Well, it has been for me and I hope it's the same for you as well cos most importantly we should be thankful cos we are alive right? right :-) Now as you may now know, i'm currently crushing on Stella Jean, so in my search (more like stalking), I happened to find these bangles of hers amongst other 'treasures' and decided to DIY them.

Diy Tutorial - How To Make a Fabric Covered Button

If you are like me and need loads of fabric buttons to work pieces like bib neck pieces or other embellishments, but then own scores of unused fabric buttons which you would rather have a different fabric on, or then again if you haven't got a machine to create those buttons, this tutorial is for you. I'll be using both instances:
1. an 'unwanted' fabric button
2. a metal button to be converted into a fabric button.

FALLen Leaves - Wall Hanging

This DIY project was created years ago, 2007 to be precise. I was actually inspired by fallen autumn leaves and decided to crochet a wall hanging with the 'leaves' in mind - only I couldn't crochet leaves and created flowers instead :-) It applies right? lol!

'Ankaracstar' - Celeb inspired Denim/Ankara vest

Bend, Mend, or Spend???
So I have been seeing celebs such as Tiwa savage and Davido rocking denim and Ankara and being so sew naija at heart, I decided to do some justice to my Miss Selfridge denim vest. I actually have never worn the vest so it was up for the debate – ‘Bend (toss), Mend (reconstruct/fix), or Spend (splurge on a new one)?’. At this point, you should know what my choice was J

DIY - Wire Ring

Hello all you beautiful people! I sure missed you and hope the feeling is mutual J the lack of posts were due to techie issues with my laptop as it decided to embrace the silly season for no just reason.  Anyways, now that ‘normalcy’ has returned let’s get to it – I have a quick DIY I whipped up yesterday thanks to my lovely friend Kizzy who came visiting from Abuja over the weekend. She came over to my place sporting a really cool ring and I knew I had to DIY It!
Here’s kizzy’s ring on her finger of course J
