Sooooo Creative!”

This wristlet is sooo creative and wonderfully made. You can tell the talent that went into the making of it by looking closely at the stitching and intricacy of the details. Loved it enough to give it to my daughter as a gift!

Playtime Garbage”

This is the second belt I purchased and I love both of them This s a great idea to reuse bottle tops. These belts are the perfect accessory to accent a dress, top etc. It is also a conversation starter as I have received many complements on them. A great way to add fun into your wardrobe.
