Hayley's Inspired Headband

In need of a gift for the Hipster-Sister?
Want to make a quick but intriguing project?
Inspired by something you found online?

I was!

After searching various DIY websites, I came across a pattern that peaked my interest.
Let's just keep it simple by saying - I LOVE the Ravelry website. Should you happen to come across an item in a store, think "Ya, I could maybe make that!" Chances are, someone has...and that someone has shared the pattern on the Ravelry website.

Henceforth, the Anthropologie Inspired Braided Headwrap was found.

Please check out the pattern below for further details!

Supplies I used:
- US Size 10 Needles
- One Cable Needle 
- Loops & Threads Charisma Wool in Taupe
- Buttons

If you are just learning the cable knitting technique, this is the project for you! It was very easy to follow, and I can see myself making a lot more of these head wraps in the future; changing up the wool and needle sizes for different looks! I can safely say, the customer was pleased!

Stephanie's DIY Jewelry Organizer

How to outsmart a kitten:

After too much getting on my hands and knees searching for earrings my kitten pushed off my dresser, I decided I needed a way to keep them out of reach and organized. Surprisingly, my husband Pat came up with this fun project!

  • Cork board of any size (Any office supply store has lots!)
  • Piece of fabric
  • Scissors 
  • Hot Glue
  • Straight Pins
  • Cut fabric approximately 3-4 inches wider around then the cork board.
  • Lay fabric right side out down on a flat surface, and place cork board upside down in the middle of the fabric.
  • Fold fabric edges over and hot glue to the back of the cork board. Make sure to keep the tension to avoid ripples in the material.
  • After glue has dried, hang and pin away! 

How do you organize your jewelry?

1 LAYER, 2 LAYER, 3 LAYER 4 - A poor girl’s Monet

Paintings, pizzas, slurpees – jealous yet? Picture grade school art class remixed with beer. Two words... Blue Shocker! The sunless island winter inspired a summer themed night full of bright everything! From the pizza toppings to the magazine cut-outs and the iceberg bevies, it was the perfect pick-me-up to the winter blues. Ever watch the movie Chicago? Well we tried, but we were having way too much fun as if we were getting paid to create. Take down your art from Winners and have fun doing a painting that requires no actual talent. Need some creative inspiration? 7-11 slurpee mixed beers. It’s a win-win for everyone. 

Even though we’re crafty, not all our creations are original. Big shout outs to the following sites and/or people for inspiring this ladies night in...

Launch Night.... Ain't No Party Like A West Coast Party!

Our typical Saturday night consists of take-out, Netflix, and some vino. A perfectly good trio but we are excited to shake things up! So here we are...popping our blog cherry.

Even though we’re crafty, not all our creations are original. Big shout outs to the following sites and/or people for inspiring this ladies night in...

Dip: Steph's husband Pat! 

We kicked off the night by whipping up a batch of some oh-so-delicious white bean dip. Antsy to get our flower-power craft on, we took just a few but large bites and instantly turned into craft mode. Good thing we had good tunes in the background or it would’ve been awkwardly silent for the first bit! Yes, we are that hardcore. What we couldn’t get enough of, was our rendition of the sparkling peach crantini... Morale of the story, vodka always makes it better! The result, an amazing piece of original jewellery, a few burnt fingers and 3 tipsy gals.... success! Can’t wait for the next MML night! This is how we do it...
