Whimsical Fun DIY Decorated Water Bottles

For awhile I've been thinking of throwing my daughter a party. I have to say the most fun part is thinking of a theme and decorating around it. There are websites that provide endless inspiration. However the biggest thrill is when you could put something together that is SUPER CHEAP! Yes that's right, I said cheap!!! So with that being my inspiration my latest craft I give you are these cute little diy decorated water bottles. All you need is a case of the small water bottles and a roll of large size kawaii deco tape. You can find kawaii deco tape on Etsy by doing a simple search under the supplies category.


1) Measure the circumference around your bottle.
2) Cut tape according to length.
3) Peel off backing and adhere to bottle(s).

It's that simple!

Customizable Diy Clock

Tick tock, tick you hear that? Thats the sound of time telling you that your boring walls need a little sprucing up! However you won't need much time to make this easy diy clock that can be customized to match your room in millions of ways thanks to the clever scrapbook industry. For as much paper there is on the market, you have that many choices on how you want your clock to look.

What you'll need;


  1. Decide on your clock's shape. Adhere paper to foam-core board using spray adhesive. Cut out the desired shape using a crafts knife.
  2. If desired, paint chipboard numbers in a coordinating color; let dry. Attach to the clock face with glue.
  3. Mark the location for the clockworks. Using a 5/16-inch-diameter dowel sharpened to a point (or a round pencil or awl), puncture a 5/16-inch hole. Carefully trim excess paper from the hole with a crafts knife.
  4. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to attach the clockworks

Schools Back!....Freebie Time!

So as a kid the time I hated MOST was August. Why? Because it was that time of year that all the "back to school" commercials were shown on tv reminding us that our freedom was about to come to an end! It didn't matter how cute the item was that they were selling....cute could not cure that sinking feeling I had in my stomach.

As an adult now, my feelings could not be more different! I LOVE this month! Why? Because it is that time of the year that reminds ME of how I might be getting back some of MY FREEDOM by sending my child off to!!!!! Don't get me wrong, I love her a lot but every parent enjoys those few silent moments in the day that only school can provide you! In celebration of going back to school I found this most adorable desktop wallpaper background calender available in different sizes for download here, thanks to BerrySprite. Make sure you visit her Flickr stream.....she's got some of the cutest things! So to all my fellow mommies out there....CONGRATULATIONS on surviving yet another summer!

Summer Home Handmade Polymer Clay Button Embellishments-Set of 7

Summer time reminds me of a lot of things.....fresh cut grass, the smell of flowers, vacations and more! I love summer and wish it was all year round! To celebrate the season I made these sweet little polymer clay buttons called "Summer Home" found in my shop here. I baked and glazed these buttons to give them a very shiny surface. Unfortunately my picture taking skills lack a bit and I was not able to photograph the shine! I love how these turned out....especially the hot pink and pearly pale pink colors in this set! I'm playing around with polymer clay these days and expanding my button line to go above the chipboard epoxy buttons I carry in my shop. I've already made several other type of sets/themes just waiting to be photographed. Hopefully I can do that before the summer ends!!!!

Popsicles, Popsicles, and More Popsicles!

Etsy, crafts, and bright colors are a serious addiction for me! As if the countless hours on that site looking up truly unique things is not enough for me I found a new hobby....creating "treasuries". A treasury is a showcase of items from other people's shops that you admire. You can put it together by theme, colors, etc. My first showcase was inspired by my previous blog entry explaining how to make diy soaps. The popsicle soaps inspired me to look up all things "popsicle" related and voila...this is what I came up with. The colors are so bright, so vibrant that I just HAD to share! To get a closer look at each item featured in my treasury and where to purchase them click here.

DIY Soap Tutorials

The art of soap making goes back hundreds of years. Over time it has evolved from simple white square bars to something that can function as both a practical cleaning product and a decorative item. There are several great online tutorials to making soap but a really comprehensive sight that lists the different types of soap making process can be found here. Not only will you find the different methods but also everything from lotion formulas, coloring options, to building soap cutters and more. However if you feel like you can't master this fine art or don't have time then I suggest checking out this online shop for their cute popsicle soaps. You will find a wide range of glycerin soaps in Soapy Love's shop from these citrus soaps pictured here to "Peachy Keen", "Confetti Cupcake", "Candy Carousel" and more. I'm in love with the pink grapefruit ones! Be the hit of your next party with these as your centerpieces!

