Sad Pink Cat to Rad Pink TIGER

I found a sad pink cat at the thrift store a few months ago. Carved wooden animals like this one are an export of Indonesia, often sold as souvenirs or in import stores. This cat was around $2 because it was missing the wings. I saw it on the shelf and immediately had the idea to rescue her and make her some felt wings.

When Easter & Ostara Collide!

Like the bad witch that I am, I was out of town for Ostara this year. Although I did celebrate in my own way while on vacation, I didn’t do much at home. This year I’m using Easter to honor the holiday instead.

Here’s how I decorated, incorporating my love for all things witchy and kitschy.

My Vintage Valentine’s Day Mantle

I like to refresh my mantle every few months to keep it interesting. I just can’t stand to look at the same things all the time. I rotate my art as well as the tchotchkes. I started taking down my Kewpie mantle from Christmas in early January, and this Valentine’s Day decor evolved from it.

An eclectic theme of vintage toys, minerals, and plants emerged while I was arranging it. These are all things that I collect so this came together pretty naturally on its own.

Here’s how I pulled it together:

DIY Unicorn Ring Dish

These super cute DIY unicorn ring dishes couldn’t be any easier to make, and the supplies are ridiculously cheap. Create a herd of unicorn ring dishes using a Valentine kit and tiny dishes, both found in Bullseye’s Playground (formerly the Dollar Spot) at Target.

These darling little heart shaped ceramic trinket dishes are only $1 each. The unicorn Valentine kit is $3, and you get 24 figures for $3. I had all of the other supplies in my craft stash, so each dish only cost me $1.13 to make!

Here’s what you’ll need:

DIY Hello Katya Doll with Gingermelon Doll Pattern

Last spring I started sewing again after years away from the machine. Once I completed a few small projects and made a few stuffed animals, my friend asked me if I could make him some Hello Katya dolls.

Here’s how I did it:

Independent Designer Spotlight: Bright Comets Apparel

I’ll admit it: I’m a t-shirt fiend. I love t-shirts and wear them as much as possible. They’re so versatile! I’m drawn to graphic tees that are kind of spooky and esoteric, so when I saw this cool death’s head moth tee, I knew it would fit into my wardrobe just fine.

My Year in Review: Highlights of 2018 in 12 Photos

I took a brief blogging hiatus this last week to unwind from the Christmas festivities, and to take time to reflect on 2018. I went through my Instagram (follow me!) and chose a photo from every month of this past year that highlights something cool that I did, made, or ate.
