Hustling: Etsy, Bonnets and Patterns

You may have noticed it. All of a sudden you’re seeing us, daily. A few times a day. Facebook, instagram, etsy. It’s a change from the monthly or bi-yearly you’re used to seeing us, we know. But bitches gotta eat, yo… or rather, we have bills to pay, winter is hard and we had some new ideas about old things. It’s funny how that can happen, isn’t it? You’ve been doing the same thing for a long time and then … Read More

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

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
