Resourceful Crafter and DIYer; Yes. Organized; Not So Much.
Today has been great!
Today has been a great day. Got to spend time with the hubby before work, got a lot of earrings made today, my little brother got engaged to a wonderful woman (Congrats Andrew and Ashley); and the day ended with an amazing firepit with old friends and new ones. :)
I hope everyone’s weekend is going well.
Crazyness just keeps getting crazier!
The past year has been a crazy one. It’s been filled with awesome adventures (pics to come soon) and travels. As well as meeting new people, making new friends and reconnecting with old ones.
Just as I get used to the flow of it all I add more to my plate. Isn’t that how it goes though? I love it or I wouldn’t do it. The only thing that’s not so great about it is actually having time to sit write anything here without interruptions. Looks like I’ll be utilizing the queue feature more often or doing late night/early morning posts.
Sometimes during the really crazy days the only things that keep me sane are my wonderful and supportive husband and friends and family. Without them I would be lost. I love you all!
Keep Doing What You Do!
I need to share this with my brother. Maybe then he’ll get off my back about all the DIYs I do. Lol
DIY Twenty Five Projects to Help You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse from Babble here. Big roundup of links to actually practical DIYs like how to build a compass with a few common items for kids, the everlasting Crisco candle, and paracord jewelry to name a few.
This is on my to do list for my nephew’s birthday! It may even be nice to have for this year’s camping trips.
This is really cool.
Beware the Moon’s Skull Wallpaper. Skulls aren’t just for Halloween anymore and so I loved the post on Remodelista about Beware the Moon’s Skulls Collection Wallpaper here. I went to their really odd-in-a-good-way site and picked out my favorite photo of the wallpaper at Beware of the Moon here.
Here’s where I’ll post tutorials that I’ve made and links to ones I’ve found elsewhere.
Products currently available in my Etsy shop. More to come soon!!
This takes love of your craft and patience! I love it!!!
This is my design for a Crocheted Wedding Gown. It is entirely crocheted with the Crocodile Stitch in a fine microfiber satin thread. It took me 3 weeks of insane crocheting. My wrists almost fell apart. Luckily I was able to finish it in time to model it at the Crochet Guild of America Fall Conference Fashion Show. The Calla Lilly flowers in the bouquet were crocheted by my mother. Yep, it takes a family to make a crocheted wedding.
