My two daughters and I recently took a trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to spend a week with my parents.
We got to spend quality time with Mammy and Papa, enjoyed some warmth and sunshine, the beach, activities, and a little shopping. While shopping the boardwalk one day, I stumbled upon 2 stores that I just fell in love with and I wanted to share them with you.
The first store is Savannah Bee Company. Healthy beauty products, unique gifts and their flavorful, savory honey is just YUMMY! Who wouldn’t love a company that also supports the Bee Cause Project?!? As we all know, honey bees play a HUGE role in pollinating so much of foods that we eat.
Bees lives matter, it’s that simple.
So when I say their products are amazing, bee-lieve me, they are! Seriously though, I have really dry skin especially during the winter months and their Royal Jelly Body Butter is simply scrumptious!
I was sampling this lotion in the store and I literally couldn’t stop touching myself. Yes, a bit awkward but my skin, OMG it was SO SOFT!
The next store I am completely obsessed with is Earthbound Trading Company. It’s quite the experience, especially if you are a yogi like me. Loved everything and I actually had a hard time leaving the store.
I bought a pretty, flowy dress, a warm poncho, some jewelry for myself and my girls and earrings for my sons girlfriend. I absolutely loved their dreamcatchers but decided to hold off on buying one. If you’ve been following my blog you may already know that I really enjoying crafting and DIY projects and this dreamcatcher was no exception.
So preparing for this project I realized that I had almost everything I needed to create my own version of a boho chic dreamcatcher, except for the doily. I needed a large doily to fit my 18-inch embroidery hoop and much to my delight, I found the perfect one at JoAnn that fit perfectly into my hoop and my vision of neutral, warm tones.
I didn’t take pictures while making this, but there are lots of tutorials online and the possibilities are endless! Here’s my version…..
Here’s a list of what I used for materials:
- 18 inch embroidery hoop
- Large doily
- Chunky yarn
- Hot glue gun
- Embroidery needle and thread (to attach doily to hoop)
- Wooden beads
- Assorted feathers
- Scrap fabric
- String beads
The most time-consuming part was wrapping the hoop with yarn but the rest worked up pretty quickly.
So what do you think? I really love it and will certainly be making more of these in the near future.
Thanks for visiting today.
