Where there's a will, there's a way

I love twofer posts! And by twofer I mean I'm killing two birds with one stone! Man, I'm crafty like a fox. The first, the promised picture of all 53 bracelets I've made for {Craft Hope!} I've worked on them ALL week with almost all of my free time. My poor neglected hubby. I plan on making a few more before I send them off, but I reached my goal of 50!

Second, this weeks photo challenge over at Bugaboo, Mini, Mr, and Me! I had a really hard time with the title "where there's a will, there's a way." I could not think of anything fitting! That is, until I was done beading, looked down at my pile of bracelets, and realized that BAM! That was it! I wanted so badly to reach my goal of 50 bracelets (the will) that I used up alll my crafting time this week to reach my goal (the way!) I wish you could actually feel how heavy this wrapping-paper-roll-filled-with-bracelets weighed. It actually took some effort to hoist that over my head.

I feel like 50 bracelets just isn't enough, but when I look at the pile I'm like "Holy crap!"

I had a pretty good mix of both beaded elastic bracelets and {braided bracelets.} I had so much fun playing with different braiding materials and beads. Since these are going to girls between 4-18, I tried to include some more "grown up" bracelets as well as some teeny tiny bracelets with colorful pony beads. 

I'm so happy I accomplished my goal. :) Did any of you make any bracelets for Craft Hope? {Send me} a pic if you did, I would be tickled pink!

Oh! And there is good news for you! While I was experimenting, I came up with another version of the button bracelet! {Original bracelet here} If anyone wants a tutorial let me know and I'll write one up.
