I have 3 plates that hang above our slider. They are sweet… not spooky. I thought I’d give them a quick fix. I cut out 3 circles of black cardstock that are the same diameter as the centers of these plates. I used my Cricut to cut out white letters. I stuck the letters onto […]
How to make a Haunted Tree. (With things you already have, of course.)
I’ve mentioned that we’re throwing a Halloween Party and I am trying my best to decorate for pennies on the dollar. So far I’ve spent about $38 on supplies ($30 of which went to black spray paint) and I think I’m in pretty good shape. We have a bare planter that is right off our […]

Invitations set the tone. I was able to snap up some silver/black toned iridescent card-stock that […]

Why do I host a Mother’s Day Brunch? I’m a mom… shouldn’t I be the attendee and not the host…? Why play hostess? Because I get to do crafty things that are purely unnecessary… but they bring me joy. Crafty Joy is my Mother’s Day gift to me. Each year I have a different color […]
Free Fall Decor. (happy sigh.)
One of my favorite things about Fall? You can decorate with yard clippings and produce. Simple is good. Amen.
Candle light has a nicer glow when it’s free.
I am a big fan of candles. Candles are good. I buy them compulsively and I burn them regularly…. especially during the fall and winter months. However, I am totally bugged when I buy a yummy, scented candle (which often is synonymous with expensive) and it burns down the middle and I have a tube […]
A simple thing.
I have been more and more crafty lately. (In a good way…) With Doctor’s orders to slow down, and dump some of the perfectionism/responsibility that I heap onto my own plate, taking the time to be creative has been therapeutic for me. And for our budget. I needed a little something to go over the […]
