I love dangle earrings. Ever since I was little I thought they were beautiful. As I got older I realized the expense of buying them and started to DIY them instead.

It’s summer. It’s warm and sunny (sometimes) and it makes me think of flip fops, bright pink nail polish and toe rings. I like them a lot, and used to have a few. Instead of buying more, what does a maker do? We make our own.

Get some good wire and some jewelry pliers. Let’s get to wire wrapping!

Unfortunately, I threw the sand bottle in my mom’s suitcase before we got on the plane and she took it home with her, which is about an hour and a half from my home in Pittsburgh. This past weekend I was able to get it back and start my beach craft project. Read the whole post

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him 2017

Just about every year I make a lists of gifts to get the man in your life for Valentine’s Day. Why not one for her too? Sometimes I do, but I usually stick to the boyfriend gifts because it’s harder to buy for him. (AND we don’t appreciate men very much during this holiday. We should work on that.) Guys don’t give you hints and they don’t care where you go to eat as long as there isn’t a crazy wait. Read the whole post
