Recently, I got the chance to check out some wonderful Heat Transfer Vinyl from¬†Siser¬†and I have been itching to try it out. My Silhouette cutting machine is one of my very favorite crafting tools and I have just started venturing into making custom apparel and accessories with it. If there is one thing that I have learned when it comes to using HTV, it’s that quality is key. If you have great products, your job will be easier. That is why I was thrilled to get the chance to check out some of the best selling HTV from¬†Siser!¬†Over the next few weeks I’m going to be sharing some of the projects I have done using the different types of HTV from¬†Siser!

How To Make Your Own Lace Shorts

How To Make Your Own Lace Shorts

how to make your own lace shorts

Sometimes, having a little girl is hard when it comes to dressing them. I wouldn’t trade it for the world of course, but I often wonder whose idea some of the fashions for them are. This weeks project,¬†How to make your own Lace Shorts,¬†was inspired by some designers lack of….what’s the word…modesty. Here is the back story, last week I took my daughter shopping for some new summer clothes and ran into a problem. What problem is this you ask? The length of shorts for little girls. Why is it I only found 2 pair of shorts in the ENTIRE STORE that were longer than my daughters finger tips? More importantly, why are they selling booty shorts in a little girls size 6? I was shocked, and to be honest, a little weirded out. I mean, to each their own, but unless we are dance class where shorts that short are necessary for movement, I would never put my 7 year old in booty shorts. Nope, not gonna happen. [Read more…]

How To Organize Your Make Up Collection

How To Organize Your Make Up Collection

Make-Up-Organize

Guys, I’m going to be honest here, I am NOT an organized person. My refrigerator isn’t broken into sections, My daughters room doesn’t have helpful labels on her drawers to help her figure out where her clothes are, and my car? We don’t even want to go there. But, part of my new years resolution was to get a little more organized and little by little I am slowly getting there.

We all know that girls (well, most of us anyway, no hate to those of you rocking the natural look!) love us some make up. I don’t have the biggest make up collection out there, but it’s big enough that it’s slowly creeping to my husbands side of the bathroom and he is not happy. So I decided it was time to do a little organizing.

Yep, that’s all my make up (well, most of it, I keep a few essentials in my purse for easy access). And I had it just thrown on the bathroom counter so I could see all of it. Selfish I know. So I searched around and found some simple solutions to all this mess that would not only make my make up organized, but pretty in my bathroom! Let’s check it out!

Here are 3 easy (and cheap!) ways to organize your make up:

makeup3

 

First, a utensil tray! All you do is clear out a drawer in your bathroom and slide this bad boy in there. No instead of your make up being tossed in a drawer and hard to find you can use the different compartments in the tray to house your different make ups. (1 section for eye products, 1 for lipsticks/gloss, 1 for skin care, etc). I found the one above for a dollar at the Dollar Tree!

Next,¬†grab a toothbrush holder! This would be perfect for holding all your make up brushes. I love this idea because I’ve seen some super cute toothbrush holders to put your make up brushes in and you can get one that matches your bathroom! Plus it keeps the make up brushes upright and poofy.

Finally,¬†instead of stacking your make up pallets in the corner of your bathroom, grab a cute serving tray (scooped mine up for $2 at Goodwill) and keep them on that. It’s looks kind of classy eh?

One more little tip before I go, If you are feeling really fancy, Amee over at Real Advice Gal has an AWESOME DIY Magnetic makeup board you can make, your welcome ūüėČ

What do you do with broken eye shadow

What do you do with Broken Eye Shadow

custom nail polish

It is true I like to match. I am not sure when that started but it did and as a result. I can’t seem to go anywhere with out matching my make up to my clothes. I recently learned a new trick and it is DIY nail polish. It was super helpful since I can’t tell you how many eye shadows over the years have broken and I have tried to salvage them but in the process I create a huge mess of shadow everywhere. This is what you do with broken eye shadow.

No Sew Cashmere Boot covers

No Sew Boot Covers

no sew boot covers

I have been salivating over these new boot warmer trends. I love a good new sew project so I decided to figure out how to make no sew boot covers. The first thing I did was look for material. Then it hit me I have sweaters. Sweaters have two arms. I have two legs. The next question was would the arms fit my legs? Then would the arms fit over my boot. I had to find a sweater that had a little give in it. I realized that it would. I picked this gorgeous pink 2 ply cashmere sweater. I bought it at Goodwill for $3.50. I got it home and realized it was a little short and had a tiny hole in the side. I was so upset but I forgot to exchange it. I was waiting to figure out something cool to do with it. Then I saw this new boot warmer trend and it hit me!

No Sew Boot Covers

You will need a scissors, sweater, and boot. Lay your sweater flat and cut off the sleeve. Then put on the sleeve on your leg. I put the cuff on the top. Next you will put on the boot and fold the no sew boot cover over the boot.

It was an easy project and it can be done for yourself and your kids. This is a great way to use those old sweaters and possibly use sweaters that you children have outgrown in a whole new way!
