I love how crafting is such a fun outlet for my creative expression. I love it even more when it also serves as an expression of my problem-solving skills!

There was a great deal on Amazon for 75 double point needles (15 5-needle sets in various sizes) for $15, and I jumped on it! Now I’m not a sock knitter, but I do love to knit toys, and I mostly use double-points when making my plushy friends.

But how was I going to store 75 needles in an organized way? I looked at ready made cases, but I wanted something that would definitely house ALL of my double points, and have some more fashion flair than the solid color cases I was mostly coming across.

In the spring of 2009, I “married” my husband three times! First we filed the legal paperwork to be married (it’s a very cut and dry ordeal in S. Korea), then we had a traditional Korean wedding ceremony, and lastly, we had a wedding reception in California. This series is dedicated to the last event, which was truly my DIY masterpiece. Nearly every aspect of our travel-themed wedding was a DIY project that I poured my heart into. I hope you enjoy this series of DIY wedding projects!

Today’s project: Table Centerpieces for a Travel-Themed Wedding

I’ve been to enough weddings to know that guests love taking the centerpieces with them! I’ve taken a centerpiece myself a time or two, and I’ve always found it a bummer when the flowers eventually withered away.

For my own centerpieces, I knew I definitely wanted something that would last–I hated the idea of…

Today’s project: Alstroemeria Wedding Bouquet

There is no sense in attempting DIY wedding flowers if you’re going to try to be a professional florist overnight–I’m certain your sanity will suffer otherwise! And as a DIY crafty bride, there are going to be a million

When I was younger, our family dog was a Chihuahua named Mickey, and we did everything wrong with him! He was an aggressive little terror that we spoiled to no end–and it was little surprise that my friends soon dubbed him, “The Devil’s Spawn.” But he was our little spawn, and our family loved him to pieces, and we all mourned when he finally crossed Rainbow Bridge after an amazing 17.5 year run on Earth.

As an adult, I knew I wanted to raise my own dogs, but I vowed do things differently. I read books, I talked to trainers, I watched countless YouTube videos, and then I set up (and stuck to) ground rules for my pups.
