Bling It, Squid!

When I get to visit with my family I love to do things with my niece, Squid. Squid LOVES jewelry, bling, and pretty things. (Hey, like her favorite auntie!)

Anyway… one of the days she was here we made a bracelet and necklace set for her. For a little squirt, she’s pretty good at stringing beads. She even helped me make an adult styled bracelet for my mom back in May when B & I were in Iowa.

Here we are having our own adventure “building” a bracelet for Squid the Kid… Because she’s only 3, we used some larger beads and stretchy string.

Picking out the beads:

Squid can do it herself! {Auntie Erin helped with getting the flowers and centers on, Squid did the silver hearts and loved it.}

“Ta Daaaaaaaa!!!!”

The final result and one happy {and very tired} Squid. The necklace was an afterthought. We had some beads leftover and she loved the big pink hearts. :)
