I was looking for a way to make my windows look more festive for the holidays. 

I ran across a DIY on snow flakes made of hot glue and decided to give it a try.

These are Hot Glue, Gold Spray Paint, Red Ribbon

Dollar store wreath

Being DIY obsessed has it's drawbacks. While i get to enjoy crafting I also am a bit more frugal than I would like to admit. 

I looked around at stores for a wreath i liked and just couldn't get passed the prices. I decided to make one of my own only using dollar items.

Bathroom Storage

After moving into my new home i was struggling with bathroom storage space since theres one bathroom and five people in my family. I searched through Pinterest until i found a project that suited me and then made it my own.

These are glass jars from a dollar store with pipe clamps on them stewed into a board.

They have been very handy in keeping my hair ties, bobby pins, and makeup brushes together!

More String Art

So after making my first string art project i was addicted! Naturally i decided on a more difficult place which is Mexico. 

I made this one for my boss.

String Art

So recently i have discovered String Art on Pinterest and immediately fell in love with it. Naturally i couldn't wait to try one out and decided to make a christmas gift using this newfound medium. 

I decided on the state of Kansas because that is the state when the person i am giving the gift to lives. The only downfall was that Kansas is a dull shape but it was nice for my first try!

Let me know what you think!
