I’ve been rather uninspired as far as DIYs are concerned lately …or maybe I’m just not in the mood to make things. Regardless, I’m not worried, creative inspiration is sometimes overflowing in some areas of my life and lacking in others. Eventually though, energy shifts and the opposite is the case. But the other day I decided I wanted a leather feather on my key chain …so I made one, well 2 actually. Here’s how…
