Sick Day Essentials.

Well, I seem to be kicking of 2013 in the same fashion that I begin most years… sick! I don’t know what it is, but I think once the stress of the holiday season is finally over and I give my body a second to relax it hits me like a ton of bricks. Don’t get me wrong… Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year, but whether good or bad, stress is stress and the body does what the body wants. Luckily I have a few days to rest and recoup before I get back to the real world… here are a few of my sick day essentials

What a STUD!! D.I.Y. studded iPad case

20120710-112657.jpg

My sweet mama gifted me her iPad which she rarely never used. Seeing as how I am constantly clicking away on my computer… blogging, pinning, tweeting, you name it… I was ecstatic! The only problem was that the plain black case it sat in simply would not do! Rather than buy a new, more fashionable case, I decided it would be way more fun to jazz it up myself. Somewhat did I do you ask…? I broke out my bedazzler and got busy! I am pretty pleased with the final product… it’s cute, trendy, and most importantly made with love!
Want to make your own studded iPad case?… Or any case for that matter! Here’s what you will need…
1) a leather or vinyl case / cover
2) a sharpie or pen in a contrasting color
< i used a silver nail polish pen. It was easy to see against the black background, yet wiped off easily if I made a mistake.>
3) a bedazzler
4) studs, rhinestones, or whatever shiny things float your boat…
< i used a combination of gold and silver studs… though it’s kind of hard to tell in the photos>
… if you do not own a bedazzler (but who doesn’t) you can simply use some flat studs (the kinds without the prongs) and some G-S Hypo Cement or any strong hold craft glue available at bead stores, Michaels, etc…
Now what?
Simply mark where you would like to place your studs and stud away!!
