Still Raining

So much fun stuff! Today I made lots of bow barrettes and a couple jewelry items. I will show them to you!

First, a big necklace with a rock and pendant. Also, a new bracelet.

Then, another new bracelet and two pairs of dangley earrings.

So that's some of what I've been doing this weekend. But what I'm really excited for is these barrettes that I'm making with ribbon and stuff:

Dice and vintage plane barrettes

Airforce and button barrettes!

I adore making these barrettes, it's a blast. It's rather addicting actually. I made all of them today, so they're pretty fast too.

Other than making things, I dyed my own hair and bleached some of my brother's. That was pretty fun. I think my next making things project is going to be making a large tote out of my car's old upholstery. I reupholstered my car six years ago and the upholstery became a slip cover for the couch I had in my room. Since we have been redoing my room, the couch got thrown but I didn't want to throw out the upholstery because it's so cool. I will probably have a new tote/purse/both soon.

And speaking of purses, here are some delightful things (including purses) which I love from my favorite site Pinup Girl Clothing.

So these are some lovely items. I want the purse quite a lot, I must say. I'm glad I dyed my hair black again, I like it's normal color, but black is new and fun.

leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for
everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes."
