Do you ever have a harebrained scheme that you think about a lot but just never comes to fruition for some reason? I must admit I have them often. I am, however, proud to say that this blog post is about an idea that did finally come to life…even if it took a few years. I present […]
If you read this recent post, you know I’ve been fighting a tough battle with depression for the past few months. One of the things I’ve been trying hard to do in order to start feeling better is to get out and DO THINGS. To plan fun activities that will get me out of the […]
Wedding season is almost here, and that means wedding planning is well underway for lots of happy couples. As exciting as it is, the average cost of a wedding (according to The Knot’s 2014 Real Weddings Survey*) is $31,213, so figuring out who pays for the wedding and how to do it can cause an awful […]
When the idea of how to make a Frozen clock popped into my head the other day, I couldn’t resist trying to do it. After all, I could refer to it as “Frozen in Time”. Ha! It doesn’t have to be perfect, and mine isn’t, but it will be fun, so let’s get started! How To Make […]
The reason I’m sharing how to make a tulle wreath starts with love. My boyfriend and I say the “I love you, I love you more” thing all the time, which is weird because romance and gooey sap like that makes me retch.

I’m partial to handmade holiday gifts, and the kids and I have made oodles of them over the years (I’m sentimental so I keep everything), and since we’re entering the holiday season, I thought it was the perfect time to start sharing some of our holiday DIY crafts and ideas on my blog. I had a dedicated […]
I turned a shampoo bottle into a handy caddy this week, and by golly, it turned out great. Who knew DIY upcycling projects could be so fun?!
