KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! If you've had a hectic week like my husband and I have (or if you're dealing with the recent snowstorm) grab a cup of coffee, get comfy, and enjoy some major retail therapy. This week's Friday Finds is just the thing for some serious online shopping. I was honestly running late with this post, because I got distracted browsing through all of the products available in each shop. There are so many great finds and a sweet, personal touch to each brand. Enjoy! :) Pictured above: Black Polka Dot Print Crossbody Bag by Sudden Inspiration


The first featured store is Sudden Inspiration, a shop that sells the cutest hand-crafted bags. You can find everything from cosmetics bags and wristlets to roomy crossbody bags. The designs pair faux leather with beautiful prints and colors. As I clicked around and noticed all of the bright florals, modern neutrals, and boho-chic tribal prints; I found myself wondering where the vision behind this brand comes from. Owner Melis…

DIY Shabby Chic Ornament

My daughters' room is already decorated in pink and green shabby chic, so I kept that theme going with their Christmas decor. At the National Apple Harvest Festival in PA, I bought the cutest bell ornament. It was a simple bell with a gingham bow glued to the top. I immediately knew I wanted to make more in pink and white for my girls' tree. It's a very simple DIY ornament project that beginner crafters can easily make. You can make it even easier by not painting the bells.



Materials:

-a pack of round Christmas bells

-gingham ribbon

-ornament hooks, twine or string

-hot glue or fast-drying craft glue

-craft paint or spray paint


Instructions:

1. Place a hook or tie string or twine in the top.

2. Paint with craft glue or spray paint and let dry. (I like to let it dry on bubble wrap.)


3. Cut your ribbon into at least an eight inch strip so you can tie it into a small bow and have plenty left-over to trim.

4. Make the pretty inverted V-shape at the end of the bow by folding the end in half then cutting diagonally at a 45 degree angle.



5. Glue it onto the top of the ornament with hot glue of craft glue and let dry.


Viola! Now you just need to find a cute little elf to hang it on the tree:
