This has been a really hard week for me. First my son turned 3 on Monday and then my daughter loses her first tooth on Tuesday. Not only was I not mentally prepared for either I was also ill prepared when it came to a tooth fairy pillow. My poor child had to put her tooth in a plastic Ikea container under her pillow for Pete’s sake. Not acceptable in a crafty household. This situation had to be rectified before anymore teeth were lost.

Since I'm the social media specialist for a craft company, I see lots of projects and gets lots of ideas on DIYs I think would be fun to try! Every now and then, I actually take a break from posting and actually create something. This is one such time! Inspired by the cool Tulip Fabric Marker watercolor technique Pattie created last year, and my love of neons and geometrics, I bring to you this fun tee I whipped up in about an hour!
Right now both neon and geometric shapes are totally in! And embroiderers have taken notice! If you want to jump on this train but don't want to spend the time embroidery takes, why not knock out some Puffy Paint faux embroidery?

Can you believe it's time to start thinking about Easter? Is it just me or does time seem to be flying by even faster than usual this year? Well, you know what they say...time flies when you're having fun. I guess that means my 2014 is off to a good start! I hope yours is too!
Do you have a boring old phone case that needs some new life? Our new Neon Tulip Slicks will give your phone case the punch of color it's been needing! This colorful DIY takes about 10 minutes in all (plus drying time). Everybody's got time for that! Let me show you just how easy it is to make this fun project!

My toddler is VERY into his letters and numbers lately, so when it came time to think up a theme for a spring shoe refashion, his vintage-style alphabet blocks stood out from the pack (that, and I'm not as good at drawing dinosaurs or trains, which would have been the other top contenders!). And sure enough, when I presented them to him the morning after I made them, he picked one up and said, "ABC shoe!" Exactly, my dear. Now we can practice his letters and colors while on the go!

With all the snow and ice that’s piled up in the Northeast and other parts of the country right now, we thought it was about time we put it to good use! Create unique and amazing colors and patterns with Snow and Ice Dyeing it’s a super easy and fun way to dye fabric. This would be a great project to do with kids. I really love this technique for dyeing. It creates some amazing color mixes and designs and it does all the work for you! In the summer you can do this with ice cubes! I think this is my new favorite way to dye fabric!
