Time flies

So it seems I've barely been making it from one I heart Mondays to another....

This is a busy time of year with kids scheduling, tons of homework to oversee, permission slips to remember, reeds to buy, doctor appointments, dentist appointments, etc. etc. I haven't been posting much because I haven't been crafting much.

For a quick and easy jewelry project, try a charm bracelet. This cute charm is from I've never ordered from them, but I thought this image really summed up my mood.

The easiest way to make a charm bracelet is to buy a chain with the clasp already attached, and then add your charms with jump rings.

If you're feeling a little more ambitious, pick your chain, add your own clasp, and then intersperse purchased charms with some you make yourself. Here's one I made during my book signing and jewelry demonstration at A. C. Moore:
