Surprise visitor...

My brother and his girlfriend are headed down here for the weekend.  I had Nate's birthday present all wrapped.  I made 2 bracelets for Leslie.  Then I get a phone call saying that Caroline, my sister, is coming too.  Well, I can't have a gift for everybody else and not her.  I had 2 wooden bangle bracelets left so I got to work.  I painted one brown and gave it an antique feel.  The other I covered with purple tissue paper, giving it a leather look.  Mod Podge was my adhesive of choice for both.
I wrapped the brown one with some jute.  I wrapped the purple one with some silver jewelry wire.  I added 2 clear beads I had from earrings I wore in college.  The purple bracelet should definitely get some wear at "good ole CHS". 

I hope you noticed that I put a link in the first paragraph.  I am learning.
