DIY Cloth Hat Diffuser for Your DSLR I accidentally came across this little cloth hat last Christmas when I was trying to take photos of the family, but I hated … Continue Reading →

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).

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

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.

22 Inspirational Bullet Journal Roundup

22 Inspirational Bullet Journal Roundup

I was joking around with some of my law school friends that Today, post-bar, I threw up a bullet journal roundup blog post because my life is a chaotic mess.  I likes these layouts because I am fond of cute things, and also, I think they are different than all the other ones you find on Pinterest. 22 Inspiration Bullet Journal Roundup So for the past three months, I have been studying for the bar exam.  This exam is no joke.  12 hours per day of studying equates to roughly zero life.  By the time I took this test, I … 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.
