When I first opened up my etsy store back in March I made a ribbon belt out of white satin ribbon and a white flower that I put a little fake diamond in the center. It was one of the first things I sold. I think they are really cute but I never made any more. Lately I have been noticing them a lot of pinterest ( which I am completely addicted to by the way! ) My friend Katrina is a very fun and out going person. She loves wearing feathers and fun outfits. She has a birthday this week and I was looking for something to make her. I decided to make some belts for her. Here is how it started.
I started with about 3 yards or so of satin ribbon ( I get mine from the Dollar General and its REALLY nice for only being a dollar! )
Then I decided what I wanted to put on it. I went with some shabby chic flowers I bought off of etsy about 6 months ago and still haven't used all of them. They were a little plain though so I added a pearl in the center of both of them
I added them to the ribbon right in the center. The put just a TINY bit of glue in the center to attach them but I knew I wanted to add some feathers!
I busted out my guinea feathers and started glueing away until I was happy. The pictures turned out HORRIBLE because it was black on silver and I could not get my lighting right ( did I mention this was at midnight and everyone else in my house was fast asleep? )
I love the way it turned out! I decided she needed two! I busted out some new ribbon in a lighter color and decided to do something pretty instead of funky. I LOVED how this one turned out
So what you think? I think I need to make some for me for church to wear over some plain dresses. I don't know if with kids it would stay tied on my back though! haha
So my lack of posting lately has been due to a number of things.
I had two hard drives crash and thought I lost everything on them ( which was mainly pictures! ) I cried...a LOT!
We are in the process of buying a house.
Our house in Texas hasn't sold yet.
My boy started school which I thought was going to do WONDERS for me. It has done the opposite. I haven't had time to do ANYTHING! I haven't gotten hardly anything done. My house is a mess and my poor daughters nap schedule is SOOOOO messed up that mainly she just doesn't nap which is also killing me. She is super cranky and I don't have time to work out or blog. Boooooo
I am trying.
Here's hoping I can figure out a better schedule for me and my daughter.
good news is the house we are buying is wonderful and we are just waiting to make sure the appraisal goes well and we get the loan from the bank. Also, my son LOVESSSSS school.
I'll try and blog more soon. TRY being the key word. But I promise I will TRY!
