Vintage-Inspired Military First Aid Kit

Ok- so, in the interest of full disclosure, I fully intended this project to be my Product Test Drive post for July. BUT…things didn’t exactly go as planned. So, I’m putting that product “on ice”…which has a double meaning. Why? Because my plans for this little medicine cabinet were to transform it into a vintage-inspired military first aid kit. (Get it…putting it on ice…first aid…ok, dumb joke!)Read more ›

Repurposed Leather Belt Liquor Decanter Tags

I am SO into leather right now…and yes, I know how that sounds! But I’m talking about leathercrafting- specifically with old leather belts.

And full disclosure- I’ve amassed quite the belt collection for my crafting pleasure. I’ve made fun cuffs that I sell in my Etsy shop…and other crafts that are posts-yet-to-be…but today, it’s all about the booze. And by booze, I mean leather liquor tags for decanters!Read more ›
