DIY | Tuffing Class at DIYher Workshop

Hello Passionista

DIYher Workshop is a new studio in Atlanta operated by the talented, Bianca Octavia. Bianca has taken her creativity to a new height, she will be hosting DIYher workshops and private crafting parties. The DIYher is a beginners workshop series designed to teach women how to build, craft, cook, and create. The first DIYher workshop was Tuffing 101, Bianca lead the class for a hands on learning experience with creating a fun sized cuffing board. 

I was so excited to finally learn the tuffing technique. I’ve watched many YouTube tutorials of creatives making headboard, office memo boards, and upholstering furniture, but I never felt confident enough to make one. When I saw the flyer for the Tuffing 101 workshop, I knew I had to attend. Bianca is super sweet and a really great instructor. She’s very hands on and creative as a DIYher and workshop instructor. The workshop was only $30 and included all the supplies and wine needed for the project. I’ve never been to a DIY class before so I didn’t have any expectations. Soon as I walked into the studio, I was in awe of the workshop set up, the open space and location. The studio really embodies creativity, making it a relaxing place to learn, create and share. I had so much fun throughout the workshop. We learned how to make cuffing boards step by step, listen to music and talked, took pictures, enjoyed some wine.

I think I’ve found my new favorite “me time” place. I love when I can get lost in a project that allows me to create something amazing but takes my mind off everything else going on in my life for hours. I’ll be attending many more workshops.

DIY Wall Art

Hello Passionista!

One of my favorite YouTuber’s Raven Elysee inspired this DIY project after watching her Decorating My House DIY projects + New Furniture vlog. I have been re- decorating my apartment with more things of my style. I want every room and every decoration to reflect who I am as a person. I consider myself to be very creative, I love creating things. So a lot of my home decor will be D.I.Y projects. For instances, the Hexagon Shaped Shelves … click here to see blog.

For this project you’ll need:

  • Acrylic Paint – 3 colors (Midnight Blue, Pink, Nude)
  • Canvasimg_0182
  • Metal Flakes
  • Paper Towels

 

 

 

 

I purchased an 8 pack of the 10 x 10 canvas, I had a vision of doing tiled art on one large wall in my living room space. My new color scheme for my living room space is Blue + Pink, so I used those colors. And it add a third color I used a fresh tone nude.

I started by laying out my canvas on a table.

Staring with the darkest color first, I dropped dots of paint randomly all over  t

he canvas.

With a paper towel, I swiped the paint from left to right. Making streaks, sort of.

Before starting a new color, I used my hair dryer to dry the paint.

First I applied blue, then pink, then the nude paint .

Lastly, I took the metal flakes and just tore off a few small pieces and placed them on top of the wet paint at random.

 

 

Here is the Finished Product

My living has double doors that lead out to the balcony. I decided to tile 4 of the canvas paints on each side of the double doors. As you walk into the front door the back wall and double doors are what you see. I think my abstract art looking good in this spot, even though I visioned something different. I want to add some greenery or plants to this view. Maybe a tall faux plant in each corner under the paintings.

Hello Passionistas !!!

Yesterday, my girls and I experienced yet another outstanding show by Beyoncé featuring Jay Z at the On The Run 2 Tour. It’s always a pleasure when 👑🐝 blesses us with her creativity and stage presence.

This show was my 1st time watching Chloe x Halle (Beyoncé’s artist) perform live. I love those girls! They are such great artists and I am a BIG fan. I even made t-shirts to wear to the concert.

Check out my wardrobe choice:

Black Tee (Men’s) purchased at Walmart

Red Biker shorts purchased at Walmart

Black and White Vans

Beauty Supply store clear fanny pack

NATURAL HAIR PROTECTIVE STYLE

I’ve had this hairstyle idea in my head for a while, but never had the opportunity to do it until the concert. It turnt out better than I thought. The black choker, hoop earrings and makeup really brought the whole look together for me.

DIY Project | Hexagon Shape Shelf

Hello Passionistas!

I’m excited to share with you, my first DIY project video.

How to make Hexagon Shaped Shelves out of popsicle sticks?

This project was super simple to make and cost less than $20.00

I hung the shelves on the wall near the entry way of my apartment. This is also where I have my storage ottoman to store my shoes and handbags. I thought the wall decor gave this area a little more character.

Be sure to drop some feedback in the comments section below and let me know what you think. If you’d like to see more videos like this one – give this post a like!

Pinterest DIY Project

Hello Passionista!

I love Pinterest. I literally have a board for just about anything. When I’m planning an event, going on a trip, or looking for a new hobby, Pinterest is my go to place for inspiration and ideas.

Every holiday, my family gets together for dinner and fun together. Lately, I have been head of decorating committee. For Easter Sunday, I made a mason jar centerpiece inspired by a picture I liked on Pinterest.

Here’s the Pinterest picture:

Here’s my centerpiece:

It was simple and quick to make. All the supplies came from the Dollar Tree. I was able to fill 8 mason jars for centerpieces in less than 20 minutes.

How did I do?