Easy DIY Colorul Room Project

Colorful, fun, flirty, girly, feminine, vibrant, whimsical....all words that come to my mind when I see rooms like this! To achieve this look or something close to it is relatively easy. Buy several colorful pillows to decorate your room. If you are good at sewing, even better....make your own and save some of the fabric. Purchase a few plastic frames from a thrift store, dollar store, Walmart etc. (anywhere) along with Krylon Plastic Fusion paint. Lay your frames out on plastic sheeting or any other protective cloth. First prime your surface if needed and than spray away with 30 second intervals. Allow the paint to dry (approx. 30 minutes) and have yourself a colorful frame! Repeat a few additional times with your other frames using other colors to coordinate with the fabric within your pillows. Also purchase other plastic nic nacs of your choice like the owls in this picture and spray away in the same manner you did with the frames. Now remember that additional fabric I mentioned earlier to you diy sewers? Use that in the frame. For those of you who bought your pillows and don't have the extra matching fabric, no problems! Just use any other fabric that goes well....the print does not have to match the print of the fabric in the pillows for this project. You could even use scrapbook paper instead in the frames.

So "Tweet" Cookies!

Awww, these look so sweet! But what are they? They are cookies of course! But why do they look so smooth you may ask? That is because over at the blog "The Decorated Cookie" they were playing around with what the baking industry calls "poured icing sugar", a sugar you usually pour opposed to roll out like fondant or pipe. It is usually reserved for little baked goods like petite fours to give it that smooth finish. The Decorated Cookie blog has been gracious enough to share with us the "how to" to be found here if you'd like to take a stab at making these cute cookies. All I can say is, they are just so "tweet"!!!!!

DIY Flower Wrapped Favors

The LemonDrop Tree blog is all about bright, all about colorful, all about pretty and all about creativity. So when I saw this on the Martha Stewart site I knew I just had to share share share! These simple favors/party decorations/center pieces are easy to make and require just a few things. You will need acetate cylinders, tissue paper, and ribbon. Don't forget the candy by the way to fill the insides of the tube! To make just follow these simple easy instructions found here. These would look great with many of them grouped off together in may colors. I can imagine them on a tiered cake stand as a center piece. These would also look nice with tissue paper pom pom decorations that I blogged about awhile ago here. Pair them together for a festive look.

Blythe Dolls....My NEW Love!

You guys all know how much I love whimsical things. I recently stumbled upon a collector's doll that adults seem to be going crazy over. It is called Blythe and apparently it has been around for AGES! I must admit I fell in love immediately with them....with their big heads and eyes on these little tiny bodies, amazing wardrobe, bright hair and so forth. Apparently the craze extends to customizing them with different color eye chips you can change to give a different look, like for example bright pink or purple eyes! People buy customized hair style wigs in every color under the sun for these things too! This doll has the BEST wardrobe I've ever seen on any doll! Imagine a pink fur coat and punk rock boots?! Just check Ebay to see the selection. So as you can tell with this much research into a doll, I HAD to find out the price so I could purchase one to play with, right? Well I did and they seem to start and go for $150!!!! Sniff sniff! I guess I can stop holding my breath waiting for one now!

Watermelon Popsicles and Ice Cubes

Now that summer vacation is just around the corner, the kiddies will most likely spend most of their time outside riding bikes, swimming, running around etc. One thing is for sure with the summer heat beating down their backs....they will be hungry and thirsty for something cold and refreshing. Nothing says refreshing like popsicles! However all that sugar with little to no health benefits has some people shying away from giving too much to their kids. So why not try to make your own watermelon fruit popsicles at home? They are simple to make, look great, and taste even better! Here is what you need to get you started;
Chunks of fresh fruit - try grapes, strawberries, or kiwi fruit

Puree watermelon and pour into Popsicle molds. Drop in chunks of fresh fruit, insert caps and place in freezer. Serve when frozen.
You can also puree your seedless watermelons and pour into ice trays. Drop in a pretty cube into your juice or seltzer for a refreshing summer time drink. Enjoy!

