Whassup Whassup Ladies???

Hey Ladies!
So heres the Scoop on Today...
I spent ALL DAY yesterday in my Studio, dealing with Bubble wrap AND found a HUGE box full of MORE Floral Stems!  So, I honestly have ZERO interesting Pics to share today...That is, unless you LOVE LOOKING at BUBBLE WRAP!
Its EVERYWHERE!
So, I am going to leave the Whassup Linkey and the "Charm"ing bookmarks post up through today as I head BACK OUT into my Studio to FINISH!
I HATE that I dont have a new post up for yall today and feel like I am letting yall down..BUT, thats just my OCD talking to me!
I will have a NEW POST tomorrow!

So PLEASE LINK UP MORE to the Linky Party! 

Have a BLESSED Day!

HEY-O!!!  Its Whassup Wednesday!

  So I will have NIGHTMARE part 3 tomorow...


So a fun, SUPER EASY, do it in bed while watching TV, craft!
If you read my post from yesterday you know that I have started a Bible study from an AMAZING book I got at Mardel...One of my "Goals"...(I do NOT do RESOLUTIONS)...Goals are better for me...
Anyhoo, my 1st and MOST Important Goal for 2011 is to put God 1st and draw nearer to Him!   I mean, He IS the reason we are all here, right?   And I know I MAY lose some readers for putting more of God into my Blog and my Posts...BUT, Im ok with that...God will send me others :0)
MY POINT...Heller...is that my Book inspired me to make a Bookmark!   So i just went out to my Studio and found some things I had in my 800 drawers!  I came up with this:
Some Twine...this is SUPER CHEAP at Hobby Lobby...and look at how much is in that "ball"...
this "ball" will last FOREVER!!!

"LAAAAAAAAA"
The Sky clears and a Ray of Sunlight Shines down on this Book!

Cut *6* lengths of the twine...be sure and give yourself PLENTY of slack or your gonna have a PROBLEM tie-ing on the Charm that goes on at the end...
WHY, you ask, do I know this....
Uuuuhhhh, cuz Kara did NOT have MORE than enough slack and trying to tie the Charm on was.....Anutha NIGHTMARE...but got it!


This is my Lap desk that i use when im in bed on the computer or doing a SMALL Craft...
 (Get aquainted with it cuz you will see it OFTEN)
Tape down all the twine at the top end...tape it GOOD!

Then seperate the 6 strands into 3 groups of 2...then Braid.
Im using my "Laaaa" book as a measure guide...AGAIN, braid MORE than enough, longer than you need, cuz NOW...

simple braid

NOW...Tie ONE Big knot with the ENTIRE group of twine

BOTH ends of the braid need to look like THIS...Plenty extra length of twine to tie on the Charm...
This end of mine was fine..Uuuuhh, the OTHER end, NOT so much...Had to pull out the TWEEZERS to tie the Charm on at that end...IT WAS GRUUUUUELING to say the least!
I FINEALLY handed it over to the HUB!
He got it!  Thanks Babe, I LOVE YOU!

I found a few things in my Studio to use as the Ends....This CAAAAUTE lil Cross Charm....

And these Pretty lil Jewel drops....LUUUURVE these...love the Bling Bling!

Decided to go with the Cross!
  So tied it on, and knoted it 3 times, then cut off the ends of the Twine...
Then I put a Lil dab of clear glue at the base of the knots
 to help keep them from getting loose and coming apart

There she is!

Cute as can be!
Isnt this bookmark "Charming"???
Get it...CHARMing...

And I LOVE the look of ANYTHING "Natural"!   Twine, Burlap...Love it!
And using only 6 strands gives the Braid some weight, but its NOT to thick to be "Bulky" in your book...

Works like a "Charm"!!!
GET IT???
I used a Charm...Works like a "Charm"...Uuuhhh, yeah...I know....Kara, REALLY???

So the OCD in me couldnt let that Bling Bling go UN-DONE!
These are in the Bead section of Hobby Lobby or Michaels...or your local Craft store

This is a BIT different because there is a Hole that runs THROUGH the top of these...Like, there is not a loop ring on top as there was with the Charm...so you have to run the twine through the gem and double it back up to the other end
(This is kinda hard to explain...are yall confused yet?   Cuz I AM, and I MADE the dern thing!)


See, its just 1 LONG piece of twine, pulled thru and back to the end....then cut your piece of twine...
GIVING yourself PLENTY of slack!
:0)

Now, tie in a knot 2 times

So you should have 2 of these...One for each end

Lay out the length

Then you will need to cut the 3rd gouping of 2 strands...So you should be at *6* strands total...
then secure the Top end with tape again to hold in place while you Braid

Its taped down secure and Im Braiding like a Hairdresser...
Braiding THIS SMALL is a lil tuff...ESPICIALLY with da Hoochie Nails!
HEY!  I MIGHT could make some $$$ on da side doin Hair Extensions!
Hhhmmm
????????????????

