Hey my blog was in desperate need of a face lift.  It's kind of like when you've lived in the same space at home for a while and you switch the furniture around.  It feels refreshing, fun and re motivates you.  Am I the only one who feels that way?

I came across Jessica's blog North Carolina Grown and noticed that she had done several other blog makeovers and was really impressed with her skill as well as her creativity.  I was sold!

What do you think about it?  I think it looks much cleaner, fresher and I love the new simplicity of it.  I am sooo loving the new look here.  It has given me a little boost in my creative life as well. 

I have also created a new facebook page for this blog so click on the link over on the side bar and like my facebook page.

Easter weekend is coming, hoping you are planning lots of bunnies and chocolaty things to keep you busy.  My kids are looking forward to two Easter egg huts.  I'm just looking forward to being with them.

Happy Easter everyone.

Made by Me Mondays - Repurposed Leather Makeup Pouches

I wanted to make as many of my Christmas presents last year as I could.  I saw a friend of mine making leather pouches, bags, laptop cases etc out of old leather jackets and other leather items.  I really wanted to try my hand at it as well.
I went to Frenchies, one of our local thrift shops, and started digging for leather items.  I found a black leather men's coat and started with that.  Then I hit up my friends for their old colored leather purses to add some pizazz to the make up pouches
I made these for two of my niece's that live close by, Bella and Duck.  I added some lip gloss and girly stuff to them.  I think they appreciate the handmade stuff as much as I do they are pretty crafty creatures themselves.

I love that this old nasty coat didn't end up in a landfill somewhere but has been given a second lease on life.
