About: Why hello there! I'm 23 years old and live in the Dallas area. I love all things DIY. If I can experiment and try to make it, I'm down. Most of the time, things don't turn out exactly as I planned- but that's just fine with me. Unfourtantly, I haven't met a super rich man to marry yet (kidding!) so I work all the time and do creative everything when I'm not working. I am the head trainer at an amazing Mexican restaurant and I truly do love my job- most days. I hope you enjoy my site! Please hang tight while I get everything together around here. I would love to hear from you too.

I took and edited this photo. The quote on top of the photo is “the four part cure” or, Tetrapharmakos. It was believed by a Greek philosopher to be the way to lead the happiest life.

Soo, yesterday I bought this column. I can’t wait to get started working on my next project. Sorry I haven’t posted much lately. I have probably done and completed about 5 things since I last posted. I  keep forgetting to take pictures though >:(

Well, this little fella has been taking up a lot of my time.. A finished futon cover (hopefully) will be making a debut here soon :)

So, I had 2 really good friends turn 21 the same weekend. Yes, it was quite a rough weekend for us all! But I wanted to do something special for them both to remember this time in their lives- because we all know they would not remember their 21st birthdays. I decided to buy them glass shot glasses and custom paint them. One of my friends goes to TCU (whose team colors are purple and silver) so I painted her a shot glass solid purple with silver accents. It took me about 15 minutes. Don’t tell her though, cuz it looked like it took me hours. The other one took me a bit longer (maybe 45 minutes) cuz my high maintenance friend really likes animal print for some odd reason. I did a gold shot glass with black leopard print on it. On both of the glasses I wrote 21!, and put their birthdate’s on them. I used acrylic paint and then baked them in the oven as instructed to on the paint bottle. All in all, the project was a fun, easy project and it really meant a lot to them. I think they will find the presents to be pretty useful as well ;)

Sorry it’s been a while. Between work and dealing with Christmas shopping, I’ve been trying to squeeze in seeing the boyfriend too >_

Three of the fabrics I have chosen for recovering my couch. Any inexpensive suggestions for the fourth?
