Tis the season for Stuff We Don’t Need. What could be more useless than these….? But you know what? They’re pretty. I’d like ’em if I got them as a gift. You know what else? They’re cheap and easy. You’ll need a heavy duty adhesive (I like Goop), spray paint and glitter or other embellishments. […]
The chameleon chandelier is back. Again.
Handsome Hubby asked me if I was going to use THE chandelier in our Christmas decor this year. Originally I said no. I’m so glad I did not listen to me. This free chandy has gotten a lot of use. Who knew?! (Well, I knew when I got it….) It’s been done for Christmas, for […]
I change up my Christmas color scheme every year. Last year was Black & Gold, this year is White & Silver. I realized my orange Family Rules subway art was going to harsh my Christmas mellow… I needed a temporary replacement. So! I decided to make another one for Christmas. It doesn’t perfectly match my […]
ANOTHER Quick Halloween Fix…. Redrum
I have never been one for Halloween decor. I was always more of a “harvest time” Halloween decorator… but I sure am having fun putting little scary details around the house this year. Both Conner and Mitch told me they think I’m “going overboard”. Devin probably thinks it, but doesn’t say it, and Grant takes […]
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 […]
Easy Halloween Decor – Sticks, spray paint and pumpkins, oh my!
I have already mentioned how much I love sticks. They’re free. Spray paint is cheap. People will think you’re fab. No one needs to be the wiser, right? Instead of working on other projects, I gathered and painted more sticks today. This will greet people who approach our front door. I made this today. Took […]

Mother’s Day Brunch Inspiration: birds, butterflies and booze. Ahhh. (decor ideas)
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 […]
Subway Art + Ballard Designs + sandpaper = Family Rules Subway Art
Subway Art is all the rage in blogland. So are Family Rules projects. I liked both concepts, but needed to tweak things so that they fit my style. I love the subway art that Lil Blue Boo did. You can read her tutorial on how she did this piece here. I went over and got […]
MORE decorating with road kill….
I love turning someone’s trash into my little treasure. My kids haaaayyyyyyyyyte it when I stop the car and grab something off a curb. I, however, hate to spend money, so I pick up “road kill” all the time. (Old frames are a favorite score.) One of the reasons I like road kill, besides being […]
