How many times have you found yourself standing in baggage claim, a parade of nearly identical black bags marching before you, completely bewildered as to which one belongs to you? Read more »

Amazing!

This is such a great idea! I will defiantly make this to help fins my bland luggage. This is such a time saver, and not one that looks incredibly ugly. This colorful bag tag will be stylish at the same time as being helpful. And the best part, it's not expensive, you make it yourself!

Did not know about sea salt as an air freshener. I use lemons and limes a lot in cooking and drink making. Cheap and easy way to make air fresheners considering I already buy all of this stuff and have it on hand. http://blog.freepeople.com/2014/08/bananas-oats-meet-easiest-cookies/#comment-595626

From previous candle making experience essential oils don't work well for scenting candles, but you can buy actual candle scent oils online (I use eBay.) They're pretty inexpensive and work alot better :) xx

I you want a sort of hazy/foggy effect, breath onto your lens and take a couple shots before the moisture disappears. It gives photos a lovely soft quality.

If they’re not already, boots should most definitely be a staple in your wardrobe. A pair of timeless black ankle boots have the ability to make even the sweetest of summer dresses suddenly feel tough, and take a simple jeans-and-tee look from “laundry day” to date night. Read more »

I've been meaning to make some leather boot chains with conchos, but I keep putting off my visit to the cowboy shop for supplies. This might give me a push in the right direction. http://www.etsy.com/shop/HypnoticaVintage

I've done some patching using embroidered motifs cut from vintage doilies and runners onto denim and cutoffs. It's also a great way to cover stains in shirts. I cut out lace motifs from a table cloth and sewed them all over a tee starting with the coffee stain I was covering up.

Liz - I would recommend either hand washing with a very mild detergent or taking them to a dry cleaner (the dry cleaner is most likely your best bet)

I definitely love the scalloped edge. It looks so cute and fashionable paired with your favorite old jeans! You definitely don't need to buy new jeans to be fashionable, you could use your favorite ones to customize your outfit.

Post image for DIY Giant Triangle Driftwood Crystal Dreamcatcher

Lately I’ve been doing lots of creating. I usually just gather whatever natural-looking materials I can find, put on some music, light a stick of incense, and see what happens. And these days, I’ve been winding up with lots of triangular dreamcatcher-looking creations. Read more »

so I got all the supplies and my fiancé and I made one. I was skeptical because it's been awhile since I made anything. Well, we both loved doing it and they came out great. I made one for my son at college to hang in his room and one for his girlfriend who is moving into a new apt. They loved them. I made a big one for our room that we love. We only used natural things we found at the beach. Shells, feathers, driftwood, rocks and sea glass, etc. I had to substitute the fishermans netting with wired jute ribbon which worked out fine. Loved this.

great and useful advice, thank you. I'm also about to move to a new town and I'm super excited, but also very scared. I am not much of a socialite, so searching for opportunities to connect with locals is key for me!
