The Origin of Buttons

Remember last week when I shared the buttons that peeps sent me? Well, here’s what I did with them. Not all of them, of course, but this is only my first button project.  I think it turned out really well and I’m quite pleased with it. I’m calling it “The Origin of Buttons” and I’m … read more

Glammed Up Holiday Houses

Inspired by this post, I made some little cardboard houses for under the tree. All the goods are  either recycled or were gifted to me (excluding a couple pieces of felt I purchased). The great holiday fabrics were sent to me from Creative Thursday and the sequins my friend Mary shared with me. Everything else … read more

DIY Paper Ornaments

Recently, the folks at French General sent me goodies to play with and I was just waiting for a rainy day and some inspiration to get started with them. That happened the other day.  As I have shared, I am on a bent to re-do my tree with all homemade decorations this year. I’m not … read more

Re-making the tree and my attitude this year

I know, hard to believe?!  Although I am a non-religious person, I culturally celebrate Christmas and it has been my favorite holiday all of my life.  The past few years though, I’ve felt more like the Grinch than Cindy Lou … read more

I’ve had a few ideas, but never the time to sit down and get my crafty on. Well, Hurricane Sandy suddenly opened up my … read more

Painting rocks and meeting with the women

Yesterday I met with a group of women for our new regular creative gossiping sessions. My  friend Kris came up with the name C3 (Cunt Craft Collective) for them. We are using the time to socialize, work on art and craft projects, talk politics and activism and to offer inspiration for each other. With a … read more

Look What I Made

I have a wall that I am trying to cover with handmade embroidery projects…I have four displayed as of now. This is my latest project. It’s not based off of a pattern, I just winged it, so to speak. Do you like it? Also, got any recommendation for future projects? Patterns or kits? I am … read more

DIY Japanese Happy Tape Chevron Necklace

I decided to make my own chevron necklace after featuring the trend a couple of weeks ago.  I was inspired by some Japanese happy tape that was laying out on my desk, so I got the idea to make a happy tape chevron necklace using some scrap cardstock and ribbon. It was wasn’t that difficult … read more
