Mystery Boxes

Hey guys! So maybe you’ve been wondering what the heck I’ve been doing, if I’ve totally forgotten about blogging and making DIYs or if I ran away and joined the circus. Well, the answer is no to all of the above (although I’ve always wanted to try tightrope walking). To be totally honest I just really needed some time off to spend with my family and get things into perspective. Now, feeling refreshed and with new found enthusiasm I’m back at it and I hope you’ll be looking forward to my future posts and DIY projects as much as I am.

For part of the process of getting myself back into the swing of things, I spent some time cleaning out my craft supplies and organizing my space. This is good news for you! Now I have some supply boxes for sale! After going through all the extra supplies I have, I’ve made up 5 “mystery” craft boxes for sale for $39 each (including shipping)! Each box has about a $100 worth of brand new unused supplies, this is a really great deal!

To give you an idea of what you’ll find in your box there are lots of fabric markers, dyes, transfers, and more! I don’t want to give away all the surprises in each box, but let’s just say they’re full of color and possibilities.

So here’s a link to get a box of fun! Just think of all the possibilities!

How To Alter Fabric with Color

How to Alter Fabric Feature by Trinkets in Bloom

Happy Tuesday! Today I thought I’d share some of my favorite ways to alter fabric using color with you. There are so many ways to alter fabric each with it’s own unique outcome. I really think it’s amazing how a color change can make a basic fabric look totally unique and fashion forward.
Often we think of tie dye when we think of dying fabric and I think that can turn many people off the idea, but you’d be amazed at the cool colors and patterns you can get with dye, tie dying or otherwise. Dye is also an inexpensive way to alter or upgrade a plain fabric, here are a few of my favorite dying and fabric painting techniques.
