DIY Bow Necklace!

Duct tape jewelry? Doesn’t sound classy, right? Wrong! I whipped up a batch of duct tape bows are easy to make and with the variety of Scotch Colors and Patterns available, you’ll never run out of ideas. If you’re like me, you’ll end up making a big batch. I used them for pins, rings and my favorite – necklaces. Here’s a classy spin on duct tape!

SUPPLIES:
-Cutting Mat
-Necklace Chain
-Needlenose Pliers
-Hole Punch
-4 Jumps Rings
-Necklace Clasp

DIRECTIONS

To make a 3” bow, cut a 15” strip with craft knife. Cut two half-inch strips for the backing and the center of the bow. Then fold long strips together, and fold ends into center. Using one of the two half-inch strips, seal the back. It’ll look like a chunky bracelet. Pinch center to create the bow look, and wrap the last half-inch strip around the bow.

NECKLACE ATTACHMENTS
Punch a hole in the back top layer on each side of the bow.

Attach jump ring to each side.
Cut two 9” strips of necklace chain, and attach chain to jump rings.
Close jump rings tightly with needlenose pliers.
At a jump ring on one of end necklace chain, then add the necklace clasp on the other side using needlenose pliers.
Hope you had as much fun as I did! 🙂

NEUTROGENA’S WAVE FOR CHANGE CAMPAIGN-MY STORY

Hey guys! So the video above is inspired by Neutrogena’s Wave For Change campaign. This campaign is helping thousands of kids! For this back to school season, with each Neutrogena product that is purchased between July 1st- August 31st, they will donate to three charities from GlobalGiving.(Para Los Ninos, KIPP, Education Through Music) So, how can YOU help? It’s actually easier than you think. Click HERE or the video below and simply WATCH. With your view you are changing the future for thousands of children in the United States. With each view Neutrogena is donating $1 to these charities.  Easy, right?! Share it! Tweet it, post it on Facebook, Tumblr, Pintrest, any way you can.

  I connected with this campaign mainly because I think education is extremely important.(Although sometimes I just want to crawl into a ball and cry because of all the homework….but who doesn’t? …right? ) It’s giving me the tools to achieve my dreams and there are SO many children out there who don’t even have the opportunity to go. As I explained in my video, the arts program in school were a HUGE part of who I am today. It’s allowed me to express myself through performing on stage in musicals, singing songs in my videos, and writing music as well. I couldn’t image my life without it. I hope you guys check out this amazing campaign and watch this video. I am so honored to be a part of this campaign!

KIMBRA

Alright. So you guys all know Kimbra as “the girl in that one weird video with that weird guy with paint on their bodies and stuff singing about somebody they used to know” (as my little cousins have once stated) My mom and I found Kimbra while YouTube surfing for new music back in October 2011. This is the first video we saw. And we were hooked.
(Of course anything with bright colors, pink lipstick, and Pom Pom Fringe is sure to catch our attention….) Next we saw her collab with Gotye -not going to post the video ’cause i’m pretty sure you’ve seen it. Unless you’re from a different planet.In that case, HI! WELCOME TO MAYAINTHEMOMENT!Anyways…this girl is AMAZING. Her voice alone is crazy good.  This video will confirm.

She has such a control over her voice…and those techniques?! What also amazes me is the way she sings with passion. Which is something I strive for in my own performances.
Did I mention she was GORGEOUS? (girl crush? I think yes.)

Cray cray. I could go on… 🙂  Definitely check her out 🙂

CRAFT: Gumball Toy Headband!

  It’s summer time, neon colors are in- combine with the fact that I stopped straightening my curly hair,  I needed something to harness my hair. Hello, headband! Instead of going with the boring store bought version, I decided to make my own out of my gumball toy collection, and yarn scraps!

SUPPLIES:

 First I found a plain headband, sprayed Aleene’s Tacky Spray and wrapped it with yarn.

Next I got scraps of yarn, and wood pieces you can purchase at the craft store. Put a generous drop of glue on the wood piece, and wrap with yarn. I recommend gluing on the gumball toys to your wood piece BEFORE gluing on to headband, and let it dry. This way you can rearrange!

Lastly, glue on the wood pieces to your headband. You can use a clothes pin to hold it in place. And that’s a wrap! 🙂

Love, Maya

 Alright. I bet after listening to this you’re thinking, “Oooh. Maya’s in love again!”
Nope. Still a single lady! (woah oh oh, oh oh ohhh oh oh oh) 🙂
Someday though…when it’s meant to be! I’m just in love with the idea of love, and all it’s moments. I think it’s scary, but magical. Something worth waiting for. Anyways, I hope you enjoy this cheesy, yet tasteful Ukulele love song by yours truly 🙂
