So proud of awesome fashion blogger, Abby Hathorn- I had to share her blog post… Look for the link to her TV interview. I love how Abby incorporates new and vintage finds for a fun, fresh look.

Another addiction

Standard

I may have a little, bitty problem; you see, I am addicted to crafting supplies, namely jewelry making goodies. I have piles and piles of lovely baubles, beads and supplies to create with. Some things sit in my sometimes well-organized craft bins, but not these pretties! Look at the wonderful leather I have collected so far! Ahhh, beautiful!

I know I will enjoy making bracelets like this guitar pick bracelet and much more with this luscious leather 🙂

A little bit for a little bit…

A little bit for a little bit...

This little pendant necklace was created for a little girl’s 7th birthday. Her sweet BFF commissioned it with a little help from her mom 🙂

I love doing custom pieces like this. It is especially fun when I am allowed free reign, like this particular repeat customer give me 🙂

Fun with corks!

You can make these babies in no time and here’s the proof!

It all started innocently enough; I entered a giveaway from The Wooden Bee a bit ago. I won, lucky me! I purchased a sweet upcycled bulletin board kit from her amazing Etsy shop with the gift certificate I won. I got hooked, sucked in, and now, I am creating thumbtacks with the cool corks I received from her too! I stamped a birdy on there on a whim and am happy with the result.

 

Take a look at the cool bulletin board I made with a lot of help from Bee! I did glue the corks in there, but she did the rest 🙂 I am happy that I made a couple of thumbtacks to go with; they look way better than generic plastic ones! 

 

Check out Bee’s cool, sustainable crafts, decor and supplies. Her blog is pretty fun and has great tutorials like the wine cork thumbtacks too!

Yup, I glued those babies into the frame; I am one crafty diva!

More fun with Spring colors

Standard

I have been eyeing the Pantone Spring 2013 colors for a while now; my last post was dedicated to the color of the year, Emerald. While it is my favorite, I am also in love with Dusk Blue. I have a few fun blue finds to share with you.

As you may know, Etsy is my fave place to look for inspiration and, of course, to shop. I found this lovely Granny Squares Purse from LaBelleMadeleine on Etsy. I love her shop and have many sweet items from Luisa.

I adore these sweet skinny khakis from OldNavy.com– too cute and fun!

Lastly, I had to show off my blue bracelet; I used sodalite cubes and some sterling silver metalwork.

So here are a few blue things to get you ready for Spring!
