Sarongs are so versatile. You can use make tie them into dresses, skirts, shawls, pool wraps, or use as a beach throw. You can even use them for tablecloths, wall art, or make pillows, curtains, or crafts from the fabric!

You can find many videos on Utube about different ways to tie sarongs.

Bentley Boutique is on Facebook

by bentleyboutique ~ April 30th, 2011

I finally made a facebook page for Bentley Boutique! You are hereby officially invited to become a fan.

Please “like” the page with your personal facebook page, so it will count. Did you know that “liking” a page doesn’t count if you do it through your business page? I only found this out recently, and it makes no sense to me. So I’ve been “liking” pages with both of my accounts. That way it will count, and then I “hide” the posts on my personal page, and read them on my Bentley Boutique page. Any comments on how others handle facebook?

My New Eyeglass Holder Necklace by Beading By Stacie

by bentleyboutique ~ May 18th, 2010

Can anyone relate to always losing their glasses? I am constantly looking for mine, which I need in order to read anything… which means I need them a million times a day. And I don’t like wearing them constantly because, quite frankly, I can see better without them (far away, that is, not up close). The joys of getting old!

Finally, I found the solution. An eyeglass holder necklace. These babies are hard to find in stores, but I found a  very talented work-at-home mom who made this gorgeous necklace for me. Her name is Stacie Zaragosa, and you can find her on the web at www.beadingbystacie.com, http://beadingbystacie.artfire.com, http://etsy.com/shop/beadingbystacie, and http://stores.ebay.com/beading-by-stacie. You can even follow her on twitter.

I love this necklace for several reasons. It’s gorgeous. It is simple and functional. It goes with everything. And I don’t lose my glasses anymore!

You don’t have to have eyeglasses to enjoy Stacie’s work. She offers a very wide assortment of jewelry, earrings, charms, fan pulls, kits, and other items as well. And she even includes a free gift with each order!! So check her out… you’ll be glad you did:)

A bit about myself… I’m a former social worker.. turned drug rep.. turned mom of 14 year old twin boys. I also have an online store, Bentley Boutique. And I try to squeeze in crafting as often as possible, which is why I created my blog. If you are into digital scrapbooking, I’ve been posting a lot of templates lately.

Now I’m supposed to list my 3 favorite posts … hmmm, that’s hard, but here goes. Funny, with all my crafting posts, my favorite ones have to do with my kids and the dog!

  2. 5 Creative Things Your Kids Can Do with Your Hair Rollers
  3. Time for Tidbit’s Bath
