leaf bracelet

CRAFT magazine posted a link on facebook to maya*made's how-to for a cute leather leaf cuff and I just had to make one for myself.
I didn't have green leather, but I had a beige colored scrap that was sorta ugly on the finished side but super soft and shiny on the other. I've been wanting to use it for something for a while, but I just couldn't get over the color :P I finally decided to try staining it with some green food coloring... and it worked! it's exactly the green I wanted :)
I sewed the leaves together on my sewing machine since the leather wasn't too heavy.
I think next time I'll put a faux button on and use a snap so I don't wear the button hole out.

baby slippers?

I love these :D maybe next time I'm at the thrift store I'll see what I can find in the area of a size 10 for my odd husband who would SO wear these ;)
heck, I'd even wear 'em!

Roxie HATES flying sharks

she was throwing a fit in the backyard yesterday and when I looked out I thought it was weird that she wasn't running back and forth along the fence like she usually does when the people walk along the other side. she was in the middle of the yard looking off somewhere else.

then I spotted the kite.

it took flight a little closer today while I was cleaning mud off her paws - it was all I could do to hold her back.
