Valentine’s Day Bark

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!

I made chocolate toffee bark for a few people in the office last night (and wrapped them up this morning) as well as made a few extra for Josh to take to work.  They are SO freakin’ good and SO easy to make  (meaning – my mom could probably handle this one).   Get the recipe here from Deep South Dish.     (It’s literally 5 ingredients).    They are a bit gooey, so I wrapped them in wax paper in layers, pulled them in plastic bags from the Paper Source, and then tied with vintage ribbon.

Wishing you a super sweet and wonderful Valentine’s Day!

xx, Hallie

An AMAZING DIY Chain and Thread Bracelet!

This DIY bracelet is just too good to not share.  I just came across it on Pinterest via Linz Loves You, where she discovered this AMAZING Do It Yourself Bracelet from HonestlyWTF and I am in LOVE and want to make ASAP.  (All images and instructions are from HonestlyWTF)

So here it goes:

Tools needed:

curb link bracelet

embroidery thread

two bobby pins

scissors

Cut 2 sets of 15 strands of embroidery thread, with each strand measuring four times the length of the bracelet. Knot the all the threads at the top, leaving about 2 inches of slack. Sandwich each set between a bobby pin – this will help you easily weave the threads through the links of the bracelet. Lay the threads to the left of the bracelet. Pull the first color (coral) from under the first link and over the top of the left side.(Click images to enlarge)

Lay the second color (blue) over the first color (coral). Pull the second color (blue) from under the same link and over the top left again. Repeat the steps, moving onto a new link: put the first color (coral) on top of the second color (blue) and pull it out from under the 2nd link and over the top left. Lay the second color (blue) on top of the first color (peach) and pull it out from under the 2nd link and over the top left again. Because the links of this particular bracelet are large, I wove the threads through twice on each link.

Repeat the steps until you reach the end of the bracelet. Finish it with a knot and trim the ends.
