The Twelve Days of Christmas Crafting: Day 12, Pom Pom Wreath.


 Well here we are on the last day of My Twelve days of Christmas Crafting. Phewww I did it!
 This was an idea I got from a wonderful friend of mine Karen Miller, except she used the loopy yarn and put trees in the bottom. It was so beautiful and  I was so inspired, that I had to make one too. The one thing was they only had one package of loopy yarn, and it just wasn't enough so I used a vintage white, big blanket yarn, instead. I also  used different sized Pom Poms instead of Trees.  This would be so cute with little hearts hanging for Valentines day or Little snowmen for January. Whatever you decide to do with it is up to you, and making it personal is what Crafting and Diy-ing is all about.
I hope all of you had a Very Merry Christmas. Mine was spent with Family, eating, opening gifts, laughing  and Playing Werewolf( if you haven't heard of it, look it up, its great to play with a big group of people.)I hope All of you Had a Beautiful Christmas.

Twelve Days of Christmas Crafting: Day 10, Christmas, Tree Tea Towels


 I am on the last couple of Projects for my 12 Days of Christmas Crafting. Next Christmas I am going to Start way earlier.  Even though I loved every second of doing it, Time always seemed to be pushing against me.  Even though I only have two projects left my wish would have been to have been finished about a week ago or a little earlier. It is what is this year .
 Next year will be different.
These cute little Tea Towels are really easy to make and you can do any design you would like. Hearts, Birds, flags, Snowmen.When you want to personalize something this is just the ticket.
When I  Am done with my Twelve days I am making a ton of these, in  different themes.
I hope you are all enjoying family and friends this Christmas season because it is truly all we really have, the friends and family in our lives are our greatest gifts.
Make sure they know how important they are.

The Twelve Days of Christmas of Christmas Crafting: Day 9, Felted Polka Dot Sweater.





 Day 9, Of my Twelve days of  Christmas Crafting. I really wanted to do a Christmas Fashion DIY  in one of these  projects.  I have seen so many cute Retro Polka Dots this Holiday Season I thought it would look wonderful on a sweater. Felting is always an  awesome way to get that look store bought look . It is also pretty easy to accomplish and does not take that much time. I did this sweater in about an hour.
All you need is a few felting supplies.( I found all of mine at Hobby Lobby)
Do not waist your time looking at Michael's they have nothing there for felting.
This Sweater turned out just as I imagined, and I love it so much I was thinking of polka dot felting everything. I think a polka dot tea towel would be awesome for my kitchen.
 Enjoy

 Yesterday, I Kind of took the day off of Blogging and deep cleaned my kitchen so I could decorate for Christmas. What was suppose to take about an hour or two ended up taking about four hours because I had to redo some of the light that had gone out on my Kitchen tree. (Boo) That was almost how every tree was this year One strand of lights out, 8 stands on the tree, now you have to find the broken lights, then replace them  , Not fun if your all finished decorating.

This Star Tinsel tutorial is so easy to make. They could be an ornament or a wall hanging or tag on a gift. endless possibilities. I just love endless possibilities.

Boho, Fringe Sandal DIY.



 Summer has gone by incredibly fast for me, like it always does, but I am not too  sad to see it go this year like I normally am.  The older I get the more I Love the change in weather, especially because Florida Summers seem to go on forever, and ever, and EVER. I think our hottest months are September and October. With that being said I would never change my Super hot summers for the bitter cold winters of the North. I am a true Florida Girl, I love my beaches. I think I can speak for all Floridians, Fall here is about two minutes and we pull out our sweaters at 70 degrees, because we know its the only chance we will get to wear them, well I do anyway. And 65 degrees ohh just forget it, that's freezing and it's heavy jacket time. While everyone else in the country is putting their summer things away after Labor day, we Floridians love to stretch out our summer attire way longer. I could most likely get a whole month longer to wear these sandals and no one here would think "Oooooo shes wearing white after labor day." That rule does not apply here.
 I hope all of you had a beautiful summer.  My fall is going to be filled with all sorts of fun and amazing things and I cant wait to share them with all of you.!!  

 I bought these sandals at Charlotte Russe  and the first thing I did was stain them with something, not just in one place but in two. "Good Job Anne!-In the closest they went.-  One day while I was on Pinterest I saw the cutest fringe sandals and of course I thought "Restyle" I really do love the way they turned out.   I ended up taking the fringe off the top around the ankle because it was just more "my style."  The moral of the story don't just throw them away, restyle them if you can!

Easy, Cutout Grey Tank: DIY






 As I sit down to right out a little description on  this super easy tank, there are  so many things running  though my mind that I want to share with all of you. I think I will just number them. much easier.

