Trash to Treasure: Doll DIYs from around the House (Part 1)

IMG_1573

Grab your glue guns and raid your trash for some fun accessories! I wanted to come up with a few easy DIY projects that don’t require you to have stockpiles of craft supplies at home. I know not everyone has as much on hand as I do and we all need to keep our hands busy during this crazy time. I raided my junk drawer, recycling, and “pre” trash items to see what could be created out of basic household items. Continue reading “Trash to Treasure: Doll DIYs from around the House (Part 1)”

IMG_7897

We all love a bargain, right? But we all want our diorama digs to be great quality too, right? I’m really trying to pair down, but let’s be honest, I’m totally addicted to shopping at the Dollar Tree and I love a good craft challenge. When I saw all of their signs, the ideas just started going off in my head. I wanted to make nice, wood furniture from DT items! Away I went!

DIY Sweet Shop Transformation

IMG_7377

Thank you so much for following along in our transformation journey with the Glitter Girls Sweet Shop (found here on Amazon). I am thrilled with where it ended up and I have had a lot of fun taking photos. This whole project evolved as it went along. I originally only intended to paint the blue trim portions of the exterior and then work with what they already created, but it certainly morphed into a total transformation.

I was so inspired by the last challenge that @thedauhlhouse hosted that I started thinking about doing several design vignettes for $10.00 (all from items purchased at the Dollar Tree). This is the second in the series with a Farmhouse Style. Check it out!

DIY: $10 Dollar Tree Doll Challenge

When our good dollfriend @thedauhlhouse threw out the idea of a Dollar Tree Design Challenge, I jumped at the chance. This is so up my alley or my jam or whatever cliche phrase I could think of. I gathered ALL of my Dollar Tree supplies and carefully sorted and brainstormed with the goods before picking the direction I wanted to go. I had a break through and decided to go all out…Bougee and Extra and I LOVE it! Hope you do too:

Summer Doll Holiday

IMG_1954As many of you know, it takes a lot of time and energy to keep cranking out DIY tutorials  and blog posts when you have a more than full-time job and responsibilities. As much as it makes me happy to craft and share, it is not where I need to be focused right now.  Bruni & I are going to take an unofficial break from regular postings and tutorials for some or all of the Summer. It’s a shame since the blog is really starting to take off, but we are all faced with tough decisions on a regular basis. Many are busy with kids during the Summer, so you may not have time to craft anyway, so it will be a good time for me to limit my posts and not commit every week to a new feature.
