
Happy a fabulous Friday friends & a great weekend! :)  Thanks again for celebrating This Little Light's first birthday with me! I plan on making this next year the best! :)

Linking my basket up (well and I guess the rest of the post...but mostly my basket lol)  with the ladies at
Keep Calm & Link Up :)

  2. Thank you! What a blessing the gift card will be. I will use it to buy canvases for more paintings. I wish I were more crafty. Perhaps I could try making a basket or bracelet some day!

    1. Your welcome Barbie! :) I think painting falls under crafty-your crafty! I look forward to seeing what you will make! :)

  3. It turned out so pretty!! Thanks for the shout-out. :)
