I’m still freezing my cheeks off running around Salt Lake City for a few more days, but I wanted you to be the first to have a peek at the DIY I’m teaching tomorrow at Alt Summit! It was a twist off of my original DIY geometric necklace that fit the class time frame, but I love it just as much. The icing on the cake is that it’s equally as cute and only half the amount of time to make. Win!
You can find the wooden triangles at Hobby Lobby for less than $3, then just drill holes in two corners of the triangles and paint them. If you want to the full step-by-step tutorial, you can download the super cute instructions that Kollabora designed for my class right here.

In case don’t already follow Create Like Crazy, let me just take a moment to bask in the fact that I get to be the one to introduce you… okay, I’m back. Jordan is not only the talented designer and editor of CLC, but she is seriously one of the sweetest and most encouraging people, and I’m super excited to share her Style Diaries interview with you!
What’s your winter uniform?
It doesn’t get super cold in Florida, so I usually add a scarf, jacket and boots to my usual skinny jeans or dress.
What’s your go-to accessory?
Scarves, for sure. Especially when I’m ready for cold weather style and Florida is cooperating!
Your current favorite pattern?
Polka dots! I’m a tad bit obsessed actually. But hey, I couldn’t call myself a real blogger if I didn’t like polka dots, right? ;)
The thing you couldn’t leave the house without…
My planner! It’s shiny, gold, and beautiful. Or my rings. They all have special meaning to me. The gold rings are my dad’s wedding ring ( before he “upgraded” to silver, haha! ) and my sister’s baby ring.
Thank you Jordan for sharing your style secrets in all of their adorable glory, you rock! You can find past Style Diaries interviews, right here

It’s officially scarf weather. Even by Texas standards they’re welcomed with open arms instead of the judgmental stares from people that don’t share my fall weather love affair year-round. So, I thought I’d share my no-sew infinity scarf tutorial that I made for this craft wars post.
- T-shirt (the larger the shirt, the bigger the scarf)
- Foam pouncer
- All-surface paint
Lay your t-shirt flat, taping down the edges. Cut a line straight across just above the bottom hem and just below the sleeves or the armpit. This will form the actual scarf so try and make the cut edges as smooth as possible. A rotary cutter will give you the best result but it isn’t necessary.
Dip your pouncer in the paint color of your choice and start dotting.
Stamp your first row spaced however you’d like, then make the next row alternated from the first. Repeat this until one whole side of the scarf is patterned.
You can wear it two ways, one long loop, or loop it around twice for a short, fuller scarf!
