W.I.P diy shoes!

Oh my goodness! Time is sneaking past me so incredibly fast, I find myself struggling to manage time, when I thought this would be the easy part of summer! Time management is always kind of hard for me, I get off track so easily. I blame it on the ADD. hahaha :] 

As far as this week's W.I.P. there is seriously too many to count! With the Relay For Life sneaking up so fast, I fear I just wont have enough to finish everything. It doesn't help that I still do not have all the materials I need for my projects either! Just a long list of to-dos. Something I did find time to make today was some simply adorable DIY shoes. I bought a couple pairs of plain white lace up shoes at Walmart, probably almost a year ago. They were only 5$ and i just KNEW I would be inspired someday and would need them. Since then I've been inspired several times, but I always felt anxious about actually using the shoes, I didn't want to mess them up. But after having a terrible day today, I went into my bedroom to put away my guitar and saw those shoes, and some markers I bought awhile back too and I knew it was time to doodle, even if it was something simple just to get the first attempt out of my system. These are what I came up with,  just a simple rainbow color pattern done in hearts! I know its super simple, which is why I think it's a great DIY! Any one can do it, which is what makes it great! they came out adorable, and I can't wait to wear them!

W.I.P. Wednesday - jellyfish bag & crochet rope

This week was busy already! I usually have some time off between work and school, but this year they called me in already the first Monday I was home. So I am back to work full time again already. So this week was a bit uneventful. But first, I'll fill you in on the little bit of work I took care of last week. During the hustle and bustle of finals week I managed to find time to design my chelseaMADE business cards, and with the help of my little sister we edited images that we can use as "logos" for each one of the crafts sold at PeaceCraftLove.

This week's W.I.P was a continuation of the week's previous, and I manage to finish my jellyfish bag. Which I am so thrilled about! :] It just has so much cuteness and charm that I can't help but fall in love with it myself! i also had talked about a multi-item I had hoped to have done before the last photo shoot, and this last week I actually did it. I hadn't had a chance to before the photoshoot, but I think I found the perfect length for it this week. It can be worn as a belt several different ways, a headband, and a necklace a couple different ways. I just LOVE the versatility of this item!

I apologize for the poor quality photos, I don't have a fancy camera so all my pictures that are done with out my babysitter's nice camera are either cell phone, or ipod pictures. Sorry!
