DIY Macrame Bracelet
You’ll need: 4 yards of 0.5mm chinese knotting cord a connector or charm an embroidery needle a pair of scissors flat nose pliers (optional) a lighter (optional) Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths. Fold the 20 inch piece in half, pull the loop through the ring, fold it over the ring, and pull the rest of the cord through the loop. Repeat the step on the other side of the ring. These strands will be anchored and remain stationary. Center the 30 inch cord under the two middle strands. Fold the right cord over the middle strands and under the left cord. Pull the left cord under the right and middle strands and through the loop on the right side. Pull tightly and slide the knot up to the top. Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull the right cord under the left and middle strands and through the loop on the left side. Pull tightly and repeat the steps – left, right, left, right . . . Continue knotting until the desired length is reached. Keep in mind that the clasp will take up approximately half an inch. To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 3-4 knots along the backside. Pliers will help pull the needle through the tight knots. Repeat the same step on the other cord. After sewing up both knotting cords, trim away any excess. Save the scraps and melt the tips with a lighter to seal it for extra hold. Repeat the same exact step on the second half of the bracelet. To make a sliding closure, shape the bracelet into a circle and overlap the middle strands. Use scraps to temporarily tie the cords together at each end. Take the 10 inch cord and center it under the strands. Start tying square knots exactly the same way the bracelet was executed. Stop at about half an inch and sew the knotting cords into the backside of the closure. Remove the temporary ties. The two sets of middle strands are now the adjustable ties of the bracelet. Adjust to fit the wrist and tie each end into knots. Trim away any excess. Your adjustable knotted bracelets are finished!! xx

Unique Tips on How to Find Your Soulmate
Sharing your life with someone requires the right person and the right circumstances. The reality is that finding that special person in your life is not always easy, especially when you are searching, it can feel like a painstaking and tedious process. While there are no magical solutions to finding that special someone if you want to improve your odds of finding that right person, here are a few unique tips that are sure to help. Try Matchmaking If you are willing to have your friends set you up with someone, it may be time to try out a professional service. Even if you are feeling uncertain about professional services, trying matchmaking services can harness the power of amorous experts and tap into romantic reserves that you would never have access to otherwise. Relying on their professional opinions and expertise can give you the jumpstart that your love life needs. With professional guidance and suggestions, you can help get you onto a path to long-lasting romance. Let Your Friends Make Introductions Your friends are a great resource when it comes to finding someone special. Whether you are meeting during a group get-together or being set up with someone they know, utilizing your existing relationships can be immensely helpful. Because of your unique and special relationship with your friends, that bond and their knowledge of you can be a wonderful tool in finding someone you can connect with. Dive Into the Online Dating Pool In today’s day and age, online dating has become an everyday practice for young suitors. Regardless of what type of connection you are searching for, there is likely a dating service and platform out there for you. While you can sign up for every platform available to you, it is more important to understand how to set up a dating profile than it is overexposure. Instead of trying to balance multiple platforms at once, make a concerted and clear effort with a few options that can convey the message you want and attract the types of love interests that you are looking for. Try Something New There is nothing wrong with old-fashioned in-person connections when you are searching for a love connection. Whether you sign up for a cooking, fitness or writing workshop, you may be surprised at the type of connection you can make when trying something new. You never know if you will make a friend over a shared experience or find the love of your life. What you will know is that you bonded over this shared experience and were able to connect over something new and exciting. Say Yes to Possibilities It can be easy to decline invitations or opportunities out of fear or apathy. If you are someone who frequently turns down new opportunities, you may be missing out on the chance to find your special person. You never know where you may meet your soulmate, and saying yes to possibilities, experiences and adventures can open you up to the opportunity to meet them. Next time, instead of politely declining and sticking to your normal routine, say yes and see what life has in store for you. If nothing else, you will have had a fun, exhilarating time that pushed you outside of your comfort zone. Don’t Forget to Work on Yourself What many people forget about when searching for love is that a couple is a pair of people. Each being an individual who has their own wants and needs and is embarking on their journey. If you want to find your soulmate, you need to be ready for love and healthy relationships. Take some time to determine what you want out of a relationship, time to understand who you are and the big stuff matters. The reality is that relationships take reflection, energy and work if they are going to work in the long haul. Finding your soulmate is not always the easiest process. This person often does not fall into your lap at the most opportune moment; however, if you are searching for love, these tips can help you in your quest for your next love connection.
