Leafy Charm Bracelets

Posted on Nov 24, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 9 comments

Time again to celebrate Thanksgiving, what are you thankful for this year?  Everyday we are thankful for family, friends, health…….any particular thing be it big or small that happened this year?  Last year I was specially thankful for my grand daughter’s arrival, she was born September and I became grandma for the first time!  2010, I have a few on my list to be thankful for, and one of them is YOU, paper bead enthusiasts who comes visit me here on my blog and encouraging me to be more creative.  Kayla and I put together this bracelet which are going on my etsy shop, I am donating 100% of proceeds to buying little Christmas presents for the Filipino kids this year.


I want to thank you for visiting me if not everyday, often enough.  We have two bracelets to give away, the colors of coral and jade with wood beads.  Leave me a comment about what you are thankful for this year.  I am daring you to share it with us 🙂

I think I’m going to do another leaf bracelet…….maybe in copper this time.


I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I agree with Dayan. My family and I are blessed beyond measure! God is awesome and it is to Him that we give glory to. I am also thankful for having friends such as you in my life–the kind words of encouragement, the chukkles, and above all the inspiration that you give me. I wish each of you and your families HaPpY ThAnKsGiViNg!!

  6. As an Australian, I am thankful for the internet to understand what Thanksgiving is actually about! Until recently, I never understood the real meaning behind it and what you are all celebrating. It is a beautiful idea. I am also thankful for the wonderful world of crafters out there sharing their talents and for the support everyone gives each other. Most of all, I am thankful for my 2 beautiful, healthy daughters and loving husband. This time of year is hard for me as I remember our first daughter who died 8 years ago on 1st December. I may start to celebrate Thanksgiving here as a celebration to remember her.

  7. I am thankful for my husband and son. I am thankful for my God given gifts and talents, and for those which I have worked very hard to develop.

    Thank you for keeping up your blog, I really enjoy coming here every day to see what you’ve come up with!

    Happy Thanksgiving!
