Bib Necklace

I saw a cute necklace on my friend's blog and I thought, "I could do that," so I put it on my mental to-do list (which is miles long, btw) and thought that I would just get to it when I have time. Yeah right, when I have "time" I just want to sit in front of the tv and pretend that I don't have a thousand other things that need to get done. But last night (at 11:15 pm) I thought I'd give it a try. Ben's out of town and I have a hard time sleeping when he's gone. I figured I would just get started and then when I was tired enough, I would just climb in bed and drift off happily to sleep. Instead, I stayed up until 1:30 am finishing the dang thing and I was so excited about it that I couldn't fall asleep until 2:30! Then at 3:00, Tori came in my room and that ended my peaceful night's sleep. Needless to say, I was pretty tired at church today, but I looked cute with my new necklace!

**I made this whole necklace with stuff I had at home. Spare buttons and beads, an old cloth diaper, the free diaper bag I got at the hospital (years and years ago) an old t-shirt, and some hot glue. I love it!

You are so beautiful Kristi! And what an AWESOME necklace! I never would have thought it was a necklace! I would have just thought it was detail along the neck of the shirt! SUPER cute!! Love it!
