This morning when I looked at my little pile of beads I decided to look at them separately, not in pairs or groupings the way they were "supposed" to be but each individually. When I did I noticed that they were actually quite cute. I thought to myself "would I ever criticize someone else's work so harshly?" Probably not.
Then why do I do this to myself?
I realized that we are often our own worst critics. Whether it's our hair, our weight, a meal we've cooked or our art it seems easy to dissect ourselves and neatly categorize our flaws.
In honor of this realization I decided to make lemonade out of these self described "lemons". I gathered up a batch of my beads and whipped up a bracelet that's rather cute, if I do say so myself.

Now that feels better. :-)
I've decided to give this bracelet as a giveaway. But there's a catch.
First, you must answer this question;
What do you like about yourself today?
It can be anything you'd like, just say something nice about yourself.

Be kind to yourself today. :-)
Edit: If you don't feel comfortable leaving your email address (I totally understand) just make sure I have a way to contact you if you win. :-) If you follow my facebook page I can contact you there. Thanks again!
