The Freebie Jubilee//Just about the Cutest Social Media Icon Set!

         time,buuuuut, you guys will have to do this one for now!
        This is how I started designing all my freebies, one fine day I popped up Mr Google on my
        lappy to see if there were some cute, vintage floral patterns up for grabs and free which  
        didn't exist, at least none that I liked so much that I screamed (in my heart) with joy like an   
                                                          Yup, I'm fussy.
                                And probably a million other adjectives like that. (*wink) 
          Anyway, questions for you guys- Did you like this set, want me to make another one?
                                        Share your preferences, your wish is my command!*
                                                           (*conditions apply)
                         Ahem, anyway..

Pretty Me Up//DIY Chunky Braided Bracelet!

I  know I told you guys in the last post I'll show you all the brilliant ways you can use your very own customized ribbons..right, about that, I have no idea how this DIY just creepily snaked it's way into my afternoon! Anyway, so for today's easy-to-do DIY , we have chunky braided bracelets, out of socks! *Hawwww, yeah, I know, check it out*

First things first, 
My recommendations:
-Choose a dark colored ol' sock you've never worn
-or a sock that had suchaaaa crazy pattern that you never wore it n' it somehow found it's way in your home (yeah, those funky patterned socks will do fine as bracelets!)
-or if has to be light colored make sure it's fresh
-Finally, don't use a fuzzy fabric kinda sock (I learnt my lesson)

Like I said, this somehow wormed it's way in this afternoon,so I don't have any pictures of the steps, but here's what you do in layman's terms:
(Oh please, please, pkease don't step away from making this cuz' I didn't take pictures, because I'm sure this project is so easy, you'll get it right from the steps!)

1.Place the sock on a planar surface, along the vertical end of the sock, section it into three parts diagonally,and then cut through, BUT NOT ALL THE WAY THROUGH, good.

2.The rim of the sock where it goes around the ankles, you wanna keep that portion safe n' sound (so from the top of the sock keep up about two cm uncut.)

3.Braid the three sections you cut.

4.After braiding all the way to the end, gather all the three strips and use scotch tape to cluster them together.

5.Take the start (uncut portion of the sock and loop it over the clustered (taped) end.Use scotch tape again to fix the start n' end together)

6.Use a ribbon, in a bright color (or actually one that co-ordinates with the sock's color) and wind it over the taped part.

7.Finish off by tying the end of the ribbon in a mini bow.

Becuz' you guys know I'm sorta bananas for florals, I used some sharpies again to deck up the plain white thing,the thinner the fabric of your sock and the brighter and cuter the color, the prettier the bracelet according to me :)

^the finished product :)
^The side :) :)
^the back :) :) :)

So there you have it cupcakes, upcycling socks, maybe not the most terrific thing to do, but crazy anyway ;)

Do you like making weird transformations like me?

 Loved these? Don't forget to pin, tweet and stumble! 

Million jabillion hugs,

The Decorista Chronicles- Hack your ribbons into gorgeousness!

So today class, we shall learn to create our own custom-designed ribbons!
Uh-oh, of course,Aloha!
Dudettes, I had a really hectic week this time, so that meant I couldn't do a post in all this while which by the way is basically why I have something very fun and simple for you today, but wait, wait, ask the end result!
Freakin' pretty! Take a look yourself!

And I tell you what, with this tutorial I give you a bonus freebie, but you have to wait for that till the end, buhahahaha!

Ahem, anyway,
as I was saying, on those days when old Mr. Washi Tape is finished, or maybe suddenly it's too expensive, apart from those cute designs which are hard to do on ribbons, you can actually create endless designs in practically minutes on ribbons that are already probably dangling somewhere in your pretty lil' nest or (congratulations!) if they are neatly arranged in your nook prolly' waiting to smothered in loveliness!

Ima show you crafters how to do a few designs right now, and gonna top on a few other designs you could try yourself, so here goes, we're doing polkas, dye-effect stripes, floral n' herringbone!

The Decorista Chronicles // Super- Pretty Storage Solutions You Can't Miss Trying Out!


I get you, I get you, the clutter's piling up , no wait, overflowing you say? Don't worry your pretty little mind, I've got just the the thing for you!

There used to be a warzone underneath, above, to the left, to the right (you get the gist) my craft corner, well, it's not really a corner, otherwise it would've been worse.

Then I was rescued, by myself.

This post is really gonna speak out to you. Why? Because I'm not gonna show you the two solutions I did, I'm gonna give you alternatives.
I think you guys deserve alternatives, cuz' not everyone has the same stuff handy, some of you hoard (wink) on other things, so I'm gonna give you a bunch of other clutter busters that'll rock, bigtime.
Even if you don't hoard, if you buy this stuff, it's gonna come cheap, ready?

I've tried my hand first time at making jewelry and here's the result!

So you get what a less-than-amateur like me would start with, simple hoops and beads! Since I'm not a jewelry makin' maniac, I took the simplest route and if you have never tried makin' jewelry (like dumb ol' me), this may just get you started!
