Seashell wind chime

I’ve been wanting to make a wind chime with beach findings from every place I’ve been in the world and I finally finished it. I call it memory art (is it weird that I call still remember how and where I found many of the individual pieces?), and the driftwood is from my favorite beach in Sweden. I didn’t drill in any of the seashells but only used the ones with natural holes in them. The wood background I built is approximately 1 x 1.20 meter, I scorched and stained the planks to make them look vintage. Can’t decide if I want to have lights on it or not but I’m very happy it’s finished!

Crochet bracelet

Just drawing on a piece of paper didn’t do it for me so I went and bought yarn, a crochet needle and some beads. I feel better now. It was a bad choice packing up all my craft stuff and taking them to Milwaukee 3 weeks before we actually move. Not being able to create freely is like having an itch in your soul that you can’t scratch.Image
