    They are really cute. And I especially love that you saw glitter paint and immediately decided that you wanted blue bangles – you crack me up..and are just my kind of friend!

      For some reason, I just really wanted gold and blue bangles. I don’t know exactly why, but that’s what I was hankerin’ for.

      I’m glad that made me more endearing to you! 🙂 You’re my kind of friend, too!

      Oh, thank you, Adrianne! I think that bangle-painting might become a new hobby of mine… the colour possibilities!!

      Thank you, Kadie! Yes, I loved just the splashes of sparkle on the bracelets. You could dress ’em up, or wear them in the day. (And Tiff has great selection, I agree!)

    The anchor one is my favorite! I love the deep blue with the gold. They turned out really well.

      Thank so much, Janelle! I agree about the anchor bracelet – I might make another in a different colour!

    I have never heard of the glamour dust paint. Cool! Your bracelets are cute!

      Thank you, Danni! The Glamour Dust is actually pretty neat – it has fine specks of glitter, so it’s easy to work with and isn’t “TOO” glittery, if you know what I mean? 😉

    SO fun!! I can’t decide which one is my favorite, the anchors or the stripes! I think you should just send me both. Come to think of it, I have some spare bangles downstairs just waiting to be painted…gotta run!

    I love these Tara! The anchor one is my favorite, too 🙂 These would have to be “weekend wear” for me, though, because I’m on a computer all day at work so they clank around on my desk. Boo. I have the glitter paint at home, too – I just have to go play with it! Very cute!

      Oh, that WOULD be annoying – the clanking of the bangles on the desk! But weekend wear is fun too – I know that sometimes bangles just don’t “go” with yoga pants (my weekday wear) either!

      I’ll be watching to see what you do with the glitter paint! It’s fun stuff!

    Tara these bangles are so fun! My in-laws actually retired early, sold their house, and for 10 years lived on a catamaran! My mother-in-law would have LOVED these

      Holy adventurous, Batman! That is seriously cool! I’m sure that they loved all sorts of boat-related things! Did you ever spend time on the boat with them?

        We went on some overnight sails but never any long distance ones. It’s super cool!

    love love love these!!! That anchor bracelet is so darling (and I had to scroll back up to make sure you hadn’t cut all those anchors out by hand – whew!)

    Great job!

      Oh no – cut them out by hand?!?! You’d see one anchor on the bracelet. By then, I probably would have sobbed out of frustration (or gone cross-eyed)! I’m so glad that you love them, Anne! Thank you!

    Tara, me and my nautical-lovin’ self are drooling over these bracelets! And navy and gold is so hot right, you definitely have your finger on the pulse of fashion! (As if I’m an authority to say so.) Also, the glittery glam is such an added bonus to this look. Sharing this on my FB page tomorrow!

      Oh, I’m so glad that you love them like I do, Lauren! Navy and gold – YES. Actually… all things golden and all things blue are pretty cool by me. I will try not to laugh out loud when you say I have fashion sense. But instead, I will throw my boa over my shoulder and say, “Of course I do.. dahhhling….”

      Thanks for the share, lady! I appreciate it!

      Awww… thanks, Sky. You’re so sweet. Paint and I have an understanding… some of the time… but I promise you – I have my fails. Sometimes in epic proportions. 😉

    My goodness, you have some serious talent. I am not sure I would have the patience to do all that taping. Not only did you have the patience but you made it look great.

      Awww… thanks, Amy! Honestly, the taping was the most stressful part. I’ve had some pretty fantastically terrible paint-“bleeding” moments before!

    Gorgeous – I love your navy and gold paint color choices! I just painted an outdoor table the same colors – they look amazing together! The anchors are so adorable!
