DIY of the Week

I found this really cool craft project this week ad thought that I would share it with you:     Ribcage T-shirt.  I think the idea of doing something creative to the back of the shirt is really neat!  It would be great for Halloween because of the skeleton factor, but it would be also fit any occasion where you would want to dress a little edgier.

I am definitely going to get pictures of this if my DIY attempt goes well!


For my friend's birthday, I wanted to make something from scratch.  Well, nearly scratch anyway.  She had been seeing some people wear hooded sweatshirts with dinosaur spikes, and she asked me to make one for her.  A dinosaur hoodie?  How could I refuse?

Sorry this is the best picture I have, but T-Rex is already safe and sound with zir new owner.

This wasn't a true DIY unfortunately, since I bought the hoodie beforehand.  All I did was to cut a sheet of felt into teeth shapes, sew them onto the hood, make eyes, and finally sew spikes (also made of white felt) down the back.  If anyone wants me to make a full tutorial, I'll be more than happy to.

Unfortunately it doesn't have a tail, but I would say that the facsimile is close enough, don't you think?

New Header

Hi guys!  Sorry I haven't been posting often, but I'm working on a new header for this blog, which means there is a temporary one right now. It might take a while since my computer is very laggy, but it will be up soon I hope!

But now for a short product review:  Yes to Carrots C Me Shine Lip Gloss.  I got this gloss in pink after I lost (another) tube of lip balm.  This is 95% organic and goes on smooth, not sticky although your hair does catch on it.  The color, Flirty Pink, does not show up very well on my pigmented lips, but it is nice and moisturizing and pretty shiny.  It does have a mint tingle when you first apply it, but it's not a big issue in the summer.  As for performance, I find all lip glosses/balms wear off in a few hours, and this is the same.  But for about $6 at Target or your local drugstore, it's a good organic alternative to mainstream cosmetic brands.  They have a nice selection of colors, and I would personally recommend this product to others.

This was not a sample from the company, this was privately bought.
