Monday Chat – Yarn Rope Tutorial, Walmart Tag Along, ASMR plus Plans for Today


Happy Monday everyone!

I as a busy girl yesterday!  First, I made an unexpected trip to Walmart and I took you with me!

Then I uploaded a fun and totally easy DIY video for making yarn rope.  I hope to have a follow up soon as I’ll also be trying this with t-shirt scraps so stay tuned!

Last but not least, I ended my day with an ASMR video featuring the buttons I got from Peanut Gallery Mail.  This is for relaxation and sleep.  If  you are not familiar with ASMR videos, look them up on youtube and you’ll see that this is BIG!

Today I plan on uploading some youtube tips for content creators and I also want to look at clothing for my next upcycled fashions!  I hope I make something I actually like this time! lol

Have a great Monday!

Sunday Chat – Glue is in Stock! ASMR Sewing Lullaby! Quilt Block #9 (my fave so far!)


Happy Sunday!

I just got a call from Sandy Pro that Walmart has my awesome 44¢ Crazy Art glue in stock!  I’ve been waiting for that homemade slime craze to pass so they can keep it in stock.  But I worry they will sell out, so I’m heading there NOW!  I will take you with me so expect a Tag Along tonight.

Other than that, I uploaded a new quilt block for my Quilt Block Party yesterday.  I think #9 is my favorite so far! You can see all the quilt blocks here.

I also uploaded an ASMR Sewing Lullaby video for those of you who love to fall asleep to the sound of a sewing machine.  I got sleepy just recording the video! LOL  I think doing some soft talking at the end of the day is good for me.  Just relaxes me.  You can check out that “white noise” video here.

Now, I really must run!  I hope no one bought all the glue!

Have a great Sunday!

Saturday Chat – Paper Beads for Sandy Pro and Upcycled Fashions Fail


Happy Saturday!

I was a super busy girl all week this week.  And the weather was cold and crappy, so it was the perfect time to just stay in the house and work!

My friend, Sandy Pro, and I are in the midst of a Crossover Collab on youtube.  She painted some paper then handed the paper over to me.  I made beads with that paper and I’m handing the beads back over to her.  Then she will make a necklace with the beads!

You can see Sandy Pro painting the paper here.

You can see me making the paper beads here.

I’ll let you know when she has the necklace video up. This project has been so fun!  If you and a friend both create videos, you should try a crossover collab too!

I also uploaded another Upcycled Fashions video and I hated this one! Seriously, it turned out nothing like I wanted because I didn’t have enough fabric to make the long skirt that I envisioned.  I see by the comments that others think it’s cute, but again, it’s just not the skirt I wanted to make so I consider it a FAIL!  Good thing I get to keep trying! lol

Did you watch me open my Peanut Gallery Mail yesterday?  I got some more nice garments to work with!

Have a great Saturday!
