Create: Button Bracelet

I've become a pinning aficionado since discovering pintrest a few weeks ago.

From decorating and organizing ideas to yummy recipes, I've found so much inspiration around the web and on the boards I follow; Pintrest makes it really easy to discover and share inspiration. And, lately, that's just what I've needed -- inspiration coupled with a little motivation to keep on creating even while journeying through my creative desert.

My favorite Pintrest find, probaly, is a button bracelet handcrafted by a jewelery designer at Lillyella.

With the tropical weather keeping us tied to air conditioned places, I felt like yesterday, after my bemoaning of said crative desert, was the perfect day to take a cue from my pin board and create my own button bracelet. The boys and I headed to the craft store and picked out the elastic and buttons together, all of which totaled about $20.

Lillyella made it easy, with step by step directions at her blog.

And can I say? I just adore how my design turned out! Not only am I loving wearing it, but my creative spirit is feeling a little refreshed and renewed.

If you're on Pintrest, let me know so I can follow your boards. I'm Hyacynth there. {Well, I'm Hyacynth everywhere, but you know what I mean.}
