And the great news keep rolling in. Check out this amazing article that Eide Magazine wrote about us! Our favorite line was “What’s amazing about this store is that even the least crafty person can be inspired to design and create”. We, too, believe our store is for the skilled designer and for the person who doesn’t even know what DIY means – anyone can walk in and walk out with the tools to create something beautiful. Many thanks to the Eide Magazine team for such an awesome feature!
Now that we are officially in holiday season, we can’t help but be consumed by all things shiny and metallic! Metallics were huge in the FW 2012 runway shows, so now we love the idea of taking this trend from our closets and into our home decor!

We have oh-so-many buttons in our store, in an incredible assortment of colors. We wanted to do something fun with them, so we grabbed a handful of brown, orange, and red buttons, and decided to create a lovely DIY fall card. We used the buttons to create the shape of a leaf, and we’re loving the turnout. This card would be perfect for any holiday event, or simply as a way to express your thanks. Check out all of our buttons online, and follow along below to make your own fall leaf card!
4. Keep gluing down the buttons until you’ve filled the entire leaf outline. Add some small buttons for the stem, then you’re all set. Write a message on the inside and share it with a loved one!
If you read our blog frequently, you’ll know that there’s nothing we love more than a good studded DIY. We think it’s appropriate to add studs to just about everything, and apparently Jenni of I Spy DIY agrees with us. Jenni picked up some round hotfix nailheads from our store, and used them to add some edge to a clutch, a keychain, and a pair of flats. Our favorite is the oversized clutch – wouldn’t it be perfect for a night out? Head over to I Spy DIY to see how Jenni created these cool studded items.
