Flash Cards! Tissue Tidings

Flash Cards! Tissue Tidings I’m exhausted, Lucky Readers, and my week isn’t over until Saturday, so powering through to the weekend is going to take some extra self therapy…to include a dirty chai, an oversized sweater, and paper-folding, a very therapeutic activity. …I’m sorry, just gonna stop myself right here. that was a terrible segue, which is what happens if you start a blog post at midnight…or if just in general, you are bad at segues. moving on. I was actually serious about the paper folding. If you’ve ever opened a new shoe box, bought clothing from a store in […]

Infinity Studio Scarf – Free Crochet Pattern

Ocean Infinity Studio Scarf and Purple Lipstick

Infinity Studio Scarf Even if I were rich, Lucky Readers, I still wouldn’t buy the things that I knew I could make for myself. When I saw this infinity scarf on a trendy but oh-so-spendy yoga website, I knew I had to have it one way or another…which meant I was going to have to create a way to make it… And even while splurging a little on the yarn, I was able to make this puffy infinity studio scarf perfection for a 5th of the cost of its original inspiration! And now you, too, lucky reader, can be as […]

Celestial Stemless Wine Glass Charms

Celestial Stemless Wine Glass Charms I don’t wear neon purple lipstick, lucky readers, and that is a decision I regret only when I’m at a party and can’t remember which wineglass is mine. Stemless is in, guys. And that means that all of those standard cutie wine charms won’t do you much good in picking your own Malbec out of the line up. Let’s just say that whenever my irrational germaphobia is stirred, so is my inner Monica Geller, and that, lucky reader, is what you have to thank for these stemless wine glass charms. If you’ve ever made window […]

Flash Cards! Silver Foil Valentines Take back Valentine’s Day, lucky Reader, and trade the $$ Hallmark propaganda, the pink, the sugar high, and the contrived coupleness for your own sweet Valentines. Be honest- when, since elementary school, have you sent Valentines to your friends? Remember how great it used to feel to get those? I’m here to help you recreate those warm fuzzies, and with the weekend now ahead of you, there’s no excuse! These will come together so quickly (obvi that’s why they’re called flash cards) and will make such a great surprise in the mail box – especially […]

Peek Pockets- Crocheted Pocket Liner Pattern

Peek pockets pin image

Peek Pockets! Crocheted Pocket Liner Pattern We have 6 more weeks of Winter, lucky reader, and if there’s one thing these past chilly months have taught me, it’s that fashion coats are not designed to keep hands warm. Despite how they look- peacoats have these silky, finger-numbing pockets…whose idea was that? and fleece coats have, well, fleece, which happily lets the wind pass right through. and outer shells have that nylon stuff that I just don’t even want to talk about right now. Sound like I need some mittens? I have a million mittens, I’m just always in a hurry, […]

Fluffernutter Rice Cakes Happy accidents, lucky reader, get the credit for today’s post. You won’t see a lot of recipes here because if I’m being perfectly honest, I would much rather follow a recipe than make one. I’m a cook, not a chef, as it were. usually…

Flash Cards! Magazine Mosaics

Flash Cards! Magazine Mosaics You know as well as I, lucky reader, that getting mail is pretty much the best. And that’s why I have A LOT of magazine subscriptions, because guaranteed mail is just an all around good thing. …except for one minor downside…guaranteed mail has a way of turning into guaranteed clutter…and guaranteed recycling… But wait! Before you donate your mega stack of Food&Wine, Dwell, Martha Stewart, and Flow (because duh you should have subscriptions to all of them) to the blue bin, cut out all the pretty photos, because you’re going to need them. I’m no photographer, […]

  Delectable Decorations – A Lesson in Fruit Design Fridays, lucky reader, are for get-togethers, and there is nothing your gotten-together guests want to see more than a magnificent centerpiece of meticulously cut and stabbed fruit upon kale. That’s right. And you’re in luck! I’m here to show you how to do just that. Today we’re going to decode the “Delectable Decoration” – and yes, I’m sure you can guess the acclaimed company that brought this concept to the desks of envied coworkers everywhere, but I won’t use the name here #plzdontsueme Instead I’ve brainstormed an alternative list of names […]

Blue watercolor card, teal envelope

Dear lucky reader, -Quick Unrelated Matter of Business- In case you need reminders to be lucky…you can follow my blog on Bloglovin! – End of Quick Unrelated Matter of Business – I’m a big fan of finding other uses for my craft supplies.  It helps me keep my crafting costs low.  It keeps me from sending someone the same thing twice.  You get the idea.

Shining Disco Ball Coasters

Good news, lucky reader! You never have to fear for your furniture again- you won’t have to ask your guests to use one of your ball-er handmade coasters. There are 2 problems I have with many of the DIY coasters I’ve seen around the interwebs. Problem 1- They aren’t waterproof sealed.  I can’t stand DIY projects that waste my time.  Why would you put effort into a project that is only fated to be ruined by your morning coffee? Problem 2- They are sealed, but require smelly, solvent-y epoxy.  If you have any of those products on hand, they will certainly work, […]

Flash Cards! Inner Picasso

I know you’re wondering, lucky Reader, What are Flash Cards? No, they are not a pile of ineffective index cards you made for your biochemistry test. Not here at least, I can’t speak for your desk. The point of my “Flash Card” posts is to promote snail mail. You send mail? You get mail. Happy friends = happy You! These are all cards you can make yourself.  But classier.  And faster.  And cheaper than that $8 card you bought from Paper Source with the fake sushi on it. please. we’re millennials not boomers So set aside 15 minutes and get […]

Miniature Heart Garland

Miniature Heart Garland Hiya!  It’s nice to meet you, lucky reader!   You’re just in time 🙂 Today’s project is easy peasy, so I’m going to play the “First Post” card and take this opportunity to show you around how my diy posts are going to go. First things first: if you haven’t read yet what this is all about, start here at my bio. I’m not interested in wasting your time- it doesn’t really jive with happiness being my MO and all…and it also wastes mine. So there will be no scrolling through pictures that take forever to load and […]
