It is officially summer time which means lazy afternoons on the couch reading a book, drinking too much La Croix, and running up the electricity bill because we live in Los Angeles and it gets hella hot here.

But then I realized that a craft is what you make of it, and we all know, I like a small handheld sized craft. So I looked up some youtube videos on the basic knots and within 5 minutes, I was on my way to finishing my first macrame keychain.
