DIY Triple Tassel Bracelet

  This DIY jewelry project started out with an impulse purchase at Michaels.  I saw the three little arrow charms and just had to have them!  The next step was to decide how to turn them into a cute bracelet, so I went to my yarn stash for inspiration. I grabbed my Mini PattieWack™ Tassel Maker and found yarn that matched the threads that were wound around the arrow charms.  The Mini PattieWack™ Tassel Maker has 5 steps for different sizes of tassels, and I thought it would be fun to make 3 at the same time.  First, you wind...

Breast Cancer Awareness - Bra Purse

I had such a nice surprise this morning!  LeAnne Taylor from NewsOn6 in Tulsa sent me a link from her FaceBook page showing off a little Bra Purse I made for her YEARS ago when I was guesting on the show every week.  She is a breast cancer survivor, and has been such an amazing inspiration to women everywhere she goes.  I miss her, and wish her well. Love ya LeAnne!  XOXO  For old time's sake, here's a segment we did together. Wait for the little "announcement" at the end.... LOL

"I Love Us" Pillow - Paper Press Paint Technique

DIY Valentine's Day Chocolate Wrappers

DIY Valentine's Day Chocolate Wrappers

You simply can't have Valentine's Day without candy, can you?  And they need to be a bit fancy, too!  These graphic candy bar wrappers are great to add some special pizzaz to the day.  All I did was grab scrapbook papers from my stash and started cutting away.  I pulled off the original wrappers to use as a template for the perfect size to cut.  Then all I had to do was cut out some hearts, and strips of paper to spiff them up.  I cut letters and punched holes from paper and started gluing.  I'm pretty happy with how...

String Art Heart

  String Art has been around a really long time, but it seems like one of those forgotten retro crafts.  I just love it, and had to try it!  This super simple heart design was an easy way for me to try it out.  Using a plain white canvas for my design seemed like a simple solution for a graphic background.  I wanted it for my bedroom, so I thought a heart was a nice idea.  Plus, it played into my "simple" graphic theme.  Here's how I did it: All you need for you string art is a stretched canvas,...
