The {Skinny Tie} Tutorial

Working at Neiman Marcus the Hubby has come to appreciate the {Skinny Tie} Most of his ties are the traditional wide tie & he was wanting something new. He said to me the other day, "I want a hobby like you, I want to do something creative!" I told him to look around the Blog-o-sphere for some "Man DIY's"
A few days passed, I walked into the living room & guess what I husband...sewing...& ironing!! The clouds opened & I heard angels singing, hallelujah!! So proud of the Hubs & his craftiness!

Justin's DIY {Skinny Tie} Tutorial
Find yourself a good example tie (you can wing it if you don't)
Use a seam ripper to open your tie & position your template tie
Use a permanent marker & dot an outline of your template tie 
Cut your batting & equivalent proportions of the actual tie
Use and iron to smooth out the old creases in the tie
Make your new folds & set them with your iron
Sew your tie back together, making sure you don't go through the entire tie, just the back & the batting
Voila! Your very own skinny tie!
So impressed that my hubby did this all on his own! This was his first DIY project, I can't wait to see what he comes up with next!

Happy crafting y'all! Linking up HERE

  13. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
