Glittery Asymmetrical Chunky Crochet Ear Warmer

Chunky Crochet Ear Warmers

I need new climbing shoes, lucky readers, like really bright teal ones that So Ill makes so pretty much the last thing I need to spend money on right now is the heating bill. So I’m swaddling myself in extra layers, including this headband, which is one piece of acceptable “I don’t turn my heating on” clothing you can leave the apartment with without people thinking you’ve given up (sorry Hanes men’s XL sweatpants, I still love you). which I haven’t. I’ve made quite a few hats this winter…but I always end up with a little leftover chunky yarn that […]

Free-form Stitched Canvas

Free-Form Stitched Canvas | multi texture

my periods of #funemployment usually involve a lot of redecorating, lucky readers, along with a lot of deep cleaning, and watching the Office, insane baking pursuits, and questioning my life choices…I’ve got this down to a science, guys. (PS If you are currently unemployed and hating it, holla at yo girl and I promise I will change your mind) And you know how? Obvi it’s because I’ve always got a project going on. It’s like that old adage craftiness is close to sane-liness or that a stitch in twine saves minds (something like that… idk I don’t even know what […]

I am fairly ambivalent about valentines day, lucky readers, fun fact about me: I once worked a midnight to 7 am shift at Edible Arrangements JUST drizzling strawberries to meet the Valentine’s Day demand…and you just don’t leave that experience as a normal human being. My chocolate strawberries are en flique which is good because my brows defs aren’t right now. moral of the story is I can take or leave the love holiday. Bae knows by now that every day is Lindsey day (and vice versa :D) BUT but but I love dressing up. So if Valentine’s date night […]

Upcycled Apparel Bags

Upcycled urban outfitters bag

Once upon a time I worked at the mall, lucky readers, which is a great place to learn about many things, for example branding, why working on holidays sucks, and parenting (in fact, you may discover that you never want to do it. Working at malls is great birth control especially if your chosen store is near a candy store…and if you work AT the candy store… πŸ‘ …by all means parenting may just be for you!). But one day I also learned something kinda sad about myself…the story goes like this. I found stuffed into a bathroom garbage can, […]

While I love the opportunity and excitement of the New Year, lucky readers, new beginnings are often so stressful. Over the past few years that I have been out of college, I’ve usually found myself around this time looking for jobs (the pains of working seasonally), starting the odd class or two, and planning my trips for the year. It got me like 😱 So if you, too, are already in need of a distraction this fine January 9th, this one goes out to you…it’s all healthy and normal. While not usually a purse person (purson 🀨…yikes! this again?) I […]

Gear up, lucky readers, and party like its 1818 …I’m taking one for the steam and kicking off 2018 with a topic that is rather out of my realm – but Bae is reading 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea again and I just LOVE these gear embellishments I found by Tim Holtz so we got ourselves a Steampunk post. You can bet your brass that these gearrings (gear earrings…lol) are going to be fun whether you’re into the scene or not. Perfect for pairing with that mug with the mustache on it you got from that white elephant exchange back […]

Make it Creepy: Googly Eye Post Earrings

Googly eye post earrings

I’ve been a closeted Halloween hater for years, lucky readers, well…hate is a strong word…and the closet is a dark place…so if you can pick a vocab word that describes “doesn’t like macabre decor because too wimpy and sunshine-y to appreciate” then comment below and we’ll go with that. I also don’t really love costumes, which I got a life’s fill of with a 10 year stint in ballet. If I’ve lost you already…go..move on to the project…get. But if you want to hear me justify myself, please indulge me… Are you even human? you ask… yeah I know it […]

Make it Minimalist: Enamel Dot Cards

Enamel Dot Cards "Missing Dot Sample"

It has been a bit of a hard couple days, lucky readers, because the reason I have free time to blog right now is that my job at the winery is on hold with all of these horrifying NorCal fires. It’s a scary time for businesses and residents all over Sonoma, Napa, Santa Rosa, and beyond, and is sickening and difficult to watch the community I’ve come to know in California wrestle with the fact that their livelihoods and homes are at stake…or even compromised. I bring this up mostly to mention that I’ll do a real post on this […]

Sticky Notes

I don’t have a planner, lucky readers, which dang better be a shock to you all based on your perception of my otherwise beautifully crafty and excitingly plan-able life (psych), but this is just one craft movement I haven’t had the proper time to jump on. Which is too bad because I LOVE all of the little planner embellishments that are out these days. Gahh they’re so cute that I buy them despite and then need to find things to do with them. The latest purchase were these little sticky note flags by Recollections. Such a cute little color scheme […]

Make it Colorful: Easy Enamel Dot Post Earrings

a collection of easy enamel dot post earrings

I jumped on the multi-ear piercing band wagon earlier this year, lucky readers, so naturally I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about all of the earrings I want to make to fill the void, as it were πŸ™„ …and during my days at Impress, the amazing and wonderful destination for all rubber stamps, they had all these different Enamel Dot stickers, that to be honest, reminded me of the fake stick on earrings I used to get as a kid. So I thought it would be fun to make the look more permanent, and the result couldn’t be easier […]
