Thirsty Thursday: Smarmy Clothes

Staying in line with my vision of blogging more regularly, Thursdays have been reserved for showcasing the talents of other bloggers, crafters, DIYers, artisans, etc. And being the scattered-brained scanner that I am, I have a tendency to hop from one crafting project to another and gain much inspiration from other creative beings — hence, “thirsty”.

Today while Binging “how to paint fabric” (I want to paint my son some Spider-man inspired, spiderweb motif curtains (project pending)) I clicked on page 34 of the search results and stumbled upon the most spectacular of crafting sites called What the Craft. Then somehow I drifted further down the rabbit hole that is crafting awesomeness and ended up at the What the Craft blogger’s shop titled Smarmy Clothes.

Oh. MY. GOSH! Let’s just say if you’re into all things girly, gothic, circus, punk, trendy, and damn near unlabelble (yes, I just made up a word. Daydream Mom defines ‘unlabelble’ as anything that is different, unique, and somewhat uncatergorizable…. is that even a word?) then you’ll TOTALLY dig Smarmy Clothes.

Lex is the owner/creator/seamstress.

And how does she find the energy or time to push out the hundreds of items she has for sale? I have no clue. Check out Lex’s Etsy shop and FB page to see why I’ve fallen in absolute love.

Now if only she made plus sizes!

Mindful Mondays: Giving Thanks to My Colleagues

Here on Daydream Mom I want to start having a more regular, expected blogging ‘schedule’. The thought behind this is that I’ll always have content to blog about and readers will sorta know what to expect. I also have a tendency to be a bit scattered. Or what some would call a Scanner. So to counteract the incessant urge to be all over the place I need structure. My Capricorn Moon thrives off it.

So, yesterday was Sinful Sundays — a day for confessing a ‘sin’. I’m not religious. Nor do I attend church or mosque or synagogue. Therefore, what is ‘sin’? Regardless, I still like the idea of going to confession. For holding myself accountable. Or simply just to be candid.

My blog is my confessional.

Today being Monday, I wanted to give thanks for something in my life I am grateful for. Not just because it’s November and EVERYONE is giving thanks, but because I genuinely am grateful.

Sinful Sundays: I Want My 15 Minutes of DIY/Crafting Fame

It’s Sunday.  And what are Sunday’s an opportune time for? Confessing ‘sins’:

I’m notoriously inconsistent when it comes to posting on my blogs. Over the past 6 years I’ve had 5 blogs and I’ve unfortunately never really stuck with any of them. But things feel/are different with this one (Daydream Mom). I have finally found my niche and passion. I’ve also finally found something to blog about that MANY people can relate to or have ongoing interest in. (Thank You Pinterest!)

My other blogs were a bit more in the early childhood education or occult realms. Although I’M passionate about those subjects it doesn’t seem everyone else out there is.

Basically, I’m having a blast with this new blog. It’s in its infancy still but it’s doing really great and I’m hoping that in the next couple months things will really pick up. Especially since one of my projects was featured at Beckie Farrant’s Roadside Rescue site!!

Repurposed Starbucks Caddy {Tutorial}

I am the frugal Queen. But I have nice taste. (Or at least I think I do). However, sometimes those standards are not reflected in my buying style because I simply don’t have the funds. I’m sure many of you would agree you’re in a similar predicament — especially if you’re a single, co-parenting parent.

Create Easy, Yet Cool, Art w/ Your Tot

As a mother to a 23 month old boy AND a teacher to a classroom of 12-24 month olds, I can 100% say that I have my moments when I rather forego the creative art projects! But I’m an artist at heart (amongst many other things) and just can’t stand to live a day without creating something….

When my little boy was just 8 months old I’d paint with him. I’d stick his foot in some paint and make footprints, or let him have at it with some crayons or markers.
