Happy Friday! I am waking up in the rainy and gorgeous Portland, Oregon area today! While I’m off visiting friends, I wanted to share a Quickie-Make-Over with you. I hope it isn’t blasphemous to refer to any nativity as a crappy nativity, but that’s kind of what this one from the Dollar Store started out […]
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I know that for some of you, Thanksgiving is the day that you enjoy your family while you mentally prepare to brave the crowds and find the deals on Black Friday. Might I suggest an alternative? Cyber Monday. Stay at home and shop online. Specifically, ConsumerCrafts.com This site has all sorts of […]
When a big wind storm blew a ton of bark off our tree, I decided to upcycle some glass jars and make tree bark hurricane lanterns and candle holders.

So far I have exactly 4, and they are making an appearance in my Halloween decor this year. These cool bottles got a creepy make-over, thanks to fabulous Halloween Clip […]
We’ll get to the eyebrow incident in a moment. I write a lot about crafty stuff and decorating. I like clothes, but care more about the price tag than the fashion, so I am hardly what you’d call a fashionista. I like make-up and nail polish too, but I don’t want to pay too much […]
I love fresh herbs. We use a lot of basil and a ton of cilantro, and there is just no substitute for the fresh stuff! Last week our grocery store had a deal on cilantro: 5 bunches for $1. Even though we can’t use all of that up right then and there, I bought it. Yes, yes, […]
