How to make fake embroidered patches

Have you ever bought a pair of shoes that you don’t wear?

I have an entire cupboard of… Read more »

Top Tuesday: 10 best statement jewelry

To post or not to post. That is the question. I once read that Pete Cashmore posted up to 6 times a day when he first started Mashable. So obviously I had to 1 up him and post SEVEN times when I rebooted Hapiness, Wherever. Of course, that didn’t last 😛 It dwindled, but posting… Read more »

Top Tuesday: Best Spray Paint DIYs

I think spray paint is an amazing addition to the cupboard of any DIY-er/ crafter. It really gives a piece more oomph and makes it look more upmarket. And it’s so versatile! Unfortunately, it doesn’t make sense to get it if you only have 1 project to make so I thought a list of 3… Read more »

  • Silver tassel earrings DIY

    Do you remember what first got you into making & crafting? Like many kids, I’d done the odd art & craft project here  & there but it wasn’t anything serious.
