What I've been working on in the Beach House Bliss Studio

Hello and happy 4th of July weekend. It's a busy weekend for everyone. We are headed up to our parents friends house up on the lake for some 4th of July festivities so I just wanted to pop in real quick and tell you what I have been working on for my etsy shop. I have been perfecting these belt buckles and I am almost there. I am excited to sell these in my shop. Like anything you create it's a process and fine tuning, plus I have been wearing this buckle to see how it holds up and so far so good! I have a ton of ideas for my buckles and can't wait to get to them. So what do you think so far? I am open to any creative ideas or tips... so anyway just wanted to give you a peek at what I have been working on in the Beach House Bliss Studio! Stay tuned I will let you know when I get ready to put them in my shop :-)
So I have been in desperate need of something to hang my necklaces on so I just made this simple little picture fame necklace holder. Just take some burlap a simple white frame and staple the burlap tight onto the cardboard backer that comes with the frame . Get yourself some cute little sewing pins( I found these cute little butterflies at Meijer) and hang your necklaces that's it simple and sweet!

Awhile back I did a makeover on my bedroom and the style is what I like to call Shabby Chic Boutique. I got the cutest little shabby chic chandelier to pull it all together. I needed a few more little simple accessories so I made this sweet little frame. I used a 5x7 frame, painted it black and then simply scuffed it up. For the card I used a 5x7 canvas photo card and just stamped my little saying with stampers you can get at any craft store. A simple little frame which I think turned out adorable. So there you have it my latest comings and goings. I'm off to the lake for some drinking vino on the boat time!
Happy 4th of July weekend. Hope you get to get and enjoy this beautiful day. Until next time...
much love xoxo
