One of a kind iPhone case

My iPhone case, originally uploaded by kellyinbernal.

OMG! OMG! OMG! I am soooo delighted with my new iPhone case.

Sorry, this post is not about repurposing, it’s all about new product love.

I read about this site, getuncommon.com, where artists load their artwork and you can select a piece that you like and turn it into your own custom iPhone case. You even get to center and crop the photo on the case just how you like it. Completely out of character for me I bought one right away. Usually I shop around, look for the best deal, etc, etc. This time I couldn’t resist. And it’s worked out perfectly for me. I’m in love. I love the artwork I chose. It’s an illustration by the incredibly talented Christopher Lee. The case is beautiful. It’s nice quality, feels good in my hand, all the buttons function just right and best of all it’s mine, all mine. I chose it. I customized it. I love it!!!!

Crafty sweater wreath

Blog Projects 012, originally uploaded by kellyinbernal.

I saw a similar item in the Viva Terra catalog and had to try to make it myself. I love how it turned out. It’s actually just old sweaters of mine cut into squares and threaded onto a wire hanger fashioned into a hoop.

First I picked my colors. Then I cut the sweaters into roughly 4×4 squares. I realized that I like how it turned out better when the squares are not exactly the same size. I also rolled a few of the squares here and there and threaded them onto the wire hanger instead of threading through the center of the square. This gave it more texture and interest.

I love how a wreath is so welcoming on the front door. Since the colors are red, gray, and blue it’s not too Christmas-y. I haven’t wanted to take it down since I made it.
