The excuses keep rolling in.
Ugh, I am so sorry guys. I actually got a job today working our state fair, so I didn’t get anything done, but the good news is that I got 50 bucks and I’m working through next saturday. Hopefully I’ll have a nice wad of cash by the end of it and I’ll be able to get……… A SEWING MACHINE! Then I’ll have crafts up every weekend omg. It will be...
Who wants some crafts today? :) Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, school has been keeping me super busy. But hopefully I can have 1 or 2 tutorials up by tonight. See ya then! And thanks everyone for sticking around despite my poor blogging. Love you all ♥
1maze asked: i love all your post. thank you so much for the creative ideas
Hello, Followers :)
I started school this week, which is why there haven’t been any tutorials up. I would do some stuff tomorrow, but my nephew, mom, sister and myself are going on a weekend trip to a reptile convention at the beach. That being said, I don’t have much time between that and school supplies shopping to put up a tutorial this weekend. I will try to put something up in the coming week. Have a...
I feel the need to make a post about this right...
This is anon hate to one of my friends who is anorexic. If you have or ever plan on doing this to someone, “hating” on someone, you should think again. I hope none of my followers would ever do this, but if you have ever been a victim of anon hate, my door is free for you to talk to. It makes me sick that people are pathetic enough to target people for anything, and it is even worse...
frankblues asked: I love your blog! I wanna try some of this haha
Going to the craft store, you all know what that means ;D
I tie dyed today with a friend C:
I wish I could credit the tumblr post that i got this from, but I guess I can rest assured that all of you craft fanatics have seen it before. It got a lot more intense in color after a while, but I might tape it and spray it again if it isn’t what I’d like after its dry. I want an intense orange, I just want to keep the spottiness. Oh well, we’ll see. I’m going to...
These are some crafts i made the other night. The bracelet you can make following these steps. The earrings were made with seashells I painted with fingernail polish (we’ll see how that works out) and then I hot glued them to an old pair of studs. :)
I meant to publish the last ask, but instead i’ll just remind my followers that they can submit the crafts they have made using my tutorials here, I’d love to see how everything turned out :D
nev-erland asked: You're blog is so rad, I am absolutely in love! I'm in online school so I have a lot of free time on my hands during the day and I am stoked to try some of your tutorials out! <3

Shopping list: tie dye white fabric paint
DIY Bandana Wallet
Should I continue displaying all of the steps as I have, or would it be better if I put what it was and a picture of it then all of the directions/info under a “Read More”? Question has been resolved; it was about half-and-half so I’m just going to continue doing things as I have been. Thanks for the feedback, everyone :)
100 Ways to Transform a Tee Shirt: 13
Knotted chain bracelet You will need your chain (long enough to wrap around your wrist), a strip of tee shirt ~1’-1.5’ long and ~1” or less thick, a connector, and a hot glue gun. Start by folding the chain about in half, but leave one of the sections (rungs, rings, circles? Is there a proper name for what I’m trying to say? Lol) in the center out to use your connector...
100 Ways to Transform a Tee Shirt: 11 (Updated)
The original tutorial can be found here, but I finished it today so here’s the final product: I got this purse from the thrift store for 3 dollars and deconstructed it. I used the chain for this purse (and i still have a bunch left over for some bracelets ;3) and the leather cord for this bracelet. I still plan to use the rest of the purse, but I think I’m going to have to wait...
Splatter paint the rest. Don’t know why I never thought of that! Thanks guys C: This will be a DIY soon enough…
I have this sweater my mom gave me, and it is a beautiful teal color. The problem is that she used the sweater as a paint sweater… once. Now there are white paint smudges on the front and on one of the sleeves. Any ideas to remove or hide it? Question has been resolved.
DIY Shell Earrings
This is yet another one of those “hot-glue-this-to-this” projects, but we can’t complain: they’re practically fail proof! All you need is your selected shells, earring backs, and a hot glue gun. I used these shell beads (if you could drop by my ask and let me know their name I would be most appreciative) which I got off of some shoes a long long time ago. At first I...
Faux Studded Bracelet
Basically you can follow the Honestly WTF directions here, but I used a thicker leather band from a thrifted purse and embroidery thread of the same color, so it looks as if it has studs! Instead of using a hex nut for the connector, I just left the ball chain clasp and the other end of the ball chain exposed. This gives it more of a seamless look. It does twist, not too sure why but I like it...
I know a journal is kind of a “duh” DIY. I thought this was fun though, and I plan to keep at it. This idea came about when I realized I had a bunch of paper junk (fortune cookies, neat pictures, movie ticket stubs, old notes, doodles, photo strips, cards, other paper memorabilia) that I had no idea what to do with. So I decided to compile all of that junk into a journal. It’s...
It seems I have lost a few followers due to being AWOL for so long (don’t worry though, I honestly don’t blame them.) but today is your lucky day because I am finally back in the crafting swing. I’ll have some back-to-school DIY’s up tonight. See you all then :)
Hey Followers. I apologize for disappearing for so long, and waiting so long to post anything. I have been having some personal issues lately that are causing me to be very un-motivated. I’m not trying to make excuses, but I do hope you understand. Another issue is that our sewing machine is broken, as I may have said before, and I just seem to have run out of no-sew craft ideas. I’ll...
Hey guys, I promise I will do my best to put up a tutorial sometime tonight. I don’t think it will be a problem though :3 See you all then!
Hey Followers! I’ve been quite sick the past few days, so I am unfortunately super un-motivated to do anything at all. As soon as I am back on my feet, I will be blogging once more. :) Love you guys, thanks for understanding <3
100 Ways to Transform a Tee Shirt: 12
For this, you will need a t shirt, scissors and a hot glue gun. I used this tank, just because I love the texture. I’m pretty sure it would work for a t, so I’m including it in the 100 ways :) Cut your shirt in half, and then cut the top off, so you have 2 loops. If your shirt isnt fitted like mine, you might want to make one of your loops smaller by cutting it open, trimming some...
DIY Newspaper Box
I don’t have a how to, but i just made this cute heart box using a storebought box from like hobby lobby, the cover of a local newspaper, and some ribbon. I kept the newspaper because of the adorable owl design, and finally it came to me how to use it! I simply put the lid on the paper, traced where I wanted it, but gave it lots of room for error, pleated the edges down, trimmed them, and...

100 Ways to Transform a Tee Shirt: 11
A fringed clutch! Materials: scissors, an old unused bag (mine was a dingy makeup bag), a hot glue gun, your tee of course, and you also might want to grab a ruler. Step-By-Step: Measure the length of your purse/bag. The length of mine was 11 1/2 inches. Now, use this measurement to create strips that are 3-3 1/2 inches wide and your needed length. (My strips were 11.5 X 3.5...
Mom and I made a cat tree today :)
we used part of our old 90’s entertainment system and a scratching post we made earlier. We also recycled extra carpet from when we built our house to cover it. We used a staple gun to attach the carpet. Add a house for the top and voila: we’re going to attach some toys here and there, plus some platforms for them to climb up. but they love running around and hiding in it :3
