For those who don't know what TOMS is/or stands for: 

TOMS- the power of One for One... In 2006 American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that wold match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. ♥

D.I.Y. headband <3

supplies ;)

1. Start by cutting three pieces of leather... long enough to braid and fit around your head.
2. Tie a knot and then start braiding leather (hold up to head for measurement) I usually leave enough on the ends to tie or add beads, feathers to!
3. Find a cute little or big flower and attach where ever you fancy (gorilla glue or hot glue works).

I have a super cute feather look too! Stay tuned...

I've been in the crafty mood lately...obvi. As I was playing around in my work room I came across this basket full of seed beads! My mind started rolling on all the possibilities... and the project began. I sort of just made it up as I went along :) If your interested in DIY (doing it yourself), here are a few things you will need:

1. seed beads (any colors you want)
2. a small metal bar, that I attached to small jump rings to (I actually used an earring post for making earrings and just curled up the little loops on each end to hold the jump rings)
3. regular ole' clear fishing line
4. small jewelry making tools 
5. chain and/or leather to make the "necklace" part

and the fun began...

I ran out of chain so I used leather (below) to finish...

My first Project Restyle! I had these blessing rings hanging around from Whitney Howard Designs and wanted to make use of them :) They could be used for a number of things including necklaces, keychains and etc. Here's how I restyled mine into bracelets!

Here's what you need...
Blessing ring(s) of your choice, chain (aprox. 12-14" depending on wrist size), two large jump rings, two small jump rings, two lobster clasps and the two small jewelry making tools (used for opening jump rings). Everything is double since I made two.

Step one: attach large jump rings to sides of blessing rings
Step two: attach chain to large jump rings (can be your choice of chain and length can vary)
Step three: attach small jump ring with lobster clasp to the end of chain
Step four: attach to arm :) all finished! 

This is only the beginning :)
