Make your own car decal

Upgrade your wheels with a simple, funny DIY car decal like this “Objects in mirror are losing” I made today.

I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately, but I’ve been full of piss and vinegar!  Off-colour jokes, highly competitive games of Blink – The World’s Fastest Game! (affiliate link, but an AWESOME game!!), pinball, PacMan and an overall urge to laugh and cause trouble.

It’s wonderful!

I’ve […]

Make Your Own Beeswax Wraps

Canada is implementing (or trying to implement) a ban on certain ‘single-use plastics’ by 2021; things like straws, plastic plates, cutlery, bags and stir sticks to name a few.  It’s not nearly enough to reverse the damage we’ve done to the planet, but it is a move in the right direction and these DIY beeswax wraps are just one of many ways our family is participating.

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 […]

Hot Glue Gun Holder

Keep your craft room tidy and surfaces free of hot glue with this simple, scrap wood hot glue gun stand.

I post to Instagram and Facebook stories every now and then and was thinking – “but my blog friends can’t see what I’m up to!” so I thought I’d incorporate a short video or two into my posts so that you can see just how weird and wonderful I am my days are.

Last week, in the throes of a divorce and […]

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 […]

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 […]
