 I just  love heart Tees, actually I love Heart anything.
Here is one I made that  was extremely easy. It was created by a homemade stencil, crystals and a little fabric glue just in time for Valentine's Day.

Off the shoulder Tee- shirt dress:. Re Post.



I am looking back through all of my DIY's and this is
was one of my favorite DIY's that I have done to date.
I am dreaming of those warm summer days where this can be worn.
A little blast from the past.

This dress is an idea I thought would be cute and easy to make for summer,
It's made out of two plain black  T- shirt. You can dress this dress up for a fun night out or 
dress it down for a day of shopping or a stroll on the beach.
Very similar to the off the shoulder dress I did for Brassy Apple HERE 
but with a twist.

Double Criss, Cross Tee DIY.


First post of 2018 and I am really excited about this New Year.
I have been  feeling a little discouraged and not really knowing what direction I wanted  to go in with my blog over the last 6 months. The death of  my Grandmother effected me to my  core...

I finally have decided to go back and re-discover all the things I love. Incorporating different DIYs  like jewelry, clothes and of course T-shirts (My favorite.)  Getting back to my creativity feeds and heals my soul, Which is what I desperately need.   If you are  going though difficult times in your life; if you feel defeated, uninspired, depressed, anxious, not really knowing why your here what your life's purpose is, this is the advice I would give.  Take some time to regroup to try and identify the feeling under why you are feeling this way. Walk, meditate, eat well, read encouraging works, listen to encouraging people and song, seek professional help if you have to. Your spirit is trying to grow during this time, to become stronger; help it grow by feeding it what it wants. If you do not know what feeds your soul, do some soul searching.  Try and identify  what brings you happiness; Is it music, art, writing,  cooking, teaching,  nature, gardening,  what makes your feel good?.  Still can't find what you need?, think about when you were a kid, what was the one thing that brought you joy.  Your soul will know when you find it, cultivate that, work it into a job. Dare to dream for it.  You will come through it I promise.  It may take time, but it will happen.  You will be different and you will be stronger.

So now lets do this Tee Shirt.

The Grind of 2017 and the promise for 2018!































Going back to the beginning of why I started this challenge in the first place is bitter sweet for me. When my Grandmother passed away it was one of the hardest life experiences I have ever had to deal with to date. It put me in this unfamiliar place of pain, the feeling of helplessness, anxiety, insomnia, and a all over feeling of sadness that I just couldn't seem to shake. When I researched dealing with a  death of a loved one there were all sorts of suggestions, from therapy, meds, time.  One morning after a rough night and waking up not being able to breathe I decided that I had to make  change. I put on my walking gear and I have never looked back..This was kind of like prescribing myself medicine, but instead of taking  pills I decided to work out all of my issues through exercise and meditation. I would walk everyday for one hour no matter what. I cleared my mornings and started. No exceptions. No excuses. I was invested and determined and that's a powerful combination.  All of my anxiety slowly disappeared and slowly I became sane again Every morning for the last 209 days, give or take a day, due to Hurricanes, traveling to bury my Grandmother, or the latest which is a nasty, nasty cold  I have only missed about 10 days total.,
I have so many more goals for this 2018 year to push myself even further. To push this 50 year old body to its top potential: Mentally, Spiritually and Physically.

During  this journey I have lost about 18 - 20 pounds  regained my confidence and pulled though a really tough time. All in all I would say its a win, win situation.

Was it easy ? No!!!  but so, so worth every step...
Here is to many more goals to be met in 2018 including going back to regular blog post.. Which is over due...


Thank you all for  your support this last year,  it has meant the world to me and gotten me through some pretty dark days.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Love to all of you.

Gilded Camo Jacket Re-Post.

Why not spice up  a camo jacket with a little glitter and gold paint.?






Tutorial
Things you need.
  1. Camo Jacket
  2. Gold fabric paint Tulip Michaels or HERE @ I LovetoCreate.com

 Once the gold paint dried,
 I painted a thin layer of glue on top of that
 and sprinkled more glitter on top of that.


Then I drew what I wanted to put on the back and I used my X-acto knife to make a stencil.

I Made some Angel wings for the pocket.

tape it to your jacket and using your pink sponge brush,

Necklace Tee, Repost




When I saw  this shirt on Pinterest HERE
 I knew I wanted to try and recreate it out of a t-shirt.
The shirt below, of course, is a sleeveless shirt and is blue, all I really just wanted to do is the necklace detail across the top.
This DIY almost took a turn for the worst when I cut one too many strips and  thought I would have to scrap it.In the end the shirt worked out pretty much like I wanted it to, maybe even better,
just a little different from the picture below.
The best part of making things yourself is that you can tweak them to fit you.
The top picture of me is the first one I created  and is a little lower than I had expected but with a tank top under it worked out great. I wore this shirt all day and it stayed in place and wore well.
I did one more with not as many strips and it sits just slightly different on the body.
I will put that picture at the end of the post.
So grab you scissors and lets make a fun Tee!

4 Spider: DIY's


I just wanted to touch base with all of you. For those of you that follow me on Snapchat or instagram you already know that I injured my hip about two weeks ago.  I was on my way to recovery and thought I was healing nicely when  I woke up one morning to a re-injury. (super painful) The pain really feels more like you want to throw up, a dull ache that nothing will touch.  I started over in my recovery process and was given several suggestions on what to do to help heal it. KT Tape being one of them,  *Thank you Serene.*  It was just what I needed. The tape gave my injury support and helped with blood flow. It has been one week and I still can feel my hip muscle but its not as debilitating as before.  I am also still walking everyday just not the 5 miles, more like 3.5 or 4 and I am taking it easy, babying it. Hopefully I  will be back to normal very soon. I wonder if a massage would help. I have a couple of days off this week maybe I will make an appointment. 
I will keep you all posted on the progress and if anyone has had a hip injury, I would love to hear some methods you used for healing. Ok now to the DIY's


Over the last couple of years I have been kind of obsessed with spider DIY's for Halloween. There is just something about those cute little creatures. Here are 4 Quick and easy Spider DIY's
you can make in no time.
Happy Halloween Everyone!

Weaved Back Tank, DIY

 I always have ideas running around in my head on how to change up my tee-shirts. I guess this comes from me not wanting to wear the same shirt everyday. 
This was an idea had about two months ago and it turned out exactly how I saw it in my head. Although this shirt does look difficult to make, it really isn't,  just a little sewing involved .
Slowly but surely I am getting back to regular posting.  It's been quite the year.

Workout Shirt 101, DIY

 Soo we just got internet back today because  Hurricane Irma decided to visit and stay for a couple of days, uninvited I might add.  To celebrate I wanted to post the shirt I did before she arrived.  Glad to  have a little bit of my sanity back.  To be completely honest the  break from all things electric didn't really bother me. Here is an easy basic workout shirt that is really easy to do yourself. One of my new favorites.
