This is what keeps me sane

So this is what I've been up to since late April. I started making little stretchy bracelets for Anna and Julia and it morphed into this! After crunching some numbers, I think I've made a grand total of 96 bracelets. I've given quite a few away because I'd rather give them as gifts to friends and family instead of selling them. So I'm sure you're wondering why I'm posting them here. Well, I've had TONS of people want to know how I lost weight. This is how! When I had the craving to eat or felt overwhelmed, I would sit and make a few bracelets. Sometimes it only took making one or two, but other nights it took making five or six. I've really enjoyed making them and searching for new and exciting beads. Any excuse to shop is always a treat!! :-)

This is what I call the blue man group. Here are the bracelets that are mostly blues.

I'm not a huge fan of brown, but here are a few that I've put together.

Black isn't a popular color either.

Here are some of the really cool colored ones. Dice, stripes, and rainbows have been my favorites lately. I just made the two on the right side tonight. I love the gumdrop beds.

Red, red and more red. I love red! Anyone that knows me knows that my favorite color is red. I really love all of these!!

It's the Pink Ladies! The big bracelet right in the center with the purpley-pink beads is my new favorite. The beads I got from http://www.ornamentea.com/ They are a super cool store in Raleigh, NC. I should have ordered more, but I wanted to see how well I liked them first. :-)
