Holy cow! It's been over a year since my last post! So much has happened that caused me to stay away for so long. I could go into detail, but let's just stick with the fun subjects shall we! 

Since my last post last year, I have been busy documenting any and all projects that me, and my family, take on. I had hoped that I would be able to spend the time to sit down one of these days and type out a few posts, but alas (as mentioned before) I did not! This post, in particular, has been the post that I have looked forward to doing for some time now! On to it! 
My parents had been shopping around for a coffee table to complete their new living room set. The coffee table that they had for years before just wasn't matching their new and beautiful couch.  screamed 'elegant' while the coffee table screamed 'ehhhh.' They…

Designing a Sweatshirt

I have been on the hunt for fashionable, yet decently priced, sweatshirts. For my kind of style, they're normally over priced. And let me tell you, window shopping does not help the situation! Searching through stores just made me want to buy everything in site, which does not help the 'decently priced' aspect of shopping. So, I took to creating my own!

This is where trusty ol' Pinterest comes in! ;) There were so many cute ideas, I really couldn't decide which style I wanted to create first. After looking for what seemed like ages, I chose to create a diamond design with a galaxy theme. There's not much else to explain other than showing you, so on to the goods!
You will need:
A sweatshirt of your size (I purchased mine for $4.60 from Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon)
Fabric paint of various shades of pink, blue, purple and white (If you are creating on any other color besides black, you will also need black)
Fluffy paintbrush
Plate
Toothbrush
Piece of cardboard big…

Closet to Reading Nook Transformation

My dear ol' mother has a home studio for her photography business. It is pretty impressive how she created a business space from two separate rooms. In her waiting room, she wanted to add a space just for children without taking up too much room. She had a cluttered closet that was overflowing with things that had no place in the house.

My mother came up with the idea of a reading nook after completely cleaning out the closet. Once it was bare, she was able to see the potential.

Before the conversion of the closet, the only distraction she had for the children of her clients was a small basket filled with toys hidden underneath a chair. Needless to say, there was not much for children in the room.

Unfortunately, we don't have any cluttered before pictures of the closet to show you, so you'll just have to take my word for it! It was M-E-S-S-Y! It was almost unusable as a closet, more like a hoarder's paradise! There were shelves attached to the walls that she removed, …

A Mermaid's Dream Party

A few months ago, my little sister turned the big ol' seven. My mom, the one whom I got my crafting/baking/decorating/just about everything from, decided to create a wonderful party fit for a mermaid princess. Of course, my sister loved the idea, and my mom started the months of planning. 


Little K's birthday party was in October, but my mom got started on it well before, closer to June or July. She wanted every little detail to be perfect, and let me tell you, it really was! I was there to aid in the party and ensure that everything went smoothly. All of the little mermaids had a blast, and it was so great seeing all of the fun that they were having. 
When the mermaids arrived to the party, they were given adorable handmade outfits. Each outfit had a shirt with blue bows attached, and a mermaid tail made out of elastic fabric. The bottom of the tail was made from tulle, which added to the "mermaid-ness."
