Tutorial Tuesday: Kimono Top DIY

So the week before last week I hit a creative wall that I not only overcame, I burst through like the Kool-Aid Man. Oh Yea! I was worried about getting all my ducks in a row for going back to college in the fall(less then a month!) and worrying about trying to juggle school, work, blogging(2nd/ job now, woot!)when the time came. So that kind of drained all my creativity, but then I cleaned up my workshop and sat down for a big de-cluttered brainstorming session. The results were the next 10 weeks of tutorials planned out and the next two full months of posts. Then over the next few days I proceeded to finish 5 of the tutorials on my list. Let me tell you, its about to be a great two months at The Cwafty Blog.

Here is the second of those tutorials, the first can be found over at Dream A Little Bigger.
I've been noticing lots of kimono inspired pieces in the DIY and fashion worlds lately, and let me tell you, I'm loving it! I had a huge obsession with Orential culture growing up and always loved the beauty of kimonos and desperately wanted my own. One day I will make myself a full-fledged kimono, but until then I made this snazzy top! Find out below how you can make your own, with only one yard of fabric!

Cat Crack Stick @ Dream A Little Bigger

I'm back with another project for DALB this week. I got some new power tools(yard sales all the way y'all) and I wanted to put them to use asap.

So I knocked out this easy, quick(plus drying time), fun toy that your cats will love!

Venture Visits: Want to meet Venture?

Today I have an announcement for a very exciting project.  I've had the idea for this in my mind for a long time. The idea: Send Venture, my mascot gnome, to fans/friends/fellow bloggers to inspire them, explore with them, help them figure out a solution to a problem, what have you; he's a pretty helpful gnome.

 Are you interested in fostering Venture for a bit? Read more below!

W.I.P. Wednesday: Full Power! (tools)

I got to break out my drill and my new-used reciprocating saw. $5 bucks for that, a belt sander and a palm sander. Yay yard sales!


This project is already done, as well as a few other weeks! I've been finishing one project and starting a new one the same day for the past few days. Productivity to the max!

Find this project over at Dream A little Bigger this Saturday!

Til Next Time!
