A New Hobby?

I hope you are having a great weekend. 
Did you notice a new sponsor in my sidebar?  WholePort sells fabric, lace, baking supplies,
 jewelry making supplies and much more.  WholePort was kind enough to send
 me anything I wanted from their site (within reason of course).
I had been thinking of trying my hand at making jewelry.   I chose natural red coral beads,
jewelry tools and findings.
Pinterest was a great source for me to find instructions for making jewelry.  Actually,  Pinterest
has become the source for just about anything. 
Though not perfect,  I am pretty happy with the way the necklaces turned out.
I had enough beads left after making the first necklace to make the one below.

I hope you will visit WholePort for your sewing and crafting supplies. Below are just a
few items they carry.
Natural jade beads
This fabric would be great for a pillow.
They carry unusual soap molds
Pretty rose trim.
Baking supplies
Polymer clay and resin molds.  These would make great
rose swags for furniture appliques.
WholePort carries thousands of items and their prices are extremely reasonable.
Check them next time you are looking for craft items.
Partying this week at:
This is a sponsored post and I was given the supplies to complete a project.  The comments are my own
and not influenced by the sponsor or the gift.  See disclosure for further info.
