• How to Make a Head Statue/Bust Tutorial

    February 21, 2013

    Sometimes I get some strange ideas in my head. For instance, I desperately wanted a head statue. I looked in stores and found nada. When I tried to search online I only found images of ancient statues, not of anything to purchase. I began to realize that even if I did, shipping was going to…

    Doing dishes is not in my job description. I will, on occasion start the dishwasher but that is where my participation ends. Since I dirty the dishes by cooking, what I can only assume everyone else believes to be amazing  homecooked meals, I get to sit out on the pot scrubbing. I am also the…

    Today’s post isn’t all lovey dovey in a traditional romantic sense. Afterall, what can be less romantic than a phone ? Perhaps the cover could be. But the thing is, and I don’t think that I’m alone in this, I LOVE my phone. That’s right… with capital letters. After all, there is so, so much…

  • Dyeing Flowers with Food Coloring Tutorial

    Today we’re going to use a craft store staple to knock out some cheap and impressive faux hammered metal letters! Right now I’m knees deep in redoing my main bathroom. It is the only bathroom with a shower or tub so, as far as I’m concerned it is the only bathroom that counts (since it…

  • Chains & Pearls Bracelet DIY

    January 30, 2013

    I really, really like going to the hardware store. My favorite section is definitely the paint section. I tend to consider the style of my home as “minimalist but comfy contemporary”. Which basically means that I don’t have a ton of decor out on shelves and hanging on the walls. I’ve said it once before and…

  • Cute, Homemade Padded Envelopes Tutorial

    January 25, 2013

    Some days you just aren’t going to win. I very recently had a day such as that. It began with fighting (and perhaps a little bit of crying) on the phone with my insurance company. Now I know that I am not special on that account. We’ve all done it because insurance companies can be…
