Emergency Sprinkles! Glass Locket Necklace

Emergency Sprinkles Necklace at

So after making the quick coffee bean locket last week for coffee lovers, I was lamenting the fact that whole coffee beans smell wonderful, but it’s not like you could just open up your locket and enjoy one in case of an emergency.  I mean, I suppose you could, but eating a bean is not… Continue Reading…

Simple Dandelion-Stamped Cuff

Dandelion Stamped Cuff at

When I sat down to stamp this bracelet, I had visions of making it much more fancy.  And complicated.  But I got this far and couldn’t bear to add more because I love, love the simplicity of it (and the whimsical dandelion pattern)!  So I’ll be sharing a very basic piece today, and who knows,… Continue Reading…

Glitter Keepsake Box

Mod Podge Glitter Keepsake Box at

So, I LOVE glitter.  You would barely know it if you read here often, though, because I tend to avoid it when I craft.  I mean, glitter GETS EVERYWHERE.  You keep finding it for weeks.  On your clothes.  That you’ve washed.  On your kids, even though they were napping during craft time.  It’s just generally… Continue Reading…

Beaded Button Clasp Bracelet

Beaded Button Clasp Bracelet at

Today’s bracelet project is a little more on the time-consuming side (plan for this one to take most of an hour) but the offset to it is that the supplies are pretty darn cheap and you have SO many ways to make it your own!  Part of what took me so long was that I… Continue Reading…

Leather Charm Bracelet

Leather Charm Bracelet at

It’s fall, and oh leather, how I love thee when the weather turns cooler. ;) It was my mission to make a simplified version of a wrap bracelet, bet even though I really liked the look, I thought it was still a little plain.  So when leather looks plain, you dress it up with metal,… Continue Reading…

Dry Mornings are Happy Mornings

GoodNites* TRU-FIT* #TruFitWalmart

I want to thank GoodNites* TRU-FIT* for sponsoring this post and introducing me to their nighttime underwear.  I know this is a stage that passes with kids, and this absorbent underwear has made our nights drier and less stressful until it does!  Raya doesn’t want to wake up wet.  I don’t want her to wake… Continue Reading…
