DIY Chain Maille Bracelets

Chain-Maille-Bracelet-Tutorial50I found this pin on Pinterest (of course) ūüôā and I received so many repins and inquiries that I thought I would share on here.¬† This is¬†not my tutorial.¬†

The tutorial is¬†by¬†Irina of Irina’s Cute Box, pictured¬†below and the link to the tutorial is here.

I’m going to attempt this tutorial myself tonight (I already have all of the¬†items needed)¬†and I will post and share as well. It really is a beautiful bracelet.¬† Good luck to everyone who gives it a try and don’t forget to leave a comment or post a pic when you’re finished.

You can head over to¬†Irina’s site for more great tutorials too!

How to Make a Hanging Magnetic Makeup Holder


You know I’ve seen these on Pinterest and I pinned, of course, to make one for myself.¬† How cool is it to not have to dig through your makeup bag?¬† If you’re like me I can never find what I’m looking for, or the top/covers break off leaving¬†my makeup pretty vulnerable!

I wanted to share this post by The Flower Hazard ( by Kendra) where she gives a great tutorial on how to make one for yourself.  Check out her site for other great tips too; Kendra shares recipes, tips on parenting, couponing and much more!

Give it a try and send me a picture if you’d like.¬† I’d love to see how you did.¬† I’ll post mine soon.

Have a great day!
