DIY Suggestions

Since opening my Etsy shop I have been going through years of materials that I have collected. I have so many stones, lockets, vintage beads…. the list goes on and on. In an effort to make room for new ideas and get rid of things that are super cool that other people will use. I started listing some of the stuff on eBay. In the middle of that process I realized that this stuff is so cool and that I could use it for wrapping presents at Christmas, making cool hair accessories, gluing them to magnets, crap I could do about a million things with them. Needless to say, I have kept some stuff.

Then I made the mistake of searching for bobby pin blanks on Etsy. I had no idea there were so many types and finishes. CRAFT ATTACK.

So if you see me with 20 different colors of beads in my hair you will know what happened.

    So incredibly Fun. I think you should host a lady craft and beverages soiree on the day after Thanksgiving when almost every American is at the mall. MAKE your first round of Christmas gifts xoxox oozing wishes that I could be there

    I've always wanted to go to a 'crafternoon' … But you would need to be there! I can't wait to see what you come up with…

    It would be fun to get together to craft. Since I've been making more jewelry, every corner of this place looks like a crafternoon corner. I spent most of this morning cleaning off the kitchen table.
