I have been wanting to replace the little secretary desk by our front door for a long time. I knew I probably wanted a book case and had my eye out for one that was just the right size. Ding-ding-ding! We have a winner! I love how this beachy bookcase makeover turned out! Last […]
Over the weekend I was feeling a little crafty. We’ve all seen the faux foil wrapped chocolate bunnies, but how about some faux foil wrapped chocolate eggs? (And believe it or not, I did it using foil wrappers from Valentine’s Day chocolates!) Faux? Why? I’ll tell you why… because I ate a bunch of Valentine’s […]
Easter seems like it’s coming so early this year! Why is it in March? I don’t get it. Half the country is still buried in snow, and even here in normally sunny SoCal the weather doesn’t quite feel like spring yet. At any rate, I’m not ready for it. I can’t get on board with […]
I needed something tall to flank each side of our front door. Since I’m a symmetry girl, I wanted them to match. This is what I came up with: these faux hammered metal planters. And just for funzies, (since it’s Halloween and all) I thought a spiderweb topiary or two would be kind of cool.

Today…? Personalized Wine Charms. Last year when it was my turn to […]
Have you heard of Scribble Shop? It is an amazing online resource for crafters… tons and tons of craft supplies at awesome prices, plus inspiration and tutorials all in one stop! They sent me a big box of mystery goodies and challenged me to get creative. Here’s what they sent me: I got some great […]
Well, not entirely out of beverage napkins. There are a couple other things too. I’m getting ready for our Halloween party on Saturday night and I love lots of candles at my parties. On the tables… on chandeliers… in the yard… everywhere. I have a bunch of empty jars, and while I would normally just […]
I shared this project earlier this month at The Country Chic Cottage‘s “Beach Bash”. I was asked to come up with a beach themed craft, and I knew immediately what I wanted to do. I wanted to try and create one of those big, gorgeous (expensive) sailboats for my mantel. You know what happened? EPIC. […]
For months, every day I would wake up and say to myself: “Today’s the day! Today’s the day I am going to clean up the black hole of crap that is next to my computer!” Every night I would go to bed and think, “…tomorrow… I’ll do it tomorrow…” The problem is that it isn’t […]
