How to Make a Bracelet with Buttons

with Buttons Galore and More


Buttons Galore and More sent me Smiley Buttons to make jewelry. The first piece I made was a bracelet. I didn’t want the buttons to overlap so I had to figure out how to space them. I chose to use silver beads between the buttons.

The stringing material is stretchy so no clasp or closure was needed. I think both the front and back of the bracelet are interesting and could be worn either way.

Is it the Last?

In celebration of the 20th year of the Distress line that started with a brown, the new color is Scorched Timber. Announced as the last of the Distressed colors, but is it? Reports say this announcement has happened before and then new colors emerge. So I guess only time will tell.

If you are looking to round out your collection or just want to mark off what colors you have, this handy up to date chart is what you need.

Simply Earth – June 2023

This month get the June Simply Earth subscription box for $29.99, usually $49.99 plus a bunch of bonuses. #affiliate #simplyearth

Theme – DIY Diffusers

I am so excited to share with you the Simply Earth June Subscription Box. Its theme is DIY Diffusers. Such a great box for you and your family with recipes included. Use my special affiliate code – TRYITFREE – for a gift card of $45. And this month, you can get it all for $29.99!

One of the biggest differences I find with Simply Earth is the monthly recipes. In the past, I have ordered essential oils; when they arrive, I don’t remember what they do or why I ordered them. The Simply Earth recipe box contains the recipes for the oils included in the box as well as necessary additional support products to make the recipes.

This freebie is close to my heart. While I create all my Friday printables, this one is made from my own watercolor painting. I hope you find them as cute as I do and I would love to see how they travel – meaning how you end up using them in your work.

This week’s Link Party

Welcome to our weekly Link Party! This is a great opportunity for you to share your latest blog post, recipe, craft tutorial, or any other creative work you’ve been working on lately. We’re always excited to see what our readers come up with! However, we do have a few simple rules to make sure the party runs smoothly.

The feature from last week’s party is this crochet pattern review of the Mermaid Lollie designed by Stitch Sister Co. for the Sunshine Yarn Project. The review was done by Candace of T&C Crafters for EyeLoveKnots.

A few simple rules:

  • Link to a specific post, not your homepage.
  • Link up something YOU made/wrote/created.
  • Giveaways, other link parties, Etsy shops, or business links are not accepted.​​
  • ​Don’t link and run. Try to visit at least one link and show them some love. You may make a new friend.​ 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Pencil Swatch Charts

Free colored pencil swatching charts and a review of Prang colored pencils from the Dollar Tree. #printable #free

The best way to test any set of colors is to swatch them. I have two swatch charts you can download for free. The first one is for a set of 72 colors, however, it will work for sets smaller than that number as well. I used it to swatch and test the set of 36 Prang colored pencils from the Dollar Tree.

The second chart is more detailed and tests for layering, blending, and color mixing.
