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 […]

Handmade Gift Challenge – Who doesn’t need a charging station?

What do you gift someone that has everything?  Chances are a DIY charging station (or two) would be a welcome addition to most homes and for most anyone over the age of 8.  Today I’m sharing the plans as part of the #HandmadeGiftsChallenge on Instagram.

 

🎶 Good morning, good morning!  🎶 (in my best Debbie Reynolds voice)

Today is the #HandmadeGiftsChallenge with some of the best DIY bloggers in the biz – and I am so excited to have been invited to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

DIY Watch Box

Using a dollar store photo frame, some scrap wood and a few rollers, I was able to build this gorgeous DIY watch box to showcase 9 of Hubby’s favourite watches.

I was playing with scrap wood in the garage the other day and wanted to see if I could make a watch box to display all of Hubby’s watches.

I had a small pane of glass that came from an 8×10 dollar store picture frame that had sat in my garage for […]

Homemade Dog Biscuits

You are 6 (healthy) ingredients away from the best dog biscuits your fur-baby will ever taste (trust me, I’ve tasted them)

We have a 5 year old Bernese Mountain dog named Lacey (aka. Lacey-Mae, Lacey-Moo, Miss Lacey, Angel Face, Princess Pea, Moo-Moos, Baby Girl and Barkasaurus Rex).  She’s actually MY dog, that I generously share with the family sometimes and she is spoiled.

So much so, that she now has […]
