The Hobby House Midway Reminder

Good morning blogging friends...

Today is the midway reminder for the

and this month's theme is

You can enter the challenge up to 3 times so long as you use at least one Hobby House item which is mentioned in your post and linked back to the item on the website.

Don't forget to pop on over to the challenge blog to see all the fabulous inspiration from the other girls on the team. They have come up with some fabulous and varied creations to help inspire you.

Having seen some of their projects I thought I would try something other than a card and this is what I came up with!

I made a shamballa style bracelet using 3mm ribbon. The technique is the same and there's a really helpful video on the Beads Direct website.

I know, I know, not very classy using a loo roll to photograph it on, but that's all I could think of to use!

The centre heart is a HH charm which I just cut the loop off using wire cutters and the ends of the ribbon are just finished off with little starburst spacers. Jill doesn't appear to have this particular heart, but she has a number of others including double hearts which would look lovely.

Thanks to all my lovely visitors who take the time to leave me such kind and thoughtful comments. This way I can also drop by your blog in return.

Have a lovely weekend.

Happy Crafting,

Bug Hugs,
Janine xx
