It was a hot one here in So. Cal and in between cooling down in the pool, I was able to be a bit creative.
First off – even though it was super hot here – I have been thinking of Christmas. I typically start my crafting in July for the Christmas gifts I intend to give out in December. I started a batch of homemade vanilla extract. The idea and recipe came from Frugal By Choice, Cheap By Necessity and if you have not yet checked out her blog – you should!
Here is what my batch looks like —
The recipe and instructions can be found here.
My next project on the agenda was the Magazine Clutch. I first read about this DIY on the blog – Stars for Streetlights. She is so creative and I have made many of her projects. I have been unable to find a clutch that would work for this project and then WOW she posts that her tutorial is being offered as a DIY kit through Darby Smart. I ordered my kit right away and waited in anticipation for it to arrive.
Here is a photo of the box – it came with everything you need to make the project.
I chose the cover of the magazine (which was also included in the kit) for my clutch and cut it to size.
Hope you had a happy, productive Sunday!
