I have a few items in my home/craft closet that I just re-do over and over and over again. (This usually involves spray paint.) One of those items is an old globe… A few years ago I picked this globe up at a yard sale for about 50 cents. My first re-do was my […]
Once Halloween is over, you can paint your real pumpkins and add a touch of bling to create elegant pumpkins for Thanksgiving. Why toss all of those orange pumpkins? Add a little paint, ribbon and some sparkle to create something beautiful.
I love fresh flowers. I love Hydrangeas. I will even tolerate dried flowers…. as long as they’re Hydrangeas. Here’s an easy way to dry them, and it’s amazing how long they will keep! First, find yourself a Hydrangea bush. If your neighbors have one and you don’t… make friends with your neighbors. Go ahead and […]
I’m finally starting to get in a spring-y mood. I’m ready for a little color. I’ve been seeing this gorgeous blue-green color everywhere and I am craving it. I did a faux patina champagne bucket in a similar color and I love it. Some of these trendy pottery pieces can be really expensive though, and I’d […]

I have a little problem…. you know those candles you buy that smell amazing, but the wick burns down through the middle of them and you’re left with a bunch […]
I wanted one more little Christmas tree for our buffet table. Just a little one… I also wanted to get rid of some of my scrap paper stash. This is the easiest thing in the world to do. If you can cut pieces of paper into squares, then you can do this craft. Here’s what […]
Sprucing… get it? (Sorry.) Yesterday I shared how much I love the Christmas tree clippings that you can get at your local tree lot, and showed you the little “planters” I made using the cuttings. Using the same cuttings, it’s very easy to take a cheap, cheesy plastic garland and make it look spectacular. This […]
