Have you heard of Pinterest?

crafts, creative, Design, fun

Pinterest is a pretty cool site where you can post things you love. Set up some “Boards”  with different catagories and start Pinning things to your boards.

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.

Create your account and start your boards!

Here’s the link to my Mackerilla Boards!

Love me some Bunny Slippers!

creative, Design, fun

Ok it’s chilly again and I am in need of some slippers!

I have an obsession for Bunny Slippers. I had a few pairs way back when Target first opened up where I lived back in Michigan. They had these cute thin and simply ones. Not to bulky, just right for doing your house chores. Just kept the toesies warm!

Well they came and went after many pairs and years of being abused and chewed by pets in my past! I have been searching for them ever since.

Well there is a website called Bunnyslippers.com. Not exactly the same as the ol Target styled ones, but cute! A wee bit heavier and thicker. Good for walking around on these cold wood floors here in my house.

If anyone remembers the Target ones back in the 90’s let me know! And if they ever have brought them back.

I need some bunnies on my feet! 😉

Recycle, Upcycle, Repurpose………..

crafts, creative, DIY, sewing

I have gone through my closets and picked out a bunch of things to either give to good will or recycle into other items. Old T-shirts are being cut and silkscreened with my gyms logo on them for gym members to sew them on as patches to represent!

Old wool sweaters into hats and possibly some cuddly toys or neck warmers.

I like this website called . Cool ideas and allot of fun Upcycling inspiration!
