The BOMB

Welcome to the BOMB.



The Blog Of the "Mother" of Bandit.
Bandit is my Hairless Chinese Crested--he's the "normal" one. I, on the other hand, am unrepentantly "pet-crazy." You know the type--the spinster who lives in the haunted house three blocks over with 72 cats...okay, so I don't have 72 cats, and my house isn't haunted--but my dogs wardrobe is better than mine! Need I say more? :~)
I've never been consistant at journaling, so the timing of my blogs will be sporadic at best. I just hope they are as entertaining to you as they are to me; however, be forewarned: Most of my blogs will be about The BaldOne. In spite of his Don King "do," I think he's just as cute as any of the Brothers B!
Now, if I can just remember not to get him wet--or feed him after midnight...

About Me

My photo
My bags are packed and I'm always ready to seek out an adventure with Bandit and Moggy in tow. Bandit is my ten year old Chinese Crested, who I frequently call The Bald One or The BaldOne Boy (like he was one of the Baldwin Brothers). Moggy’s full name is Pip-Moggy. He’s my gansta-resuce kitty. I couldn’t decide between Pip (which are the spots on die and domino tiles) and Moggy (or Moggie when I mistakenly thought he was a she), so I combined the two. Moggy refers to the British term for "cat of unknown parentage .” So in essence, I have an almost bald dog, and I’ve named my cat “Spot.”

Possible Pinterest Bracelet Instructions

I pinned a corded anchor bracelet on Pinterest last year. Since that time the blog (with instructions or sales info)  has been removed.  I have been asked how to make the bracelet and I don't know.  But the more I look at it, I believe it could be simple enough to recreate. So here are the steps I would try: 

1) cut two lengths of cord a little longer than the circumference of your wrist. 

2) fold one length of cord in half and apply a crimping end-cap with a ring on the end (maybe using glue inside  the cap for a more secure hold) then using a jump ring attach the anchor charm to that loop. Set the first loop with anchor charm aside. 

3) fold the second length of cord so there is a tail of about 3-4 inches, place a crimping barrel over the loop and the opposite free end (so there are three cord widths inside the crimping barrel and a loose tail sticking out.  I would NOT crimp the barrel at this point. 

4) intertwine the two looped cords (like you would intertwine two rubber bands)

5) wrap the intertwined loops around your wrist, close the looped tail over the anchor, adjust until it fits your wrist but can also be taken off (by unlooping the anchor), trim the tail,  and crimp the barrel to secure everything.  

I'm sure there's probably an easier way of doing it--but that's probably what I would try to do to duplicate the bracelet in the photo. Hope that helps.
