Tutorial Tuesday: Bow Ear-Warmer

Whoo hoo guys! I was so excited when about two months ago I got an email from Havalah, blogger at Sisters, What!, asking me if I'd be interested in participating in a handmade-gift blog hop.
Was I?! I was! It's my first hop and I and I am pleased to see my project in such beautiful crafty-company! If you want to make your loved ones some great gifts this holiday season hop around at the end of the post for inspiration!

These crocheted bows take about two hours to make and keep your ears nice and toasty when the air is chilly. I was so excited the first day I got to wear mine and needed it. I got a bunch of compliments! Beautiful and functional, I love it! Fully photographed step by step instructions and pattern below!

Funky Lamp Refashion @ Dream A Little Bigger

Howdy Ya'll! (Sorry, some days my 6ish years of being a Texan show through more than others)
I've been doing a bunch of school and work while I've been away from the blog. I aced my first tests for all of my classes and I have already started on my final projects for most of them too. Well...coming up with my topic/thesis is the first step so I have technically "started".

Today I am over at my pal Allison's blog sharing this really odd lamp I refashioned.

You have to admit, it looks 100x better now right? Well, it fits my colorful taste!

Head on over and check out the how to: here.

Til Next Time!

September Hiatus

Hey friends!

As you can probably guess from the title of this post I am going to be taking the rest of September off here on the blog. I still have a blog hop I'm participating in soon, another post already scheduled for Dream a Little Bigger, and a guest post from Venture's first host coming sometime this month as well. The blog won't go completely stale but I unfortunately do not have enough time to devote to the blog this month and get all my other obligations done.

I am partially prepared for October/Halloween though (remember when I said I was getting a lot of content ready in advance? I got a little more excited for the Halloween stuff than I did regular content) so I will be back on the very 1st for a thrilling, exciting, and DIYlightful month.

I'll miss you guys! If you want to keep up with me this busy month be sure to follow me on my (new) Instagram.

Til Next Time!

Crafty Catch-All @ Dream A Little Bigger

So this week I am very excited to be sharing my newest office organization project! I have been lax on this year's goal of getting my office organized so it's nice to get back to that!

I made this little tray to keep all of my sewing stuff organized. So I thought giving it a button motif would be adorable, and I was right!

Art Adventure Time #4: Castles in the Sand

This adventure is from the distant past, mid-July I believe. I'm not sure why I haven't gotten it up before but it's here now. It was part mini-vacation, part architecture-undertaking, all fun!

Thats right, I went to the beach. Me. Oh, and Venture of course!
