DIY: Chic Jewelry Holder out of a Old Window Frame!

My New Jewelry Holder.

Here it is! I love it and it covers up the breaker switch box!

Here it is! I love it and it covers up the breaker switch box!

A couple of weeks ago when Blair and I were organizing our apartment, he broke the news to me about a newfound addiction of mine.

Apparently I have a lot of costume jewelry… and keeping it in a brown cardboard box was no longer appropriate.

So being the awesome man and husband he is, he decided to help me out on creating a totally adorable and chic jewelry holder made out of an old window frame!

Using an old window frame we had on hand (Thank you, Black family!), an old pillow case with a rad print and some newly purchased chicken wire from Home Depot, we both finished this project with a huge smile on both of our faces. We LOVED the finished product!

So I want to share it with all of you! The steps are below in a new photo format I’m trying out! *Fingers Crossed* Just click on the first photo on the left to get started!

Enjoy and happy crafting!

A Fresh Cut – Going Short

Short Hair.

I did it – I cut my hair. And no, I didn’t cry! I figure it will grow back, and since I’ve been letting it grow out for the last few months, it was time for some change.

Enter my inspiration: Julianne Hough and her Safe Haven haircut. *JAW DROP*

It’s seriously chic, edgy and fresh. And it’s exactly what I wanted after walking around with long hair like practically every other girl. I’m not the type to dye my hair over and over, so I’ve always gravitated towards just chopping my locks off. I’ve had long long hair, pixie short hair and styles in between – and I’ve got to say that this is probably one of my favorite haircuts of all time.

If you are in the Fort Lewis area, definitely head down South to downtown Olympia for your haircut. Lindsey Hammer, a talented sylist at Salon Paixao, gave me this new haircut and I sure do love it!

P.S. Here is a before and after of my hair!

Long hair isn’t always better! 🙂

Baby Love Onesies

Baby Fever.

There is a major case of baby fever going on at the Draper household at the moment – well, at least for me! One of my dearest and best friends Crystal is having a baby girl here soon and I’ve gone into a serious DIY Baby mode as the big day gets even closer.

Hand sewn “rag” flowers, custom fabric printing and all things chic and girly have been my life the last couple of days. I think there is nothing cuter than a baby in a chic onesie, so I hope Crystal and lil’ baby Dorman love the things I’m making for them – because I sure love them!

This is just one of a few that I’ve made for Crystal’s baby shower coming up and I’ve fallen in love with making custom and from the heart onesies. This is definitely one thing that I’ll keep doing for the years (and babies) to come. 🙂
