Personalized Pet Food Container

January 22nd, 2017|CRAFTS, ORGANIZE|

I’m applying to be a Silhouette brand ambassador and one of the requirements was to come up with a tutorial (with photos) of a simple project of my choice.

I was torn, do I do something so ‘out-there’ they can’t help but notice me (think papercut purse or tattoo template), or do I play it tame and come up with a highly pinnable image?

There’s not much you can’t do with the Silhouette CAMEO®, but I couldn’t come up with a […]

The BEST Protein Bars in the world

January 20th, 2017|HEALTH/FITNESS, RECIPES|

“The BEST protein bars in the world” sound like a tall order to live up to?

BEST protein bars, protein bar recipe, chocolate protein bars, meal replacement bars, healthy snack, no-bake protein bars

You need to try these and tell me I’m wrong.  I don’t even like protein bars as a rule, but I’ve been snacking away on these like they were candy.  Truly, I even had one as dessert the other […]

Build Your Own Monitor Stand

January 18th, 2017|BUILD IT, DIY, ORGANIZE|

I have to show you the little section of the house where I sit and blog:

It’s a corner of my bedroom and yes, most days it looks like this (I’m embarrassed to admit).

Part of my problem, besides stockpiling snacks everywhere, is paper.  I have books, course manuals, receipts, and a million notes that get shoved here and there and create this disaster.  (See how I blamed the receipts, like they were […]

Fairy Door – Invite a Fairy into your home.

January 16th, 2017|KIDS|

A few years ago, when I started this blog, I showed you our fairy door.

Fairy door, Gnome home, elf door

(Forgive the gruesome finger – workplace accident.)

Since our Fairy – Ruby – first moved in, her home has been a source of entertainment and imagination for the girls and their friends.

Maddie, now 10, is somewhat past the fairy stage, but Miss Chloë still asks if we’ve seen Ruby around.

Because of these inquiries, […]

Bathroom Storage Tower

January 15th, 2017|BUILD IT, DECOR, DIY, ORGANIZE|

Sorry I’ve been absent for a couple of days, but the projects I’ve been working on are of such awesomeness that I’m sure you’ll forgive me.

This one I’m SO EXCITED about because it looks fantastic!  Save for a few small giveaways, you’d probably never guess that my bathroom storage tower was a DIY job.

First up you need to see the before:

This is our master ensuite; double sinks, laminate counters […]

Easy Heart Decorations

January 11th, 2017|CRAFTS, HOLIDAYS|

I’ll start this by saying that just because I made my hearts out of wood, does NOT mean you have to.

In fact, if I wasn’t trying to get in some practice with my scroll saw, I would have made these heart decorations out of cereal boxes.

As it was, I definitely needed the practice.

T-Shirt Pillow Covers

January 8th, 2017|CRAFTS, DECOR, REFINISH/REPURPOSE|

So the other day you saw my throw pillow collection, or at least part of it.  Well, the other side of that problem is my throw pillow cover collection.

At roughly $30 per throw pillow, keeping up with Seasonal themes can get really expensive!  But I purposely painted my house grey so that I could inject a shot of just about any colour at any time to keep things fresh and lively… so I created my middle ground.

Easy-sew throw pillow covers.

My previous […]

Stone Feature Wall – Details Renovations

January 6th, 2017|BEFORE & AFTER, DECOR|

I have friends named Sherri – yup plural friends but with the same name.

One Sherri is a brilliant contractor (DetailsRenovations.com) and can take any project from ‘meh’ to WOWZA!

The other Sherri has this incredible talent for interior design – even though that’s not her profession.

Together these two have knocked my socks off – more than once.

Case in point, this is Sherri’s dining room:

Throw Pillow Storage / DIY Rope Shelves

January 5th, 2017|BUILD IT, DECOR, ORGANIZE|

I’m so excited to show off today’s DIY throw pillow storage solution – mainly because it’s both pretty and functional – but ESPECIALLY because it’s so easy and what an impact!

Remember this corner of my basement?

I made up the paper art piece to try to fill a gap above our workout storage unit (formerly TV stand that I haven’t moved out of the room yet) – but it wasn’t enough.  Not big enough, no impact – just sort of stop-gap […]

Medicine Cabinet Organization

January 4th, 2017|ORGANIZE|

Do you have the organizing bug?

With the boxing-up of Christmas decorations comes the urge to reduce, purge, organize and clean – come on, admit it – it can’t be just me?

Step one was the tree and decorations, step three is organizing the storage of the tree and decorations.

Step two is medicine cabinet organization.

A natural progression don’t you think?

Truthfully, I got bored with all the Christmas stuff and needed a little job that could be whipped out quickly and easily to […]
