This weekend I went to the awesome wedding of Curly J. I will give you some more details about the wedding later this week. But first, let's talk about my big project...
J decided she wanted some "fun" jewelry for the bridesmaids to wear. She showed me some pictures of things that I didn't really know how to make but I said if she picked out all the beads, I would string them together for us. She had some flower beads made by a seller on Etsy (whose name I cannot remember right now). Then we selected other beads that we thought would go well with them and then I attached everything together. I though they ended up looking pretty good.
Each necklace was little different which I thought was nice.
As my reward for being a jewelry consultant, Curly J got me this awesome gift basket filled with some locally made nut butters and accompaniments (crackers, apples, chocolate, etc). The nut butter was made by Big Spoon which is a local roaster and nut butter company in Durham. This stuff was good. We had cashew, almond and peanut. I enjoyed the peanut the best. It was just a little sweet and had a great nutty texture. I liked putting some of the peanut butter and some honey on a graham cracker as a snack.
I'm still recovering from all the food and dancing this weekend, so I will get back with you on more details of the wedding soon.
What do you think of the bridesmaid jewelry?
Have you ever had fresh nut butter?
