I have a super awesome friend who had a birthday back in July and I decorated her gift bag in the theme of The Nightmare Before Christmas.  Specifically Jack Skellington.  This is a recreation of the bag I made her.

DIY Journal from Composition Notebook


I’ve been writing in journals since I was 11 years old.  That’s almost 20 years.  It’s why I have had several blogs over the years.  Some for personal reasons and others for fun.  And while I don’t write in them like I used to (I’ve had my current one for two years) I still use them as a way to express myself without fear of judgement. TIP: write people letters as if you’re talking directly to them, everything you wish you could say but are too afraid to or know you shouldn’t or as in some cases with me in the past, can’t.

Egg Roll Crackers with Garlic Oil


I made egg rolls for the first time a few weeks ago and they turned out AMAZING.  However, I will have to find a new sauce with which to eat them because sweet and sour sauce just has too much salt (I’ve been cutting out processed food and I can taste the salt in SO MANY things now).  Since I had a package of egg roll wraps left over I decided to do something else with them and came up with this.  They make the perfect appetizer.

DIY: High Low Skirt with Zipper Embellishment


I’ve got a new video on YouTube!  This is my favorite skirt yet!  Something new I’m trying is that on the Mondays I post a video, there will be a blog post talking more about the video.  Inspiration, creative process, what was going on in my head, etc.  Maybe I can even post some bloopers.  Gotta laugh at yourself right?  The regular DIY/tutorial posts will be back next week and the weeks where I don’t make a video.

What’s up next week?  Come back and see.

DIY: Aztec Print Dress


Believe it or not, I had this dress in mind when I started.  I wasn’t able to find the fabric appropriate for this dress, so as usual I kinda winded it.  This is what I came up with.  Beautiful Aztec print don’t you think?
