I'm a Jax native but have a huge family in SC that I grew up with. So I have an odd taste of urban & nature. I've been crafting since I was little, using anything I could get my hands on. From my granny's old jewelry & clothes to metal scraps from my dad's shop. I'm using this blog just to keep you up to date on my shop & what I'm working on... & maybe post some other randomness like how-to's or things I'm cooking ;) Hope you enjoy & feel free to check out my shop or other profiles on FB & Twitter!

Yoga pants from tshirts!


I love this idea...I have soo many tshirts from college that I don't wear anymore. I don't take credit for creating the pattern, but it's so cute I had to pass it on! My green SWU shirt had the perfect patern on it, they almost look like they were made to be pants instead of a shirt!
I got the patern from Cut Out & Keep's Blog, the instructions are really easy. Just a few cuts & a few seams & you're done! No measureing either, which is a major plus for me! :P
Just click the link above to see the patern & get sewing!!

Found this at the book store the other day... I tried to figure out what it was really about. I'm still not sure after reading the back cover lol.
Let's just hope my mom never reads this ;)

Tie dye purse! I made it from a vintage purse frame I found at a thrift store here in Jax. Took off the old ratty looking strap & replaced it with a cool military looking chain. The orange tie dye has little butterflies made into the pattern!

Here's the link to it on my etsy page! :)

I love this reciepe! I've made it for years now & even though it's not "pasta" its my fav mac n' cheese ever! I found it in my Rachael Ray magazine I bought a few years ago, but here's a link to it on her website: http://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipes/rachael-ray-magazine-recipe-search/dinner-recipes/farro-mac--n--cheese-with-bacon

There is a lot of butter & cheese in it, but it's still kinda healthy with the farrro (aka Spelt) being whole grains & full of vitamins! Plus pair it with a small salad & you have dinner! You can't really go wrong with cheese & bacon :)
