Getting Crafty

I've always been a fan of creative, handmade items, from scrapbooks to cards, etc. so I spent a little time dedicated to being creative this past weekend. I went to Michaels and Joann's (haha, sounds like I'm referring to people not stores) to pick up supplies and I made my first book thong and clothespin geisha dolls!

And yes...my friend and I had a great time joking about our handmade glass-beaded thongs.

I must admit it's been a while since I've sat down to just solely concentrate on a craft project (I am the queen of multi-tasking), so it was a bit of a practice in patience for me (hence why there's only one book thong and two geishas thus far). It was a nice break in my usual routine though, and these beaded book thongs will definitely serve their purpose with me always having so many books and the habit of reading several books at the same time.
