Craft Lightning Day 2 Roundup

I’m loving this week of Craft Lightning! Normally, when Angie from the Country Chic Cottage and I do these week-long series, we choose a theme. This week, we didn’t select any kind of theme – we are doing all kinds of fast crafts – leaving it wide open for ourselves and the bloggers that are joining us in crafting along. Though I love seeing all the different variations on a theme, I really love seeing all the variety this week as well!

Randi from Sowdering About Seattle made the most adorable flower block wall decor.

Angie, my crafty partner for this series made some dyed glitter clothespins. These are great for all kinds of uses – from clipping together papers, to securing the top of chip bags in the kitchen.


And I whipped up a fun DIY charm bracelet! I’m sharing jewelry tutorials all week long, each project building on what we did the previous day… but all simple enough to tackle as your first jewelry project!
