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 byย 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 ๐Ÿ˜› 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.

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 »

  • Runway inspired rhinestone tassel ring

    So the other day I shared a DIY tutorial which was inspired by Oscar de La Renta (you can see it here) on 1 of my Facebook groups and got this comment “why copy?” To be honest, I was rather taken aback by the comment as just written like that, it came across as rather… Read more »

  • Fabric yarn tinsel trim cum necklace

    When I was up in Edinburgh for the Makers & Friends pop-up, it was a (fun!) challenge to decorate a store located in a city which I was visiting (no access to most of my tools and materials). One thing I did have was fabric yarn, and since it was Christmas, I started using it… Read more »

  • Oscar de la Renta faux pearl earring DIY

    I love pearls but they can be hard to wear. If you don’t look super youthful, they can make you look like your Grandmother! (I have a short neck, and square face, so the classic pearl necklace is a big NO for me!) However, they are a great way to dress up your look- I… Read more »

  • No tools, leftover yarn necklace DIY

    I have a confession. I wasn’t sure whether or not this DIY was good enough to share, so I left it on the back burner for a couple of months. If you’re a blogger yourself, how often do you scrap projects? I think what a lot of people don’t realise isย how much work is behind… Read more »

  • How to make your own no sew boho bag

    Do you dress the way you feel? All my life, I’d always been rather bohemian. My childhood was filled with lace flared pants, embroidered knapsacks, fringe boots… you name it!

  • Where to buy craft supplies in Norwich

    I’ve lived in the UK 7 years, and visited over 10 times, but somehow never visited Norfolk. When I saw how charming it looked (on Instagram, where else?!), of course I had to visit and, as crafter, of course I had to check out what it has to offer in terms of Arts & Crafts!… Read more »
