I remember when I was a kid my mom started a charm bracelet for me. Maybe your mom did this, too. Any special occasion I was to add a charm. To be honest (sadly) I have no idea what happened to that childhood bracelet or even how many charms made it on.
Luckily, I can make my own jewelry now so I have another charm bracelet! (Actually, several.)
This particular charm bracelet is a memory bracelet for me. It contains memories and charms that are all about me and my hobbies and loves.
These charms are mostly purchased except for the photo charms, which I made and also contain my own photography.
Here are 10 Things You Can Learn About me From My Charm Bracelet:
1. I sew. I’m not a master seamstress by any means, but I do sew. I love sewing dolls, fabric cuff bracelet and home decor. I’m planning a very simple quilt this year and I would love to start designing clothes for myself, too.
3. This charm reminds me of tree branches. I love being in nature and in particular I love trees.4. Yes, I love nature, but this butterfly reminds me of freedom. I quit my day job almost a year ago. I work from home now on my own schedule. I have this charm to remind me of that freedom that I often take for granted.
We had just had a very Beatles immersed wedding. (I walked down the aisle to “Here Comes the Sun” and one of our first dances (we had 2 first dances) was “In My Life.”) And then this on our honeymoon.
I was one of those people who never was going to switch to this digital camera “fad.” Pretty funny to think about now, especially considering I now take 300 or more photos a week. Image all that film!
7. Road trips! My husband and I love to travel to quirky, offbeat, interesting places. We love nature. We love historical. We love abandoned. We love a good story. It never gets weird enough for us. This is my most favorite thing to do with my time. Thus, there are 2 charms devoted to it.
Sometimes I feel so very lucky to live not too far (I think it’s probably about 6 or so hours from where I live) away from somewhere so beautiful, a place that people from around the world put on their bucket list to visit. And truly I can jump in a car and get there in no time. It’s breathtaking.
10. I’m married. That’s my hubby and I in our gorgeous yellow ponchos. We just came from the Cave of the Winds at Niagara Falls. (See I told you I loved Niagara Falls!) Like I said above, this was such a beautiful time in my life at a seriously gorgeous location and, of course, with the person I love so very much.
