DIY Rhinestone Button Hair Pin & Best Button Sources

Posted by Honor on Thursday, June 27, 2013, In : Accessories 

    I felt like whipping up something pretty and sparkly today and this ridiculously simple an' easy diy definitely did the trick. Totally satisfied my girly itch. Previously I had picked up these super cute rhinestone bow buttons ^^^ intending to use them on another project, but ya know how that goes... it didn't 'go', so these purdy little pretties sat stashed away. All sad and lonely. But ahHA no more, no more! Here are the deets. You will need to pick up a pack of the hair pins with a fla...

DIY Creative Scarf Storage and Organization

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, June 11, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 

Anyone else have a scarf monster in the bottom drawer? 
I do!
....Or did :)
This unruly creature is composed of all your beloved scarves entwined in such a giant tangled mess, you can't even close the door or drawer. Bulging. Annoying. Frustrating. Pain in da rear-o.
So off I go on a pinterest, google, flickr, library book inspiration adventure. There are all sorts of nice ideas out there, but I wasn't just looking for a (very practical, yet very boring) scarf hanger. Ya Know. Those regular ha...

DIY Turban (No Tie) Headband

Posted by Honor on Friday, March 15, 2013, In : Accessories 

Ok, I might lose some of you on this one. 'Wait wha??? A Turban??!?!'  you might be saying right now. Yes a turban... a turban headband that is! Turbans have become quite popular these days with the super fashionistas, I just try to follow in suit with a more do-able 'me' version. Hear me out. Let's look at some eye candy before you write me off with all this crazy turban talk.

DIY Watercolor Bangle

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, In : Accessories 

I knew there was something I could do with all those left over tape rolls!

  Do you do that? Hoard left overs until you can figure out a way to reuse them? I swear about 90% of my office closet is full of those so called 'craft supplies'. Think bags of wine corks, toilet and paper towel tubes, wrapping paper scraps... pretty much everything you would call trash. But I can't do it! I guess it is the hoarder coming out in me. You know we all have a little of that. Hoardism. Hoardalitis. Hoardlue...

Posted by Honor on Monday, January 21, 2013, In : Crafter's Toolbox 

  Here it is, the last part of the diy hair comb series. Quite a journey eh? We went all across the diy board. From wire wrapped crystals to neon nylon cording to feathers. Even though this is the last post of this series, I assure you that hair combs are here to stay... at least on this noggin anyway. Embellished hair combs have always been in my fashion repertoire and always will be. So I thought it would be fun to share two hair combs of the past. One from my bridal shower and the other fr...

DIY Embellished Hair Comb: Parts Five and Six

Posted by Honor on Thursday, January 17, 2013, In : Crafter's Toolbox 

Sick of hair comb ideas yet? No? Good! Cuz here are two more beauties. Both equally simple and fab. If you haven't yet, make sure to check out parts one/two and three/four.

A recap on what I am doing here. At the beginning of the new year I was a bit bogged down reminiscing about sugar plums and faux snow frosted ornaments. In other words I was feeling a bit low because the NY signals the end of my favorite time of the year. My creative juices weren't flowing. They were more like syurp.

DIY Kate Spade Scallop Necklace

Posted by Honor on Monday, January 7, 2013, In : Accessories 
    So lately I have had glitter on the brain. Could it be because I was asked to collaborate with a big name on some glitter diys? (YAYYYYYYYY YIPPPPEEEE for me ;) ) Yeah I bet that's it. Details to come soon. Big toothy grin over here.

 But anyway I have been brainstorming up a storm (punny right?!) for this feature diy. Brainstorming is kind of my thing. I love bubble charts and lists. Any scrap piece of paper is subject to my doodles and ideas. But now that my feature diy is complete I tho...

DIY Leather and Studs Necklace

Posted by Honor on Thursday, November 8, 2012, In : Accessories 

Anyone remember Fiona Paxton? I sure do. Miz Paxton is a fabulous, glamorous, tremendous all the 'ous' adjectives you can think of, jewelry designer. Her beaded/chain Sylvie necklaces were all the rage a few years ago.

DIY Faux Fur Scarf (Anthropologie Plush Stole Inspired)

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, In : Accessories 

   Is it chilly by you yet? It was here for a hot minute (I guess for a crisp moment), but now we have this darn Santa Ana that blasts us with 80+ degree weather. Wah wah. I know I shouldn't be complaining about the fantastic weather we have here in southern Cali, but I can't help it. I want my sweaters and scarves and boots and cozy nights watching my husband lay naked in front of the fire on a bear skin rug... just kidding ;) but you get my point.

DIY Simple Ribbon Headband

Posted by Honor on Thursday, November 1, 2012, In : Accessories 
I love scarves and wear them any chance I can. As soon as there is the slightest crisp to the air I am wrapping that sucker around my neck. Here is my dilemma. I have long hair and if I wear a scarf, especially if it is a chunky knit, my hair soon turns into a tangled mess. Right there at the nape of my neck should be call 'rat-ville' for the nest that is created. Ouch!
 So what to do? A sleek little top knot or messy ballerina bun is my go-to. But that can get a little boring, so here is a...

DIY Fur Boot Socks

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, September 11, 2012, In : Clothing 

Finally we are feeling the fall here in southern California.

Yeahhhhhh! Yes! Whoot-whoot! Oh Boooy :)

Feel my enthusiasm? No? Well how about another whoopeeeee!

 We live in an interesting part of San Diego. Far enough away from the coast to avoid the constant marine layer during May-June-July, but close enough to the mountains to see the thunderheads and count the lighting strikes but avoid the torrential downpour. So as I watched the thunderheads yesterday with the kiddos and perused the intran...

DIY Faux Metal Lace Cuff

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, August 21, 2012, In : Accessories 
Ahhh September fashion issue... I do love you and your 'two-inch-thick-ad-section-before-you-even-get-to-the-table-of-contents'.  Lately I am loving the metal lace cuff bracelets that are showing up here and there. One such designer of these cuffs is Aurelie Bidermann. Her wares sell @ Bloomingdales, Barneys and Net-a-porter. All way way wayyyyy out of my price range.

ouch! this bad boy sells for over $1,800.... well... it is dipped in 18 karat gold.

Here is my version. Pretty good for 5 doll ...

   So this DIY covers a couple of bases. First off it is an idea for what you can do with those scraps of wood that are laying about. I have a couple of those, well actually maybe a garage full. My hording tendencies kick in and I can't get rid of them. I just can't!

Anthropologie Inspired Canvas Tote

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, April 18, 2012, In : Accessories 

Well the baby boy is here and I am in dire need of a new diaper/tote bag. Nothing to fancy. I never really loved any of the diaper bags out there on the market these days. Either to bland or to baby. So where do I go for inspiration? To the anthro website of course! I spotted several hand painted leather/canvas versions and instantly fell in love with them... but not the $300 + price tag. I just knew I could create a cheap fix. So here it goes. This took me a few days to put together. Not bec...

How to Make a Pearl Embellished Bangle Bracelet 

This DIY is more of an idea than a tutorial. Just a reminder that you probably already have great accessories laying about the house, you just need to be a bit creative with your household materials.

None of it is very expensive and it usually doesn't hold up to wear and tear very well, so I get rid of the cheap parts and keep the interesting better made compo...

Flat Woven Braid: How to 5 Strand Braid

   Friendship bracelets... remember those? I was driving by an elementary school the other day when all the kids were let out.
