This post contains affiliate links. Milo’s Harry Potter birthday party was this past weekend and it was a whole lot of fun. Most of the stuff I did was inspired by all of the amazing Harry Potter parties that came before ours. You can see my inspiration board on Pinterest if you want to see a […]
Here is a second, simpler set from the turtle necklace. Nothing fancy, but I love all of these colors together.
This finger paint is so easy to make from broken crayons and coconut oil. Get the recipe and full how-to on Disney Imagicademy!
I’m excited to share this week’s tutorial by Caila of CailaMade! Caila’s work is always beautiful and this tutorial does not disappoint. I love it on so many levels. It’s a scrap-buster and makes a great project for a quick afternoon sew when you want to make something small. And it’s so giveable! I love practical, […]
I am so excited to have my first guest blogger join us today for my Handmade Halloween Costume Series. Paige blogs over at Final Clothes-Out, and today she’s sharing an amazing faux corset tutorial with us. This one of thise “that’s so simple, why didn’t I think of that?!” tutorials that can be used for […]
It’s December! Say whaaaaat? I have been going, going, going for weeks. My Etsy shop took a crazy turn when someone posted one of my INdiscreet tampon + pad cozies on Wanelo. The thing started trending like mad, and has been sitting pretty in the top 100 of their “Most Popular” products on that site. […]
Good morning! We’re halfway through the last week of SONP. Eep! My first guest his morning is Nicole from Cicely Ingleside. Have you seen all of the tulle skirts and dresses popping up lately? Nicole is here to gve us the lowdown on this trend. Here she is: Hello from the foggy and windy island […]
Ahh, the Summer of No Pants! My favorite time of year for silly poses. Milo said this one was the best. Well, actually, that’s not 100% true… He thought this one was the best. But since it didn’t show off the dress at all, I went with his second choice. Okay, back to the dress! […]
Printing with bubble wrap is such a fun activity to do, especially with kids. The results are so modern – a beautiful mix of geometric pattern and organic colors and edges. I love it! In our former home, I had bubble printed paintings made by our sons hanging up in our bedroom. For this project, […]
I am in charge of Easter dessert today, and I chose a recipe for Pineapple Carrot Cake from my brand new cookbook, Rosie’s Bakery All-Butter, Fresh Cream, Sugar-Packed, No-Holds-Barred Baking Book. I frosted it with the Cream Cheese Frosting from the same book, and seriously, I have never had a creamier, silkier, richer tasting frosting. […]
I wanted to share this fun, easy gift wrapping project I did over the weekend. I had some silver tissue paper and silver fabric ribbon. When I tied the bow, I thought it looked like a robot in a bow tie, so I took a bit of brightly colored cardstock and a black Sharpie and […]
I bought this t-shirt at a Jedidiah booth sale last summer. I would put it on, look at myself in the mirror, and then take it off and choose something else with a more flattering fit. I did this many, many times. Because I thought it would magically look better on it’s own, I suppose. […]
I made this baby chewer for my friend’s newborn baby girl. My friend is a HUGE fan of Twilight, and she literally put the first book of the saga in my hands and got me a wee bit obsessed with it, too. This is our melancholy hero, Edward Cullen. It’s difficult to see in the […]
My brother-in-law is the main cook for his household (not sure how my sister avoided the cooking gene, as it is dominant on both sides) so for his birthday last Monday I made him a manly apron. I was going to buy him one off of Etsy, but there was just a bunch of crap […]
I have been madly making yo-yo necklaces so that I can have lots of samples for my Design Camp at Alt Summit! The conference is now less than 3 weeks away and I have been scrambling to accomplish everything I want to have ready before I go. This is such an awesome opportunity for me, and I […]

Kelley returns today with a fun take on bingo. This would make an easy handmade gift for the kiddos. It would also be a great travel game to bring along on your next big road trip. Here’s Kelley: Hello to all the Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky! readers. I’ve got a little after Halloween treat for you! […]
Oh, my goodness. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I haven’t been around here too much for a few weeks. My wonderful contributors have shared so many amazing projects, that maybe you haven’t even missed me! But I wanted to hop on here and tell you that I’m not avoiding you guys, or anything. […]
I have been checking out a lot of miniature portraits lately and was inspired to create one featuring my fatty fatty fatso cat, Babs.Babs is made of mixed media collage elements–mostly paper from my scrapbooking stash, but also some fabric, lace, beads and embroidery thread–carefully cut with an X-acto knife and gently glued down using […]
My boys started getting into Legos about a year ago. In that time, we have accumulated a massive amount of Legos. To be fair, we already had a huge collection because my husband was a Lego freak when he was a kid and so we have boxes and boxes of “vintage” sets. But since the […]
This is a quick and easy necklace I made to wear to Alt Summit. Awhile back, I found a huge bag of sequins from my Mom’s stash. So far, I embellished a graphic tee and made sequins bangles with them, and I still have hundreds (thousands??) of sequins left. Read the full tutorial after the jump.

It’s time for the next round of the Cricut Design Space Star Challenge! This time the Cricut theme was Weddings & Celebrations and my team chose Halloween as our theme-within-a-theme. And I wanted to go with a Spider and Fly theme as my own theme-within-a-theme-within-a-theme. So, hang onto your hats, because I’ll be sharing some […]
September was the busiest month for birthdays. Probably because of all of those rockin’ holiday parties! What that means for me is that I get to wrap lots and lots of gifts this time of year. This is one that I wrapped up for our little niece. I embroidered her name onto a little felt […]
I’ve had a few sad comments from my friends Down Under who tell me it’s not summer at all where they live! Today’s guest blogger is Nicole from Little Bits of Crunch and Fluff, and she has come from the Land of Oz to show you how to make a chevron skirt, just in time […]
One of my Christmas gifts this year was a Garmin Vivofit 2 Activity Tracker. I was excited to use the tracker, but I was turned off by the silicone wristband that came with it. I wore it for a few days, but it clashed with everything – especially my work clothes. After searching online for alternative […]
