I’m in the home stretch of my Christmas crafting marathon! And some of the other bigger focuses in my life have pulled back slightly as well, so I hope to have everything done and ready to be shipped by this weekend. Hopefully this will be the last or second to last old blog post I have to repost. Thanks for sticking with me!
Today’s post is a bit of a throwback to middle school. Friendship bracelets! Although a bit more grown up this time around. I love embroidery floss – stitching, knotting, braiding, tying, looking at, collecting… I do love me some embroidery floss.
My grandmother gifted me a whole jar of buttons she’s collected over the years. I had lots of fun making these. I found the patterns around Pinterest. I’ve collected them on one of my boards. Check it out!
And this was the first. Not really a button. That’s actually a 5 yen coin from Japan. 5 yen equates to about $0.05 USD. The 5 yen coin signifies meeting new people and good experiences heading your way.
