Painted Shoes

Take your shoes from bland to BLAM! with a few fabric markers and a bit of imagination.  Check out the hand-painted shoes my tweens and I made.

The girls and I were in Florida a couple of weeks ago when we came across these canvas shoes at Michael’s.

I’m a lover of “Chucks” (Converse) and my girls both love the look of Vans, and at $8 a pair it was too good to pass up.  We picked up a pair each and […]

DIY Nightstands from Rogue Engineer

With easy-to-follow building plans, these Cooper bedside tables are a simple and inexpensive route to furnishing a bedroom – check out my DIY nightstands and see for yourself!

I FINALLY have a build to share with you today!

I started these Do It Yourself (DIY) nightstands at the end of January, but with recent events, a trip to Florida and two girls with extensive dental work, they took a back-burner to more pressing items.

I got them done though!  Final coat of paint […]

Printable Book Plate

If you are Kon Mari’ing your home, or are the type to share books after you’ve read them, then these free, printable book plates are a great addition to your donations.  Give the next reader a brief critique and then encourage them to pass the book along as well.

I’m in a bit of a holding pattern of late.  As you may know if you follow me on InstaStories, Hubby and I are separating.  It’s a sad, tense and overwhelming experience […]

Messy t-shirt

Find any definition that fits your situation and turn it into a funny, declarative piece of clothing to show off – in my case, this “Messy t-shirt” fit the bill perfectly!

Good afternoon everyone!

I’m so sorry I’ve been AWOL of late; it’s not for lack of working – I actually have a ginormous workbench, 2 nightstands and a butcher block island coming soon to the blog – but it’s because my family is in a state of “flux”.

My husband and I […]

Behind-the-door-Storage

One set of building plans to create behind-the-door storage for anywhere in your home. I created extra bathroom storage for my tweens and a gift wrap storage solution for my office. Use that wasted space with this simple build.

Do you have storage and organization issues?

Like more stuff than space?

I think everyone (except maybe Mari Kondo) does. We all want to be tidy and organized, but “stuff” takes over and clutter everything up. If you are struggling to […]

Tablet charging station

Create calm out of entryway chaos by making your own iPad/iPhone charging station and mail sorter – perfect for corralling cords, electronics, keys and sunglasses.

A few years ago I posted about  a simple solution for storing and charging your iPad, iPod, iPhone, idontcare electronics.  It was a wood magazine rack that I tipped on it’s back and then drilled holes through the bottom for cords to feed through.

It was great!

A bit big and bulky, and it was a bit […]

Embroidery Floss Tassels

Create these simple embroidery floss tassels in a matter of minutes and attach them to pillows, keychains, earrings – anything at all really.

Winter has finally hit in my part of SW Ontario and it’s been C-O-L-D. A bit of snow, but plenty of cold.

Which means it’s been a bit too much for my tiny garage heaters to overcome and shop time has been limited.

I’m not one to sit around, so I brought out some long-held craft supplies to see […]
