cutting a tshirt 15 comments
For my birthday one year, me and my husband went to a video game midnight release party for the Xbox One. I got a t-shirt as a door prize and guess what? The date, my birthday, was printed on the arm. I decided to make something special out of this tee. Here’s how I did it: First, I folded the t-shirt into thirds. Then, I cut 1/2 inch slits along the folds. I unfolded the shirt and stretched it to make the edges of the slits curl.   Finally, I folded the sleeves and cut them, too. Yup, that’s my birthday! […]

Originally published April 16, 2014 The wall in my dining room was boring when you compared it to the rest of my home. I had to do something with it. I’ve always like the look of old, vintage prints. I remember my grandma had a tea pitcher with vintage ads printed on it. I loved looking at it while drinking a tall glass of sweet tea (Oklahoma, yall!). A few years ago, I rescued this old book from a 100-year-old farmhouse that was being torn down. (I got this cabinet in the same house!) Here’s my hubby tearing down the […]

Awesome Inexpensive Vintage Wallpaper Using Books

Two winters ago we had a really bad ice storm here in Texas and Oklahoma (I live on the border). As a result, my mom lost all of her silverleaf maple trees. That was around 20 trees! There was a lot of logs laying around after they cut up the trees and I smuggled some away for craft projects. The first project I did was set a few up in my living room as plant stands. So simple and looks so cool! Don’t you just love the silver bark? If you do this at home, just make sure that all of […]

    I am big on finding trash on the side of the road and turning it into something nice. Well, I found a huge nicknack shelf on the side of the road. It looked like a dog had taken big bites out of it, so I had to putty, paint, and tighten the whole thing. I think it turned out nice. Go through the pictures in the slide show to watch how I fixed it up.

I drink wine and think the bottles are so pretty. I have rows of colored glass bottles in my living room windows (take a look, below), but I wanted to go a step further.I saw a liquid soap dispenser on Pinterest made from a Jack Daniels bottle and figured I could do the same with a wine bottle. I picked a pretty green one and topped it with a pump saved from an old bottle of lotion. Here is how to make the Bottle Top Mirror.

What is on my face? That came in my VoxBox to try for free. It is Boots Botanics’ Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask. It instantly made my skin feel cool and refreshed. I was impressed at how quickly it dried. No extra waiting, which is great for busy gals. There’s no smell or perfumes, too, which I love. My face was so soft when I washed it off! My daughter said my face felt smooth like a grape. LOL.
