Caroline and I started this craft a while back and just last weekend got back to it. Ours didn't turn out nearly as beautiful as Kristen's, but we had a great time and Caroline loved painting her own beads. We ended up stringing a necklace and a bracelet out of our creations. I think we might have to try this one again and this time, Mama might have to be in charge of smoothing out the beads after Caroline rolls them up. If we can get these beads to turn out a little smoother, I think we'll have a better end result.
