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 »

  • Meet Becci who built an Instagram community of over 12,000 in less than a year!

  • Turn your old electronics into earrings without tools

    What do you do with your old electronics? I have a TON lying around but taps, old washing machines and hard drives all have parts that can be turned into jewelry!

  • How to make structural earrings without metalwork

    I was surfing Pinterest when I saw these amazing silver geometric earrings by Ute Deker. Unfortunately they were sculpted from silver, which is something I don’t do much. And much as I like supporting designer makers, they were several hundred quid, which is a little beyond my budget at the moment. So I saved the… Read more »

  • Glastonbury style arm cuff DIY

    How do you define style? I’ve always thought that true style is timeless, so when I started this blog, I didn’t pay too much attention to trends and what’s fashionable. (Even today, i often post DIYs for designer pieces from a few years ago.) However, I have noticed that “current” posts, such as this yarn wall art &… Read more »
