Shoebox Labels

Organize Your Craft Room Inexpensively With Clear Shoeboxes

Hi There Everybody!

Woohoo, the sun is out! That's a big deal if any of you have 
been experiencing one of the gloomiest winters ever, as we have up here in 
Central Alberta. Right now though, we are in our second week of brilliant sunshine 
and my little girlies couldn't be happier! Check out their snowball feet.

Heart Shaped Trinket Box

From a Chocolate Box to a Jewellery Box

Mr. M. brought this box of chocolates 
home the day before Valentine's day. 
It has little compartments inside. I thought if I dressed it up
it might make a pretty box to keep some jewellery in. 

I think he knew I'd want to do that, so this post is really his idea.

Bead of My Heart Valentine's Art

Create Valentine's Art With Beads or Old Necklaces

Hi Everyone,

I have three large candle jars full of beads and old necklaces. Some of them were 
given to me by my grandma on my mom's side. When I had sleep-overs at Grandma's,  
we would sit on the edge of her bed and rummage through her jewellery box 
and if one of her necklaces was broken or she no longer used it, she gave it to me. 
I thought that was just the greatest thing ever.

Split Zipper Fix

What To Do When A Zipper Opens Up From The Bottom

Twelve days after I published the post on how to fix a broken zipper slider 
this happened:

To my favorite work coat. I did the zipper up in kind of a hurry, because my tiny dog with the heart of a lion who thinks she can withstand twenty degrees below zero decides to chase the squirrel halfway across the acreage. And only then remembers that she must travel the same distance to get back again. So I rushed out to pick her up before her feet froze, did the zipper up wrong, and it split open from the bottom.

She warmed up on Mr. M.'s lap. 
Smile for everyone, Penny.

Under Sink Re-Organizing

Quick and Cheap Organizing For Under The Sink

Hi Everyone!

I saw a post on Hometalk about a week ago, and was immediately inspired and 
motivated to follow this lady's lead. She covered the area under her kitchen 
sink with vinyl wallpaper and re-organized it. Wallpaper and I are not friends, so I opted to use stick-on tiles instead. The next time we were in Edmonton we went straight to the Home Depot and bought a package of commercial grade tiles ($35). I wanted to have enough for under the kitchen sink and the two bathroom vanities.

Beef Up Your Bra Straps

Fix For Weak or Worn Bra Straps

I love pretty lingerie! Who doesn't? But if you've ever gone 
bra shopping and come home with one that doesn't fit right, 
it can be very frustrating. 

This is exactly what happened with my latest purchase. After wearing my pretty new bra for awhile, it became apparent that the straps needed some beefing up. We live an hour from the city, and I really didn't feel like running back to make an exchange, so I came up with a solution.

Create a Valentine's Collage

Create Valentine's Art From Paper You Make

Hi Everyone,

I love to make my own papers for collage, and thought I would share with you this fun and easy way to make some for yourself, and use them to create some pretty Valentine's art.
I repurposed an old frame that had an elephant print in it. 
It was time to say Bye-Bye to Mr. Elephant and Hello to some Heart Art!