Tranparent Overlay Embellishments

I've been adding more things to my Etsy shop lately. One of the things I noticed that were hot in the scrapbook industry is transparent overlays. However they usually come in large 12x12 size sheets and for some reason I always feel bad cutting up a whole sheet when I just need a small portion. I always feel like I should be using the "whole" thing for a layout, not just bits and pieces. I ended up designing these "little" transparent overlay embellishments for your scrapbook layout or a greeting card. Now I don't feel guilty using them! I just love the color of these. Aside from the pink and yellow, the blue, green, and red are a transparent color! These are sure to cheer you up and add fun to your next paper project!

Old fashioned candy never looked so good! Rock candy or swizzle sticks as some call it have been around since the crack of dawn. Not only is rock candy yummy tp eat and fun to look at with all its beautiful rainbows of color but it can also double as an interesting science project in the art of crystalization. But honestly are we really interested in that right now? No I didn't think so! With its wide pallette of colors you can customize this candy to go with any party decor. Of course you can buy it in bulk but why not have some fun and make it at home intead? There are MANY rock candy recipes online but the one that caught my attention was the "sugar free" recipe...well almost sugar free!

You can find them here. Ummm imagine mango or watermelon flavor rock candies? Oh the fun you can have!

Water It or Vase It!...DIY Vase.

Some things are so simple and nice looking that when you see it you slap yourself in the forehead and say "now why didn't I think of that!?" This is definately one of those moments. These creative yet simple vases are constructed of two materials you can find at any hardware store, pvc pipes and a clamp. The first picture displaying the blue see through pvc pipes I believe are those simple rubber water pipes you might find under your sinks. Now I'm not suggesting you take those out!...its better you go to the hardware store for that. This craft looks simple I have to explain?!!! Well I guess I should anyways! Just take the rubber pipes and cut to different lengths. Cut the ends on a diagonal for a cooler look. Bunch them up together bringing either ends of all the pipes together. Clamp in the middle and've got yourself a cool vase!

My Gift to Myself!!!!

You know how something on first sight can just take your breath away and make you say "Oh I love THAT!"? Then you just keep staring at it for days and tell yourself you NEED that or just can't live without it? Then you try to justify WHY you need that?! Then finally you purchase it telling yourself that its really not that much! Well this was exactly my reaction when I was browsing around on Etsy and accidently came across this acrylic laser cut necklace called "Whatever Lola Wants", and boy was I glad! It really was not a whole lot to spend on something this beautiful and unique. It was rather quite reasonable at $22.00 for a piece of neck art! So I have been anxiously awaiting its arrival and today I opened up my mailbox to see the big old box sitting there screaming at me...."open me, open me!" I rushed my package home, laid it down gently on the table and than just tore it open. There in front of me was my gift to myself for being a good girl! We all need to gift ourselves ever once in awhile don't we? Anyhow I took it out and the first thing I noticed was its craftsmanship. I can't believe someone made this! I would have paid double the price for it! The only problem I do have with it is now I need to go find the right top to wear it with! I think a cute little ruffled top might do the trick....think I need to gift myself AGAIN for not spending too much money the first time! If you've been a good girl and think you need to reward yourself than make your way over here to Untamed Menagerie's shop on Etsy. I promise you won't be disappointed!

Snowman Cookies

Winter time brings so many great memories to mind...playing in the snow with my brother and snowball fights followed by a hot cup of cocoa. These little things stick out in my mind now that I'm an adult. I want to create new special memories that my daughter will cherish as she grows up. She loves to bake (or help with baking) so I promised myself I would spend one day a week doing this special activity with just her. She also has a creative artsy streak (ummm I wonder where that comes from?!) so I thought making these winter snowman cookies would be perfect! Plus I could not resist the lovely colors of the "disco dust" in the little pots used on the scarves of the snowmen! I just love color! If you want to create your own special memories making these cute winter themed cookies than click here....and as usual, have a crafty day!
