I got a few requests for a tutorial and layout for this, so I went ahead and made one. I changed my main screen a little bit because I think the black box fits better. Also, I needed a little tidbit for the last sentence in there, and my phone DOES randomly freeze for no reason and needs restarting every other day or so lol.

Here is the zip with all the UCCW widgets, wallpapers, and instructions.

Made this foldover clutch this morning from this pattern (well, sort of.. the parts I couldn’t understand I just fudged my way through).

I even put my Mockingjay pin on for the Hunger Games later!!


The Golden Snitch necklace tutorial is up! Head on over to instructables to learn how to make your own!

I’ve also got a few of these for sale up on etsy, if you’d like to buy one. You can do that here.


cyanotype print on handknits and crochet… now that’s an interesting thing to try.

“Most people are familiar with cyanotype without knowing it - in the form of the blue sunprint papers for kids. However, instead of buying pre-treated paper, you can buy the cyanotype sensitizer and use it to treat just about anything. The cyanotype image is formed when fabric that has been coated with the sensitizing solution is exposed to UV light (sunlight). Where the light penetrates to the sensitized surface, a dark blue permanent dye is formed, and where the light is blocked, the fabric stays its original color. So with the use of a negative (like an old black and white photographic negative), you can print any image or artwork. Fortunately, it’s easy to make digital negatives with a computer and inkjet printer.”
