Today I'm really excited to share a no-sew refashion with you. You might get a little messy but it will be a lot of fun in the process. All you need is a dress and a few basic supplies. Of course if you want to change the fit of your dress, you'll need to do a little stitching but otherwise you don't need a sewing machine at all. So, get your rubber gloves on and read on to see how I transformed this dress from drab to fab.Read More
If you take a look in my closet, you will know that I adhere to the adage that one can never have too many dresses. And when a dress comes in a figure flattering, classic style like this you can never go wrong. I'm usually drawn to colorful prints (hence my rainbow colored closet) but I find myself getting the most wear out of my black and white pieces. So I'm sure if this dress was in my wardrobe I would wear it often. Today, I'll show you how you can easily DIY this dress yourself.Read More
A week or so ago, I had to get out my old paint and paintbrushes to create a custom art piece for a freelance job. It was really fun to be getting messy again with paint and it has been inspiring some new DIY projects (coming to the blog soon!). Meanwhile, I want to share some of my favorite brushstroke printed fashion finds. I love the variety of pattern that can be created with brushstrokes. It can be very abstract and random, or more controlled with stripes or dots. Or, like the dress on the top left, a combination of different markings. What do you think? Are you going to try out the brushstroke look?

Do you ever look at a photo of some delicious eat and find that your mouth starts watering? I've come across quite a few of those this week. And really if your mouth isn't watering just looking at these photos, there must be something wrong! This weekend I'm looking forward to making rich, hearty meals like these. I already had my family Easter celebration last weekend but I'm planning to make more of my favorite Easter dishes – mainly deviled eggs and potato salad. Anything, starchy, eggy or cheesy sounds just right. What are you going to be cooking this weekend?
I love making Easter crafts. They are so cheerful, fun and totally cute. Plus, I can't think of another holiday where you get to decorate your food quite this much! The closest food decorating holiday might be cookies at Christmas. Can you think of other holidays that focus so closely on DIY'ing your food? I'm going to be so embarrassed if there's an obvious one I just can't remember right now! Anyway, I've been finding lots of cool Easter DIY's lately and today I have a few of my favorites to share with you. Follow my Crafting board on Pinterest to keep up with my latest finds. And just in case you missed it, yesterday I shared a tutorial and pattern for making a Bunny Coin Purse. Go check it out! :)
