Canada Cups — Going Bralettes

When I first met Linda Crawford of Uplift Custom Bras during our First Annual Canada Cups tour, I took to her immediately. She is a fellow aristocat of Crazy Catladyship. Linda practises her bra-craft in Burlington, Ontario. And you know what? I’m thrilled to kitty bits to have her guest posting on my blog today. […]

UFO Sightings

“Out of sight; out of mind.” … Hardly! My UFOs (Unfinished Objects) have been out of sight, but certainly not out of mind. At least not until I get rid of them somehow. That reminds me of some trivia I have stored in the back of my mental cave. There’s a little thing called the Zeigarnik […]

Canada 150 — Ooh-La-La: Winner

Canada Cups Giveaway 2016

We’re finally at the end of our official Canada Cups tour, but we’re not quite finished yet. We have some exciting prizes to give away — 10 of them, in fact. But before I let you loose with the entries, how about a round of applause for our stupendous bloggers and indulgent sponsors who made this […]

Canada Cups — Craftsy Corset Classes

Hey! Come on into my boudoir for a moment. We have to talk about something very intimate. Remember when my friend Gem, the burlesque dancer, posted on Facebook that she just finished making 2 corsets? And I thought she couldn’t have made them from scratch; she probably just added some feathers and bows to personalize it. […]

Canada Cups — Day 3 Itinerary

Happy Hump Day!! And in the spirit of the day, plus the theme of the tour, let’s all sing a rousing chorus of “My Humps” (Black Eyed Peas): My humps, my humps, my lovely lady lumps. My humps, my humps… I’m not sure this song has any more lyrics, so let’s call it done, shall we? […]

Canada Cups — Day 2 Itinerary & Craftsy Giveaway

Tuesday, that day of the week between Monday Blues and Hump Day. At least we have fun stuff to get your through it. Let’s go tripping across Canada with the Fairy Bra Mother and her gang of step-children. Here is where you will find us today. ♥ Tuesday, September 13 Lisa fits right in as a new […]

Canada Cups Launch & Craftsy Giveaway

It’s on! Oh yes, 13 of us took flight this morning to bounce our way back and forth across Canada in our skivvies. Right off the runway, we have a post from our very own Fairy Bra Mother, without whom none of us would be inclined to expose ourselves this way. But fairies exist and […]

DIY-Crush Link Party, Week 44

Oh come on! Another week gone by and I still can’t account for what I’ve done with any of it. Here we are back at Thursday, and ready for the next DIY Crush link party. My tester skirt isn’t done, the messenger bag isn’t done, the patchwork cross-body wallet isn’t done, the curtains for my […]

DIY-Crush Link Party, Week 43

In case you’re wondering what’s going on with all the DIY link parties and none of my usual posts, I’m afraid you must continue to wonder. Co-hosting the weekly link up is not the only pot on my stove, iron in my fire, potato on my plate, etc. I’ve got a crater full of projects […]

Do It Yourself Party of the Week — 41

It’s Thursday evening so it must be time for the DIY Crush party. Things were a little touch-and-go about an hour ago when I realized that I still hadn’t written this post and scheduled like I intended to do last night. I was busy packing and removing cats from my suitcase. I arrived at my […]

Do It Yourself Day

Did I ever tell you about my personal resolve to never make myself responsible for keeping a schedule? Contrary to myself, I’ve gone and joined Domenica and Denise from DIY Crush as one of the permanent co-hosts. That means I post weekly, even if you don’t read it. Well, read it, ok? Every Thursday, except if […]

Do It Yourself Inspiration

Here we go again! I had the best of intentions to write up a nice little pictorial on how to pimp out your ironing board and post it so I could join the DIY Crush link party this week. I got all the pictures I could possibly need. I have all the instructions in my […]

Try Something New for May

Is it nearly the end of May already? Where does the time go?? If it weren’t for the smell of lilacs and fresh green grass, I’d swear it were still February. And you don’t want me to start swearing. Anyway, the Try Something New Every Month (TSNEM) theme for May was hand sewing. It’s a […]

Crushing

Holy Cannoli! Because I didn’t have enough good stuff on my plate, I had to volunteer to host* this week’s DIY craft party of total awesomeness. It’s week #34 and we need to top all the yumminess we dished up during week #33. If you missed it, you can take a trip back in time to […]

Earth Day Denim Upcycle — Part I

It’s earth week! This is the second day of an earth-friendly blog hop. (See the other hop stops at the end of this post.) And we’re paying homage to Mother Earth while we renew our individual efforts to save our home. Mars is not a suitable habitat for humans yet so forget that as an […]

Trying Something (Sorta) New-ish — February

I took on this challenge at the start of the year and didn’t quite get around to the English Paper Piecing I planned to learn for January. I just wasn’t motivated enough to make a bunch of hexies, because what will I do with hexies? And I spent most of the month in my doctor’s office […]
