Upcycled necklace

I just wanted to share with you something I’ve made….

I had this necklace lying around and it was clear to me that I wasn’t going to wear it, like… ever! It’s just not my cup of tea. So I was left with three choices: either throw it away, donate it to my local thrift shop or make something else out of it. Needles to say: I chose the last option.

These are the before and after photos:

A new year is upon us (free printable calendars)

2014 is just around the corner, patiently waiting for us to welcome it with beautiful fireworks. I’ve got a good feeling about 2014. Somehow it’s full of promise and I can’t wait to find out what’s in store for me!

At the end of every year I go on a quest and search the internet for printable calendars. You won’t believe the beautiful designs!  Time to start off the new year in style with these lovely 2014 calendars…
