DIY Sweet Treats Pillows – FOUR Different Designs!

For those who might be new around here, I’m OBSESSED with anything sweet! It is my life dream to have a house that can accurately described as a “dessert museum”, and I am slowly working my way towards that dream with super cute DIY projects such as this one.

Home decor items are something I absolutely adore, but because of my very specific style needs (AKA things shaped like food, food, and more food), it’s often hard to find the right thing for my taste – which is why I make my own!

Pillows are actually the first thing I ever learnt how to sew, and are still my favourite sewing craft so far. Even though I got my first sewing machine for Christmas last year, I still love hand sewing so I chose to hand sew ALL FOUR of these pillows – and yes, it took quite a long time! 😅

There are SO many ways to incorporate your own personal style wishes and wants into your decor through the magic of DIY, and homemade pillows are definitely one of the best options.

The materials needed are super cheap and easy to find (especially if you use the fabric from thrifted clothes, like I do!), the design possibilities are endless, AND they are the perfect beginner’s sewing project. Don’t forget what our motto is here at The Small Adventurer: “if I can do it, you can too!” 🙌 Have fun creating!Read More »

How to Make Your Own Accessories From (Almost) Any Item

If you follow me over on Instagram, chances are you’ll know that I’m currently OBSESSED with making my own jewellery! I am constantly searching for new items to turn into earrings, collar clips, necklaces, or charm bracelets. I am having so much fun with this new hobby of mine that I knew I had to share my tips and tricks with you all on here ☺️

Whilst MY personal style (which can be accurately summed up with the words “sweet”, “cute”, and “novelty”) may not align with yours, you can still take the methods I use and apply it to your own homemade jewellery.

In this post, I will share with you the kind of items I usually use for my accessories, ideas on how to make your own items/pendants if you can’t find the design you want, AND the actual tools and equipment that help me make those ideas real.

As long-time readers will know, I pride myself on being #thrifty, so this hobby – including the equipment required – is not expensive at all, which means anyone can start making their own accessories NOW 😊

ITEMS YOU CAN TURN INTO ACCESSORIES:

NOVELTY ERASERS.

The majority of my accessories are made from fun-shaped erasers, and there’s a few reasons for this. One being that they are really easy to find as almost everyone is a proud stationery lover these days. They’re also really cheap, and often come in packs of different designs for only a few dollars.

Due to their small size, they’re relatively light in weight, which means they won’t be too heavy on your ear lobes if you choose to turn them into earrings. Plus, since they’re so soft, it’s easy to insert an eye pin into them with minimal effort!

If you’re wondering where I bought the erasers that I used, the macaron ones are from Kmart, the NON-waffle cone ice cream ones are from The Reject Shop, and the rest – including the waffle cone ice cream, biscuits, fast food, sushi, and donut designs – are from Daiso Australia.Read More »

Friends Storylines That Would Be A Lot Different in 2019

Like most people in the world, I adore the TV show Friends. It honestly seemed like it was always playing in the background when I was younger, and I’ve watched the entire series from start to finish many times since becoming an adult.

Like most things that were created a few decades ago, not every part of Friends has aged well. This is because we as humans are always evolving and asking ourselves if what we are doing is enough, or right.

Growing up in an era that is focused on making the world a more acceptable place has made me look at things such as Friends in a different way. Whilst I still love Friends and will continue to watch it forever, I can’t help but wonder how certain storylines would be different if Friends had come out within the last few years – which is exactly what this post is about!

Whilst going through my latest watch-through of Friends, I noted down certain events that I think would have been done differently if Friends had been made post-2010. Don’t get me wrong, I know the show is a comedy and not everything has to be so serious, but I think other shows such as Will & Grace cover both topics perfectly, so it is possible!

Let me know your thoughts on these storylines – and any others I didn’t include – and how they would be different nowadays in the comments below 👇Read More »
