Valentines Day Hues

I don't know about you, but Valentines Day is one of my favorite holidays. I don't know...maybe it's the hopeless romantic in me that swoons at seeing the words of love and the artsy hearts. The corny "you rock!" tags on pop rocks and the conversation hearts in the bowls they place outside the teller windows of the bank.

I love the idea of incorporating more purple into the Valentines Day color scheme.

        Mmm and here's some YUMMY Valentines Day treats :)

I hope you have enjoyed this color wheel I have put together. Enjoy and have a blessed day!!

EFS: ReverseClothing

I am FINALLY back, all my blogging problems are fixed. (: I'm so excited to start blogging again!

Today, the EFS is......
*  Corina from Reverse Clothing (: *

Beautiful, vintage inspired, creative..

These pieces are sure to catch people attention, because these
are designs you can't find anywhere else!! Look at the nifty patterns. The
simple yet classy design of each item can be worn as something dressy,
and others (such as the pencil skirt below) can be worn in a business like fashion.

And as if you needed another reason to adore this shop..
Every item is REVERSIBLE!!

My favorite item from ReverseClothing is the skirt above.
It's so classy, and something I would be proud to wear
Sunday morning to church or to a fancy banquet.

~ ~ ~
I would like to let everyone know of Corina's patients.
I have put off writing this feature of her shop
 WAY too long. Life gets busy, but I want to
sincerely apologize for not posting this sooner.
I'm really sorry, Corina!!

I hope you all have a blessed day..
Sincerely, Katie Leach

I would also like to apologize to the to shops who were to be featured these past couple weeks. I hope to have them up ASAP as soon as I figure out the problem and re-write the features.

DIY Button Bracelets!! (super easy!!)

Hey there everyone!! I'm back with another tutorial.

This one's so easy you'll find yourself making TONS of them.

These button bracelets are so cute!!

Okay, so, here's what you need:

Stretchy elastic chord and buttons. (simple, right?)
Depending on the size of the button's you use, you will need about 20-30.

Cut of enough elastic chord to fit your wrist.
Knot it, and begin threading the buttons:

Take the end of your cord, and push it up through one hole of the button. Slide through the whole directly across from it.

Repeat. The buttons will magically form a cool weave type thing.

I'm sorry this is like the worst picture ever. But just look how the cord (colored blue in the pic for clarification) Goes up through one button whole and down the the hole straight across from it (or diagonally from it...whichever you prefer. It doesn't matter, it makes the same design.)

And then just keep weaving until you have it long enough to wrap
around your wrist. Knot the ends together and you're done!! (:

Hope you guys like it!! Have a blessed day (:
Sincerely, KatieL00=]
