Hair Dos and How Tos

Play & Store Lego Tote

Annie has several Lego sets but nowhere baby-brother safe to build with them. She’ll often ask about taking her bricks to my parents’ house, but all of those small pieces are a pain to transfer. I was at my craft store shopping for something else when I came face-to-face with art/scrapbook totes. I realized they were the…

Quick Trip

I’ve been in New York City from Saturday early morning until late tonight (close to midnight) for the Social Good Summit. I’m here because I participated in the “comments/shares” for vaccines drive last month on behalf of Shot@Life. The summit has been incredibly eye-opening – I’ll have more about it and this trip tomorrow once I’m…

Quick And Easy Silverware Pockets

My cousin’s shower had a rustic burlap vibe and I wanted to tie it all together on the tables. I had a lot of leftover burlap from her door wreath, so I thought using it to make some silverware pockets would be cute and easy. I made two versions – one no-sew (the one above) and…

DIY Multi-Strand Burlap Wreath

I wanted to have something pretty and festive on my front door for my cousin’s shower this weekend, but couldn’t find anything pre-made that I loved. I thought I’d try to make something with a standard styrofoam wreath base, but then I came across this square wire wreath frame and I thought that would be more…

Easy Pom Pom Hair Clips

I’ve been stockpiling hair clips and doodads for Annie’s return to school, grabbing cute duds for Annie’s locks whenever I come across them. And, as always, when I see something that’s cute but too expensive (for me), I take note and make it myself. I came across some pom pom hair clips and knew immediately…

Braided Fauxhawk

I received a lot of requests for a tutorial on how I did my hair for the Britney Spears concert. It looks complicated but I’d say its difficulty level is about a medium. You have to, at minimum, know how to do a french braid, but I think this looks even cooler if you know how…

Five-Minute Shoe Bling

Annie saw shwings the other day and her mind was blown. I’ve heard from friends that they can be a bit of a tripping hazard on younger feet, so I told her I’d make her some shoe bling that was a little safer but still fun. I came across stiffened felt at my local Joann craft…

Easy DIY Crayon/Pencil Roll

I’ve been looking for a cute party favor to give out at Annie’s Back To School party, and I thought a crayon/pencil roll would be cute and functional. They’re great for school or for throwing in your purse to pull out at restaurants. You only need basic sewing skills (hand or machine) and the rolls…
