I found this DIY craft on another blog and thought it was the perfect holiday craft for the weekend! I already had the materials so I could get started right away without a side trip to Michaels (love that). So here goes this easy peasy craft.
Materials you need: decorative paper, scissors, glue gun and ribbon (optional)
Directions: See below for photo tutorial

And presto


Enjoy this festive and easy craft!

Tap, Tap, Tapping Jewelry

Five years ago my mother started a jewelry company, Me Too Charms, that makes hand stamped silver, copper and gold necklaces & bracelets. This past weekend I learned how to do it! Basically, it is not easy and I found myself saying “crap”, “oh Sh*t”, and “damn it” a lot!  By the end of the 2 hours I put into it, I saw improvement! Yay me!   What do you think?


NOW – Here is an example of what it really should look like. I know, I have a ways to go!


My mom  is amazing at creating one-of-a-kind pieces. The best part is she can customize the disk to whatever you want! I just had her make a necklace for my best friend, Brenna, who is running the Boston Marathon.  I had her stamp Brenna’s bib number! Brilliant, I know!
