You’re Da Bomb Favors

Leave a comment


So I’m a dumbass and forgot to take a picture of my final product but this is what inspired me to make my You’re Da Bomb favors for all of our new pledges for Initiation.

We have this tradition where we set out little goodie bags and throughout our I-Week, the older members put all sorts of cute little goodies in there for all of the girls. It ranges from candy to notes to mixed-tape style cd’s, you name it. Here’s what I did:

I guess I’m not the only dumbass because I just noticed that the ones I was inspired by isn’t even grammatically correct. (Your the bomb) haha.

Belated Thanksgiving Post

2 Comments


My Thanksgiving break couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m in that point of the semester where I’m just about checked out of school. It seems almost everyone I’ve talked to is in that same boat, which is comforting (knowing I’m not alone) but also kindof bad. I was so excited to see my family and do some Black Friday shopping. My dad and sisters surprised me by building me a room! When I went off to college my youngest sisters used to share a room but one of them took my old room, so when I’d come home for breaks I was sleeping on the couch and it sucked. Not gonna lie, I definitely let everyone know how much I hated it. But I never in a million years expected anyone to do anything about it! It’s not completely done, and I’m excited because I always need a project to work on and it has become my winter break project for this year. I’ll for sure have a lot of pictures up.

Here is some random Thanksgiving stuff I came across online and liked. Keep checking back because I’m FINALLY going to post all of the furniture up-cycles I’ve done, and a bunch of awesome gift ideas from our initiation week.

You could have Thanksgiving anytime with this single serving sweet potato!

I have so much to be thankful for 🙂 Especially all of my followers! Thanks for the supportttt.

Giftspiration – Forever Flowers & Accordion Box

Leave a comment


So while my grandpa was in the hospital, my grandma spent so much time going back and forth to the hospital, making sure he was okay. But I suspect that it was almost a break for her considering how much she does for him on a daily basis. I know how much she does for him and for everyone. She loves to take care of people and never expects anything in return. She seriously inspires me so much. So I made her “forever flowers”. They’re made out of tissue paper. I just folded the tissue paper a bunch of times and tied it with wire in the middle and opened up the folds. I tied the extra wire all together and stuck it into a styrofoam chunk from inside the vase of some other fake flowers from my house. I got the pail at Michaels.

I was inspired by this for the Accordion Box which instead of putting a collection of things on each fold, I used it as a card to write a special message.

I didn’t take a picture of the inside of the one I made but you can see the box in the flowers.

Here are some other accordion inspired crafts! :

Glue the envelopes together to make a card with a bunch of pockets. (Via Martha)

Take apart an old book from where you traveled to and make an accordion scrapbook. (Via Martha)

Or cover an old book with a map if you went to more than one place!

Wish I had a tutorial on h0w to do this! It looks so cool.

Enjoy!
