Hair Dos and How Tos

DIY Five Minute Cord Keeper

When James arrived, I went back to carrying a diaper bag whenever I left the house. I swore it wasn’t going to become a black hole of stuff, but of course it has. It’s jammed with wipes, diapers, toys, blankets, my computer, my cords, snacks, receipts…it’s almost impossible to find anything I need in the…

DIY Jeweled Spin Pins

I’ve long been a fan of Spin Pins. They are a million times better than bobby pins or most hair elastics for up-dos and buns. I always have a spin pin in my purse and in my hair arsenal – they come in so handy! If you’ve never used one, I have a tutorial here….

Extend Yourself

When I was getting married, I went in for a hair “trial” by the company that I ended up hiring to style my hair and the hair of my mom and bridesmaids. We tested a few different styles with mixed results, and then she suggested some clip-in hair extensions. I didn’t want the length, but…

DIY Pom Pom Shirt

Since it’s officially spring, is it okay to talk about tank tops? It’s been such a brutal winter throughout most of the country, I really hope it’s starting to warm up for all of you. The good news is this project is not tank top-dependant. You can make it with any garment of clothing, I…

Knotted Fabric Necklace And Bracelet

DIY Eyelet-Trimmed Top (Gap Inspired)

Last week I opened an email from Baby Gap and saw a cute grey pullover with eyelet trim for toddler girls. I immediately had a “That would be so easy to make!” reaction. With spring almost here, it’s the perfect time to alter a sweatshirt that your daughter will outgrow before the next winter. Annabel…

Easy DIY Reversible Bibs

I was looking over all the fun accessories I’ve been making for Annie and myself lately, and I started to feel bad that I hadn’t made anything for James. Don’t get me wrong, he really rocks a wired scarf, but I wanted him to have something just for himself. I am nowhere near being able…

DIY Wired Scarves

I think it’s pretty obvious that the majority of the crafty things I try are because I am too cheap to buy something if I think I can make it myself. I mean, that’s how I ended up making thirty superhero capes for Annie’s party (they ended up costing me only $1.50/each, let’s not talk…
