Give Away Draw On Friday!

Just a little post to let everyone know that I'll be doing the draw on Friday to get the goodies out by the weekend.

In the meantime, I'm loving this song by Marina and the Diamonds. Plus there is folded construction paper in the video that is crafty right?

Glitter Spider Tutorial

I saw these super cute little spider ornaments at the store and thought, Gosh how fun!
I decided to try and make some of my own.

Here is a little how to - and some things I learned along the way

Supplies you will need:

  • Some inexpensive wire (thicker the better)
  • Plyers
  • Glitter
  • Glue  
  • Different size bells
Spread out your glitter.
I choose non Halloween colors for a more whimsical look instead.

Next completely coat your bells with glue, and roll in the glitter and shake off the excess. This part is really messy.

Now take your wire and cut 3 strips per spider and bend your legs, then glue to the bottom of your spider bell body.

Now you have a spider!

I found that adding some of the hot glue to the legs made for some interesting webs.
You can also glitter up your legs, which I ended up doing after the fact.

Happy Crafting!!

Many Updates, Many Posts!

So I'm spending my Friday evening at home, and am going to try my best to accomplish a lot tonight. I have some orders from Etsy that I have to finish up

Here is one finished:

 I rented like 5 movies and am going to watch as I craft. I'm on Observe and Report right now. I have heard nothing but bad reviews about this movie...but I have a place in my heart for Seth Rogan so I just gotta.

Also I'm getting together some things for a giveaway!!!

Happy Friday, I'll be back soon!

Walk It Out.

Honestly this video just makes me giggle. I remember seeing it for the first time a few years ago. This song remixed over the original video just fits so perfectly.

Love it.

As many of you might have read a few weeks back, my puppy Jersey had relapsed and we found that the cancer had spread to her lungs.

Today was her check up.
We were given 3 options none of which are good.

They all ultimately lead to the same conclusion.
It's just a matter of how long at this point.

I never knew I could love something so much.

I Have An Addiction....

So I have nothing overly crafty to post about today, it's been a pretty trying week for reasons I'll get into a bit later I'm sure...but I thought I would post about a few of my favorite pairs of "newer" skate shoes.

For no other reason except they make me happy, and I love them so :)

So new they aren't even laced yet!

Kinda MJ Fox, Back To The Future style.

These ones are just so happy!

When one pattern just isn't enough :)

I call these ones the "Vineyards".
They have a grape print, and the rest is Cork.
Pretty spectacular!

It's an obsession, what can I say. I have to go dig out my latest DIY from my backyard, due to the freak snowstorm.
