I have a lot of necklaces. Remember Naughty Secretary Club? Ya that was me. Not only did I make a lot of necklaces, I also bought a lot. I'm still buying and still making for that matter. I decided I needed to whip myself up a necklace display that truly represented me. I don't wear black velvet like the displays at the store. I needed something to help with my pattern on pattern obsession.

When My Best Friend Gigi wanted some help with making this
Lotus Blossom Shirt, I told her I had the perfect product to make it with.
We had the best afternoon laughing and having some quality craft time together.
She agreed it was the easiest shirt to create using Color Shot Fabric spray.

I recently watched a movie set in ancient Egypt, and I was inspired by all the gorgeous collar necklaces made of heavy metal chainwork and embellished with precious stones. I used some geometric foam stickers (find them at the dollar store!) to help me create an Egyptian-inspired t-shirt, which I was able to make in just minutes using gold Tulip Color Shot fabric spray paint.

Lookie what I got today!
I guess it's official when you get a trophy, right? Imagine my surprise to get this box of goodies from iLoveToCreate with my favorite brand of adhesives, but also a trophy with my name on it with a big bright red heart!

Something about summer makes me feel fruity. I've made orange slice tote bags, pineapple string lights, watermelon sunglass cases and now lemon slice coasters. My love affair with coiled laundry line also continues (remember my painted tribal dish, tie-dyed planter and sticker resist vase). I'm surprised it has taken me this long to join fruity rope forces. These coasters are so stinking cute (and easy) I'm glad I finally did!

Stencils are a favorite among crafters and painters alike, but, finding a readymade stencil for all occasions can be difficult (and expensive). You can cut your own out of cardboard, but why bother when you can make resist stencils using a product found in any craft store: Quick Dry Tacky Glue.

As any girl can tell you dresses can be way comfy. Especially loose, flowy dresses. Add in pockets and you're extra special lucky because that my friends is the perfect dress. My perfect dress quickly got stained and so it met up with some Tulip tie dye and I must say that it's the prettiest dress I have in my closet these days!
