Is it just me or does it seem like biking is becoming all the rage lately? So many people in my real life and on the internet are dusting off their helmets and jumping on a bike to enjoy a bit of a nature-inspired adrenaline rush. I’ve always been more of a runner but I’ve got to tell you, the passion that most bike enthusiast share is infectious!
Hmm, maybe Jim and I should buy each other bikes for our anniversary in a couple months? The traditional gift for the 13th anniversary is lace or textile furs but I think a bike sounds much more exciting.
I’m currently drooling on my computer over the bikes at Adeline Adeline, Linus Bikes, and Public Bikes. C’mon, I’m a craft blogger…you didn’t think I’d choose a bike that was anything other than absolutely adorable, right?! (Just for the record, I’m not being paid for those endorsements. I just happen to be crazy in love with their bikes!)
So, for all those bike lovers out there, hope you enjoy these three free printables and maybe someday we’ll see you on the bike path! (click on image to download)

Have you seen the fun new line of quick and easy interchangeable accessories, Styled By Tori Spelling? Each collection has a huge variety of necklaces, earrings and bracelets that can be mix and matched to what ever your little heart desires! Keep reading to see how I used some of the Styled By Tori Spelling pieces to make two unique, vintage inspired pieces.
Honestly, I absolutely love the big, ornate necklaces with their shiny pendants (check out some other examples on my previous post) but I’ve got a curious one year old who still nurses quite frequently and there’s no way I could get him to stop fidgeting with and eventually ruining anything hanging two inches away from my breast. Kind of a bummer but like many of you, that’s my life.
So, I decided to figure out a way to use pieces of the Styled by Tori Spelling line in a way that doesn’t distract my baby boy so much that he pops off in the middle of a crowded restaurant, exposing me to the world. (Although, really? At this point, after nursing two kids for the last three years, practically everyone has seen a bit of this action.)
With just a few extra jewelry findings I got at my local craft store, I now have a super cute hanging medallion and a vintage chic cardigan chain. The best part? It only takes seconds to make and change if you decide to switch out your outfit last minute!
If you’re making a cardigan chain, you’ll need two metallic closures, a bracelet and one pendant. (As always, use care when working with small magnetic pieces around children. Can’t wait to wear mine on our next date night!) The magnetic pieces are strong enough to hold the chain and pendant in place but won’t harm your nice cardigan.
For the hanging medallion, you’ll need a jewelry kilt pin, a large pendant and a bracelet. Simply connect the pieces to the loops and you’re done. With four different jewelry lines (I used pieces from the Glitz and Boho collections) the possibilities are endless! You can check out all of the collections at Jo-Ann and many of the pieces at Michaels.
And that is really just the tip of the iceberg on what you can do with these pieces! I’d love to see any different or unusual ideas you come up with as well. Don’t forget to come back next week for the Styled By Tori Spelling Giveaway where you can win almost the entire Glitz line.
