As some of you might know, my husband and I are now homeowners, so I’ve been more compelled to decorate. There’s no one to tell me I can’t put holes in my walls or paint them fun colors. Why not, then?
One of my latest projects is this cute farmhouse style home sign. This is a multi-season one. Every spring, fall, winter and summer I can swap out the bow for a different one, making it just as festive as the previous season. Read the whole post
It has been waaaay too long. I apologize for my absence. It’s been an interesting few months, but I’ll spare you the details. I’m getting back into my crafting and I have a schedule ready to go! You’ll be hearing from me a lot more often.
First up, this lovely table top fire bowl. I happen to live in the borough of my neighborhood and the rule is that you can’t have a fire unless it’s contained. Read the whole post
It’s been so long since I’ve posted a Make Something Mondays project. I’m sorry 🙁 I’m really trying to get back into it. This week, my project reflects my busy lifestyle.
I’ve seen cookie jar gifts like these on Pinterest for a few years now and I really like the idea. Rather than baking cookies for someone, you just put the dry ingredients in a Mason Jar and gift it with a little card that includes directions for making the cookies. Read the whole post
A few weeks ago, I was inspired by Emma’s T-shirt Cushion blog post on Puddleside Musings. She turned a t-shirt with a cute sloth into a pillow and I really enjoyed the spunk.
I found an old shirt and set out to make my own. Unfortunately, I’m not into to measuring if I don’t have to and I don’t have a sewing machine so it would take me quite a while longer to make something like that. Read the whole post
I’ve had this couch for nearly a decade and the cushions are super saggy, as you can see in the photo on the left. The structure of the couch is pretty good though, so I wanted to try to find a way to salvage it. There’s no use in spending a few hundred dollars on a new couch when this one just needs some love, right?
It was easy to fix it. All you need is some stuffing, cushion wraps and 20 minutes. Read the whole post
Happy Monday! I feel like every time I post now I say it’s been a while. This case is no different. I’m working on getting back to a regular posting schedule. As most of you know, I just moved so it’s been time consuming to get my house it order.
Anyway, along with the move, we donated our old side tables and needed new ones. I thought it would be a fun Make Something Mondays craft to make my own. Read the whole post
My hair has been short for a while so I haven’t been able to get it into a pony tail. I’ve relied heavily on bobby pins to add flare. But bobby pins are so boring, right?
I wanted to spice them up a bit. Add more color or excitement to them and I’ve always been a fan of wire wrapping, so I combined the wire wrapped jewelry design that I’ve always loved with the bobby pins for a neat hair accessory. Read the whole post
Hi. It’s been quite a while, hasn’t it? I feel like I need to re-introduce myself or something. I promise I’m not abandoning Make Something Mondays, but it’s been a crazy 2 months. In short, my husband and I bought a house and moved, along with a bunch of other goodies. It’s taken a while to get packed, moved unpacked etc but, I’m back in action!
I have a great new lineup of craft projects! This week I’m showing you how to make some fun gemstone earrings. Read the whole post
For the first time in a long time, I had a girls day with friends and we made terrariums for Aarika’s birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!). So, of course, I documented that process and made a tutorial for you.
You need a lot of supplies, but if you make more than one terrarium, they get used up quickly. Get a bunch of people together and have a movie/terrarium night or something. Otherwise, you might have supplies for years. Read the whole post
I don’t know about your weather, but it’s pretty cold and snowy here.The cold weather has been a roller coaster this year. One day is -10, the next is 40 degrees. I’m about over that junk.On a more positive note, the snow and ice is absolutely beautiful and I wanted to capture that in another mini painting, this time with a winter theme. The last two were summer and fall.
If you’d like to make your own, follow the steps below! Read the whole post
