These are the necklaces I made with my remaining novelty Kleenex tissue box cut-outs.  More tropical than the sweetly pastel first batch (except for you, I Scream interloper), they make me miss summer.  Which is fitting because I finished them while watching that steamy (and seamy) summer blockbuster Magic Mike.  The gritty tale of a male stripper-slash-aspiring-furniture-maker-with-a-heart-of-gold starring real-life ex-stripper and "sexiest man alive" Channing Tatum was fun enough but left me wanting more.  (No, not more of that.  Believe you me, of that you see plenty.)  No, like any crafter worth her rhinestones, I wanted to find out just what inspired Mike's domestic design dreams, and if anything would ever come of them.  But then, maybe the somewhat open ending was more satisfying than a neat-and-tidy deus ex machina.  Because with themes this dark, nothing beats keeping it real.
