Fashion Upgrades- Lace Top Cami

Fashion Upgrades Lace Top Cami

Fashion Upgrades- Lace Top Cami And we’re back, lucky readers, from a long and lovely London vacay, and in honor of new beginnings I’m starting a new series of fashion upgrades…Entirely unrelated to the fact that as a child of the west coast, I dress in miserably casual comparison to London-ites. Entirely unrelated. Fashion Upgrades will be easy, fast ways to personalize clothes you already own. And to start off, we have an easy camisole adjustment. This took me about 20 minutes…you could even squeeze it in before work! you got this. xoπŸ€, lindsey mae Fashion Upgrades- Lace Top Cami […]

Web Crochet Bandeau Straps

Web Crochet Bandeau Straps my latest fashion obsession, lucky readers, has been those adorable bralettes with the intricate lace backs. Show me a dress that doesn’t benefit from a great bralette and…I’ll actually probably agree with you, as I’m confident there are some heinous exceptions to my rule. But by and large, they are THE summer accessory, along with a unicorn frappacino and some super shiny Birkenstocks (currently accepting donations of all of these…note that no Starbucks baristas were stressed for the creation of this post). And that is why, I had to add my own twist. This web crochet […]

Cascading Crystal Earrings

cascading crystal earrings pin image

Cascading Crystal Earrings it was another late night of parks and rec, lucky readers, so today’s post comes to you with a groggy mind and blue-ish eyes. But I guarantee you my coworkers won’t notice because they’ll be too distracted by my awesomely lovely cascading crystal earrings. And while that may be the overstatement of the day, this isn’t: making your own jewelry is really easy, lucky readers. After the initial investment (I say that, but they really are so affordable) in jewelry pliers and a few findings, you only need to know a couple of few easy techniques to […]

Pineapple Mango Strawberry Sangria

Pineapple Mango Strawberry Sangria Pin Image

sometimes I buy a bottle of rose, lucky readers, and sometimes I don’t love it. say what?? no. I’m serious. and you’ve been there, too. Sometimes bottles of wine don’t work out. That is the magic of wine- not knowing what you’re gonna get (there’s a chocolate box reference in there somewhere, but I’m resisting). So there’s this thing I do with wine I don’t love. It’s called Sangria. If you haven’t heard of it, then that sound you are currently hearing is that of me lifting up that rock you’re living under. The sun is out more often than […]

Gnarwall Crochet Chalk Bag

gnarwall crochet chalk bag pin image

Gnarwall Crochet Chalk Bag I’m learning to lead climb, lucky readers, and as stoked as I am about that, I’m also a little bit terrified. So I made myself a little good luck charm, in the form of a narwhal-shaped chalk bag. I call him Gnarwall. He’s pretty much the best. So whether you are a seasoned climber, a beginner, or just a friend of one of these people, I think you owe it to yourself or your climber buds to make a gnarwall crochet chalk bag on the ASAP. This is a long post, so I’m going to let […]

Stacked Sequin Earrings

stacked sequins earrings pin image

Stacked Sequin Earrings if you’ve tried any of my flash cards, lucky readers, then you’ll know what I mean when I say this is the jewelry equivalent. Sequins are oodles cheaper than beads, and when they’re stacked like this, require only minimal wire work, so these earrings come together super fast. I’m a tone-on-tone kind of girl, so I think this project lends itself well to little sequin sets like this that one I used, available at this link from Impress. Impress (which is a tiny, locally owned, Seattle craft store that I love ..and am NOT sponsored by, for […]

Twirly Pipe Cleaner Photo Prop

Twirly pipe cleaner photo prop pin image

Twirly Pipe Cleaner Photo Prop I love photo backdrops, lucky readers, as in the beautiful, DIY, anthropologie-status photo backdrops that bespeckle the best of the Buzz feed lists and Pinterest boards that I never have an occasion to create for. until now. it is probably fairly obvious to you by now that I am not a photographer, which was a big motivator for starting this blog, actually…to refine said finer skill. And that is where today’s post came from- I’m interested in the idea of crafting photo props that can then make pictures of my other projects, cards, etc. more […]

No Sew Fleece Socks It is going to be 65˚ and sunny β˜€οΈ here today, Lucky Readers, which is why I’m wearing my lucky green in the form of a sundress. but I know a lot of you are still doubting that the equinox is really only a few days away, so consider today’s post a little hibernation-helper. Not to keep beating this drum…but you know that I always try to do my DIY on the cheap. And while this usually works out pretty well for me, the one thing that I really miss is a sewing machine. But it […]

Cinch-able Boot Toppers – Free Crochet Pattern

cinch able boot toppers pin image

Cinch-able Boot Toppers let us discuss the finer points of boot toppers, lucky readers, Point A – they should be versatile- In other words, the ones that work for your wellies but are way too loose for your ankle boots (or way too tight if you wear your thicker jeans), make me angry. Point B – they should be independent and not a sock with a little crocheted frill on top because 1) I am a pro sock-loser and 2) crochet that goes through the washing machine just ain’t the same anymore and 3) see point A on versatility Point […]
