Getting Crafty Up In Here-Fabric Button Earrings

1 Feb


I’ve been looking for a hobby to do, and saw someone wearing these online and decided that I needed some in my life. I started looking at Etsy and decided that they were to expensive to purchase. So I found a nifty little site that told me how to make them and Voila! I have earrings! I was churning these babies out in a matter of 30 minutes.


My little whale and star fish are my favorite. These are a bit on the larger size, about the size of a quarter.  I’m having a fun time making them.  My intention is to get some geek material (Marvel, DC, Star Wars, etc…) and make them.  I also want to venture in making No Sew Scarves. If you have any tips on that let me know!

The basics that you need to make these earrings are:

Fabric Button kit (I found at JoAnn)


Jewelry Glue

Flat earring backing post.

What do you all think? My boyfriend is trying to convince me to try to sell them. I’m not sure how much traffic or who would want them.


October PopSugar Must Have Box

14 Oct


Good Morning guys! Even on my day off I get up early, thou I did sleep in for about 2 hours. I’m waiting for someone else to get up so we can head to Williamsburg for some shopping at the Outlets.  In the mean time I will share what I got in my Popsugar Must Have Box for Oct. This is my second box and I am in love with what I get.  It just went up to $39 but it’s a splurge I can live with.

003Up first is this The Can’t Cook Book, they must know I love cook book and this one is probably one of my favorite ones I own now. I have one called How to Boil Water and it reminds me of it. It’s just the basics oh how to cut items properly and some recipes and I love simple.  I already found a few recipes that I’ll be cooking up in the next few weeks. It retails for $28.


I received a gift card in my last box that I need to use. Unfortunately I can’t use this one because I am plus size and they don’t carry clothing that size.  Which is fine it seems to be a little expensive for my blood. I’ll probably use this as a give away. $20 gift card.


Jane Tran hair clips.  I’m excited to use this it seems that they won’t tear your hair out and they are on the soft side.  Funny enough that I was looking in Rite Aide the other day to  purchase some hair clips, so again they must have knew that I needed some. I couldn’t find the exact ones I received but it seems it retails around $12.  Which is kind of expensive for my blood.


The Wet Hair brush is suppose to be the best detangling brush ever. I checked at Amazon and it had some crazy high reviews.  Which is good, even if thou I have baby fine hair it tangles up like something stupid.  It looks to retail around $14.


I use to be a Julep Maven and I had to stop since I was wracking up way to many nail polishes. I’m excited for this once because I never used their top coat, and the color is a perfect dark burgundy for fall. If your not a Maven the polish is $14, $11.20  if you are. The Top Coat is $18.00 or $14.40.  If you are interested in Julep I would suggest to get your money’s worth is to join and be a Maven and you can search on Google to get your first box free or at a discount.

009 I never knew about the line NYX much until I started getting Ipsy and Birchbox and I’m half and half on the product. I usually end up with a blush that is way to colorful for my liking and an eyeshadow that I can use as a highlighter. But that’s the chance you take when you get these type of things.  I’m pretty happy with what I got, I love me some liquid eyeliner and smokey colors. I will do a review once I use them. Retails for the eyeliner $7 and the shadows $8.


This Gorjana Charity Bali Bead Bracelet came in pink because it’s October and it’s breast cancer awareness month.  I’m a little disappointed because it’s so pretty and I have an abnormally small wrist but I can’t even wear this.  It retails for $45.

011012The Crispery Crispy Cakes Marshmallow Treat. All I can say is OMG I can’t wait to eat this, it’s so soft and fresh feeling.  I’m waiting to share this with someone because I will shamelessly eat it myself and have a sick sugar high. Retails $4.


There you go!  This one was a good one and I’m so excited for it. Now I must get ready for some shopping!!
