Day one of spring break and I stayed busy. House is cleaned (well mostly). Ran the sweeper on all the furniture and mopped the kitchen. Took WeeMan for a walk in between rain storms. Made steaks for dinner on the grill – during a rain storm. Then I got seriously motivated and decided to make a bib necklace. I’ve been seeing them on etsy and couldn’t make up my mind how I felt about them. But I decided it would be a nice springy touch with a plain t-shirt. So I wanted to make my own. I made it with things I had on hand – so it was free – which makes it even better. Here’s what I did.
Then I dumped out the bag of yo yo’s I had bought off etsy a while back for a wreath project that never happened. I think I paid $3 or $4 for a sandwich bag full. (Yep I could have done this part myself – but by the time I bought fabric it would have cost me more)
Then I tried to lay them out in some sort of design. Origiinally I thought I would use all the colors… then I decided to limit it to three colors. Here’s my beginning experiment.
Here’s my finished necklace. I stuck to blue, yellow, and green. I saved some green to use with pink in another one when I get another chain.
Do you think it’s too big?
I also decided to make some honey wheat bread this afternoon. The whole house smells amazing right now. I have a super easy recipe – that tastes delish. Especially with Texas Roadhouse Cinnamon butter.
Also thought I’d post some pictures of proof that spring is coming. These are my tomato and pepper starters I planted about two weeks ago on a warm sunny weekend. Someone told me not to be sad if I didn’t get many to come up and as you can see almost every little pod has at least one plant. I’m going to have to gift some to the neighbors, since my garden is so tiny.
So all in all day one was a pretty good day in spite of the rain and the thunderstorms. Tomorrow we’re going to a friend’s house to scrapbook and play. Hopefully it will be a good day too!
