It's such a weird moment when you follow a link on pinterest and see that the model in the post is someone you went to high school with. You do a double take. The world is crazy small!

I'm still using macramé that I made in the 70s. I didn't realise that it is "back" - BONUS!!

Post image for DIY Boot Chains: Dress Up Your Favorite Shoes For Fall

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 »

WOW, I love this idea. I had placed a pair of clip on earrings on my flip-flops and then painted the bands with the 'sparkle' nail polish available and they looked so much better!! Pat

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've never heard of this before! I completely absolutely relate to that feeling of needing to create. That powerful pull. That's why I started my blog, in an attempt to become creatively fulfilled. I've never heard of a Zine before, I'll be sure to check it out. Thank you! http://danidearest.wordpress.com/

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.

I love getting the opportunity to collaborate with Terrain. Throughout the year, they host fun workshops at their store in Glen Mills,PA. Only a short drive away from our home office, it’s always a treat when I get the chance to visit the store and work with one of the talented gals who work there. This time, I linked up with Megan, the Design By Terrain Supervisor, for a workshop on how to create the perfect desert terrarium! Read more »

Since I finished that book I've started 4 businesses. An online marketing system is the perfect way to get started online, because you get to build your list and get educated at the same time. A skilled SEO campaigner knows to ease out a complex site and re-structure it to suit real users as well as search engines.

In regards to present day fashion, the fitness world has created a craze of certain items such as gym tank tops and yoga pants that are worn as casual wear by many people on a daily basis, whether they attend a gym or not.

My grocery carries sea salt, kosher salt and pickling salt. Would either of these be the proper salt?
Marce -Sep 21, 2014, 1:16PM
I tried this yesterday and looked at it this morning and nothing had formed. It's just a clear liquid. For an easy DIY I still managed to mess up somehow, any help? I was looking forward to making crystals. ):

If your boots are uncomfortable, it's because they don't fit your feet. The methods used in the DYI, and ruing the support of the boots. Part of the reason we like distressed boots, is because each mark is a reminder of some activity. We like stuff with a history. If you like that distressed look, put your boots on (and your big girl panties) and live your life with them on. Don't fake it.
Gen -Jul 17, 2014, 1:07PM
Or you could find some distressed ones for less money at a thrift shop :)
