Last month, May 25th to be more exact, was MC second birthday! Two years already! This blog means a lot to me, and I am so happy you are all enjoying it with me. What started as a creative outlet as I was transitioning to become a Stay at Home Mother, is now a wonderful medium to share creativity, inspire others and meet other creative minds all over the world. 

To celebrate our 2nd birthday, I am sharing a mini tutorial to make your own statement sunglasses. Have you seen them? They were on all the Spring runways, and they have become a must for Spring/Summer. I went to Bottle Rock music festival last month and saw so many of them! I love 'em. They are fun to wear, make people smile at you, AND turn you trendy. You can't go wrong with any of that.

To make your own you will need a pair of sunglasses, glue and embellishments like beads, pearls and/or resin flowers. Thick or cat eye frames will work best (I got mine at Target), and I used resin flowers in different colors that I got a while back at The Plaid Barn. Glue them to the frames in a pattern you like at the corners.
