How to make fake embroidered patches

Have you ever bought a pair of shoes that you don’t wear? My childhood trauma of never being able to buy shoes back home- I had huge feet that they didn’t stock sizes for (and had to shop overseas)- is making me overcompensate by being a total shoe fiend now. 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 »

Round-up: Best jewellery dish DIYs

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Begging notice: I only have 2 followers at the moment, so any new ones would be loved to death! Recently, I re-discovered my cheese obsession. Not the best choice when trying to lose weight. However, I did read that eating cheese and butter actually HELPS weight loss because they’re so… 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 »

  • Meet Stacie Madden, who started independent community sewing festival in Brighton

    Working as a freelancer can be pretty isolating- you don’t have colleagues to hang out with, after work drinks… but the best part of being a crafter is the amazing and supportive creative community. About a year ago, I rolled up to my first Brighton Etsy event- the Brighton Etsy Craft Party (which was the… Read more »

  • How to turn ribbon into statement earrings

    Ribbons are so versatile! You can upcycle them from shopping bags into designer pieces- here I show you how to recreate Lanvin earrings– a festival arm cuff, and even no sew clutches! After all those DIYs, I still had some leftover, so I thought, why not make earrings?!   What you need 2 printed ribbons… Read more »

    One of the purposes of my blog is not just to share craft and DIY tutorials to (hopefully) inspire people to make their own creations, but also to review craft fairs & events so that people who like handmade know which are the ones worth going to and people who sell handmade have more information… Read more »

  • NuSkin Epoch Glacial Marine Mask Review (£25.28)

    I’m going to admit right off that I was initially a bit hesitant to use this mask. I had previously recommended NuSkin to one of my best friends, Tammy, who is in her 40s but still looks like she is in her 20s (when we go out, there are always guys in their 20s hitting… Read more »

  • How to make a 3D rhinestone charm using an old name tag

    I’ve made at least 1000 pieces of jewelry but I still get tripped up by mistakes. There’s nothing more annoying that when you’ve spent 30 minutes on 1 piece only to realise that you forgot to factor in something and the piece no longer functions. The 1 mistake I keep getting tripped up by is… Read more »

  • Links of London bracelet DIY

    Links of London is 1 brand I’ve never bought anything from- not because I don’t like their designs- I’d hardly be DIYing their work if I didn’t! 😛 But more because I always feel like I can make what they sell myself, customise it to my exact specifications and save 100s of quid! Luckily, I’m… Read more »

  • Hermes inspired eye statement necklace DIY

    I was on my favourite Social Media platform (Pinterest) when I saw a Hermes statement necklace that immediately caught my eye. With a large round stone in the middle of gold chain, it looked like a huge eye, a motif we’ve been seeing all over the place, such as my leftover yarn eye wall art… Read more »

  • Faux vintage earrings using only rope DIY

    Earlier in the year, I did a collaborative DIY with a group of very nice bloggers in which we all upcycled something we found in a vintage store. My thrift store buy was a pair of clip on earrings, but even though it was 2nd hand, it wasn’t really cheap- you can spend less at… Read more »
