Wrap and stacking bracelets are very popular right now, and once I found this post, I HAD to try it. This was one of my more time consuming projects I have ever done. The site didn’t have very many details written out about supplies or how to properly make the bracelet beyond their pictures. I purchased the larger seed beads in a multi-color pack, cotton thread, some gold beads, fishing wire, and an old button. I am unsure if I wrapped them right or not.

I started the bracelet by wrapping the fishing wire around one side, putting on a bead, then wrapping around the other side and then looping it back through. I realized looping it back through made the bracelet start to curl and bend funny, so I stopped that. I just attempted to follow their pictures, but not sure if I did it right. So Best of luck on that! It turned out pretty well, except after a few hours of attempting to make it wrap 3 times like the pinterest one, I gave up and let it wrap only twice.

I am thinking to look other posts up similar to find the right instructions. Also, probably best to use a clipboard to clip down the top part while your hands work on the bracelet. I am trying that next time!

My friend (who I blogged about in a previous post) who has a fitness blog periodically posts healthy recipes. She posted this yummy, simple, healthy recipe and I LOVE IT! I ran out of egg whites, so I used regular eggs. Instead of the veggies she listed, I used mushrooms, spinach, & tomatoes. I can’t wait to just get out of bed, pop these in the microwave and leave for class!

The original pin didn’t have instructions how to make this, and a group of friends and I made these, one of them teaching us how to. So I will include instructions below:

You will need-

  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Plain Clipboard
  • stickers and ribbon
  • Mod Podge and paintbrush
  1. Measure your paper to fit the clipboard on all edges and cut to fit. (Easy to just trace and cut).
  2. Quickly spread a decent layer of Mod Podge on the clipboard and quickly place your paper on top. (WARNING: the paper WILL get bubbly and look bad, do not try to smooth the bubbles out or the paper could rip, they will disappear after it dries).
  3. Let the board dry for about 15 mins. and add any other paper, stickers or ribbon. And it’s complete!

I got a simple white frame from a local thrift shop, and repainted the edges to touch up the paint. I had to try   several types of scrapbook paper because some designs were too “busy” with the writing on the glass. Finally found this pretty pink paper and it worked well. I also added some gems and stickers to make it look a little more complete! Made this for a friend for Christmas! VERY SIMPLE!

I don’t own a panini pan at school, so this recipe is just as easy in a pan. For some reason, the link on Pinterest doesn’t open the actual recipe, so I googled it. You can do it with any kind of fruit. Here is the recipe and instructions via stove top:

  • Fresh strawberries (or any fruit)
  • Two slices of bread
  • Cream Cheese (softened in the microwave for about 25 seconds before)
  • Butter

Butter one side of each slice of bread. Put the cream cheese on the non-buttered sides and place fruit on top. Put the slices of bread together and cook it on the stove top like you were for a grilled cheese. Cook until lightly browned, and enjoy!
