Upcycle Old T-shirts into Jewelry:
Guest Post from HEARTing Handmade

Happy Monday, sweets! Today I have a super fun tutorial for you, guest posted by Maša, a lovely Slovenian blogger from HEARTing Handmade.

If you are new to HEATing Handmade, check out Maša’s weekly roundup of giveaways (she’s done all the hard work of finding crazy cool giveaways for you so you could enter something everyday!), discover her literature love and book giveaways, and learn her personal journey and the reason why I find her the bravest woman I’ve ever met (although not in person yet!).

So… enjoy the upcycle tutorial :)

Hi there! I’m Maša from HEARTing Handmade and I’m very excited to be a guest of Emi’s today! :)

I have a passion for repurposing old things that usually end up in the dumpster at the end of their life. I found two shirts I used to really enjoy wearing, but have become too worn out to be used anymore. So I made yarn from them which I will use for making fashion accessories. Making yarn from old clothes is the simplest thing in the world! I’ll also show you how to make a really simple choker, even if you have never made jewelry in your life (no equipment needed). So the good news is that you already have everything you need for this project!

Craft Tutorial: Feather Hoop Earrings

Hello sweets! We are officially having no summer here in UK (the number of times I wore T-shirt/no sleeves during June and July: 5), but that doesn’t stop me from feeling the summer vibe – yet. So, as my moral support, I created this feather hoop earrings that’ll make me brave enough to go out in summer dress (with goose bumps, of course) and say peace :) Read More

Nail Art: OPI NYC Ballet Collection Swatch

NYC Ballet Collection

Hello lovelies! I usually don’t do nail polish swatches here in Small Good Things, but today I have to share you my latest addiction – because I finally discovered ‘it’ white nail (Yee-ha!!!!).

In my last week’s glitter flowers nail art post, I asked if you guys knew any white polishes that are non-squeaky clean white, and are creamy but not too thick. Then a magical thing happened – beyond brilliant Tumblr blog, True Blue Me & You, kindly asked her readers if they knew any manis that fit my demanding (ah-ha) request in this post.

One of her readers suggested ‘Crème Fraiche’ by OPI, and oh my, it sounded perfect! I couldn’t, however, find any UK stores that sell it (big sigh). My heart didn’t get deflated for too long, because after an hour’s vigorous search on the net, I found these: Read More
