I love secret codes and little meaningful things, so these bracelets really appeal to me. I initially bought one for my bestie, Alpha, but it irritated my skin and I had to take it off. She’s cleverer than me and only wears it occasionally so it doesn’t have the same effect. I like not taking bracelets off in-case I loose them!
So, I decided to make my own one, that wont irritate my skin. I started off by finding the letters I wanted in morse code and made a note of them.
I chose BFF as that’s what my previous bracelet said and it would still match Alpha’s one. Then I gathered my supplies, seed beads, scissors and thread.
I used 2 beads to represent the dashes and 1 bead to represent the dots. The dashes were yellow beads in this case and the dots were pink. I cut the thread to length and then tied a small knot about a third of the way along the string to keep the beads where I wanted them. Then I threaded the beads on and tied another knot at the other end so there was a knot each side to keep it in place. Then tied it to my wrist.
I was super pleased with the finished product, it’s really cute, and goes with my other morse code bracelet from Ambear too.
It’s really easy, fine for most ages (as long as they don’t eat the beads!) and doesn’t take too long.
What would you spell out on a morse code bracelet? You never know, I might send you one!
So today should be about journal prompts but I’ve decided to go with the 30 Day Challenge by Kent Wildlife Trust. It’s something I do every year and get a lot out of it so I thought you might like to join me?
It’s as simple as it sounds, you do something to benefit or increase your knowledge/enjoyment of your local wildlife every day for 30 days.
This could be something like feeding the birds, which is how I’ve kicked my challenge off, or learning to spot 5 new species of wildlife (including insects, let’s be all inclusive people!), going for a walk in the woods, feeding the ducks or planting some new flowers. As long as it’s about nature and wildlife you can do anything!
I would love to see your progress so stay in touch!
This year for my birthday I decided to ask for something a little different, I asked for people to get me their favourite book.
Why? Because not only do I get to read cool books I may not have thought about before but also you get to know the person giving you the book a little better.
Maybe you didn’t know they like horror? Or maybe you were surprised that they like romcoms? It gives you a little insight to that person and helps you to get to know them better.
This was my book haul!
I got ‘The Glass Castle’ from my friend Lindsay, ‘The Railway Children’ from my friend Tilly and the rest from my friend Hannah who wanted to give me her favourites from several genres. I felt both spoilt and utterly blessed to have such lovely friends.
