Handmade Black and Silver Beaded Bracelet with a Dangle

Handmade Jewelry: Black and Silver Beaded bracelet. Three separate strands using stretch cord with a cute little dangle.

Today, I'm sharing another jewelry creation I made. I find making my own jewelry allows me to customize my creations to the types of outfits I wear. In the music industry, black is the most commonly worn 'uniform', but it gets boring without a little sparkle.

I mixed the types of black beads with charcoal and silver and created three bands using stretch cord. Adding the flowery dangle gives a little whimsy to the piece.

I had such wonderful comments and love from my Hardwood Flooring Post I shared on Hometalk, I was invited to curate another board for them that's all about Budget flooring and I have found some stunners. I thought it would wonderful to combine my Clipboard with a Rockin' the Roundup feature.

Let's show off this week's Rockstars!

When we were putting the finishing touches on our Dining Room Makeover, one thing really stood out. Our Dining Table didn't match this house. I have been swooning over the tables I see at Restoration Hardware and Ballard Designs, but a new table was not in our budget. Here's how we made over our dining room table for $20 and 
leftover paint.

Here's where we began.

Rockin' the Roundup: Blogging Series - Managing your Blogging Schedule

Managing Your Blog Schedule without losing your mind! Tips from blogging experts to help you prioritize your to do list AND still have time to blog!

Whew! What a week? Ever have one of those? I'm the one in our house responsible for compiling all our paperwork for taxes for our home recording studio and I always get a bit befuddled during tax season. There was even a point of desperation this week where I entered into the "give it all up" room. You know, the room where you go to really consider pruning things from your life? It's also known as the "pity party" room, so it's not a very fun hang out.

I know I'm not alone in feeling like my to do list is never-ending, even with my blog, so I thought this week's round up needed to focus on managing your blog when life happens, time slips away from you, when you have bitten off more than you can chew. In addition to running Noting Grace, we also operate a business from our home as well as homeschool our boys, so things get overwhelming pretty quick. This week's Rock Stars give their expert tips to help you sort it all out and I am so excited to share their posts!
