I thought I had a great idea to make my hangers non-slip. I was going to glue the rubbery shelf liner onto my hangers with rubber cement but I discovered something better by accident. I cut a piece of shelf liner and glued it onto one side of my hanger. I put rubber cement onContinue reading “Non-Slip Hangers”

DIY Christmas Card with Window
Why buy a card for less than a dollar when you can spend a ton of money and time making your own? Because I love handmade gifts and appreciate when someone goes through the effort to make a card. Card making is something that I have never been able to do well but I amContinue reading “DIY Christmas Card with Window”
Dr. Seuss Scarf
This scarf has Cat in the Hat red and white stripes but the quote is from Horton Hears a Who. This started out as a simple red and white scarf but then I learned in a Cricut group that infusible ink can be used on fleece so I had to add a Dr. Seuss quote.Continue reading “Dr. Seuss Scarf”
Making Harry Potter Inspired Fleece Scarves
Years ago, I crocheted a Harry Potter scarf for one of my grandsons. He wore it until it started falling apart. He’s 13 now and still asks me to make him another one but I cannot get into crocheting lately so I decided to make one out of fleece instead. I decided to make HarryContinue reading “Making Harry Potter Inspired Fleece Scarves”
Making a Padded Tablet Case
I learned a lot of things not to do on this project.

Now, you would thinkContinue reading “DIY Pin Cushion on a Canister”
Making a Tiered Dress for Plus-Sized Women
So, I have this dress that I love because it is all flowy and makes me feel feminine. I found it in Arizona when my sugar plum and I went to celebrate his mom’s 80th birthday. Arizona, unlike Oregon, has tons of cute dresses everywhere. Oregon has things like flannels and hunting vests. I’m kidding…kinda.Continue reading “Making a Tiered Dress for Plus-Sized Women”
Rant about shopping for plus-sized clothing!
Shopping for a plus-sized dress can be a nightmare. It is easier to find cute styles for plus-sized women today than it was ten years ago but they are still expensive and the selection is limited. Let me share a not so pleasant experience from a few years ago when I needed a dress forContinue reading “Rant about shopping for plus-sized clothing!”
Steampunk Mixed Media Book Cover
When I say “mixed media”, I really mean it. This cover used chipboard, clay, metal pieces, plastic, foam sheets and more. I like Steampunk because I can use my imagination and found objects. A lot of the pieces on this cover came from an old microwave we had in our garage. I based my designContinue reading “Steampunk Mixed Media Book Cover”
