DIY?

I could get used to these do-it-yourself projects. Changing things and mixin it up gives me great satisfaction. Also, by adding a personal touch to things in my house that are otherwise boring and the same as everyone else's, I'm turning my mass-produced thing, into a UNIQUE (possibly weird) thing.

D e c o u p a g e is a good way to add whimsical flair to furniture, dishes, vases, frames and SO MUCH MORE. Eventually I will be good at it.


My bathroom spacesaver is my first/latest experiment. I bought it a couple years ago at Target for $30. I used mod podge, craft paper and chipboard to get it just like I wanted.






plain, white, boring


fun, cute, custom

Andrea/Amy: Thanks for the kind words. There's CUTER stuff on its way (hopefully sooner than later). Winter: you NEED to move back asap so we can craft and I can teach your baby to call me aunt Crystal. Autumn: Winter is ALWAYS telling me how I remind her of you. I think it's a compliment.
