Photo Challenge: Friend

Today I’m sharing my photo response to last week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post and it is timely because the challenge was “Friend” and yesterday was National Best Friend Day! I’m not posting a picture of a friend because I think it’d be a little weird to just post a photo of the face…

Spring Craft: Faux Floral Globe

If you’ve been following me for a while you may remember I did a post last year around this time about DIY Air Plant Terrariums. I had gotten two air plant terrarium kits which comes with the globes, plants, and the other things you need inside such as sand or moss and you put it…

Flash Tattoo Easter Eggs

Easter is just 2 days away and for those of you who celebrate you may be in the midst of dying your easter eggs right about now. This year I didn’t buy any kits or anything. In fact, I wasn’t even going to do decorate any Easter eggs. That is until I was scrolling through…

DIY: Winter Trees in Mason Jars

It was a long and busy week – thankfully it’s the weekend! Today I’m sharing a DIY winter craft that I did a few weeks ago. I was perusing Pinterest for some winter craft ideas and saw a lot of mason jar ideas. I saw some with seasonal trees inside the jars and there were…

Christmas Wrapping: DIY Gift Tags & Bows

How was everyone’s weekend? Aside from a trip to the movies Saturday morning to see Rogue One (which I will write about in an upcoming review post!) I rested up at home since I caught a cold at the end of last week. I’m feeling much better than I was Friday/Saturday. I’m so relieved because…

Mannequin Christmas Trees

I’m not sure how long Mannequin Christmas Trees have been a thing but I first noticed them last year. I saw pictures of them online last year and thought they looked so cool and beautiful. Then, I found out that as part of the White House Christmas decorations they had a room full of Mannequin Christmas…

Fall Wreath DIY

I’m back with a new craft post! If you know me, you know I like to attempt to craft but I’m not amazing at it. That doesn’t stop me though and I think I’ve gotten better and better. If you’ve been following me for a while you may remember last fall when I wrote about my…

Decorating a Mug

I’m back with another YouTube video today! Follow along as I decorate a mug for a little easy arts & crafts project. I saw this idea on Pinterest a few years ago and pinned it as something to eventually do, but of course never did it. Until now that is. I followed the directions found…

Glassblowing an Ornament

Two weeks ago I went back to Asbury Park – you may remember I spent an afternoon there in the spring and posted about it as well as made a video. This time around I didn’t just go to walk around and eat lunch, although I did get lunch. This time I went with the…

How To: Turn a Shirt into a Skirt + Video

Last summer, I saw a few things on Pinterest and on the Internet in general of girls turning mens’ button-down shirts into skirts all without any cutting or sewing. Recently, my brother was getting rid of over a dozen shirts and I swiped a few before he donated them all so that I could try…

DIY Air Plant Terrariums

Mother’s Day was a few weeks ago here in the US and prior to it I was trying to figure out a gift for my mom. She’s so hard to shop for because she’s one of those people who never seem to want nor need anything. I decided to go with a different kind of…

DIY Yarn Bow Valentine’s Day Card

Since I made my own Christmas cards back in December I wanted to make my own Valentine’s Day cards. I looked up a few different ideas and I had some ideas of my own, but those all went to the wayside once I actually began making the cards. What I ended up doing is a…
