This Christmas season I've been trying to branch out to crafting not just jewelry but into other things that more people would like to have - today I made this earphone cord keeper with free printable packaging to share with you. It's easy, takes up less than an hour of your time and would be a cute stocking stuffer for your techie friend or an accessory for you! :)
The holiday season is my favorite time of the year! To celebrate, I will be dedicating all my DIY's for the month of December to the holidays, including a few gift giving ideas. I always love gifting handmade jewelry, and when I saw this inspiration I knew what my first holiday DIY would be.
Contributor post by Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth What do you give to someone who already has everything? A DIY leather pouch made just by you for all of their little somethings. I'll teach you how to modify a craft store leather bag kit to make this project modern, well made, and cost effective while still being the work of your hands.
Whew. After four days without power, thank God it has been restored. So what have I been doing during my down time?
Do you have a scissor, old papers, beads, old clothes, a needle, swing machine, old nail polishes, fabric colors, threads and any other unnecessary thing in your store from years?
I used to be so obsessed with decoden - for those of you who don't know, it's a trend from Japan, see here . Heck, I used to be so obsessed with lolita fashion. But now that I've mellowed out, I've only been enjoying only partially-embellished stuff - and since I've been inspired by a video I seen yesterday I wanted to create some decoden-inspired gear. So I made this double bow necklace out of polymer cay. Read on for the tutorial!

A great way to incorporate your color scheme is to paint some details of your party to match. A huge trend lately are little plastic animals. Painted and usually attached to various things, these cheap toys are modern and fun. Use them at your next shower or birthday party as favor box toppers.
I've had this gold leaf pen kit for a while, just waiting for the perfect application. And I think these sweet little bowls and dishes are just right! I have bowls and trays scattered all over my apartment to catch my earrings and necklaces that I seem to shed as soon as I walk through the front door. Place a necklace or pair of earrings in one, tie it up with cellophane, and you have a pretty handmade gift!
