Ice cream cone kitchen art

Published by under Crafts

I painted that! It is real art that I did that is hanging in my kitchen! Yes, it is a copy of “Four Ice Cream Cones” by Wayne Thiebaud. Okay, it’s my interpretation of it because it’s definitely not an exact copy. I went to a paint and wine event by ArtSocial with my good […]

Hanuka Bunting

Published by under Crafts,Silhouette

I love bunting. I think it’s awesome. I wanted some festive decorations for Hanuka last winter so I decided to make bunting. Even though I love bunting, you’ll be surprised to know that this was the first time I’ve made it! I basically just added tabs to letters in Silhouette studio and then added a […]

Millinery 101

Published by under Crafts,Sewing

Last weekend I finished up a 3-Saturday hat making class with Wayne Wichern. Wayne is an awesome guy and I learned so much in this class. Mostly I learned that millinery aka hat making is far more work than I originally thought and far more hand sewing that I originally thought. There’s more than I […]

Easy Resin Jewelry Tutorial

Published by under Crafts

For this past Hanukkah, my husband and I were trying to stay in budget. He had mentioned wanting some casual cuff links so rather than buying some, I decided to make him some for around $5 (the resin was actually about $10 but I only used a little of it so amortized it’s about $5). […]

Glittering Flower Hair Clips Tutorial

Published by under Crafts

This project has been a long time coming. I actually started it before the holidays, but then it was put on hold for holiday travel and taking up space on my desk until this weekend. And in the end, I’m quite pleased with how it came out. I was inspired by some glitter flower hair […]

Hanging Earring Holder Tutorial

Published by under Crafts,Sewing

A while back I showed how to make a great earring holder built out of a picture frame. Well, since making that, I’ve moved all my costumes and costume jewelry to another room (namely my art room) which doesn’t have an appropriate place on the wall to hang an earring holder. However, there is space […]

Homemade Multicolored Tapered Candles

Published by under Crafts

It’s been ages since I posted. With the holidays and an upcoming dance competition, I’ve just been swamped and barely have a moment at my computer when I’m home. But I’m currently injured so on the upside it means I have time to catch up on some of my posting. My little brother came to […]

Silhouette Sunday: Lioness Rhinestone Tank top

Published by under Crafts,Silhouette

So my friend Coco is a lioness. It’s kinda an inside joke, but it’s cuz she’s fierce. I felt the need to emblazon this on a shirt for her so she could advertise this to everyone else. Plus it gave me an excuse to try out my rhinestones. I started by laying out the words […]

Silhouette Sunday: Heat Transfer Tests on Bags

Published by under Crafts,Silhouette

Last time I tried heat transfer, I tried some of the Sihouette brand flocked heat transfer on my pants. I’ve had some peeling issues on certain parts and wanted to try some other brands of stuff just to see how they work and because some of the other brands have more variety in color (and […]
