Under the Sea

I can’t handle how amazing these pieces are, fit for all mermaids out there! Living in Hawaii for a few years, I practically lived in the ocean and have a deep respect for the ocean and creatures. I always came across sea glass, but never knew I could make a pendant out of it?!? The Venus chair is a must have! It’s the perfect shade and beautifully crafted. It’s definitely on my wish list.

Inspiration | Cacti

Summer has been dreadful this year, I can see the pavement sizzling and my poor grass is drying up! And of course I live in Arizona, so it’s expected, but I never get use to it. I’m not sure how anything can live out here, but it’s incredible how cacti can live up for many years with little water. I think they definitely deserve their spotlight so here are some cacti themed projects.

DIY Diamond Push Pins

We all have multi-color push pins somewhere in the house, usually way deep in our drawers. I hardly use them because they are not the cutest, but with some imagination we can turn those around. You can use any push pin/tack, in my tutorial I used gold tacks, but longer the pin the better.

Concrete is making a big statement and it’s really easy to work with. Concrete isn’t that expensive, the bag itself costs about $4-5 at homedepot. My dad works with concrete all the time and not once did I ever think that concrete could be so classy and modern. It’s a sturdy material and easy to mold.

DIY POPSICLE PINATA

Popsicle collage

Summer is approaching and fast. I’m thinking of the beach, popsicles, parties, and well just about everything. One must-have at any party are piñatas! It’s perfect for any celebration and doesn’t matter whether you are the cool kid or an adult. I’ve grown up with traditional piñatas like the starburst and donkey, but definitely going to explore contemporary ideas for piñatas.

Currently on my Etsy shop, I have a champagne bottle piñata for sell and it’s the cutest thing. The first one I ever made was to celebrate New Years Eve with my family, but most who buy it are using it for bridal showers, weddings, and anniversaries.

Making a piñata can be a bit time consuming, but you can form them pretty much to any shape and size you want. Most of the materials you need are already at your house. Basic materials you need are newspaper (non-glossy), cardboard, flour, water, and tissue paper. The process can be messy, but fun!

DIY Rubber Stamp

I’ve been thinking about packaging designs for sales tags and such and came across the most boring rubber stamps. Instead of buying a generic stamp, I decided to make my own custom stamp. I drew a few sketches and finally decided on a cute pineapple. I’m planning to use it for tags, cards, and labels. It was fairly easy and will definitely make more!

Children’s Bowling Set on Etsy

While I may not have any children of my own yet, I love to glare at children’s toys, clothing, and accessories. There are so many cute things out there nowadays. I thought I should join that adventure and create something that children would love. I made these just yesterday and absolutely love them.  The next baby shower or birthday, I’m ready with a gift on hand! Fun for any toddler and helps re-establish counting and colors.

Now selling on Etsy.
