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 […]

Cheapy, Creepy, Halloween Party Invitations
Handsome Hubby and I decided to have a Halloween Party this year. (OK. I decided to throw it and told HH that I hoped he would attend…) I want to do this as inexpensively as possible, but with style. Invitations set the tone. I was able to snap up some silver/black toned iridescent card-stock that […]
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 […]
Artwork from a church bulletin.
First, let me explain the why. I’m attending a bible study on Thursday mornings called Discerning the Voice of God. It is the follow-up to He Speaks (both by Priscilla Shirer). In a nutshell, if we slow down, shut up and try to get closer to God, we’ll hear Him. These two studies are the […]
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 […]
I will spray paint anything that will hold still long enough for me to do so.
I don’t know what these ugly-ass shrubs are called, but they are all over the place here in So Cal. However. they have these fabulous little berries that grow in clumps on them. Did you know that you can paint live plants? Yep. I don’t remember what the original color of this little metal piece […]
Thanksgiving Decor Wrap-Up
I mentioned that I’ve been a bit busy with my Thanksgiving preparations. We had 20 people for Thanksgiving dinner. My dining room seats 8 people comfortably (…. 10 people uncomfortably). We needed to move things out to the patio. Since we live in Southern California, this is usually a safe move. However, our patio just […]
Easy monogrammed ornaments.
Make pretty, monogrammed ornaments. Take horrible, plastic, over-sized ornaments from the Dollar Store…. Spray paint them, add a monogram and liberally apply glitter…. Ta-da! To do this, I used a Cricut (calligraphy cartridge) and black cardstock.** I watered down a little ModPodge in a shallow dish, then floated the cut letter in there for a […]
