So remember this week’s Thursday Thought’s when I mentioned those handmade bracelets that I saw on Pinterest? Well I finally went to the craft store and started making a couple! The store nearest me was a little limited on supplies, so I was a bit disappointed in what I could find. I definitely want to go to another craft store further out to find some more chains and maybe rope, but I wanted to show you all what I came up with!

My inspiration for this bracelet came straight from the pin:



I couldn’t find a gold chain that thick, so I ended up doubling up the gold chain that ?I did find, to make it look a little better.

After excessive googling, I found how to make the bracelet part (which was embarrassing since I knew I’d made a million just like this when I was younger…) and then I got started!

I actually did this part sitting outside on our front porch since it was so nice out! Looking up into the trees:


When I got inside I started working on the metal part. I connected the chains to the turquoise bracelet I made, which was easy since the links opened up pretty easily with the pliers.

So not exactly like the photo… but a good first attempt. Hopefully I’ll be able to find some better/thicker chains at another store and perfect my bracelet-making in the next few days! I want to make a few in several colors, so I can wear them either together, or with different outfits. I thought about doing the friendship bracelet one as well, but I feel like those might be too casual for wearing to my internship this summer.

Now I just have to find some cute clothes that are work-appropriate! Ahhhhh. Good thing I have some time to work on it!

While I was out, I also discovered a new health food store in KC! I just stopped in to look around, and ended up being OVERWHELMED by the amazingness and just walking around for way too long! Don’t worry, I made some purchases too. If you live in KC you should check out Natural Grocers at 91st and Metcalf!

One thing I love? You have to bring your own bag! It’s got a lot of what whole foods has, but much cheaper. They have a hug bulk section:

And part of it is refrigerated!

They also have a huge section for health and beauty and natural supplements:photo 2 (3)

And more Kombucha than Whole Foods! Plus a great grab-n-go section!

I was very impressed!
