• Catty Art – Feline Silhouette Paintings Tutorial

    January 14, 2013

    For a while when people asked how many cats I had I would respond “too” knowing full well that they thought I meant “two”. It isn’t that I’m keen on fibbing it was simply because I was so embarrassed that I have 4 cats. Trust me, when you say four you see the “Oh, you’re…

  • I Love these Sneakers DIY

    January 8, 2013

    I feel like it can’t possibly be time to start preparing for Valentine’s Day. I mean, Christmas is barely even over, isn’t it? Despite the fact that I’m a bit pissy about how quickly time is moving on me, I still love, love, love Valentine’s Day. It’s not about the actual holiday… Not feeling sorry…

  • How to Half Double Crochet

    Not going to lie. When I first saw the need for a half double crochet stitch on a pattern I decided to just use a double crochet. It didn’t exactly work out. Good news, this is an easy stitch and if you alraady know how to double crochet, it’s in the bag. For those of…

Give somebody a handmade afghan…

    December 21, 2012

    I love transferring images onto just about anything. Seriously, anything. It’s kind of like my new obsession with liquid gilding. So, Christmas present tags with faces instead of names seemed just the ticket. Good news is I’m the only one in the whole family crazy enough to DIY everything. So guess what, I don’t even…

  • Put a Bird on It! My Finished Tree for 2012

    December 20, 2012

    Not gonna lie… the first time I saw Portlandia I did not care for it. Probably had to do with the fact that I was hacked off in a super major way and in a really bad mood. I think my subconcious wanted to dislike the show simply because the person I was mad at…

  • German Glass Glitter Christmas Ornaments

    December 15, 2012

    When I was a kid, our ornaments included these little, fake, red apples. I really, really liked them. They were nothing fancy. Just fake apples on slight gold string… but for some reason every Christmas I find  myself thinking about them. As an adult, I’m pretty surprised that I never had apple ornaments of my…
