Mapquesting

1. Have you used Mod Podge?
2. Do you really call it Mod Podge? Because I am pretty sure I have been going around this entire week calling it Hodge Podge.

Um anyway.
So I had the greatest idea to upcycle some bracelets (see: I saw it on an Etsy shop and thought, Hey I could do that for a fraction of the cost) and this gunk was in order. Little did I know it’s just a fancy version of Elmer’s glue. Well, maybe it’s more than that, but it certainly dried on my hands like Elmer’s glue. And it peeled off in really big handprint-sized flakes like Elmer’s glue (which, in my opinion, is the best thing when you’re having to work with this kind of stuff). So consider me sold.

Anyway, I took a plain bangle from the jewelry box and cut up strips of a map and voila – instant cool bracelet. Now I need to scour the Goodwills around town for more bangles because this baby looks awesome. And, y’know, I need more excuses to play with Hodge Podge.
