Happy New Year everyone! I hope you have all had a wonderful time during the holidays. I really enjoyed myself and relaxed a bit. I'm now ready to share with you my most popular DIY posts for 2018. Let me know which were your favorites.
One of the best parts of living in New York is Christmastime in the city!
All of Manhattan is dressed up in its finery for the holidays. Last year I took you on a walk down Fifth Avenue. But this year I am going to take you on a visit to the spectacular tree at Rockefeller Center.
Is your Christmas decorating done? I thought I had finished a while ago but you know, I am never really done. Always tweaking something or other!
I am always looking to use up whatever I have at home instead of getting rid of them. Case in point clothing that is no longer usable but can be repurposed into something else.
I had a lovely red sweater that was choking me at the neck. But no worries I wasn't about to get rid of it. I simply used it for my Christmas decor. Today I am going to show you how to make easy Christmas stockings from sweaters.
Last week I shared with you my awkward attempts at a Mini Christmas tree done up with ribbon. It wasn't bad but I wanted something better! And this is what today's Christmas craft idea is all about. How to make a dollar store fabric mini Christmas Tree.
Today I'm teaming up with a group of friends for a dollar store edition of a Christmas craft. Be sure to scroll to the end of this post to see what my friends are up to.
I have been admiring all that the internet has to offer, especially at this time of the year when blogland is bursting with Holiday ideas! We can all gawk at all the beautiful home tours and the abundance of talent out there. And I've been noticed a trend with the trees this year. I see lots of metallics and also lots and lots of mini crafty trees. Is that even the right way to say that?
I thought I would give one or two a try and make my own version of a mini tree. This first one is a simple mini Christmas tree with ribbon.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
