Upcycled Jewelry: Bobby Pin Necklaces and Earrings

Upcycled jewelry made from bobby pins! These are so fun to make. I hand paint most of the pins in fashion colors and arrange them in unique patterns.  See more photos of Abby  above on the Vintage Inspired Passionista Blog.  I love making statement necklaces and earrings but my pendants with the hammered hoops are my favorite! This one below is a gray pearl in monochrome with black, silver and gunmetal but I love to make them in bright neons  and other fun fashion colors too! You will most definitely get noticed wearing these! I love them because they are comfortable and easy to wear plus they are an inexpensive way to add some pizazz to your wardrobe!

Funny Craft Memes

Crafting is kind of addicting for me but it can also be tedious, intense, time consuming, sometimes even stressful work and I must say you’ve got to have a sense of humor about it! Here are some of my favorite craft memes. This one above is one of my favorites. I did a google image search and found this is actually  Kathy from the Crafty Chica, who has the most colorful and fun craft blog, be sure to check it out!  A few weeks ago Pearl, from The Beading Gem’s Journal did a post with links to a ton of hilarious memes from Sylvie Landowne and the Handmade Ryan Gosling Blog, be sure to follow Pearl’s blog for great inspiration and jewelry tutorials and see her post with these funny memes at The Beading Gem’s Journal   Here are a couple  of my favorites:


crafting funniescraft memesI thought I would try making a meme myself! There are several meme generators out there but I used Memedad.  Here are a few of mine, the first two are the Overly Attached Girfriend   If you haven’t seen her videos they are a riot, maybe you have to see her in action to really get this! I just had to make one using the ancient alien guy too, he is so funny to watch!
