When I found out I was picked to attend the STS134 #NASATweetUp I wanted to have something fun and unique to commemorate the event. I instantly went to one of my favorite sites, Etsy because they always have different items that you can't find just anywhere! I did various searches for NASA, space, shuttle, etc found some awesome things like this gorgeous lanyard byArtisticTouches in IL. I am in love with it, but don't think that it will work for the TweetUp with the lanyard we'll already get, having a backpack on, a camera on, and all the other stuff. However, since I am still in love with it, so I haven't ruled out getting it just because it's beautiful!
Doing some more searches I was able to find the shuttle and astronaut beads from TheCraftyBead. Using the lanyard by ArtisiticTouches as an inspiration, I started getting to work on a necklace with a toned down design. I love the necklace and earrings I came up with and I am so happy to finally have a use for the irridescent star beads I have had in my stash for forever!
Ugh, I totally have to get rid of the spots on my lens before Thursday too! I can't have those annoying 3 dots in my pictures for the #NASATweetUp!
I know I'm not the only one getting a commorative fashion accessory for the #NASATweetUp, Jennifer Huberis too! Her sister made her a super creative feather hair clip that I love! Go check it out, I'll wait here..... See, I told you it was great :) The countdown is on, and it's less than a week until Jennifer and I will be rocking our #NASATweetUp inspired accessories!
