I used to solely hang all the necklaces I make, but I actually think this way of storing will put less pressure on the wire. Don't get me wrong, I still have SEVERAL that are still hanging in their room, but wanted to share this cute and affordable way with you! :) PS. The cute hanging paper lanterns I got 50% off at Joanne's! They are made by Martha Stewart and I just love them. I have them hanging from both corners of the room. Since my girls share a room its a cute way to decorate each side :)

This evening I'm going to a friend's baby shower, and my assignment was to bring the diaper cake. I've never made one, but they are super easy to make! Of course there are several ways and styles to make them, but I decided to go with more of a classy look. I didn't want a stuffed animal at the top with a bunch of items dangling from it because it just reminds me too much of something you'd win at a carnival. My friend LOVES polka dots and the colors of the shower are aqua blue and light lime green. I was hoping to find green paper shred, but no luck :( Since she's having a boy I still think the brown gives it a cute touch! I used newborn size diapers and bought the big Costco size box. I've seen tutorials where they use a large container of baby powder to use in the center of the diapers, but I just used a water bottle from home and it worked great :) I wrapped each diaper with a rubber band and then used a large rubber band around all them them to secure them to the water bottle. Easy peasy!

I'm sorry, I've been such a bad blogger! Before facebook I blogged religiously and I have to say I DO MISS it! I really want to be better about updating my blog and making time for myself to craft again and post sewing projects and tutorials. I'm not even sure if any of my blog readers are out there anymore. Hello??? Is anyone still out there? Would love to hear from you again. I miss hearing from you! Its my fault I don't hear from you anymore! ;-) You CAN however, still find me on facebook for regular posts and updates. I've been designing necklaces like crazy and thought I'd share a few with you since its been awhile! I've had the opportunity to work with some amazing designers. Snazzie Drawers designed Mia's birthday headband for her pink lemonade party and Abby&Tabby designed her dress :) Swanky Baby Vintage just released their fall collection "Prep School" and I was asked to design a couple of pieces to match so they could use them in their photos! LOVE their clothes, so it was such an honor to work with them. Right now I'm just trying to enjoy the summer with my girls and do most of my designing at night. Fall is just around the corner, so I'll be coming up with some new fall designs soon. That's about all for now :) Hopefully you'll hear from me again soon!
|This was my Limited Edition Under the Sea Collection for summer. It went fast!|
|I love this vintage bicycle pendant and the overall feel of this necklace!|

Look at this cute skirt! I loved this pattern by Violet field Threads as soon as I saw it and finally got around to trying it out. I wanted to make something that will be cute for spring and love these two fabrics together. The rose print is by Heather Bailey from her Nicey Jane Collection and the polka dot is by Amy Butler.
Of course I had to finish the look with a nice sparkly neutral pearl, faceted, rhinestoned necklace. So pretty for Easter coming up!

|I don't know about you, but for me accessories are what usually "make" my outfit! I'm not a real flashy dresser, but I do love me some pretty accessories. With Valentine's Day approaching I thought I would help you accessorize your outfit on your special date :) There are so many to choose from!|
|Owls are so popular right now and look great hanging from a long rustic silver chain.|
|For those of you who like chunkier jewelry with a pop of color, this necklace just might be for you :)|
|This necklace is one of my favorites. It can be worn as a necklace or a broach! Its a great staple in my wardrobe.|
|This brass locket is also a personal favorite of mine! Not only to I love the look of it, but I love that it can fit pictures of my kids.|

Most of you in the crafting blogging world know about Lil Blue Boo's blog and are aware of Ashley's fight against cancer. An auction will be taking place February 27-29 to help raise money for her. Cancer treatments are very expensive. If you can donate items for the auction, or money, go to her blog for more info. Her story is heartbreaking AND uplifting. Her slogan is "Choose Joy". What an inspiration she is!
