"Patriot" and "Aware" available at You've Got Maille

Chris (check out her blog! Pointless Ponderings From a Cluttered Mind) won my chainmaille stretchy bracelet from my Bella Casa giveaway a few days ago.  She wanted something patriotic since her husband is in the armed services, so I am making her a "Patriot" bracelet and sending it along. 

Her son also has autism, and she was thinking about buying another one in the ribbon colors for autism awareness.  That got me thinking... wonder if I can make it look like a puzzle?   I'll be playing with this idea in the next few days :)

Got a cause you'd like to wear?  I'll be happy to work with you to make something perfect, either stretchy or any other design.  We can add charms (trust me, there is a charm for EVERY cause), or represent it another way.  I'm also branching out into a bit of bead weaving, and it occurs to me that this would look amazing as a bead-woven bracelet.  If you've got an idea, definitely inquire and I'll tell you what I can do and what I can't.

Thanks for the inspiration, Chris, and congrats on winning!  (See the next post for your chance to win!)

Candy Fluff Goat's Milk Soap From Bella Grace Designs

It looks good enough to eat but it's "a delicious concoction of sweet strawberry sunday on a lazy afternooon with hints of creme and fluffy marshmallows."  Okay it SOUNDS good enough to eat, but it's soap :)
