DIY Hair Ties

PicMonkey Collage

So I go through hair ties like nobody's business. I lose them, I get them tangled, they break... It's a  never ending battle.   I usually use cheap tangle-free elastics.  But then I came across these Emi-Jay bands last year...and I love them!  BUT they are a bit pricey...   So today when I was at the craft store I came … [Read more...]

DIY Makeup Remover

Hey! So Pinterest has made me think that I need to make everything myself. DIY Windex, DIY scarfs, DIY furniture...   But since I much prefer to spend my hard earned dollars on completely non-DIY stuff I usually ignore most anything that requires me to make stuff that I could easily buy at Target.   Until I saw a picture … [Read more...]

Candy Frankenstein

So I used to be crafty. This was before I had babies, or started a website, or ...well..turned 30...   Not sure what happened to my craftiness. But I lost it.   Here's an example.

DIY Decorative Jars

Doing crafts doesn't have to be a hard or involved process. And sometimes crafts can require you to do online shopping for supplies. That's what I love about these jars. Certainly you don't HAVE to shop online, but I take any chance I can get for an excuse to hit that "add to cart" button.   With these super simple DIY jars I … [Read more...]

DIY Hair Pins

So, ok. I used to think I was all crafty and such. I have now found, the older I get, the less crafty I become. If it can't be made with super glue and felt, I am most likely never gonna do it.   But here's the deal. Fun stuff can be made with super glue and felt. It's a fact.   Which leads me to these super easy, … [Read more...]

DIY Cute Flats

Picnik collage

I'm not going to pretend that I am all money-savery. I'm not.  Especially when it comes to shoes. BUT I do have my fair share of cheapy flats. For some reason, flats just aren't something I have ever spent big money on. I'm not above it, I covet my fair share of Tory Burch, but I just have never been able to make the … [Read more...]

Infinity Scarf and Flower Pin

A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing infinity scarves on Etsy and I found a super cute grey scarf that had a flower pin attached.   I wanted that dang scarf.  But...it cost forty bucks.  Sadly, that's more than I can justify spending on piece of fabric to wrap around my neck.   So I did some Googling.  I'm a crafty gal, but … [Read more...]

Ok, I have to tell you...I wanted to name this post, "How to tea bag a T-shirt".  BUT I was worried about what google searches I would come up under.  We try to keep the riff-raff out over here, and I thought that title might be a slight distraction to the craft at hand ;)   So, onto vintage shirt making... You will need: a white … [Read more...]
