Tape Measure Bracelets

Two bracelets I made recently.
The first was the yellow one I found at Michaels and the pink one came from Publix! Can you believe that?
I loved the color and decided to use only pink buttons on this one. I had a hard time finding the bar clasps.
These came from JoAnn's, as I never did find any at Michael' favorite store! Am not close to Hobby
Lobby, so don't know if they carry these. I used an eighth-inch hole punch for the holes, and 9-10mmrings
to attach the buttons. I tried to use a variety of buttons, but all one size and color would be good. This is
such a simple item to make and fun to wear!

Happy Saturday to all my lovely friends out in blog-land!
Peace and Blessings,

Dear Friends, I want to share with you this passage from the book, "Chasing the Horizon",
by authors Patrick and Thomas Kindade.  I think it is beautiful and worth sharing with friends and

"Our lives on earth are precious beyond any material price.  Time should never be spent anyway but well.
I think it can also be said that there is no greater use for time than to spend it with the people you love and the people who love you.  These are the ones who will carry you with them beyond even your own limited existence and pass you to others beyond theirs.  And holding others in your heart, in turn, grants them their own earthly immortality.  Family and friends should be celebrated and cherished now when they are with you and while you are able, or that legacy will pass you by without ever having the chance to flourish.
Only God can guarantee tomorrow.
I don't want to waste a single day."

Have a great day and week end, three days for some of us, dear Friends.

Peace and Blessings,
