Galentine & Chill

For some us, our squad is spread across the country, which is my case. So having a Galentine’s dinner, is almost impossible. But it got me thinking of a fun gift that could be easily shipped. And I came up with this idea of a Netflix and Chill package… Wait! NOT that kind of “chilling”…

Coffee Mug DIY

Roaming through the aisles of Michaels is like heaven for a crafter. Some times I go just to see what’s new. And in one of those trips I saw some super cute decals from Recollections. They are vinyls decals for mugs, water bottles, thermos, glasses, or whatever you’ll like. I figured I’d pick one up…

Sew Sampler May 2017

Let’s face it, not everyone loves makeup. And a monthly beauty box is not something you’ll get excited about. Some of us like to cook, paint, saw, etc… Websites like My Subscription Addiction are filled with boxes for just about everyone. I happened to mentioned to my mom, that I ran into a box perfect for…

DIY Christmas Gift Wrapping

Happy Festivus! Back in 2013, I had a little more time on my hands. I had this crazy idea, that I wanted to design my own Christmas gift wrapping. The money you spend on gift wrapping is outrageous. Especially since it’s all going to be destroy into shreds. My goal was to wrap the gifts to…

DIY: Wedding Guest Gift Bag

A very close friend of mine is renewing her vows and fulfilling her dream of a destination wedding in St. Marteen this month. So she came to me wondering what she could get for her guests. Since it was a small wedding, with a total 15 guests, I suggested putting together gift bags to have…

DIY: Minecraft Sneakers

Last week was Glory’s son, Jaden, 7th Birthday. He’s a hardcore gamer and Minecraft freak. The problem with this is, that there isn’t a lot of Minecraft merchandize for sale, and you end up making everything. For his birthday party last year, we made all the decorations and games. So this year while looking for…

DIY Makeup Brush Cleaner

How often do you clean your makeup brushes? This tends to be one of the most important things we overlook to do. Makeup brushes are an investment and we want to make sure we get all you can from them. Not only that, brushes can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Think of all the…

Mother’s Day DIY Coasters

Mother’s Day is next week. And I LOVE personalized and unique gifts. While it’s nice to give mom a day at the spa, I’ll take it if she doesn’t want it. I think a lot appreciate the memories and thoughts that go behind a gift rather than how much you spend on it. Photography to me…
