Dip Dyed Linen Shirt

I have been the proud creator of about 30 million craft fails in my life. Some were horrible ideas from the start that didn’t make it more than one step out of the starting block. These usually involve pompoms and hot glue guns. Some projects fell apart halfway through. I currently have a weird pile […]

Milk Moon Kids Growth Chart Giveaway

Did you know that today is National Reach As High As You Can Day? I would bet $10,000 you did not know that tidbit because no one actually keeps track of all the unofficial national holidays out there in the world. Except National Doughnut Day. That is June 5. Write it down. Never forget it. […]

Trio of Beaded Bracelets

At my last trek to my new favorite bead store I found these tribal-like beads that I fell in love with. I bought them without a real plan in mind, but I knew that I wanted to wear them on my wrist and that I wanted a lot of them. After a few failed project […]

Felt Easter Egg

This felt Easter egg isn’t really a DIY tutorial as much as it is a reminder to use up your crafting supplies! We are having a casual Easter brunch with friends this Sunday and I realized I have zero Easter decor. Like zero zero. I fed all the decorated Easter eggs to Sis this week […]

Connect the Dot Easter Eggs

Easter is a fairly fleeting celebration in our house. We prefer to celebrate the equinox and the start of spring and the rebirth of the Earth more than we get into magical bunnies that creep into you house and leave you candy. BTW – Why does every holiday involve some form of breaking and entering? […]

Druzy Chain Bracelet

A couple of weeks ago I headed to┬áthe nearby jewelry store to grab some jump rings. This store doesn’t have a great selection and their prices are too high, but it is close to our house and I was buying such a basic item that the overcharge amount was cheaper than the cost of gas […]

Sidewalk Chalk Easter Eggs

Easter is almost here so it is time to start sorting out what exactly Bubba and Sis are going to get in their baskets this year. I try to minimize the candy and crap that comes into our home this time of year so their baskets usually consist of one book, two activity type games, […]

River Rock Peyote Stitch Bracelet

About a year ago I made a couple of black and copper peyote stitch rings. Remember these? I totally enjoyed not only the finished product, but also the whole process of working with the peyote stitch. I’m sure that is because my total Type A personality geeks out when a jar of loose, messy beads […]

St. Patrick’s Day Sweatshirt

Remember that $4 IKEA blanket I mentioned when I made the St. Patrick’s Day banner? It’s back for another craft today! I told you, I can’t turn down a giant piece of fabric for $4 and have been super into trying to use it all up before St. Patrick’s Day. My kids have no green […]

Shabby Chic Bookend Upgrade

Yesterday I walked into Starbucks with my boobs hanging out. I was not nursing a baby. I was not wearing one of those classy (or should I say “klassy”?) t-shirts with a female body in a bikini painted on the front that are only sold at the finest beach town gas stations. I was not […]
