DIY Dreamcatcher Tutorial

If you know me, you know to expect hippie ‘ish – from my clothing choices, to my home, to my hobbies, and my preferences.

Embrace it. It’s not changing.

Due to this, when the lovely Joanna and I were discussing what to craft this past weekend, a dreamcatcher was easily a top contender.

So, insert this tutorial and here we are!

Bohemian Décor: Bold & Colorful Rugs

What is a bohemian room without a bold rug? Yep. That’s right — incomplete.

A colorful, textured rug is a must-have focal point and a critical bohemian component that you can’t live without, right?

Okay, okay. Maybe there isn’t a set of rules on what constitutes a bohemian room, per se.  Continue reading

DIY Harley Quinn Tutu Costume

With Suicide Squad sitting in the Top 10 Highest Grossing Films of 2016, and the movie having introduced Harley Quinn’s character to the big screen, she quickly became a prime candidate for this year’s Halloween costumes.

Not for myself, though – for my daughter.

But . . . doesn’t she wear just a t-shirt and underoos?

Yep.

It’s Fall, y’all.

And while it certainly doesn’t feel like it here in the “Sunshine State”, it doesn’t seem to curb the basic white girl desires.

Home Décor: Sugar Skulls

Despite being questioned throughout my life —thanks to a non-Anglo-Saxon surname— I still, to this day, have no Mexican ancestry. Apparently, my astonishingly pale skin tone and inability to roll my Rs isn’t a clear enough indication.

However, what I do have is a deep appreciation for skulls.

And, thanks to this little fact, it is impossible for me not to be drawn to the intricately embellished sugar skulls. They’re captivating.

DIY Photo Frame Jewelry Holder

The idea occurred to me on a whim while I was on an impromptu first trip to the Hobby Lobby with my best friend.

Oh. My. God. I have found my Mecca.

I could have easily lost my entire paycheck in that store – just like that. It would have magically disappeared.

*Poof* Paycheck Be Gone

You Need To Budget. Here’s How:

I am not going to claim to have a novel idea here because, to me, there is only one universal tip for scaling back on your expenses: Don’t spend money on shit you don’t need. 

Groundbreaking. I know.

DIY Bloody Crayon Pumpkin

I’m usually geared more towards cutesy Halloween décor as a mother of twin boys are afraid of their own shadows and a daughter who I believe might be the next Stephen King – or Ted Bundy. One can never be too sure. But, what I do know is that her love of the macabre is unmatched by the remaining members of the household.

Kid’s a little creepy. Just sayin’.

Bohemian Décor: I Dream of Lanterns

I have a deep adoration for all things hippie coupled with an attraction to bright colors. The bi-fecta — if you will.

So, bohemian décor tickles my fancy and will be a monthly staple because I love drooling over pretty things and I hope you do, too.

DIY Floral Skull Planter

What do I love more than crafting? Stupid easy crafts with stellar results.

Insert this insanely easy project that does not have to be confined to Halloween decor.

These little guys will be a permanent staple in my house.

It doesn’t hurt that I’ve always had a fixation with skulls, in both art and decor. Even the quickest of strolls through my Pinterest would reveal that. So, there’s no way I’d put these into storage come November 1st.

Nope. We’ve bonded.
