Bottlecap Necklaces

These necklaces have become my new addiction. They are fun to wear and I absolutely love making them. The first time I made one was with the girls in our youth group during our True Love Waits Retreat. After wearing it only once, I have had quite a few people tell me they want one so I am thinking about selling them...
I can pretty much use any image, logo, or picture. They are magnetic so the bottlecaps easily snap off and on so they can be changed.
One necklace (black leather cord unless other color is specified) plus 5 bottlecaps with image decopauged into it for $10. Can't choose just 5... Additional bottlecaps are only $0.50. Please choose image and email it to me, email me a photo to use, or email me with a special team/hobby/idea and I will find one for you. Here are some ideas: Bottlecap Ideas

The necklace is made using a leather cord and a washer with a magnet superglued to it.

Please place all orders and requests through

I made a magnetic board to keep all of my bottle caps on. It's great for storing them and a cute decoration for any bedroom/craftroom. I used a 12*12 sheet of magnetic board.
Magnetic Boards w/choice of ribbon (cool colors or warm colors): $5

I can also put a magnet on the back of the bottlecap to use for refrigerators, lockers, white boards, desks, etc.

Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day! Mark really did a good job in making tonight a special night. He knows that my favorite memory is when I drove to Kentucky last Valentine's Day so he recreated it for me. We had the best time and grew so close as it was only our second date. I remember walking to B-Dubs on Saturday night and all the lights stringing across the street. The sidewalks were covered in snow but that was okay because he kept me warm. I remember waking up on Sunday, Valentine's Day, and going to church then Arby's for our Valentine's Day dinner. Which was fine because that gave us more time to cuddle up and watch movies. He actually sent me my Valentine's day present because we weren't supposed to be together. So, I packed it up and brought it along. He bought me Serendipity, a favorite of ours. Using a deck of cards, I made him a book of 52 reasons why I love him.

So now here we are a year later watching Serendipity and eating Arby's curled up on the couch.

He got me a shirt that says 'I love my husband' and one for himself that says 'I love my wife'. And love me he does... Its awesome that he tells me how much he loves me each and every day not just on a day like today. If I had a quarter for everytime he told me I was beautiful and that he loved me I would... well, not have to go to the change machine at the car wash every time we needed to do laundry.
