Most recent project

Here is my most recent project! I’ve been so fed up with fumbling in my earring bowl trying to find its match. I don’t want to go out and buy a bulky jewellery box either so this I what I came up with! My mom gave me this gorgeous frame. Its a little beat up but I think it just adds character. I cut out some fabric to glue to the back. I used a stiff canvas since its sturdy, won’t stretch out, and you won’t see all the holes created by the earrings. I used a ruler to draw lines with a normal pen to section off where the earrings will go. (The organizer in me strikes again!)
** SIDE NOTE*** to make this your own, you can use paint or even use a sewing machine to stitch the lines or patterns.
Once the sectioning is done, I flipped the frame over and used a hot glue gun to glue the canvas in place. The gluing was probably the hardest part because you had to tug on the fabric a little so it won’t sag when its hung.
And voila! You’ve got yourself a chic earring holder. My only issue with the piece is that you’d have to take the frame down if you want to grab some earring, but I figure if you have time to pick out earrings, you have time to take them down!

Enjoy!

Virgin Blogger

So here we go. Virgin blogger at your service. For the longest time I’ve wanted to document my art, projects, baked goods and maybe even a few other random things. Why this hasn’t happened until now is plain and simple. I am intimidated. This site has been started in August and here and I am, mid October writing my FIRST post. You have to find colors to use, pictures, categories, all this stuff! I know I could pay to have a wonderful layout in front of me, but I am stubborn and I feel okay admitting it. Regardless, the process is started and I plan to stick with keeping up with my blog. To set things off in the right direction, I should probably introduce myself and the purpose this blog will serve.

I am 23 suburban of the magnificent Windy City: Chicago. Currently in school (counting the days until I finish) and pursuing Marketing. On the side I love to create art. I do anything from drawing to painting, to pyrography. Pyrography has been my focus for the past 2 years and in case you’re not sure what this is, it’s wood-burning. I use a professional tool that is basically a soldering tool that has a variety of tips. I’m a handy girl that will never pass up a DIY project. I was a baker for a short-lived 6 months, yet a memorable 6 months and the passion to bake has never dwindled. These are all things I’d love to share and hope you’ll enjoy!

On a more personal level, I will probably post a bunch of ridiculous pictures and stories about my dog Chewie. He’s an adorable overweight Puggle (pug and beagle) with an extremely mischievous side. You’ll know what I mean soon enough.

On that note, there is more to come! Can’t wait!
