Lutyen’s DIY Garden Bench

DIY a statement piece for your garden with the free building plans for this DIY Lutyen’s garden bench – made with pocket holes in lieu of fancy joinery – so it’s perfect for the self-taught builder (like me!)

I like creating plans and coming up with solutions to fit my specific needs at home but there are so many fantastic plans already out there – many for free – that you really don’t have to reinvent the wheel with every build.

This […]

Scrap Wood Window Box

I made this DIY window box for $0 using scrap 2″x 4″s and you can too! 

Good morning friends!

Does it bug you that I use capital letters in my titles?  I grew up learning to capitalize letters in a title, but later – while working in Marketing – I learned that the proper way to title articles was to capitalize only the first word in the title.

But that bugs me.

Like Pluto fluctuating between a moon and a planet bugs me.

Like dinosaurs […]

A chair makeover you won’t believe!

You will not believe the before and after of this chair makeover.  I didn’t believe the before and after of this chair makeover and I did (some of) the work!

You’re not going to believe this transformation.

I didn’t believe in this transformation.  In fact, when my friend Dayna brought me this chair, I actually tried to talk her out of having work done on […]

Simple Summer Bouquet

Who says flowers are for special occasions only?  And who says you have to spend a bundle?  This time of year is fantastic for finding gorgeous summer blooms along the edge of rural roads… for free!  Check out my simple summer bouquets made up of overgrowth from my own garden.

I was driving around the other day, just running errands, and I noticed that along the sides of the roads (the ones on the outskirts of town anyways) the ditches were […]

Name Photo Collage

Looking for a personal and heartfelt gift idea?  What about a photo collage of letters (from someplace special to you) to make up the recipients name – like these name photo collages for my girls.

I / my girls received the sweetest gift the other week; a friend – and fantastic photographer – gifted my girls with photographs of signs that he had taken from all over town.  Places in our city that we’ve seen or visited so that each letter […]

Stained glass window panels

Take a couple of panels of stained glass, add a cedar frame and create art for your windows! 

Hey strangers!

Where have you been?!  It’s been so long since I’ve touched base with you – are you ignoring me?

Kidding – and with my apologies – I’ve been working hard, but certain life problems and projects have interrupted my work flow.

Take these stained glass windows I helped a friend with  back in May – they have been sitting on my photo reel waiting […]
