Sequin Leaf Headband

Hey yall. I do a lot of my own hair accessory making, mainly so I can position things how I want them and because it is way cheaper. And my favorite accessory store is in another city so if I'm not going to that city I'm not gonna make a special trip unless I really want some accessories. So this post and the next post are going to be about head bands. I like to purchase my head band supplies on ebay, because well I love ebay. They are always made from some applique or feathers and gems, or a combination of the latter. Today's head band is an applique.

Life Crises...Not Mine

Hey yall. Well I had the meeting with Terry at the farmers market, it was great. It was nice to meet someone face to face that knows what i'm talking about when I mention things like sewing and crafting and fashion styles. And as well she showed me the wonder of the farmers market. Wow is that place great the prices are amazing and everyone tries to feed you. Unfortunately I forgot the camera so we didn't get any pictures. Sorry. But about the title... I don't know if I have ever expressed on the blog or not but I happen to be the one that everyone turns to me when something is wrong, friends, family, and sometimes acquaintances. Well 2 friends and a family member are having some major life crises so I have not been able to work on anything.   But I do have some projects up my sleeve. Stay tuned. Pin It

Hats and a meet up

Hey yall. Well I have decided to intemperate hats in to my wardrobe and I'm not talking your traditional fedora or cowboy hat (although I do have a fedora in my storage), I'm talking fascinators and derby/church hats. The above collage is just a few of the new purchases that have made my bedroom wall and closet their home. Along with a scarf to match one of the hats and my bauble necklace. Now about the meet up I have the privilege to meet up with one of my fellow Texan bloggers Terry Mann from Urania's Inspiration at the Dallas Farmers Market this weekend I'm so excited. So see yall for now. Pin It

Nursing cover

Hey yall. Well I told yall about the nursing cover and I did get it finished  but I rushed so quickly to get it to my friend that I forgot to take pictures of the final product (which was a good thing because I dropped it off on Wednesday and she had the baby on Thursday morning). So you will have to just imagine the end lol.

Blogging Question

Hey yall. I have been running around the blog world for about 5 years now and the one thing that I have noticed, is that a good majority of the craft bloggers hop from one holiday to another. As soon as new years is over they start crafting for Valentines day, and Halloween crafts start popping up in late august. Why? It just makes no sense to me. Now I completely understand planning for your costume in late august but not the whole holiday. Please if you have the answer, spread the knowledge. Pin It

Goats Milk Hand Soap Ebay Sale

Hey yall. I just wanted to stop by and tell yall that i'm going to be selling some of my hand soaps on ebay.They are very highly scented rose shaped soaps made from 100% goats milk and fragrance oil. I have used these on my face with no problem. They come in sets of 3 and come in 2 different scents; Vera Wang Princess and Magnolia. I have many sets of the Magnolia and 3 of the V.W. Princess. The Princess ones are purple with the edges faded and the middle is pure purple (not shown in the picture). There are some color variation in the Princess ones due to my inexperience at coloring. : )

Feather Earring Tutorial

Hey yall. I know I mentioned this tutorial on twitter a good while ago but I finally got around to it. So I know this whole feather fad is going around but the bohemian in me has been wearing feathers since I was 12 (and im 25 now). When I started making these I thought that I wouldn't like them and they were probably going to be a give away. Well sorry yall but I love these they turned out so much better than I thought they would.

Adventures in home made gourmet cooking

So I decided that it was time to try gourmet cooking at home. Now I know how to cook things from scratch,   i'm not Betty Crocker (which there was actually no woman named that) but I can cook. I just happen to be lazy and have a horrible gross kitchen where we live and will die of a heat stroke if I stay in there too long.

Sick and Messy

Hey yall. I'm still sick but i'm slowly getting some stuff done. But at the moment I just wanted to share a picture with yall. This is what happens when I get sick in the middle of doing 3 different projects at once.
So hopefully I will have another decor refashion up soon. But hold on with me until then.

On my desk is vasolene and hair dye, sketch book, duct tape, earring hooks and feathers, a to-do list, fabric, the insides of a seam roll, scraps, the nursing cover draped over my sewing machine, a cute funny book called "All of my friends are dead", and some galaxy print book covers that I have no idea what i'm going to do with.

Pinterest Tryout: No Sew Pillow Case

Hey yall, since i'm still sick I have been doing some stuff slowly, but lucky me I had plenty left over fabric from the nursing cover tutorial. So a Pinterest try out was on brewing. I remembered seeing a tutorial for a simple no sew pillow cover. So I grabbed a random pillow that had some stains on it and went to folding.

Hey I just  wanted to stop by and say hey. At the moment I am out of commission with West Nile, so i'm not able to do much because of the muscle aches and head aches. But as soon as possible I will have a nursing cover tutorial for yall sans the plastic boning in the top. Reasons 1. I don't have any boning and 2. Dose it really need one? Stay crafty and sane
