Beads, Cricuts and Camera Straps!

Been busy over here, getting ready to put a workshop in the backyard for hubby to play in or sleep in if he is bad! The ultimate dog house! Will send pics when completed after October 13th.

I have been selling some items in my etsy store, a few camera straps and necklaces so I decided to break down and buy a Cricut Explore Air to help me with my scrapbooking needs. Having fun learning all the fun things I can make with it!

Also been beading, I never got the hang of beading even though I spent a fortune on classes, but when I dropped by Colleens house she had a bracelet there that I just loved the colors of. She said she made it on a loom and since she was not teaching it said I could take a picture of it.
Well, I ran straight to Joanns and bought a loom, cost a whole 5.00. Came home and did some researching online found this AWESOME video from taught me everything I needed to know and I did not need a loom!! Just a beading tray, already had one of those!
If you are interested check it out:

Here are three bracelets I have made so far!
This is the one I loved the colors on!

A nautical one for my cruises!
