What to Do With Old T Shirts

FINALLY!! What to do with old tee shirts. I have tons of pins, but this post has the answer!

Once upon a time, I didn't know what to do with old t shirts. T-shirt quilt, repurposed items, pillows, rugs, Pinterest boards with project ideas... nope! I had hundreds of ideas and none of them were being executed, the tee shirts just sat in a bin, in the back of my closet, or taking up valuable space in my drawers. Here's what to do: Set them free. Set yourself free. Use … [Read more...]

Simple Egg Carton Snowflakes

Ahhhh, winter time. It’s the time of year when we are torn between hibernating and tackling stuff like crazy. I’m also always torn between decorating for Valentine’s Day or decorating with snowflakes. I guess both would be cute together, but after the décor-overload of Christmas, I like to take a break from holiday décor. We usually go through about 3-4 cartons of eggs a week and I was looking at … [Read more...]

Milk Cap Glitter Spiders

I love these little spiders, they make me happy inside. I don’t typically do Halloween decor. I’m lucky to get fall stuff up and blogged. Cause every year it’s the same craziness: you have fall décor that goes up when it’s still hot out. Then you put up some Halloween, and BAM, BIG HOLIDAY! Then you take it down and put up some more fall, then BAM, another BIG HOLIDAY! Then it’s Christmas. BAM … [Read more...]

Yoga Cutoff Shorts

I’ve got good news and bad news. Good news: After having Adam, I lost a lot of weight and went from a 10 to a 4/5. Bad news: I have no shorts that fit. Good news: I have no shorts that fit and I need to go shopping. I do have a lot of yoga capris, which now look like weird baggy gauchos on me. Why not make some yoga shorts? I grabbed some fabric scissors, eyeballed it, and cut them … [Read more...]

Repurposed Garbage Wreath

Did you know that we Americans throw out an average of 4-5 pounds of garbage a day? That’s crazy. And sad. We need to end the waste and start doing something with that garbage! Repurposing, recycling, upcycling, whatever you want to call it, I love taking something that you would normally throw away and turn it into something beautiful. Why stop at making wreaths out of book pages, … [Read more...]

Wine Crate Shoe Storage

Do you ever find something while thrifting or garage sale-ing, you have no idea what you’re going to use it for, but you just have to get it? That kinda goes against my rule: if you want to cut down on the stuff, don’t buy stuff you don’t need. But another rule I have is to buy only the stuff you love. And sometimes if something is that good, you don’t want to wait, and then kick yourself (over, … [Read more...]
