Project: Bird Nest Necklace

Lately I’ve had the urge to make things. I’ve been ¬†indulging in quick and easy projects. I’m using materials I’ve already got and am not wanting to make much of a mess.

Here’s a birthday gift I put together for a friend’s special day last weekend, along with the wrapping.

Quick, easy and cute. I hope she loves it!

Not as great as the real thing but still a welcome sight.


Out and about.

I seem to be gathering a lot of dust over here. Pardon my mess while I try and get it together.