NOW!  When you get to the end of THIS Bookmark, tie All the Extra length of strands into knots...like 3 times, just to have the ends secured tightly...AGAIN, a dab of glue at the base of the knots is good to secure the knot from loosening

Ive knotted the ends several times so it looks like this

Then clip the extra ends of twine off...
Then I Frayed the ends cuz I thought it would make it look a lil tattered!
HEY!  I see a JOKE here...
  What did the twine say to the Jewel when the Jewel asked the Twine "Are ya Hangin in there Buddy?"... the Twine said "Im A Frayed Knot!"  
 Get it???  
A Frayed = Afraid
Knot = Not!
I know...SHUT UP Kara!!!

There it is!  LOVE the Bling Bling!

Again...Love the Natural look of the Twine!

I LOVE it!
What a "Jewel" it is!
Get it?  Its a Jewel and its made....I know...SHUT UP KARA!
For the Love of PETE, SHUT UP!
Whos Pete???  JK!

LUUUUUUUUUUUUURVE!
These would be AWESOME yet INEXPENSIVE gifts!


OK!

These are cute as can be ~~ you crazy woman! :) I can see why you can do this in bed. I'll have to get me a big ball of that twine. I have those bling balls in my inventory, but love the cross too. So maybe I should go buy this book too???

Everytime I go into my Silk Thumb workroom I think of YOU!! That is because it is still a disaster. I vision myself thrown to the floor in desparate need of someone to come help me!! Are you interested? ;)

HE HE HE ... I get it! I get it! LOL!

Happy Wassup Wednesday! Those bookmarks are charming! :) Thanks for hosting the party. Can't wait to see Wassp with everyone else! :)

I love these! Do you think hemp would work better than twine, or is twine the way to go? I know hemp is more expensive so if twine works just as well... why not?

Thanks for the great idea!

Denise said...

Very cute bookmarks :-)
I posted today so I linked up to your WW - yay :-)

Jemsmom said...

Teresa@oursoutherncountryhomeandfarm said...

What a neat book marker. I have a little 10 year old that loves to read her books and do crafts. This will be something great for us to do together. Thanks. Gonna link up now, see ya later.

Teresa@oursoutherncountryhomeandfarm said...

Oh where are my manners and my blogging etiquette? I don't know, but thanks for hosting.

Shirley said...

I love the bookmark, but more than anything I love your statement about putting more of God in your blog! I believe we should stand up and be counted as Christians. And, if it does offend someone, He surely will send more!
Blessings to you!

NanaDiana said...

Soooo...Those are really cute...nice job, KK...but...you did these while lying in bed? Seriously? So...do you like sleep on WOOD...cuz it looks like wood to me...wait...okay..went back and RE-read the first couple sentences of your post...and you said you COULD do them whilst lying in bed not that you WERE doing them lying in bed. Thanks for allowing me to clarify that for myself. Anyway...don't you think those would make sweet little gifts for the girls to give to their teachers for Valentine's Day...with little heart charms? Hmmm...maybe I should do a post about that with..but Lord love us...I am NOT giving them clear glue to "seal the ends" because you have OBVIOUSLY never seen SweetCheeks and the sisters with GLUE!

I'll be glad to see more of God in your blog...you may lose a few but you will also gain a few..and the ones you lose can go to the Devil...get it? Dropping out and GOING TO THE Devil? Never mind- later, xxoo Diana

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

Vicki said...

Life in Rehab said...

LOL, Kara, I have a bunch of those gems and tons of twine. I know I have to give this a shot.

Sheila said...

I love them both...simple and beautiful!

Becca said...

Hey, hey! I LOVE your *charm*ing bookmark! And, I just may have to borrow it. What a wonderful idea ... and love how you've done it a few different ways. You're so talented woman! I can't wait to see what else you get into this year. Thanks for letting me join your par-tay! Hugs, Becca

Lindy said...

Thanks for the invite. I love your bookmarks. I'm going to take a look around and see what else I've missed!

Honey at 2805 said...

So clever of you and a charming idea!. Thanks for hosting this party. So gracious of you.

Gypsy Heart said...

Love the bookmarks! I collect crosses and have to have the *bling* ~ :-) I think I'm going to go and get that book tomorrow. I keep thinking about it and there seems to be a reason for that. IMHO, we need to put God first ~ even in our blogs ~ 'cause He's the reason for it all.

Vanessa said...

Becca stole my joke..."charming"!! :-) LOL! I really do love your bookmarks and think you are so super creative. And, sweet friend, you just shout your love for the Lord from the rooftops! If our blogs only show one side of our lives than we are cheating ourselves, our God and others from hearing the Good News! Bless you!
Vanessa
