OH NO...not THAT kind of thong...that's way too scary a thought!!!
I spent part of Saturday making Book Thongs. I received a lovely book thong from my friend Bev over at Country Frog Creations. The link will take you right to the pics of what I won in her blog drawing celebrating her birthday! Lots of fun goodies...thanks, Bev! Be sure to go to her home page to see what she's been up to. I visit her blog often.
Bev got me inspired to make some book thongs of my own & here's a pic of the first ones:
There are many instructions for these little beauties on websites. This one has some very clear instructions & examples to get you started. Of course, me being me...I kind of made things up as I went along. For example, I can't use nail polish so I used Ranger's Glossy Accents & it worked beautifully. You only need the smallest little dot of the product to secure the knots.
I'm also not big on measuring things...which is why I love to cook, but hate to bake...so I just cut a length of waxed linen cord to a length that seemed to be long enough to me & started adding beads & charms.
These are great to give as gifts, however Bev had a great thought to have a one-for-one swap of book thongs. Is anyone interested? We'd assign partners & you would mail directly to your partner. Just send me an email, being sure to include your email address so I have a way to get in touch with you. You can find my email link in my profile. Details will be determined after we see how much interest there is.
Well, now I'm headed back into my studio to do some more of these...but I do have another topic to talk about over the weekend, so be sure to visit again.
The joy of REAL tomatoes!
