How to Take in the Waist on a Pair of Blue Jeans |

If your waist is quite a bit smaller than your hips, you may suffer from “gaposis” when you buy jeans to fit your hips. This leaves plenty of room in the waistband, creating a clear view of, ahem, you know, your unmentionables. Well, there is a fix for your jeans to help keep those unmentionables unmentionable.

Shirt Aprons & To Pin or Not to Pin

Back in September... while on a retreat... my friend Lori Holt talked me into getting onto "Pinterest". (Dangerous!) For those of you that are not familiar with it... it is a place where you can organize and share all the beautiful things that you find on the web by pinning them onto boards that you create. It's also a place where you can browse pinboards created by others. So FUN!!! Well... for some of you that would be no problem... but for me it has become quite an addiction! The question…

DIY Fabric Chapstick Holder

Let's talk chapstick today. Are your lips addicted? Mine are. Like, I canNOT fall asleep without chapstick on. Those dry little lips of mine bug me. And licking them doesn't help. In fact, that makes them worse. And I don't like working out with dry lips either. In fact, I use chapstick many times throughout the day. And I know, I know.....the more I use it, the more dependent I am. It's okay, I know there are others out there like me, also helping to support the chapstick makers of the…

Old favorite to new favorite...

I bet most of us have had a pair of jeans that seemed super special and then got worn and worn and worn out. ( Anyone else remember when Zena jeans were THE jeans to own? ) And of course you don't throw them away, you reinvent. This pair of jeans became bracelets as well as this apron.

The waistband will serve…
