10 Super Bow Refashion Tutorials

10 Super Bow Refashion Tutorials

I’ve been meaning to do this roundup of all my 10 super bow refashion tutorials that I made over the summer, but somehow couldn’t get myself to actually publish this post.  Lately, I’ve been working on revamping my Pinterest account, including writing a book!  I’ve also been working on my Instagram and Twitter accounts, although a bit unsuccessfully ~ I have been experimenting with the Crowdfire app on a new Twitter account (to test out statistics). But, at long last, today I finally have my bow tutorial roundup for everyone! Continue Reading →
Easy Freezer Peanut Butter and Jelly Panda Sandwiches for School Lunches … It’s Pandamonium Over Here!

Easy Freezer Peanut Butter and Jelly Panda Sandwiches for School Lunches … It’s Pandamonium Over Here!

I love the fall, with its crisp air and pumpkins.  But, it’s also a bitter-sweet time because my babies go back to school.  It’s like the Game of Thrones finale, where you have to wait until next summer to find out what happens to your favorite characters, or, in this case, what your vacay plans are.  School also brings a wealth of school-time activities and school-time STUFF, like, y’know, school lunches.  Today, Joe Paw and I are going to show you how to make the ultimate in cuteness for your baby’s school lunch: the peanut butter and jelly panda sandwich.

DIY Refashion Jersey Shorts from a Man’s T-Shirt

DIY Refashion Jersey Shorts from a Man’s T-Shirt

Today, Kitty and I are going to show you how to refashion jersey shorts from a man’s t-shirt, because it’s the end of the summer and we need to sneak in some summer clothing on the blog. Jersey shorts are awesome if you are lazy, like us. I hate wearing nice clothes when it’s hot outside, and Kitty hates going outside because the outside is a scary place. Try to find the largest t-shirt that you can, and if necessary, use two t-shirts. Continue Reading →
Panda Sugar Cookies … It’s Pandamonium Over Here!

Panda Sugar Cookies … It’s Pandamonium Over Here!

A few weeks ago, I blogged about making panda cupcakes, which was a huge hit.  Those panda cupcakes are at over 1k pins already!!  So I whipped up another panda-themed, adorable dessert.  (Can you tell that I am addicted to yummy, cute-themed desserts?  I mean, seriously.) These panda sugar cookies are really easy to make, with no strange ingredients.  I found everything at the grocery-store in the baking aisle.  You can use a ready-to-make sugar cookie package, or make use your own sugar cookie recipe.

Live Frugally: 5 Ways Living in a Smaller House is Better

Live Frugally: 5 Ways Living in a Smaller House is Better

About six months ago, I got a bug to buy a pool.  I’m not sure why, but I think I may have seen a FaceBook post from one of my friends (you know, one of those friends who is always bragging about all the stuff).  Keeping up with the Joneses. I don’t even swim that much.  We used to own a pool membership until we realized that we only went twice per season, so each trip cost us about $150.  Now, we go to the lake.  The lake isn’t chlorinated, but it is free. My desire slowly burned out, mostly … Continue Reading →
Sofa Bow Pillow From a Man’s Sweater

Sofa Bow Pillow From a Man’s Sweater

Returning readers to my blog know how much I love refashioning clothes, accessories, and home decorations from men’s clothing.  Not only can loads of projects be made out of men’s stuff, but men’s clothing tends to be a lot sturdier than woman’s clothing — really, I’ve seen such a downgrade in the quality of women’s clothes.  Making pillows from men’s sweaters are a great way to upcycle.  You can also turn your old pillows and give them new life into sofa pillows (after a run through the washing machine).  Double upcycle! 🙂 Continue Reading →
DIY Cheer Bow Blue and White Stripes for July Fourth

DIY Cheer Bow Blue and White Stripes for July Fourth

I have a fun and cheerful (pun intended!) tutorial for you today!  My daughter cheers varsity for the high school, and she is constantly looking for unique and cute cheer bows. I swear, it’s like a cheerleader obsession.  During practice, cheerleaders want the bows that no one else has!  So I made this DIY cheer bow for her for Independence Day.  If you want, you can also make an cheer bow set for the entire team for like $10.

18 Hole Golf Cupcakes: Happy Father’s Day

18 Hole Golf Cupcakes: Happy Father’s Day

I take time out from my regularly scheduled blog posts to bring you this public service announcement: WATCH OUT FOR GOLF BALLS. (I think in golfing language, you yell “FORE!”) Said no father ever on Father’s Day.* My husband harbors a not-so-secret desire to leave the rest of us in the house and play an 18-hole game, along with three other dads who also utterly fail to disguise their yearning to forgo (FOREgo?) their fatherly duties to spend FAMILY TIME. 18 Hole Golf Cupcakes: Happy Father’s Day That’s because Father’s Day really isn’t about the Father.  Father’s Day is about … Continue Reading →
Fabulous July 4th Tie Die Dress From Two Men’s White T-Shirts

Fabulous July 4th Tie Die Dress From Two Men’s White T-Shirts

I’m reposting this blog post Fabulous July 4th Tie Die Dress From Two Men’s White T-Shirts because, for whatever reason, my other blog post is broken — every time I try to update the post, it crashes my web site!  I know I’m not supposed to “reblog” the same post, but since it constantly breaks my web site, I thought I’d make the jump … Continue Reading →
Shoulder Bows T-Shirt Refashion with a Gather

Shoulder Bows T-Shirt Refashion with a Gather

I bought an extra man’s green t-shirt for St. Patrick’s Day, but it was a little too bright.  I think the color is more appropriate for the hazy, happy days of summer!  So here’s another ten minute refashion, making a shoulder bows t-shirt.  This gives a little feminine ruffle detail on the shoulder.  This gather-sewing trick can be used in all sorts of different refashions, such as on the sleeves or on the sides to create a little bit of extra detail.  I always use plain t-shirt in order to show off the refashions, but this would look just as nice … Continue Reading →
The $25 Macro Lens Photography for Bloggers Hack

The $25 Macro Lens Photography for Bloggers Hack

Bloggers know that you need to take good photos, but macro lens for your dSLR camera can be quite expensive.  This Nikon AF-S FX Micro-NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED Fixed Zoom Lens costs almost $600, and this Nikon AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED costs almost $900.  I am saving up my money to purchase these Nikon macro lens, but in the meantime, I want to show everyone the $25 macro lens photography for bloggers hack.  Of course, anyone can use this hack, but bloggers (who can’t yet afford the expensive lens) will benefit from this.   Continue Reading →