 1. I started to really vamp up my exercise and I am trying something called intermediate fasting. Ever heard of it? Well I have only been doing it about one week  seriously, I am liking it so far, no hunger or cravings.
2. I have lost about 5 pounds since July 12. This is When I started using  Xtend free BCAA's
3. My mind has really started to race with new fall Ideas for my Blog.
4. On Vacation this Week  (squealing on the inside) Doing  a stay-cation and I am thrilled. We will be doing just fun stuff around here like Disney, dinners, pressure washing, movies, playing Fortnite and all without stress, I am seriously am looking forward to it.
5 Getting ready to conquer a really big fear I have.( Fear of Flying)!
 This October I will be traveling to Scotland.OMG  *Doing something that scares me, its on my Bucket list.*
6. I am trying really hard to post one video a week to my You tube channel.
7. My Daughter will be moving back close to me in September. She has been gone for 2 years, its been terrible . So very ecstatic that she will  be close again
8 I re-worked my front porch  with plants and chairs and candles so now every chance I get, especially in the morning, I go out there, listen to 40's music, light candles at night, read, or meditate.   The porch is SO heavenly that even my husband says " you wanna go sit outside?"
 I am sure there are lots of other things I could share but I will save them for another day.
If you would like to follow along on my awesome Stay cation. Go follow me on Instagram  or Snapchat. I post all the  fun stuff there daily.

No Sew, Yellow Halter: DIY




 Such an easy tee to make. I mean, I made this in less than 5 minutes.   This top would be so cute with some shorts or a pair of jeans. Summers here in Florida are so hot. How cute would this be on a little 3 year old with some black and white shorts. I might have to start making little mini versions of all my tees. I hope all of you are having a wonderful summer. It is going by super quick for me.

No Sew, Grey, Summer Tee-shirt Dress: DIY.








Working on no sew tee shirts is probably my favorite thing to do. Figuring out and creating different designs is always a challenge and so rewarding when they work out the way I see them in my head.
This cute little dress came from a mess up tee which goes to show you that sometimes mess ups are the best.  You really need to be open minded and think outside the box when you create because your best might come your worst. "Such is  Life."

No Sew,One Shoulder, Side Tied Shirt;DIY

 Say the title of this post three times fast.

 I was in the middle of working on a different project when I had someone ask me about another  shirt I had made a year ago and they could not find a tutorial on it. When I  went to look for the tutorial for them  I realized that I had not made one. What the heck ...
Then I realized It was Right when my Grandmother had passed away and I am sure my mind was a little crazy at the time. I really  wanted to post a tutorial on it  so I  quickly re-made the shirt. and wrote up this tutorial
 This shirt would be really cute with jeans or shorts or even paired with a cute skirt. 
The best thing about this shirt is it is completely adjustable. You can make it as tight or as loose as you want.


So sorry it took me a year to accomplish this :/

Criss Crossed, Ladder Back Tee DIY.






To be completely honest I have about 5 tee's I  have done That I  have not written one tutorial.     I am terrible at multitasking lately. I sit down to write them and I get all antsy and I end up  getting up doing something else. I have no clue what is wrong with me, anyone else feeling discombobulated lately.?   As  I type this I feel like I don't want really want to sit here,  I do have two loads of laundry going and my dish washer is cleaning my dishes.....   so I am doing something kind of.     If I could just finish this one post  it might  propel the others in getting finished. What  I really want to do is to  go work out because all of this is  stressing me out.   Annnyyy wayyyy.   I hope you guys enjoy this Tee it was really fun to create. Bare with me while I defrag.

Re-Post:Multi-tied Back Tee.DIY


I was Scrolling through Pinterest and  I came across one of my favorite No sew tees. 
I am thinking I might have to re-create this somehow.



Original Post was August 2017.

Tied back tees are all the rage this summer. I mean I  don't think I have walked passed a window of a clothing store that was not displaying at least ten of them.
What I liked best about this shirt was  how easy it was to create.  This one is similar to the cut out shoulder tee,  HERE,  and my brain was spinning with ideas on how to expand on it.  I was originally  going to make this a little differently but I really liked how it turned out.
Happy Accidents are my favorite.
Another plus... this shirt  is totally adjustable. You can tie it tight or loose, which makes it fit YOUR body shape.
 Oh,... and can we talk about this bag?  This bag was something I found at Target while shopping with my Mom. It is suppose to be a Beach bag but I am seriously thinking about making it my Late summer, all around bag. I mean look at it, I could fit one of those tiny houses from HGTV in it. Anyway That bag is a whole other blog post. If you want to know how easy it is to make this shirt just click below.
