Jennifer, from Delightfully Noted, recently asked if anyone would be interested in participating in an “old school craft challenge”. Think Bedazzlers, Pony Beads, and Puffy Paint. Yes, please! I love 90s!
So it’s official! I’m one of the participants!
Michael is leaving this one all up to me (he has done a little brain storming with me). I really thought my mystery item would end up being a Bedazzler. It wasn’t. I got PONY BEADS!
I’m just happy it wasn’t Puffy Paint! I would have had no idea what to do with Puffy Paint. Although, I do feel like I’ll need to find a Bedazzler at some point in my life, because I did come up with, what I think, is a great idea for that one.
I really want to win this challenge. The prizes are awesome! T-shirts, cute headbands, jewelry… the list goes on. You can check out all the prizes and details on the challenge here. Project reveals and VOTING start the week of July 12th, which means I need you to vote for me. Yep. Already asking for votes and you don’t even know what I’m bringing to the challenge. Like a true politician, no? I kid.
I’ll be posting a few sneak peeks via Instagram, so be sure to follow along; it’s going to be so fun! I can tell you that I originally tried to melt the beads to make ombre earrings. I can also tell you that it did not work out at all. The beads did not melt well. Womp. Womp. On to Plan B. If you’ve been reading for any amount of time, you know we typically go all the way to a Plan G before things work out for us. Here’s to hoping for better odds this time!
