July: month of accessoires and DIY

Who can have enough of them?????
This month I bought far to much....

I finally got my 'long-wanted' bag!
First I got it and I was soo happy! But inside there was a magnet protection so I called the webshop.
They said I could send it back for free, but the people at the post office said I must pay.
So after 3 weeks of calling to the webshop and cycling to and from the post office the bag was finally really mine!

The earrings I got from Jutka and Riska (€4) (see  Haarlem, vintage shop city! ), the necklace from Sacha (€2) and the earbuttons from H&M (€3).

(bracelet from Wibra (€2) and ring from H&M) 

Love my leopard glasses:):)

Yesterday I was in a very creative mood.
The're a lot of accessoires I really want but just can't find in a store.
So I decided to make them myself:)
And I must say it worked well:)

It's so easy to make lovely things yourelf IF you have the right materials.
DIY is sooo much more fun!

The necklace is made of Fimo clay, like the crosses, the clock and the camée.
Fimo is very easy to use. You only must watch out for mixing the two or three colours together while you're shaping it. After shaping you put it in an oven for a half an hour and VOILA!
I'm especially proud on my camée. It took me 2 and a half hour to make it....

The bracelet is made of rope and nuts.
You just braid the nuts into the rope.
It's so simple and the result is amazing!

The rings could be easily made if you have these 'plated rings' and super glue.
You can buy these rings in a hobbyshop or on

Now I'm working on cute shoulder pads with fringe, a chain body and a XL skirt in see-through black fabric. I can't wait to show you the results:) 

I hope I've inspired you all!!!
Have fun with your own DIY projects!
