Striped Straws and Bakers Twine

Today I went craft store shopping to find some supplies for an upcoming project. I randomly decided to stop by a little scrap booking shop that I haven’t been to in over 10 years, Pebbles In My Pocket in Orem, UT, and boy am I glad I stopped in! I felt like a kid in …

Easy Lace Skirt

Today my mom and I made this super cute and super easy skirt. There’s no pattern required for this one either. Here’s how we did it! I started out with some supplies from my mom’s sewing room: Stretchy lace, thick elastic, lining (poly Inter-lock, which my mom didn’t have so I bought it), and thread. …

Whirlwind

What a CRAZY month March ended up being! When I first pinned my simple Easter project I did NOT expect it to be as popular as it was. I expected a few hundred pins at most… I hit that mark within minutes of pinning it. A little over a month later it now has almost …

Easter Egg Tree

It was my 23rd birthday a couple of days ago. I spent the day making an Easter Egg Tree.  I remember having one in the house growing up. My mom had made a little tree for the dining table. She painted the tree white and painted flowers and polka-dots  on the eggs in pastel colors …

Easter Egg Garland

I made some Easter eggs today out of string, and turned some of them into a garland.  Here’s how I did it! Make a stiffener mixture. I used 1 cup of liquid starch mixed with a half cup of flour, and blended it in a blender. You could double or triple this recipe if you’d …

Rice Shoulder Heating Pad, with Lavender

My mom made shoulder rice warmers several years ago for the neighbors for Christmas. She put in all kinds of nice smelling herbs in them. I loved the one she made for our family, I used it all the time. But it got lost! So I finally decided to make my own. I’ve been wearing …

Pretty Posh Pet Food Plate

Wow, that title is corny. Oh well, I’m keepin’ it.   Remember my jadite collection?  oh you do? good. Well, my jadite dishes just sit on my shelf up in my room, never having the chance to be used… because who wants to climb to another story of the house for a plate when you …

New Treadle Sewing Machine

You know how, in the olden days, people used to sew on those sewing machines where you pumped a petal to get the machine going?  They’re called treadle sewing machines. Did you know they’re still around and you can buy one new!?  You can!  In fact my mom just bought one, being the sewing nut …

Feather Pen

There’s a cute little antique shop, located in an old Victorian house, where I frequently visit… mostly to look for jadite, but I still go there all the time just to look around.  They have a nice little selection of feathers, and every time I go there I almost buy some. Usually I talk myself …

Where I’ve Been

Hi everybody! I’m sorry I’ve been lame and haven’t posted anything for awhile.  Like I said before, I have a new full time job and I’m having a hard time coming up with the energy to create.  But I’ll make myself do some projects every once in awhile, and they’ll all be posted right here, …
