Tutorial: DIY Houndstooth Wall Decal

I have a confession. I think I may be a hoarder. Two years ago, I wrote about the lovely sushi takeout boxes from Maki-san. I've been collecting them since; they're so cute, I was 101% sure I'll use it for a project someday. True enough, a few months later, I posted the DIY die tutorial, where... Continue Reading →

Not sure how this will look like as I'm posting this from my phone. Now that I don't have a laptop (see previous post), I don't have an excuse to not make stuff anymore.

Family members are invited too... but don't you think... Continue Reading →

Can't part with your old cassette tapes? Keep the music alive and slap them on to a frame around a mirror or your favorite band poster!

Frame your own artwork / magazine clipping / ANYTHING!

Anything flat, that is. Let's change things up a bit and make something quick and easy. Materials: - A picture frame (obviously has to be bigger than your artwork) - A sheet of paper / card stock, the same size as the frame. You can use the one that goes with the frame, if it... Continue Reading →

Something Old to Something New

Too many old shirts and not enough dough to go on a shopping spree? Sounds familiar. Update your wardrobe without having to shell out.
