I D.I.M.

As in DID.IT.MYSELF! Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a craft-a-holic but I rarely post my projects because many are unfinished and frankly I don't have time to write tutorials ....however I fell in love with 2 DIY projects I saw recently and just had to share these. BTW both called for a chunky gold chain and not one craft store was selling one big enough so I actually bought 2 necklaces that were HIDEOUS Tiffany style wannabe necklaces. I took them apart....and gave them NEW LIFE!

My chain wasn't a curb link so I wove it a bit tighter than the instructions HERE.  The pictures don't do it justice though.....but I'm working on my photography skills. It came out gorgeous in person and the colors have me dreaming of summer!!!!!!!!!! These bracelets were inspired by Aurèlie Bidermann‘s Do Brazil bracelets.....just much more affordable!

The 2nd project I have been working on is this gorgeous number which I plan on wearing out for V-day! Thanks to Mayra from Life is Bananas for posting this gorgeous DIY......I used the same color scheme...I just hope mine looks as good on as hers did :)

And just in case you're wondering ....that magazine in the background is Next Direct! I just got it in the mail and I'm wondering why the hell of never heard of this kick butt catalog before....they have gorgeous kids and adult clothes and you get $10 off your first purchase! Check them out!
