Welcome to The Robin's Nest/Helmar Blog Hop!!


After all this weather in the east...it's time for some inspiring craft projects!

I have been enjoying Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest.
Winter Retreat has been my best go-to color combo.
Love it!!

A benefit of being a crafter is that you can create personalized gifts for those you care about.
With the holidays around the corner, there always seems to be a crunch in your cash flow, right?
So, I found an inexpensive cuff bracelet at the craft store...just waiting to be embellished!
Silver, sleek...and perfect for my 12 year old DD's Christmas gift!  
(Hey, if I don't keep it hidden from her, she is going to claim it as her own anyways!!)


To adhere the Dew Drops, I used Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
It does dry quickly...but there is wiggle room to play with the placement if you add the adhesive to small areas at a time.  For this project, I started in the middle of the cuff and worked my way towards the outsides.




Model:  Little brother. 
Let's just hope  he can keep the secret from his big sis!

It's your turn to Thippity thump thunp down the frosty blog hop trail
I am sure you'll enjoy the festive ideas from The Robin's Nest and Helmar's Designers!

Hundreds of dollars worth of prizes...and yes, YOU deserve some of this holiday cheer!
