diy: baby celtic knot headband

  Well, it’s fallen to me to be the Maker of Things for my baby that Mandy is Hosting, as Mandy is too miserable tired to make anything. Well, I’d be doing it anyways since, whenever Mandy finds something she wants that looks make-able, she looks at me and says sweetly, “Will you make it for me?” and then bats her snuffaluffagus eyelashes. Mostly I laugh at her and say no, since I’m immune to her eyelashes, but nobody says … Read More

A Change Room of Our Own.

posted in: diy | 1

We’ve been talking about it for almost a year now, needing a change room.  Customers have been using our tea stained bathroom for far too long.  But, as we like to do, we put it off for a bit, and then a few more bits. Then one day, eons after we first had the idea, we decide to just finally do it. 4 days and 5 trips to our local building supply later, we have a fully functioning change room … Read More

Perfect Pairings: Shit Glued to Other Shit and some other things

Its a bit quiet around here today…. Lissy is at home with a bad cold, I’m lonely but happy she kept her plague ridden self at home. Nicely for her though, both rotten children went to school AND her husband was working, so she got the whole house to herself!! For today’s 1st Perfect Pairing, I have chosen my friend Sarah’s favorite crafting; Shit Glued to Other Shit.  She threatens often to bring in shit she wants to glue for … Read More

Nailed It!

I know this is super hard for all of you, our loyal supporters to hear, but Lissy and I are sometimes crap at things.  You gasped right then didn’t you? I heard it, so don’t lie! Anywhoodle, Liss and I tried to be awesome and paint our nails in fun manners and diligently followed the tutorial. For the most part anyways…..  This is what we attempted. Lovely right? Totally adorable, and looks like your nails practically paint themselves no?  No is … Read More

Super Cute Hair Twist + Curls = Awesome

Mandy and I spend a lot of time perusing the net for entertaining things while at work. Maybe too much time actually, sort of. But because of all this time, we sometimes come across awesome things that we probably should be sharing with you all, instead of just laughing our asses off and then forgetting about it. Well, I mean, occasionally we remember to post a link on Facebook, I like to think we’re (eh-hem…Mandy is) getting better at this.I’m … Read More

We are lazy bloggers….

We might be lazy about blogging, but look at us learning new crochet techniques! This is called the Tunisian Crochet, we learned about it here.  Obvs Lissy’s is the better one, because while it’s not like I totally suck at everything, she is just WAY better and faster than me :)  We also improvised on the afghan hook, by wrapping an elastic around the end of a regular crochet hook.  If I was gonna do a big project, I would … Read More

Today is the day Lissy pushes the computer off the desk and spits on it

posted in: diy | 1

As per the title would imply, Lissy is currently in a hate/hate relationship with building our new webpage, www.pollutedpixie.com Its taking up alot of her time and patience but in the long run it will be amazing for us! Me on the other hand, Ive been playing words with friends, and trolling the internet.  I figure that if I can’t be helpful, I can at least sit quietly :) Two of my favorite things, books and plants! Buenos Noches! Mandy
