Chalk Couture

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 […]

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 […]

Simple Fall Sign – Crisp, Cozy, Autumn Days

Some scrap wood, pre-cut letters and a bit of paint are all you need to create your own DIY Fall sign (with a Winter sign on the back) to take your decor through 2 seasons!

Today’s post is actually part two of a post I did last winter…

Do you remember seeing my Hot Cocoa sign?

Today is a hot cocoa kind of day, hot cocoa stand, hot chocolate station, hot chocolate stand

I […]

Simple Raised Tray

A repurposed panel from an old nightstand, some decorative knobs and a bit of paint are all you need to create a pretty bathroom vignette with this simple raised tray.

I’ll start this post by apologizing.  I am not an interior designer, nor am I a professional stager or even photographer – which means that more often than not, my photos don’t do the project justice.  I’m working on it, and practice makes perfect, but believe me when I say these […]

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 […]
