Easy, No Sew Halter: DIY










 What happens when your whole world gets turned Upside down, sideways, topsy -turvy,  inside-out
and completely and totally different in a matter of moments?.
What happens is, we as humans and survivors, we  adapt and move forward because we have to, there is no other option.

I sit here now and remember conversations I had so many times with my Grandmother Polly about her and her family during the great depression. I would ask her "What did you all do"  My Polly would say with a very strong voice  "We Were Fine!  We were Lucky, we had a farm and food.  We would feed as many people as we could. I never remember going hungry or not having the essentials like Food a Water, Shelter, and Transportation."  I admired her so much, such a strong woman. She lived to be 101, and lived on her own until the week she passed away. 

 I think of how much  we all have stepped away from being grateful for the essentials and wonderful   feeling of  gratefulness. I have been reminded of how truly grateful I  am over the last two weeks.
Grateful for my Family.
My Home.
My Friends.
My Life.

Starting April 4, just like 75% of the Country my whole company has been pretty much Furloughed.

 Now I am forced to really look at what I want to be for the rest of my life. Do I want to continue on the path I was on, Or.... do want to focus on what  I really want to do.
The trial is here. Maybe your trial is here too. Is it  time for you to  dream about who you really want to be.?   If this is the case make then make your Dreams BIG, create in your mind a vision of your future self.
 
Sometimes in the middle of a storm everything becomes crystal clear.  Do you all  know what I mean? Everything around you is spinning, churning, chaotic but you know in your soul, deep down in your soul,  you will be fine.  We will be fine.

We will remain strong for those of us who are sick.
We will help others that need help.
We will band together as the great humans that we are.
We will love one another and care for one another.
We will find our Grace,
We will find our Purpose.
We will be forever changed  as ONE  body of people.
 
Our World is Sick right now and needs Rest, lots of  tender loving care but most of all LOVE.

The Stress can be  so overwhelming that  it takes us to our knees. This will determine the type of person you will be in the future. This Moment in time will build in your character,  good or bad, and forge resilience in each and every one of us.

I have mourned so much over the last two weeks for family's, friends, nurses, military, first responders and I will continue to pray for all of them daily.

Now its time for me to create something that will relieve a little stress,  to hopefully help  in my own way.
Creation is the beginning of everything. It is what gives us life and purpose.

I will be working on my blog full time now, creating things and hopefully giving ideas to you  and a little stress relief from all of the bad news that is circling around us.

I really want to say a great big "Thank You!" to everyone for always being such  a positive influence in my life.

Together we  will get though this. I am here for you if you need to vent or just talk.

You can always reach me on  my Instagram. Just DM me whenever you are feel unsure or scared and please know you are not alone.
If I can give you a little peace I will. 

Now lets go make some easy summer halters out of just a plain o'l tee shirt....

Bunny Wreath, DIY


 I saw a couple of these cute little Bunny Wreath's but I could not  really find any easy tutorials.
This one I did is a  no sew and only took me a hour to create. Plus it is not permanent and you can recycle it to something completely different.
I also did a little Baby Bunny wreath and made a Video tutorial for that one  HERE.    

Like everyone else we are on a lock down for 15 days  most likely longer. 
  We are choosing to stay inside or around our house to stop the spread of this virus. I  do have to go to the store tomorrow, So I will have my list and will go and come right back home.

Praying for all of the Health care Professionals that caring for the sick and fighting for everyone.  
I am doing my best to stay busy and positive and create new things for others to do to take their minds off all of this even if it just for 30 minutes. 
Sending all of you love and prayers.

Every Friday, starting today,  I am going to Give back to all of you for being such amazing humans and supporting  and encouraging me, lifting me up when I was at my lowest point.   I think it is going to be  a great way to interact with all of you in this New, Exciting Year  If you do not follow me on Instagram head on over there and follow.

Fashion is my Favorite F- word. November


 


Clothes have always been my number one love. I can remember when I was younger and my mom would buy me  a new dress or a new pair of  jeans  I would get so excited.  The smell the them always gave me such a wonderful feeling. I would lay  them out on the bed and arrange outfits from 5 pieces. I was hooked from the very beginning.
 My journey with clothes was always changing. I would wear my sweaters backwards and mix the craziest colors. I loved expressing myself through clothes.
I was Always on a budget and always struggling when my children were small to make myself feel better though dressing. Now that I am in my Fifty's I suddenly find  myself feeling like I was  back  in high school.   I am  getting excited about dressing and creating outfits and finding that one piece that will mix with everything.   I am almost positive,  that as the time goes by and I get older,  I will be one of those ladies who looks way too overdressed for the supermarket or for the quick trip to Target. To be completely honest  I really don't care what anyone else thinks, because it makes me happy and that's the most important thing isn't  it?  Finding your happy and expressing  it anyway you can. 

This blog is mostly focused on my DIY,  but I think in  this New Year coming  I will incorporate what I wear, because it's what makes me happy and when I look back on this blog, it will help me remember that feeling Clothes gave me.

Love to you all. 
I hope you can Find your Happy and Express it.

5 Minute Tee: The Liera. Repost






I made this Tee Shirt in about 5 minutes in 2012.( The Hair :)
 If you are looking to spice up a plain shirt this one is really easy
 and reeks of instant gratification.
Great project for teens to do over the Thanksgiving Break
 you could even use a long sleeve Men's tee.
and style it with a colorful tank underneath.
I love going back and grabbing inspiration from past projects.
Sending Love and Light to you all.

 Cut out the collar.


Flip your shirt over  so the back is facing you.
With your chalk  draw  a shape like the one above.

Halloween Garland 101.



The  Halloween Garland has finally been finished. I have been wanting to make a garland for my fireplace for about two years now. This year I set my mind to it and I did it. Once you make your little felt characters, sewing them on to the jute is super simple. I love how it turned out.
How about you, are there projects you want to do and just put them off because you have to do for everyone else, or you just  run out of time?
