Plastic Animal Photo Holders

Plastic Animal Photo Holders
One of my newest DIYs... These little guys to hold some photos! I saw them originally on Photojojo, (love this store, I HIGHLY recommend it)... and I decided to make my own.

My favorite is the deer. I will be keeping him for myself. :)

My other favorite-- the bull. I stuck a straight pin in his nose and then twisted it up to make a nose ring. :P

And these little guys are for sale in my Etsy store:

I also have quite a few Polaroid Cameras in my Etsy store if anyone is interested! The coolest cameras (like the rainbow Land Camera) usually sell VERY fast, so if you like it I would grab it before it gets snatched up! I ship all over the world!

More Bows

Bows
Headband bows, shoe bows, regular bows, bows for shirts, bows for coats... I am still not bored with them!  These headbands are my newest creations and I have been wearing them ALL THE TIME. And I also tried doing the little beehive hairdo that Aya of Strawberry Koi posted. Its the perfect hairstyle for headbands. :)

And more shoe bows. Right now I am really liking how these shoes blend in a bit with my skin. Any time high heels blend with your skin or tights, they are more flattering.

I've finally written the tutorial for these little fabric bows-- they can go anywhere, seriously!

Here is a link to my tutorial on Burdastyle.

Also, I have a TON of stuff up in my Etsy shop right now-- including this patchwork fur coat. I love this coat-- I suppose I wouldn't be too upset if it didn't sell. :) Check out my shop now!

Polaroid One Step Land Camera

Polaroid One Step
I am SO excited to show you the newest addition to my Polaroid family-- the Polaroid One Step Land Camera! To me, this is one of the best looking Polaroids out there. And I think Polaroids are pretty darn good looking-- but this one is tied for first with my Grandpa Deedo's brown leather SX-70.


I found the little guy in the basement of an antique store in Mooresville, Indiana. Mr. Land Camera was all alone in a dreary basket full of old leather covered 35mm Argus cameras... and when I saw him and realized what I was looking at, I literally gasped! I have been hunting for a rainbow Land Camera for a very long time. 


Beautiful. 


Home is...


My first shot with the camera. I really like how the film always distorts the colors in the photos-- it's like the snow is sherbet or something. Tomorrow I am going to take some real snow photos with my Polaroid 103 camera. 


I do have good news though-- today I found ANOTHER Polaroid One Step Land Camera and I will be listing it for sale on Etsy tomorrow. It needs a good home! So watch out for it tomorrow. :)


Ok. I'm off to figure out how to make one of these. (!!!)

Leather Bow Belt

DIY Leather Bow Belt
So here's my latest crafty thing-- a leather bow belt. I think bows, animals, and flowers are almost at a tie for my favorite things. My little sister got this adorable little bow belt for Christmas and I loved it so much that I tried to make one for myself. Honestly, this may be one of my favorite things I've made. Mostly because I took my time to make it look decent and it is much more practical than most of what I make. How often can you really wear jeans covered in poetry or dresses in flowers? ;)

Pink, white, and black:
  Depression Glass
My Mom's been teaching me a lot about old dishes this month, and I got some depression glass for a great deal in the little antique store in my town. Mmm. Jeffrey Campbell Pumps
Jeffrey Campbell shoes-- one of my favorites, ever.


 I'm off to work on more projects-- I am off of school this month and I am spending it applying for jobs and figuring out stuff. And working on those New Years' resolutions:
 1. Take more (and better) pictures. Read my books on photography.
 2. Don't buy crappy stuff. And don't buy stuff just because it is cheap. Goodwill is for treasure hunts and Walmart is only for food. And shampoo. :)
3. Have fun with school. (That one's not too hard.) Teddies

Here's the tutorial for the belt!
