Late Night Crafting

Hello everyone,

Tonight I am having trouble sleeping, so I decided to listen to Spotify and make something pretty.

I have made many bookmarks in the past out of scrapbook paper and ribbon, but I took a  different approach tonight. I used card stock, magazine clippings, and burlap ribbon to make a collaged book mark.

This was an extremely simple project, and it only took about 20 minutes to complete!  I absolutely love doing any project where I can incorporate collaging.  Making collages was my first crafting addiction, and I still enjoy the sensation of finding the perfect piece, ripping it out of the magazine, and cutting it to perfection.  For me, collages are like a puzzle that I get to create.  So much fun!

I hope you are all having an awesome week!  Be sure to share some of your latest crafty project ideas in the comments below.


P.S. Here is the aftermath of my living room floor:

Halloween 2014

Hello lovelies,

This year for Halloween I decided to dress up! I haven't worn a costume in years, and I am beyond excited. So, I thought I would share a few pictures of it all put together.

This year I am going as Rosie the Riveter!

What you need to recreate this costume:

1. A blue or denim collared shirt
2. A red bandana or scarf
3. A pair of jeans
4. A pair of boots

Then just tie up of your hair and roll up you're sleeves and you are a regular Rosie. I had all of these things laying around my apartment, so this was a total cost of $0. What a steal! I even borrowed the shirt and boots from my husband.

So what are you going as for Halloween? Leave me your costume ideas in the comments below.

I hope you all are having an awesome October!
