The Answer my Friend is Blowing in the wind Blog Hop

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea ?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free ?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Today's craft challenge for Her Craft Krea8tions was to make something that "blows in the wind". Each design team member received beads, chimes, nightmare fishing line, a jingle bell, and a twirly thingie dooie (that's a technical term!). Everyone was encouraged to add things from their stash to make it their own and to go "green" without buying anything additional!!!!

With this all being said, everyone and the fishing line were not on "speaking terms". Lynne Kirsh had knots galore and would give up and pitch it and her one cat would return it expecting her either to throw again or finish ... your guess is as good as her's! Several never ever want to see fishing line again!!!!! Thus, the grand prize will be 100 yards of fishing line .... ha ha, just kidding!!!! It will be a surprise package to one lucky recipient that remarks on everyone's stop along the way!

 This is my chime/mobile I made. We were provided a bag of goodies to use. I decided on the clear and blue beads. I found the bigger glass beads at Michael's and knew they would be perfect and look pretty when the wind blew them. I was right. I wish I could show you how pretty they are. The chime/ mobile is soft and soothing to hear. The chime/mobile is about 17-18 inches long. 

I used the hot glue gun to glue the bottom bead to the next one after stringing them together on the fishing twine. I wanted to make sure they would not come off. I also hot glued the twine in place on the large ring after tying a very secure knot in each piece. 

The line-up is as follows:
