Easy Marbled Ornaments

With clear plastic ornaments and a bit of acrylic craft paint from the dollar store, you can make these easy marbled ornaments in any colour combination to match your Holiday decor.

I had a dilemma; a minor one, but a small nagging concern that was eating at me…  an empty bowl in my Christmas family room.

I know, first world problems – but it was the last element I wanted to complete before photographing my Christmas tree for the blog.

Christmas Tree 2019

Introducing the 100Things2Do Christmas tree 2019!  A white and champagne colour scheme with natural elements thrown in for texture – this year’s Christmas tree shines day and night.

2019 has been a crazy-awful-horrible year at our house.  If you follow along, you know that the girls and I (and a menagerie of pets) found ourselves alone and struggling with all of the transformations that entailed.

Chalk Couture – Screen printing you can do at home!

Have you ever been curious to try screen printing? What if I told you it’s something you can easily do in your own home with these pre-made Chalk Couture transfers?  I went to a really neat class last weekend and got to play around a bit and had to share.

I guess I should start with “this is NOT a sponsored post” – I don’t work for the company or earn any monies by telling you about this (not that I […]

Make your own Christmas shirt

Do you have access to a cutting machine?  If so, (even if it’s a friend that has one) you can make your own Christmas shirt in a few easy steps!

I have to start by saying these ideas are plagiarized.

I don’t mean I was “inspired by”, I mean I copied the idea entirely – without improvement or alteration.

But the idea, and the Christmas shirts are SO CUTE!

You can’t improve on perfection right?  And since Artsy Fartsy Mama is giving away […]

DIY King Size Bed

Take it from me, building a bed – even a DIY king size bed with upholstered panels – is NOT as difficult as you might think.  With plans from Rogue Engineer as my jumping off point, I was able to build this Rachel Ray knock-off for about $255 US!

Dollar Store Hallowe’en Wreath

Entice ghouls and goblins to your door with this simple and inexpensive Dollar Store Hallowe’en wreath!  Deco-mesh, a wreath form and some seasonal picks are all you need.

Good morning!  Happy October!

Truthfully, I only like October for the weather – I’m not really a Hallowe’en fan.

We have HUNDREDS of kids come by our house Trick-or-Treating – literally hundreds – and the constant doorbell ringing makes me crazy. I wish all the kids would just come to my house in one massive […]
