Post image for DIY Duvet Cover Made Of Free People Bags

Alana Frangiosa shops regularly at our Dedham store, and told the FP girls there that she had a really cool project in the works over the summer – a duvet cover made entirely out of Free People bags!  Well, last week she stopped in to show them the final product, and it blew us all away!  We reached out to Alana to find out what inspired the project — read on to learn a bit more about her!

Post image for DIY Natural Moisturizing Skin And Hair Mist

If you live in a part of the world where winters are very dry, I totally feel you. Dry air has a tendency of sucking the moisture out of everything it comes in contact with — including our skin and hair.

What better a way to represent this time of love than with some beautiful handmade arrows… just like Cupid. This is an incredibly simple DIY, but for some reason it just seems to tug at my heart strings more than any other. Read more »

Nice idea with quite a rustic appeal.I have only just finished making one but found it a bit fiddly to work with the matchsticks. Perhaps it is a project more suited to all the ladies out there with delicate hands.

Post image for 3 Adorably Simple DIY Bookmarks

Bookmarks always seem like a classic gift. I’ve given more than my fair share when I was growing up – and received equally as many. But I was never really much of a reader, so I never really got that much use out of them. As I’m getting older, though, I’m certainly reading more than I used to… and recognizing just how necessary these simple little objects really are!

Hair removal in some areas is essential to replace the areas where its growth has stopped. Purchase shampoo or other hair care products that are meant specifically for people with thinning hair. Oils that are perfect for sealing are Olive oil, jojoba oil, safflower oil or castor oil.

Artificial baits include spoons, jigs, ribbon baits, rattler baits & streamer baits. After users select their avatar they’re transported into their apartment. Freshwater fish can be placed in the live well on the boat, or on a stringer to keep it alive until you are able to clean it.

Post image for Natural Dyeing With Coffee And Tea

Told you guys I’ve been on a coffee kick lately… I may not drink it, but of course I love using it to make body scrub, and who doesn’t enjoy spending some quiet time at a quaint cafe like this or this? Today I’ve got another use for coffee — and tea, too! Natural dyeing. We’ve done flowers and black beans, and now we’re on to coffee and tea. It’s easy, effective, fun… and it smells delicious.

This DIY is just the greatest✨✨ I started working on it today and even cut out and sewed on little flowers and added some ruffles onto one of the hand warmers! This is really such a great idea and I know that when I finish them, they will keep me warmer, and stylish too!

UPDATE: This post originally ran on November 4th 2013, but for all of you who are wrapping your holiday gifts today, we wanted to share it again! Read more »

I love it! When I was younger, I'd always try to find the most unique wrapping paper possible for wrapping gifts for my girlfriends, and then I'd hand-make custom cards ... but for some reason, I never thought to actually making the gift wrapping myself as well. I'm going to take this idea over the top come next occasion : )

I wrap all my gifts with recycled things. http://www.pinterest.com/bethob/wrap-it-up/
