3 Easy Mason Jar Hacks

Yeah, I’m kinda obsessed with Mason Jars…

Can’t blame me. They¬†are pretty damn versatile. And¬†their charm remains universal.

Watch WhatsUpMoms transform simple mason jars into 3 cool items you can use around the house!

Tomorrow I’ll share what this lady can do with Diet Coke cans!!

BTW I tend to share DIY projects that are doable for an average person (like me!) Trust me, not everything on Pinterest is as easy as they make it seem. If you have not incurred a few Pinterest fails by now, you are too damn perfect and we cannot be friends!



Online DIY and Sewing classes for just $20!


A few years ago I¬†took basic sewing classes and realized how easy sewing is! Trust me I’m no seasoned crafter. I run out of patience fairly quickly. There is a list of DIY’s gone bad in my rolodex. Encountering physics seemed a relatively easier task¬†then learning how to sew until…well…I actually learned how to sew. Couple of days of basic sewing and I was off to making skirts and blouses.

But here’s the deal. If you’re like me and craving to learn how to sew, you already know that you have to reserve at least 8 hours to two full days of basic training. Unfortunately some¬†of us do not have the luxury of spare time especially working moms.

Which is why when I ran into these online sewing classes I was like wow, this is pretty awesome! For just $20 anyone can learn the simple techniques of sewing at their own pace!

I’ve included the link to the intro video below. See what you think. If you like, you can buy¬†the class here.

Brit+Co. offers additional¬†training classes if you’re in the market to freshen up or pick up¬†other crafting abilities.

DIY: This 3-Ingredient Serum Will Give You Thicker Brows


According to Wilson, ‚ÄúApply a mixture of castor oil, vitamin E, and argan oil each night by rubbing it into the brow with a Q-tip or your finger, and keep it on until morning. Pay attention to the areas where you are no longer growing new or thick hair. It‚Äôs an old beauty secret we‚Äôve been using at the salon to help clients achieve a fuller brow and even out hair. Clients usually see results in a few months.‚ÄĚ A few months is a small price to pay for getting your brows back!

I can vouch for the magic behind castor oil. Get this: growing up, every night before going to sleep, my dad would apply castor oil to our eye lashes (by “our” I mean me & my 2 sisters). There’s a reason we ended up with thick lashes! These tips work! Lately my eyebrows have been slimming down much to my dismay. So I resorted¬†to old school remedies and started the castor oil treatment on my brows. Within a week I’ve noticed a difference!

36 Creative DIY Ideas To Organize Your Jewelry

About 7 months ago, I wrote a post on Beautiful Ways To Organize Your Jewelry. I can’t believe I’ve been posting on this blog for this long!!! Anyhow, slightly off topic but…Mads Phikamphon from¬†reached out to me couple of months ago¬†to share an infographic¬†they put together which takes a look at¬†36 more brilliant DIY ideas to help organize jewelry. I thought the infographic was done perfectly well so I asked Mads if they’ll be kind enough to allow me to share their infographic on Quaintrelleoquist. The answer was yes, to my relief, so here it is:


“It’s always a problem to get your jewelry organized, so it doesn’t end up with a big mess. A big mess where you can find the second earring, where you have to untangle your necklaces form each other, etc.¬†Most people end up buying a jewelry box to get their things organized, but it might often be¬†a better idea to make your own organizer.¬†Most of the organizers shown on this infographic shouldn’t be to difficult to make. They are also rather cheap to make and depending on your crafting skills, they will probably also end up being worthy of display.”¬†Mads Phikamphon

Perfectly said! Coming from a Jewelry Fanatic/Hoarder, I have yet to find a Jewelry cabinet in the market to fit my needs. So as of now, I’m just waiting on more space to work with so I can come up with my own ways to organize my jewelry.

Mads and I have shared several emails in the last couple of months. It has been so pleasant communicating with the folks behind Check out their website especially if you are a magnet for jewelry. Their services help you find jewelry from shops across Europe!

A little creativity goes a long way!
