DIY Air Dry Clay | Mashia Crafts 
Air Dry Clay or Cold Porcelain is so fun to use - like playdough but it air dries hard. I was a bit dubious of how easy it was to make but all you need is glue, cornstarch, lemon juice and baby oil… and a microwave! You can dye it any colour you want, which means you’re going to save money on buying lots of different colours. Have a look back through the archive for lots of projects you can create with your new DIY dough!

Jeweled White Shirt | A Pair & A Spare
How lovely is this shirt?! This is how you DIY with rhinestones without feeling like a disco ball! The small jewels are created on felt then sewn on to the shirt. If you’re not keen on shirts (I hear ya big busted girls!) this would look equally nice on a plain tee.

All I’ve ever wanted was to work in book publishing.

When I was a little kid, I begged my family for books for holidays. I worked in a library for seven years. I became an English major, writing tutor, and editor of two separate publications on four different occasions. It’s taken me seven years to put myself through college with my BA in English but the progression has been amazing.

And then about two months ago, I heard about the graduate certificate program in editing and publishing offered by the University of Denver. I began crafting my application immediately, letting everything else fall by the wayside.

Lo and behold, Denver accepted me.

There’s a catch though (as I’m sure you’ve gathered); I need to come up with just over $6000 before July.

I’ve financially run myself into the ground attempting to avoid debt over the last seven years, and still managed to owe the federal government a year’s tuition to Kent State, so I don’t even have $6000 let alone $6000 to spend. I’ve been turned down by several banks for a loan as my credit score is less than stellar (due largely to putting myself through school) and my family is in debt as well.

That’s where you come in.

See, there’s this little button that says “donate” on my page. If you click it and type in a few numbers (that are associated with real world meaning), you’ll be helping a fellow human being in the most miniscule way possible.

ANYTHING will help. If you can spare even the cost of several trips to Starbucks, you will literally be bringing me that much closer to achieving my dream.

Please and thank you.
