We Try It: DIY Laundry Detergent

...sneakotageWe try it!2 Comments


I made my own powdered laundry detergent and it was not a disaster! I recommend it if you are bored — or maybe cheap. Sometimes, the Internet gets into my brain and compels me to attempt A Project. I’m particularly susceptible to “efficient” or charming domestic capers like making my own Irish Soda Bread (such a bad idea!). When I … Read More

How to Make Washcloth Cupcakes

NoëlleLadyguides3 Comments


I have a good friend who is the perfect example of a “girly girl.” Her favorite patterns are floral, she loves the color pink (especially pale pink), and she loves frilly dresses.

I am pretty much exactly like Banksy, minus the artistic vision, the huge fan base and gigantic amount of nerve it takes to do what he does. Okay, I’m really nothing like Banksy, but I really, really love spray painting things. That counts for something, right?

Nothing matched the idea in my head of what I wanted them to wear. This will be a running theme you will notice with me, the impetus for all my DIY- I … Read More

Etsy Christmas Ornaments: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Meghan WilliamsStyleLeave a Comment


Originally, I was trolling Etsy for winter holiday decorations of all kinds, but after wading through thousands upon thousands of offerings (most of them very good, I must add), I realized that whenever I came across something that made me spontaneously giggle or retch or roll my eyes, it was a Christmas tree ornament. So without further ado, the best … Read More
