Button Earrings.

These are "design your own button" earrings. At any craft store or even Wal-Mart they have button makers that you can buy that come with sets of buttons and backings. What you do is cover the button with your choice of fabric and add the backing once the fabric is in place. Then you have your own custom, decorative button.

These are just examples of some earrings we've made.

[WHAT YOU NEED: felt for the backing, feathers, synthetic flowers, decorative buttons, glue gun, headbands]

Christian Siriano for Payless.

My FAVORITE designer from Project Runway (EVER) came out with a line of shoes for Payless for early Spring. I got the Downtown Zip Sandal in black. As Christian Siriano would say, "they're FIERCE!" Not available at all Payless stores but you can find which stores carry them online.

jersey necklaces.

About a month ago my sister and I started making these jersey/knit necklaces for people. We got the idea online because we wanted to buy them but they were pretty pricey! So for a frugal way to get them, we made our own.

This particular one has knitted strands that i hand knitted myself (cast on 4 and st st until long enough)

First necklace! What do u guys think? Knitted some strands to give it texture.
