Sometimes things get so crazy between work and family obligations that all I want to do when I get home is crash. That's fine, except it makes me feel very lazy. So, I have tried to do a few things to make myself feel a little more productive.
I made this bracelet a couple of weeks ago and I wear it almost daily.
It's so simple--a bangle from Michael's and a couple of charms--but I wear it almost daily. I've found it's perfect with casual summer tees and dresses.
I was also inspired by the Jennifer Jangles blog to pick up embroidery. This is the project I've started.
It's SO relaxing--like coloring with thread. One of my "happy places" is inside an Airstream, parked in the woods, on a rainy day with nothing to do but curl up inside, listen to the rain, and catch up on my reading.
In the meantime, I'm trying to survive the last couple days of vacation bible school at church. I have the teen class. Wish me luck!
