Make Pompom Book Marks

Hi. Ready for creative fun and a project that you can use immediately, too?  I'm thrilled to share a project with "something for everyone" today. Slipping back into school schedules, for me, meant thinking of a very simple, back-to-school project and it's a project for anyone of any age! 
Make Pompom Book Marks. 

These are such a simple, fun, relaxing to make project:
perfect for kid-makers -- side-by-side with you or in groups --- for teachers, hostess presents --- but, why not make one for you, too! 

I honestly couldn't choose what I like more: the ultra, long, multi-pompom bookmark or carefully crafted shortie. Plus, it's a project for anyone who'd like to do step it up a notch.

I've included a few pompom plus versions, as well:
- Pussy Willow Leaf  Bookmark
- Apple-Book Mark Bookmark

Macrame Rock Necklaces

These macrame rock necklaces were an idea that came about after we painted rocks but, would work with so many rock treatments, along with nature finds, such as seaglass or a piece of drift wood.

They were so beautiful and it gave me an idea that led to these necklaces and today, come join us in making these!
