Control Freak - Joke of the Day

Pinterest Miss - Phone Case

I love How the Case Turned Out
There Is Only One Problem
And It's a Major One...

Over the years I have tried a lot of DIY projects I found on Pinterest and to date, this is still the one that hurts the most.  I love to bling things up to the nines and this one turned out to be so easy and really a favorite.  It made me happy all the time.  I was so proud of it.  I also blogged about all the benefits of making your own jeweled items including a cell phone case. It was quite the conversation piece. Ladies wanted to know where they could buy them and ultimately how to make them. They are so cheap and easy to make, I understood why so many people were interested in joining the b-dazzle world for themselves. But then, I realized a downside when it came to the amazing world of jewels and cell phones. It's such a large downside that I have given up on the jewels all together when it comes to my phone.  Here is why...

The precious little crystals cause interference with the cell phone signal and ultimately make your phone conversations hard to hear or dropped all together.  So it comes with very large regret on my part that I have to announce this DIY project as a major bust.  Sorry one and all for this horrible announcement.

Sofa Makeover Update

Leather Sofa looks like new again!


I originally posted this DIY project on my blog 2 1/2 years ago. I took an old sofa that was destined for a junk pile and created my favorite DIY project ever.

Here is the link to the instructions of how to transpose a leather sectional to look like new:

Now 3 years later, my sofa is in need of a 10 minute update to get it back to par.



As you can see, there is some wear and tear.  I am happy to report, the stain never came off on clothing.  It does take a few days to completely dry.  Just remember, it is cheap, fast, and easy, but you do need a week of drying time.  Stain dries slowly when it is applied to leather.  After it is completely dried, it does not come off on clothing at all!


On the left is what it looks like after a little stain is rubbed on. Don't forget to wear gloves. Stain does not come off your skin easily.  I did have to buy a new can since my old one was in the garage and dried out.  A small can goes a long way.  It cost $5.60 at Walmart.

This time I didn't have to do all over the sofa.  I just touched up the areas that had a lot of wear.

It took less than 10 minutes.

I still love it!
