Funny Animal Friday!

Because Halloween is on the approach, and because I honestly can’t think of a better way to spend my afternoon than Googling “funny animals in costumes”, here’s 20 animals in ridiculous Halloween costumes to brighten up your Friday!

Alternative Art is Awesome

I’ve stumbled across quite a few really incredible alternative art pieces lately in my internet forays, and since I know you are all art lovers and creators (and some of you have some truly amazing art in your shops, let me tell you), I wanted to share some of my favorites with you in the hopes that it might inspire some artistic reimaginings of your own!

No-sew? No problem!

When it comes to crafting, I’m pretty hopeless when it comes to anything involving a needle and thread that’s more complicated than small hole repairs or sewing a button onto a piece of clothing. I managed to round up six no-sew crafting DIYs that I’m pretty excited to get started on for some holiday gifts, and I thought I’d share them with you guys!

Doctor Who?

I’ve been a huge fan of the show since its reimagining beginning back in 2005, and with the holidays beginning to loom in the distance, I thought Artfire might be a great place to turn to find some gifts for the Whovians (Doctor Who fans) in my life! Here are some of my favorite Doctor Who inspired Artfire crafts…

Mason Jar Madness

I inherited quite a few mason jars full of jam to take with me to my first apartment. The jam, of course, vanished long ago, but I’ve used the jars for a random assortment of things since, and I’ve always loved their rustic appeal. Here are a few really cool mason jar craft DIY tutorials that have recently caught my eye!

A Sherlockian Vignette

Sometimes, after I’ve just finished a really amazing book or watched a fantastic episode of one of my favorite shows, I like to daydream about how much fun it could be to theme a living space around what I’ve just read or watched! This week, for example, I’ve been re-watching one of my absolute favorite BBC shows, Sherlock, from start to finish.

Trend Scene: Polka Dots for Fall

The fun thing with polka dots is they can be worn from head to toe. You can go as easy and simple as a scarf to a full on, classic dress like, let’s say what Julia Roberts wore on Pretty Woman, or…

Product Photography

Picture this: You’re brand new to the Artfire community, have just set up your first store, and after hours upon hours of work creating a really cool, unique set of products, you’re ready and raring to go and find some buyers! After a few weeks, though, you notice you aren’t selling nearly as much as you’d expected…

Great DIY for Mommy and Me

When I saw that love Maegan… did a DIY for her and her niece, I had to share. It’s a cute and easy DIY that anyone can do and is very on trend for kids and adults. Who doesn’t love a little glitter in their life? 🙂

Fashion’s Night Out is Coming, Get Ready!

FNO (Fashion’s Night Out) was started by Anna Wintour (the Editor-in-Chief of VOGUE) to help bring life back to the retail industry. It has turned into an event that took place in New York City to start fashion week to an international phenomenon.

Color Fun: Orange Crush

My personal favorite is orange and tan. I think it’s also a great accent color to try out for the home. Simple, small items will do the trick. I thought it would be fun to find items on Artfire in orange that show the best of what this color has to offer.

Get ready for Labor Day on September 3rd

It’s only a few weeks a way from a holiday that will kick off the fall holidays that we look forward to, and end the summer festivities we leave behind. It’s also the point where people used to say that it was the last day you could wear white…
