It's a gloomy Sunday morning (my favorite time of day)and I have to go to work at noon, (boo)...So I figured the best thing to do was to share some jewelry DIYs..(helps ease the pain of working on such a lovely gloomy Sunday)Enjoy!!

This bracelet can be a little difficult in the beginning, but once its started you will be glad you kept on going. For full instructions click on the link.

The wire for this beautiful ring DIY can actually be bought at Walmart in the hardware's a little difficult at first, but very much worth it.. For full instructions click on the link 

This amazing DIY can also be made with hex nuts from the hardware store or of course Walmart :)  For full instructions click on the link

I actually bought a ring exactly like this from Aerie, which makes me wish I had found this DIY a lot easy and so cute! Follow the link for full instructions

Wednesday Randoms

So today is my Sunday and as any true human being would do, I have sat around and done absolutely nothing (except crafts).....I found so many different crafts that I want to do (my thoughts are running around like a crazy person in my head)..So I figured it would be best to share all of these awesome, but random crafts..(before my head explodes)

DIY wooden words
So easy I almost don't need to put instructions...but I will :)
What you will need:
Wooden letters
Hot glue gun
Heres how to do it:  Go to the craft section in walmart and pick out the letters to what ever word you would like to make, in the same isle choose your acrylic paint choice.  At home: put down something to protect the surface you plan on painting on, and then start painting each letter.  After the letters are dry (this may take a few hours) hot glue them together to create your word...they come with notches already in the back of them so all you have to is hang them where ever your heart desires..and Enjoy!!


DIY your computer bag strap or even your backpack straps.
All you need is some ribbon from walmart. (there are literally 100 different ones to choose from) I ordered the studs online, but if you like the studded look Walmart actually sells a leather like ribbon with studs already on it.  I hand sewed my ribbon on, but you can glue it on with fabric glue if you find it to be easier (although it may take longer to dry).  Do whatever your heart desires and as always...Enjoy!
Link to studs you can buy online:

Crayon Art:
This craft is super simple. Here's a list of supplies you'll need.
Box of crayons
Hot Glue Gun
This is how it's done:  place hot glue on crayons and place them on the canvas in what ever array you would like, take your blowdryer and put it as close to the crayons as you possibly can without touching them and turn it on high heat, going back and fourth across the them melt away into a beautiful photo of art...and Enjoy!!


I hope everyone enjoys these tutorials, sorry there are only three today but these are the few that I have recently done on my own.

I hope you all enjoy them!!

Friday Favorites: DIY's


It's Friday, Yay!! But, it means nothing to me, I am more excited about Tuesday and Wednesday (my Saturday and Sunday) this makes Monday (everyone's favorite day of the week) my Friday, woo hoo! :)   Anyway, I happen to be off work today and spent the majority of it laying around and being completely lazy, and like most of my days off I rack my brain (and the internet) on what sort of crafts I can create and after a rough day of searching (about 10 mins) these are a few of my favorites for this week.  Your welcome!!

Be Green, save your glass food jars and turn them into something beautiful!

The kicker is that they are colorful, not just black. makes me smile :)




These DIYs were found on one of my favorite blogs  I hope everyone enjoys them!!

Monday Blues

Not sure about anyone else, but I absolutely hate Mondays...Unless of course if my Birthday falls on one (it did this year, and oddly enough the day I was born)  Regardless, they suck and although today seems to be a short day for me at work, I am not wanting to go and hoping time will stop for a couple of hours (just long enough for me to WANT to do anything)...I decided to share some inspiring photos to get me going...

You are, Really!!

Always be as creative with life as much as you possibly can...

As always, good to know
What I pretty much do all day long...

Sunday Evening Boredom

Need to do way more thinking per day....and people say I need to exercise..smh

 Love can make us do crazy things...

More exercise tips..from yours truly :)

So this is why I stay up late..because it makes me intelligent...I always thought it was because I was too lazy to go get ready for bed until I hit complete exhaustion...

See law makers....Marijuana is good for something..hmm

Well, I guess I should cuddle more..even though I can't stand being bothered while I am having difficulty trying to sleep

Maybe we should try the Marijuana to not only raise our IQ, but also ease our stress brain freeze, except when eating Ice Cream..those are the best ones
