Gold Rocks

gold painted rocks for st. patricks day

J+J love little treasures to hold in their hands, and who doesn’t love a little gold these days? With St. Patrick’s Day a couple of weeks away, I decided to create a little pot of gold-painted rocks for Jason and Jenna. Unfortunately, they already found them in a half-painted state in my office, so the element of surprise (and any pretense of Leprechaun magic) is clearly gone. But perhaps I’ll bury them in the backyard for a St. Patrick’s Day scavenger hunt.

Happy March!

Colorblock Bangles

I saw these bracelets on someone recently and couldn’t get them out of my mind. I don’t remember who was wearing them or where we were (probably New York), but the bracelets, those I remember.

Since I had no way to track them down, I decided to make my own. They were super easy to make using a set of unfinished wood bracelets purchased at this Etsy shop, along with a couple of Martha Stewart paints.

P.S. If you are the owner of wood colorblock bracelets, I’d love to hear where you got them.
