Instagram Love

This past week and the week coming have been and will be pretty busy for me.
I am working on a couple of projects outside of the blog,
 but I have to say that I am  really missing my re-styles and DIY that  I do. 
 I hope to squeeze in a few this week  no matter what. 
For now Instagram has been keeping me connected to everyone. 
 A week in pictures. 
Hopefully Sailor Sam will be on later with his fun week.  
Some other fantastic news is Audrey, the Lego he really likes,
 is coming for a visit next week so we are extremely excited about that.



Have a beautiful Sunday!
Lots of <3,

Belt Bracelet,DIY

 The funny story is, I was with my Mom, Grandmother and good friend Elaine having coffee. Walking up to the table, we were all saying our hello's and something felt very strange around my waist. I looked down and my belt had just said it's final  goodbye as a belt,~ broken~ right off the belt buckle.  Everyone looked at me, laughed and shouted out "RE-STYLE!!"
 I still smile every time I think of it. 
Of course this belt has lots of life left. 
Let's breathe new life into this poor, broken belt  and turn it into a bracelet.

Things you need.

I trimmed off the broken leather

Measure your wrist

 cut the leather in a half circle.

with the leather hole punch,
Punch a hole at the end.

I used a large rhinestone stud,
  I put that through the hole and placed the back on it.

place the bracelet ~rhinestone down~ on a wood cutting board or a piece of wood, 
lightly hammer the metal back to fuse it with the rhinestone.
The rhinestone keeps the leather from sliding, once you put it on, like a clasp.

All finished, super easy
and you re- purposed.

Have a great Monday.
Lots of <3,
