There are very few things that aren’t improved by glitter, beading, rhinestones, and other shiny things. Unicorns know this. Taylor Swift knows this. Strippers know this. Really, the rest of us just need to get on the bus (dibs on... Continue reading

Ok, here's the deal: I really like to look put together. I like to look like I'm succeeding at being an adult, can be trusted with responsibility, and wouldn't wreck your house if I came over for dinner. On a... Continue reading

As I mentioned yesterday, this honeycomb business was already making me think of other shapes I could try. Of course with Valentine's Day right around the corner, how could my next attempt not be a heart? The tutorial is the... Continue reading

This! Why did I not think of this before? Why have I not made this in every conceivable size and color well before now? All the adorableness of honeycomb without the easily-damaged quality of tissue paper! Ok, I hear you.... Continue reading

You know, I'm a girl that can't resist a challenge. I like the structure it offers and the feeling of doing something great within the defined parameters. Just Stash January was fun and eye-opening, so of course I had to... Continue reading

Today marks the end of January and of course marks the end of the Just Stash January Challenge. I would say this was a very successful venture! This awesome collage shows all the things I made (some links go to... Continue reading

There are times you see something and a moment of inspiration hits you and you wonder how you managed to not think of that before. How was that not part of the original plan? This is just such a moment.... Continue reading

Thanks Betsy! They were so fun to make! I could teach you how to knit. Just saying....

I've always had a love/hate relationship with Valentine's Day, as I suspect most people have. When I was a kid, it was decorating paper bags and having a party at school and sweets galore. It was getting a card from... Continue reading

I typed that title knowing it's a dirty lie. I know a few people who do not like hugs on an average day. But you know what? We all appreciate being thought of, especially if that thought includes treats of... Continue reading

Is that a thing? Maybe it is now! The long and short of it is I'm tinkering with something Valentine's Day-related but it's not ready to go yet. But it did remind me of the last minute coworker valentines I... Continue reading

If you are visiting for the first time today, please don't just think I've lost my mind by posting about Christmas so soon. Read this first, then you can think I've lost my mind! Anyway.... I figured the first project... Continue reading

Really. That's all I said. But, as those of you who have been here know, that's all it takes. If you're new around here. please let me explain: I get an idea and immediately I pack my bags, grab my... Continue reading

I don't think I need to sit around and lie about this: I'm a knitter, therefore I have a yarn stash. I've talked about this before. I'm not ashamed. What could be a source of shame (for those who aren't... Continue reading

Two years ago, having been inspired by Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol and a reluctance to deal with the stress and disorganization I'd dealt with in previous years, I issued myself a challenge. To refresh your memory, you can read... Continue reading

First things first: if you didn't read this post's title in your best Joan Crawford Mommie Dearest voice, I'm really going to need you to take a moment and do that. If you have no idea what I'm talking about,... Continue reading

When I posted about this watercolor paper yesterday, I didn't mention the accidental negative side effect: more scraps. When I trimmed down the tiles, I only made the two cards you saw. I wasn't really "feeling" anything else. Of course... Continue reading

Thanks Betsy! I hope you love them as much as I do if you make a batch!

Watercolor is one thing I never particularly exceled at. To be fair, I was probably at the same level as most of the other students in my elementary art classes, but that's exactly where I left it behind. I continued... Continue reading

As I've mentioned before, my blogging history has been, well, let's be kind and just say less than stellar. And I have to say, I started this week with trepidations. This was going to be my first really jam packed... Continue reading

I can't help it: sometimes I really get into an idea and can't help noodling with it some more. Such is the case with the leather keychains. The brown one is not particularly difficult to make. First cut a thin... Continue reading

I've noticed a trend lately for marbleized everything. Let me say wholeheartedly that this is a trend I can support, unlike posting vague, passive-aggressive status updates on Facebook (you know who you are). Of course I wanted to get right... Continue reading

Picture it: Arizona, 2009. The Concessions Manager has just brought in a big container of iced tea and he is offering everyone a chance to taste test it. As a good southern girl, I grab a cup, pour a big... Continue reading

Look at those pancakes! There's no other way I can think of them than as Pancake Perfection! There's a lot to be said for pancake mixes. They've come a long way in flavor and flavor choices, but it's hard to... Continue reading

When I posted about these cards yesterday, I made the rather innocuous statement that two of them reminded me of the copper ceiling tiles I love so much. The magpie in my head immediately decided that the best thing in... Continue reading
