I'm a crafty person (thanks, Mom, & shout-out to Grandma up in Heaven!), which is both good and bad.  It's good because it gives me something to do on the most boring of days, but bad because I become a little obsessed about it quite often.  Take this last move of ours... I put my beloved boxes of glass beads in the hands of the movers... they were neatly compartmentalized into matching colors when they left my house at Ft. Hood, but upon arrival at my house at Ft. Detrick, they were all mixed up. The horror!!!  So I spent 2 hours sorting them back into their color piles recently... obsessed much?  Yes, I thought so, too.

One of the craft projects that I've made in the past & wanted to make more of was vintage button bracelets.  I used to love pilfering through my grandma's coffee can of buttons, so I always have my eyes peeled for cool ones.  Before I found this project in a beading magazine, though, they always just stayed in that coffee can.  No more!  I present to you, the latest in my vintage button bracelet project line!


Awww, look, just my size!

And nifty-keen, I have one of the buttons featured in the tutorial!

I can't wait to make more projects like these, but for now?  My hands hurt!  I may be crafty, but I don't have the nimblest of fingers.  It ain't easy being a Yeti.   ;)
