OK. I forgot to show you something that I did last summer. And I’m really surprised I didn’t show you this earlier, because it was one of those decorating things that my husband told me I couldn’t do…. but I bugged him and bugged him until finally decided that this was not the hill he […]
Personalize wine glasses with glass etching cream
It was my turn to host the bunco group a few weeks ago. I had been randomly picking up nice wine glasses at thrift stores or yard sales because I knew I wanted to have a personalized glass for each lady…. Why have wine charms when you can easily etch their names into the glass? This […]
Boring seaweed turned into coral? It could happen…
If you’ve been following along with me over the past week, you know I’ve been on a coral kick. And dough. A dough/coral kick. I made white coral, red coral, I even made starfish. Out of dough. But long before I busted out the dough, I busted out the acrylic paint. This seaweed is […]
Red Faux (“Daux”) Coral – Easy coastal decor made from salt dough.
Red coral is all over the place these days. Last week I made some faux coral using a basic dough of salt and flour. While I was doing that, I also made up a few pieces to make it look like red coral. So here is a fun DIY for fake red coral you can […]
Mother’s Day Wrap-up. No pictures of people, but pictures of Pom-Poms. Duh.
I just washed and put away the last champagne flute from our annual Mother’s Day Brunch. This is the 5th one we’ve hosted, and each time it gets a little easier to put together. I change the theme and/or color scheme each year. I was going to do this turquoise and apple green, with pops […]
Pink cabbage is just plain wrong.
So the other day I was in my local Goodwill (Yes…. The one that sells rocks…) and I came across this. It clearly had a lid at some point in its life, but the lid was missing and there was a chip on the top of it.Oh. And it was pink. Who has ever heard […]
The Blue Twig Chandelier. (who knew?)
This is the project I did for last week’s One Month To Win It challenge. It gave me so many problems that I almost included a “rest in peace” wreath when I sent it off to the judges. Shockingly, this project won for the week. (In spite of my son telling me it looked like […]
Turning the dog’s chew toy into a chair. A Mod Podge make-over.
This was my project for Round 2 of One Month To Win It’s craft competition. Now that the voting is over I can share it with you. The challenge was to do something that involved Mod Podge. Mod Podge and I go way back, but we have a sort of volatile relationship. (There have been […]
No-sew curtain panels.
Let me say this out of the gate: I can sew, I just usually choose not to. (OK, I almost ALWAYS choose not to.) I sew with a glue gun. (Don’t you judge me.) I don’t usually buy pre-made curtain panels. I found a great discount fabric store where I can get gorgeous fabrics anywhere […]
Personalized Dishes – How to bring a casserole to a potluck… and not lose your pyrex.
I love to cook. I’m happy to bring something (or a couple of somethings) to a potluck. I am not happy when I don’t get my Pyrex back again… There is no such thing as Dish Karma. If you lose one, another doesn’t show up as a random act of dish replacement. The Land of […]
