DIY Weekend!!

It was certainly a DIY weekend here in New York. I stocked up with cookies, chips, magazines and lots of bracelet supplies. & let me tell you thank God I did. We didn't lose power from the hurricane, but we did lose cable & internet!! You don't realize how much you rely on the internet for the simplest things until its gone...even the internet on my phone wasn't working too well.

But I guess things happen for a reason because LOOK how productive I was!!! I went on a DIY bracelet CRAZE and made a bagillion bracelets. DIY Arm Parties for everyone!!!!

I got most of the ideas from Honestly...WTF the best DIY blog ever! If you don't read it you NEED to! and I got the lanyard bracelet idea from Noir Jewelry. I saw the bracelets on their site and thought who the hell would pay $25 for a spiral lanyard bracelet!! AKA time to break out the camp skills (btw I totally didn't remember how to do this spiral stitch so I just looked it up on YouTube!)

I know I can't have been the only one that got a little creative during the storm! Did you get hit by Irene??
