A little bird told me.

Good morning Bloglanders

Another week and I'm inspired to finish up some old projects as well as take on a few new ones.  Let me show you what I did over the weekend.

I do love wooden beads and when I had to babysit a 4 year old, out it came.  I printed out a few color combo's from The Play Date Cafe and she had to string a necklace to fit every combo.  That was fun - even to me!!

In the picture you can see the one made from this inspiration board:

When playtime came to an end, my little friend (obviously) didn't want to hand back my beads so I packed a party favor tin and dressed it up with some ribbon, a tag en twine from The Twinery.  She was more than willing to hand my beads back when she could have her very own mini beading pack.

It is such a fun idea that I'll be making some more to give away as pressies.  I think I will include smaller beads for the bigger girls and some elastic - then they can do bracelets as well. Also, I'll be laminating some of the color combo's from The Play Date Cafe for them to replicate. I'm rather proud of my idea.

Finally, I have some solid color twine in my stash!! I decided to order 3 shades and when I had to choose, I looked at my stash to see which ones have been used most. I love cool colors like blue, grey, purple and green but surprise, surprise!  The ones used most were Pink and Red!! So I ordered them and some green just because I really, really like it.

And I couldn't wait to use them so you'll see the Pink Sorbet solid color twine mixed with the "normal" one in my "a little bird told me" beading pack. Just love to slip a little twine into every project!

Now, hop over to The Play Date Cafe to see what the rest of Blogland did with this color combo.  You wouldn't be disappointed.  Thanks for visiting my blog and please come back to play.
