Things I’m learning during this process greatly include the fact that self-portraits really aren’t that easy. Especially when you’re trying to take a picture of you wearing a pair of earrings. Maybe I need to do some reading on other blogs for suggestions on how to not look like a total goober while doing this.
Here are five days worth of handmade goodness:
Feb 16, 2013: This purple chunky bracelet is from a local gal that goes by Nikolina. Sadly, I think she’s closed her shop for now. Hopefully she’ll be back soon!
Feb 17, 2013: I’m ashamed to say that I can’t remember the name of this company. It’s Mad-something and these are a gorgeous pair of earrings that my mother-in-law gave me as a gift last year. What makes them extra special to me is that they’re made by a girl out of Michigan (my mother land). 🙂
Feb 18, 2013: Another earring shot, this time I can tell you where they came from. This redhead girl I know :cough:me:cough: makes and sells them in her store. Handmade Escapade. Have you heard of it?
Feb 19, 2013: What’s that? More Handmade Escapade swag? For shame! This little buddy is a new design of mine, right before St. Patrick’s Day. Beer, Irish inspired-designs and handmade koozies? Sounds like my kind of party!
Feb 20, 2013: I cannot begin to tell you how awesome this things is. I found it on Etsy by a seller named Dundry Hill. Holy cow, this lady rocks my socks off. It’s a diaper wristlet that you can drop into your purse for daytrips. Oh…and there’s a matching changing pad that goes in the built in pocket. AND the fabric is freaking adorable. Jealous? I’m sure you are!
