I’m not even going to try to come up with excuses as to why I haven’t posted in forever… I’ll just get to the good stuff.
My little sister had some shoes she didn’t really care for anymore, and asked if I could re-cover them for her. I had seen an article in Craft Magazine where they had done this so I knew it could be done.
Here are the shoes in question:
I love to bake and cook, but I’ve never tried to make bread before.. that is, until a few days ago. Unfortunately my first loaf turned out wierd and half unbaked, but I’ve since then redeemed myself. The kind of bread I chose for my first ever to bake is challah. When it came to the egg wash and the topping I changed the recipe slightly. I’ll elaborate on that when I get there though.. for now, I’ll talk you through the journey!
2 teaspoons yeast
1/4 warm water
3 1/2 cups flour sifted
4 eggs (only three go in to the dough, the last is for the egg wash)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
A few days ago I posted about my cassette tape wallet and how it’s held up over the past 10 months, and I promised a tutorial. Well here it is!

I promised I’d make a tutorial for the makeup bag according to how I made it, so here it is!
All the pieces.
About 10 months ago I made a cassette tape wallet after I was inspired by some that I saw online. They were on sale for $43 and the first thought in my mind was, “I can make that for less!” So that’s what I did. Here’s some pictures of it when it was freshly made.
Summer is approaching, so I thought I’d share a project I did a while back which would be used at the pool or beach. Basically it’s a beach bag, but it’s also a towel! It folds up into itself (much like a quillow) but it has handles that make it into a bag. You can throw in your sunscreen, flip flops and other goodies you’d bring to the beach and/or pool.
