DIY Weekend

Anyone have any plans for the weekends? I’m feeling a DIY weekend coming up! I’m not sure what I want to do yet, but check out some of these ideas…

1. Decorate some of my charger cords

DIY Washi Tape cord I don’t currently have any washi tape, so I’m not sure if I’m going to try another method. However, it might just be the perfect time to get my hands on some of this pretty tape all over the internet.

2. Pinata Cake

3. Sewing Project

Leather clutchSo, I did just get a new sewing machine. I Bernina to be exact. Due to that little fact I have a strong feeling this project might get moved to the top of my priority this weekend. If it works out, I’ll be sure to share!

I hope everyone has a great and productive weekend!


Valentine’s Day

So, I love celebrating Valentine’s Day because there are lots of hearts, pink & red, and tons of super cute DIY ideas!

So, I love DIY projects, which you have probably figured out by now! Well here is a fun and easy one that can be customized to work with any decor. If I decide to tackle this project (and hopefully I will), I will be sure to post pics.

Other than looking at all sorts of DIY self projects on blogs and pinterest, I’ve been crocheting myself out of house and home. I recently purchase a couple of baby patterns from another store on Etsy, and I can’t stop thinking about how many different colors I can make each of them in. I’m definitely won over by the cuteness factor of baby stuff, but I also love how quickly these projects go. If you would to see some of my recent projects, please check out my store.

The Socks That Took Forever

I finally finished these socks up this past weekend, took pictures, and mailed them to the the recipient! It feels so good to have this project behind me, especially since I was determined not to start another knitting project until these socks were complete.

Since I’ve finished I’ve knitted a baby hat, 1/2 of a mitten, and several bracelets that I plan to add to my store soon. Right now I’m just waiting on buttons to finish them off.

DIY Bracelet

This looks like such an easy DIY project!

I would love to make myself a bracelet with these and similar geometric patterns and possibly incorporate it into one of my cup design… I think I might could use scraps from a worn out leather purse to do this. If it works out, I’ll make sure to post pics!

Please follow the link for instructions on how to complete the project.
