DIY Button Head Band!

Another updated project.

The Inspiration. VIA
My Creation

I just picked some bright fall colors. Sewed them on a piece of felt. Then hotglued the ornament onto chocolate colored ribbon. This project is pretty old. I finally got around to wearing it, and taking pics last Sunday before church.

Whatcha think???

DIY Tshirt flower clip

Long time no see. :)
A bouquet of flowers I made

So you all know I like to make Casey little hair accessories. And a woman from my son's school asked me to make a batch for her. I remembered to take pictures, so i could share the process with you all. :)

First cut 8 circles out of some type of jersey cloth or tshirt.  The circles can be as small or large as you like. Mine were about 3 inches.

fold the circle in half
Then fold it into quaters. First fold the front then the back.

The petal will look like this when flat.

It will make an S shape.

Glue four petals around a base. Then layer with four more petals.

With the last petal. Roll it so it looks like a swirl. Cut the bottom, then hot glue in the middle.


Okay those instructions are really sucky. I'm rusty.. and I didnt think to take as many pictures. BUT!  HERE is the link for the  instructions I found. :) Just add them to a head band, or a clip.

Hasta UNT!

Hey peeps!

I have recieved two awards. The first award was given to me by ELLE, her blog is DONT SMUDGE!!!!! I shouldve updated this along time ago. But things kinda got mixed up. She presented me with the STYLISH BLOGGER AWARD!

I'm not a fashionista, just a chick on a budget. I totally clash with the other moms I'm surrounded by. I actually feel like I'm finally coming into my style too. Elle was a doll for awarding me with this. I feel special. (dramatically touching imagined tears)

Alrighty. On to the next.. Alyssa of Live.Love.Craft. just awarded me with the KREATIV BLOGGER award.

I'm so geeked (excited) that she thought of me. She actually helped me get my blog up and running, when I had no idea what to do with it.

Anywho this award has rules... (if you want to award someone you can. If i awarded you, this is what you need to do to pass it along)

1) Copy the award to your site.
2) Link the person that awarded you.
3)Nominate 7 other bloggers
4)Leave a message on the blogs you nominated

Alright! Alright! Alright! (loud Kevin Hart voice) lol The nominees are as follows.....

1) Renee of Glow Academy

You can always be uplifted in Christ on her blog. She prays, has a themed post that is dedicated for our sons, and husbands. I can go on and on. I simply <3 Renee!

2) LaChristin of Digital Curls

I always have to pop in on her day to day journal on her wieghtloss, and latest infatuations. I relate with her on so many levels. But I really love the fact that she EATS REAL FOOD but watches her portions while she maintains her health.

3) Jessica of Beyond Buckskin

Her blog captured me when she featured an American Indian from the Lumbee Tribe by the name of India. She was modeling with a crown of kinky coily curly hair that just wouldnt stop. I ran through Jessica's blog, and immediatly had to follow it. She post about all sorts of American Indian happenings. Especially the anti Columbus day, in which Dakota celebrates Native American Day. Loved it. Check her out.

4) Erica of  Recycled Fashion.

Its honestly self explainatory. Her site is all about getting something old, revamping it and making it all new. Until you destroy and recreate it again. :)

5) Zeldan + Festus 

I have yet to catch this young lady's name but her blog is fantastic. She has a normal woman's build, curves and all, and she can dress her back side off.  Rather its my taste or not, to me her outfits are never boring.

6) Laura and Tura of Tikitiboo + Ahka Vintage

These two are sisters. Sisters with a different taste in fashion. Its not boring, and pastel, and cookie cutter. They rock.

7) Michelle of A little tipsy

Have you seen my DIY under 5 button? You need to click on it. People link up on her page and share these cheap, wonderful projects. Cheap.. Wonderful.. Project. Need I say more???


Alright I know this post is super long. And there were plenty of other blogs, that i stalk religiously that couldve been up for nominations. But I could only pick 7! Give me a break please. Any who.... Check them out. If you are just now checking me out, enjoy my little corner of cyber space. Follow me. Comment please.

Okay Hasta UNT

Tribal Print Nails

Hey guys!

I was thinking about a nail print.... I like to do an accent nail on my little piggies. *wiggling toes* I've been doing the lepard and cheetah print thing. My girl Elle presented a tutorial here. She has a blog called Dont Smudge. Its all about nail polish, colors, patterens, yadda yadda. You get my drift. Any who I want something different.

Tribal prints are in. At least American Indian, and African prints are in. :) Here are a design ideas, I snagged from Google.

Arent they cute??? Totally chic. :)

Alright enough with the randomness...

My latest obesseions

Hey guys!!!!

I wanted to show you a few things I'm in the mist of making. They are just picures that inspired me, and I figured I already have the tutorials to make them. :) So below are going to be the inspiration I took from my pinterest board GOR-g-US Dah-ling.  I will also post the link to the directions on the inspiration. I hope that makes sense....  :8  

Cocktail Rings
 I honestly dont have a link for this. The choker seems pretty simple. I know I could wing it, with the right measurements, chunky beads and toggle clasp.
 I really like this eye liner. I'm not a make up artist, or fiend. Matter of fact I just bought some make-up from Love Destinee. She's having a closet sell with her barley used make up. She is a make up fiend. Gah, I don't know if I want to get that far. lol But I'm more than happy to reap the benefits of her obsession. #Cheap makeup
Fabric wrapped headband
 The directions are actually in a youtube video. Great for those visual learners. :)
The slouchy shirt
 I have a few tutorials on slouchy shirts. I like to remake my graphic tshirts. :)
The bracelets
 You can just grab some old or thrifted bracelets and fabric them. Here are some directions from a fellow blogger. :)
The earrings
Now I really like these earrings. They remind me of the Africa earrings I made. I'm going to use the same technique.... with a different shape, patten and modge podge for a shiny luster.

Whatcha think?

Hasta UNT!
