Hello everyone!

I used this challenge as a reason to stop procrastating.  I work in a call center, where, happily for the most part, it's chilly.  However, that wreaks heck on my wrists, so, wandering around the local Dollar Tree I found this amazingly soft scarf with a cute argyle print.  Add to that a few bows off some hair ties, and some buttons, and toss in a bit of elastic from my stash and I present to you, my $3 armwarmers, wheee!

Sorry about the linkage instead of pictures, but I do so much more lurking than posting! Hmmm, I broke it, working on it now!  Edit - got it, wheee!



This is closest to a full shot I coudl get, it's hard to aim one handed!



A close up of the cute bow (from a ponytail holder) and some buttons to snazz it up.



The other hand, the bow is reversed, I did that on purpose, I just don't quite remember why!

Anyway, these are a bit baggy, and soft and warm. This was a ton of fun, and everyones entries are way awesome!  But now it's time to tuck them into my bag to go to work with me tommorrow!

Have fun everyone

My office is always freezing!  I might need to at least borrow your idea.

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.
