When in doubt…Just add Glitter!

Published August 27, 2012 by sweetcraftastrophe

Good afternoon!

It’s been quite a while since my last post and I’m excited about blogging again! It’s been a busy summer with graduation from college (woo hoo!) and an internship. Now that it’s all over I can devote some more energy to my blog and to all of you lovelies! So anyways, I went on a crafting frenzy and decided to share my latest creation with you!

It’s simply and easy to make plus it involves glitter so how can you go wrong?!

You will need:

  1. Permanent spray adhesive
  2. Clear acrylic sealer spray
  3. glitter
  4. Wooden box (found mine at target in the dollar section)

Instructions:

  1. Make sure you have a clean area
  2. Spray adhesive on the surface you wish to glitter
  3. Gently shake the glitter on and make sure you coat it evenly
  4. Wait about a minute and spray the acrylic sealer
  5. Let dry for a few hours and voila you have your very own makeup catchall!

Have a sweet day!

The tassel’s worth the hassle!

Published May 9, 2012 by sweetcraftastrophe

So after a longgg hiatus I’m back to blogging! Let’s just say my last semester in college was hectic! Only 1 more class and a presentation left to go until I walk across that stage! It’s a major milestone and I am beyond excited for May 11th!

Most people don’t decorate their caps but since I am a fashion merchandise major it only makes sense to add some flair via Lilly Pulitzer, pearls and a monogram.

Ok so I started off by creating a monogram in Microsoft Word and it was soo easy! I started by downloading the “Monogram KK” font and then used that for my initials. You can download the font for FREE! yay! Download it here! http://www.fonts2u.com/monogram-kk.font 

  1. Lay out all your supplies (x-acto knife or scissors, self adhesive pearls,Lilly Pulitzer print or whatever you like,glue, cardstock and Martha Stewart white glitter)
  2. After creating your monogram go ahead and cut it out with the x-acto or scissors
  3. Then take your monogram and liberally sprinkle the glitter (This is my fav part!)
  4. Let that dry for a few hours
  5. In the meantime, measure the cap’s dimensions and glue the pattern onto cardstock and let dry
  6. MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE A SPACE FOR THE TASSEL!
  7. Once everything has dried glue on the pattern onto the cap and then glue your monogram on as well.
  8. Finally, it’s time to apply the pearls and voila you are done!

 Here’s the finished product!

Have a sweet day!

Glance at Your Goals!

Published January 16, 2012 by sweetcraftastrophe

Morning darlings,

Hope you had an eventful but safe weekend! Since this new year has begun it’s been hard to focus on my goals and I know that I can longer blame winter break! I’m not much of a morning person until I make a pit stop to Starbucks but even before then I have completely forgotten my goals. The past year has flown by so quickly and now its a brand new year, a new page so this year I’m changing things up a bit. Instead of keeping my goals tucked away they will always be visible from now on beside my bed. This way I have no excuses not to be accountable to myself. Another idea for you visual learners like myself is to create a visualization board and yes it may sound a little cheesy but who cares?! You deserve to make the most of this and every year! I used to think they were silly and pointless but it’s actually very helpful to assign pictures to the goals you WILL accomplish.Once you create your own visual board this will help keep you motivated and excited for each day.

Fresh Start

Published January 9, 2012 by sweetcraftastrophe

Good Morning!

So as you can see I have moved my blog to a new site and will be continuing to post from this page permanently. I do realize I have been slacking in keeping up with the posts but I’m back! It’s a brand new year and I know for some you of that means new resolutions and new promises to yourself to make this year a better one. Well I’m not one to set resolutions because I feel like they end up being broken promises. So instead of listing all the things you mightdo this year just start fresh this year! It’s a clean slate and from now on you have the opportunity to make this year count and strive to really make it amazing by doing all the things you love! Make it the year of you! Do whatever makes you happy and surround yourself with great people. Yes I know that sounds so cliche but in all honesty it works! Negative Nellies never make good friends or good company. Finally, always remember to be thankful for everything and everyone in your life. I guess I’m just full of cliche’s this morning but you get the jist.

Get It Done!

Morning dolls!

How was your NYE? Eventful and safe I hope! Today I’m finally back and ready to get into the swing of things again. So in spirit of the new year I am dedicating this post to all things organizational.

Fun fact: every minute invested in planning will save you 10 minutes down the road
Personally, I totally support this because planning your week gives you a clear image of what you have to do and when plus this allows you to squeeze in some time for random activities. It saves so much time and reduces stress which is what we all want!
Here are a few designs to choose from for your weekly planners! Make it fun and color code each activity or person in your household! So find your fav planner and make this year as productive as you can!
