Quick & Easy DIY: Necklace Display

 I was in desperate need of a necklace display for my Printed Peaks necklaces. I already had two circular wooden plaques that I had used but painted over in white. You can pick those up at any craft store, I got mine at Michael's. You need: - two cup hooks 1-1/2"(found at Home Depot) - two painted wooden plaques - an exacto knife - washi tape
I merely taped in strips fairly close together. It actually looks like you did a great job at painting stripes. You could even do a bit of a gingham look if you desired as well. This is super easy and helps you keep your necklaces from being tangled.

Have a wonderful weekend!

//By the Beach//

I went for a run down by the beach last week and the fog was incredibly thick. I walked along the shore and explored a bit.  The simplicity of hearing the waves hit the beach and finding obscure objects and wondering their origin left me feeling so weightless and carefree.

DIY Leather Wallet

I made this little wallet because I just absolutely love leather and have a bit left over from other projects.
To make this leather wallet you will need:
-2 colors of leather
-an exacto knife
-sewing machin
Cut two pieces of leather, one larger piece in one color (brown) and one smaller piece (white)
Sew the smaller piece right sides together as shown.
Turn inside out and you already basically have a little pouch
Cut out a heart
Sew right side of heart to inside of your pouch
Be careful when cutting out your heart, pinch the leather (brown) in order to cut away from leather underneath. Use your exacto knife to get close enough to the edge of your seam.
Cut out a hole on the top flap and on the inside to attach your leather handle
Enjoy your sweet new leather wallet!

Thanks for stopping in!
Happy weekend!

My Sunday was filled with all of the above.
Hanging with the pets.
Doing the necessary grocery shopping and laundry.
Along with some coffee time with my sweet boy.
Some sleeping in and some relaxation.

Hope your weekend was grand!
