Whimsical Eyeglass Chains and Cheetah Print Goodies

Whimsical Custom Eyeglass Chains
One of my customers is a children's book illustrator. She requested a couple of fun asymmetrical eyeglass chains.
I was up for the challenge! With her overall preference of black, these are the 2 I created. Her current favorite pair of readers are red, hence the touch of color.
I love the look of the black with lots of metal. Very cool!

Cheetah Print Goodies
My niece recently celebrated the big 8. For a few years now she has had a serious love of anything cheetah print. So off to Etsy again I went for shopping!

This fun cheetah card is from Loving Expressions.
 How fun are these ears? They are from Fashion 4 Divas.
These headbands are for adults and children but can also be worn around the wrist! They are from Polka Dot Pineapple Boutique. 
Someday I would like to be proficient in resin. Until then I will enjoy others' creations! This necklace is from Le Petit Panda.
This pencil case could be used for so many things! It is from Isabella Bowtique.
My favorite is this cheetah print sock monkey! It is super adorable!!! From Girl Ice Climber.
Thank you for stopping by. Remember to shop handmade the next time you are seeking out gifts. :)  Have a great week. ~Val
