I finally made a new jewelry holder and purged a whole bunch of earrings, necklaces, etc. that I don’t need or haven’t worn in years. Trying to clean my closet from things that should be in there other than clothes and shoes.
This past weekend was pretty quiet so I finally worked on a super easy project to get all my little beauty products and bracelets from cluttering my table tops with this three tier stand.
Some designs I made recently! These are cards that my sister wanted to send her girls that she wanted to asked to be her bridesmaids! She wrote everything, and I designed the cards. They were a total hit. I’m thinking of doing more and selling them online. Maybe offering personalized card designs and such.
Hope everyone had a great Christmas and have exciting plans for New Years! Me, it was a good one. Lil’ sister and finacée didn’t make it home so their presents will have to wait till they are able to make it to the island!
…or whatever you would like to call it! Dressing up for Halloween is always fun and last year I came to work as a Hogwarts Student. Of course I was in the Gryffindor House! This year I came to work as a black cat. Easy enough, except I really wanted one of those lace cat ears. Could not find one anywhere in Seattle, or at least in the north end…..
As you may have read on an earlier post, my lil’ sister is getting married next year. We have already found the event location on the and they are finallizing their lists, we are now starting to move on to the “fun stuff” as she calls it. One thing on her list, glitter blue shoes. She really wants them to pop from under her dress, whichever one she decides on.
While we looked at glittered shoes at department stores, most were out of the price range, so the next thought DIY! I found this awesome blog that does just that: Lauryn Gallowy Photography post: Handmade Weddings: Clean, Classic, & Crisp Glitter Heels.
Aren’t they awesome?!!
One of things I love to do in my free time is make jewelry for friends and family! And this year, I’m on a bracelet kick. I’ve been getting several supplies ready for a weekend of jewelry making in July! I love finding new projects and a friend sent me a link to Craft Gawker. It’s like pinterest, but just for craft projects! I found some new bracelet projects to try!!! Yay!
Here are a couple that I’m definitely trying:
And Not quite a bracelet, but still awesome. Definietly making this for xmas present for the girls!
…What DIY projects are you planning to do this summer?
What you need for this project is some glass candle holders, some various sizes of glass vases or glass bowls (with or without lids), and strong epoxy or glue. I got all my glass from the Dollar Store, which makes this project under $10.
