My sister was visiting last week and as soon as I stumbled upon this cute DIY on Pinterest, I knew she would be the perfect person to enjoy doing it with me.
We’re both crafty but it’s been a little while since we’ve sat at a table working on something together. It reminded me of when we started Elisabeth Ashlie Jewelry. We had come across necklaces that we both liked at Target and thought, “we could totally make that”, so we went to Michael’s, bought supplies, and created jewelry until about 3:00 in the morning.
Since then she’s taken over the business entirely! She seeks out unique findings and really has an eye for creating simple but pretty jewelry.
I have fond memories of the summer when we started Elisabeth Ashlie, so I was really looking forward so sitting down to craft with her again.
We timed the crafting to begin at the start of David’s nap so as soon as he was asleep we jumped into it!
I loved just sitting and chatting with her. There was plenty of laughing which meant our dots were a little uneven, but it was so pleasant to simply work with our hands and catch up. She used to live down the street from me, but thankfully now it’s a quick trip to see on another.
We were both pleased with out they turned out. They are perfect little bowls for jewelry, bobby pins, paper clips, or any other little thing that needs a place.

*Ours were not a glossy finish & were prone to scratching! We thought about finishing them with a clear coat of spray paint, but weren’t sure if that would help at all. Any advice?
