I'm a Lucky Girl Indeed! Mandy is Visiting!

Well hello!

I am ridiculously excited to be visiting here @ Hiyaluv today!
Gina is one of my favorite people...
so encouraging and fun!
But then, I'm sure you already know that, huh? :]

I'm Mandy, and I live in Colorado Springs with my dear husband and our puppy, Ali.

I write a blog called Mandy's Yellow Corner where I share my crafty endeavors...

Like my recreation of a beat up door that I was infatuated with...

And my Spiderweb Table Runner Tutorial:

Or my tutorial for making an Anthropologie Knock-off Necklace

Speaking of which, I have a new Anthro-inspired tutorial that I'm going to share with you right now!

Have you seen the Feeling-Dapper Necklace?

It's ridiculously simple to make!


An Old Sweater or Sock
Lobster Clasp

Cut out a square shape from the old sweater and about two feet of yarn:

Fold the square in half:

Tie the yarn around the middle of the folded-over piece of sweater:

Hold the center of the chain to the back of the "bow tie":

Wrap the yarn around the folded square and the chain, 
and secure with a knot:

Add a lobster clasp to the chain:

Easy, huh?
Takes about 5 minutes to make!

If you enjoyed that tutorial, you may want to come over and check out some of my other tutorials.

Thanks again for having me on your lovely blog, Gina!
