DIY: Painted Change Jar.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Yesterday I made a cheap, easy painted change jar. In total the supplies cost me ten dollars, making the change jar kept me occupied for an afternoon, and I am in love with the final product. If you’re familiar with my blog, you may know that I have a lot of things I want to do before I die, and a lot of places I would like to travel to. So, ambitiously perhaps, I’m hoping by filling up my change jar with loose coins, I can hopefully begin to fund travels and exciting adventures. I…

DIY Splatter Balloon Art.

I would be a liar if I said that part of me didn’t want to be Mia Thermopolis. In case you aren’t familiar, Mia Thermopolis is the crown Princess of Genovia. She was swept away by her grandmother Clarisse and transformed from a socially awkward wallflower into well, a princess. And a darn good one at that!

Her mother is an incredibly creative artist, and she introduces Mia to balloon art. So what is balloon art? In…

But after just a little brainstorming I decided that I could make that, too! After gathering up some twigs from outside I embarked on some experimental crafting, and much to my surprise not…

DIY Tanktop.

I love taking something simple and making it better. Maybe that’s why I’ve been drawn to crocheting and crafting since I was a little kid. The idea of making something out of essentially nothing is so exciting to me, but I also love transforming things that I already own. Recently I attended a program in my dorm where we used sharpies to tie-dye T-shirts, it was super easy and the finished shirt turned out incredible! Unfortunately, I got there a little late and the remaining shirts were all much to large on me. Now I could have kept it as…

Recycling Candle Jars into Beautiful Planters.

I have a severe case of cabin fever. I want to go outside in shorts and a tshirt, wade barefoot through the creek in the woods, and stay out until the only light left comes from the fireflies. Too bad last night we got another two inches of snow. To offset my longing for spring by just a little I made purchase of some seeds and soil and I decided to start my own little summer from my bedroom. After purchasing lavender, cilantro, basil, and carnation seeds along with small little planters, I decided I wanted to do something a little fancier for…
