As I try to promote my new business, a friend suggested I come to her Holiday Boutique. I could hand out brochures and business cards. Cool. But I figured I should have a little something to sell, too…. and that whatever I sold should be a re-done/re-worked/re-purposed something or other. Here are a few of […]
Free Fall Decor. (happy sigh.)
One of my favorite things about Fall? You can decorate with yard clippings and produce. Simple is good. Amen.
You know those fake orange pumpkins you can buy at craft stores? The ones that look like fake pumpkins? You know, the fake ones pretending to be real. Everyone knows they’re fake. If they’re already fake looking, you may as well make them look like they’re supposed to be that way. I take my fake […]
Candle light has a nicer glow when it’s free.
I am a big fan of candles. Candles are good. I buy them compulsively and I burn them regularly…. especially during the fall and winter months. However, I am totally bugged when I buy a yummy, scented candle (which often is synonymous with expensive) and it burns down the middle and I have a tube […]
A simple thing.
I have been more and more crafty lately. (In a good way…) With Doctor’s orders to slow down, and dump some of the perfectionism/responsibility that I heap onto my own plate, taking the time to be creative has been therapeutic for me. And for our budget. I needed a little something to go over the […]
Yes, I know they’re noodle bowls. Shut up already.
I’m crafty. I’m cheap. I’m able to see potential in almost everything. Those things combine to create a perfect storm of unfinished projects. This secretary desk/dresser isn’t finished. As you can see, the most glaring problem is that I haven’t found feet for this yet. So yes. Your eyes do not deceive you. This piece […]
Not quite trash to treasure, but I left it better than I found it.
Mod Podge is one of my favorite mediums that l use when attempting to turn crap into a craft project… And? It’s cheap and easy, so if I don’t like it, I haven’t committed a lot of time (bad enough) or money (yikes! worse!) to the project. Like most frugal/crafty Mommies, I love Goodwill, Target […]
Art from old wood and an old cow…?
~~~~ Updated July 2, 2009 for the Writer’s Workshop at Mama’s Losin’ It. The prompt is to show something I made. Here ya go.~~~~~ I am a compulsive picture frame buyer. I cannot help myself. I also buy matting, photo paper, and have so many digital photos stored that we needed to get a back-up […]
What the heck is an online Spray Paint Party?
A few weeks ago I stumbled across a blog I really like: Thrifty Decor Chick I thought, “Wow! This is awesome. Here is a girl who thinks like I do…. re-purpose, re-use, re-finish, etc.” She loves Goodwill and yard sales, and she shares my love of spray paint. Little did I know, that there is […]
Yeah, I’m cheap and easy. What of it?
~~~~~~~~UPDATED/REVISED 3/31/09~~~~~~~~~~I am so in love with Thrifty Decor Chick and the crafty blogging community, I just had to submit another post for her Spray Paint Party. I know I posted this a few weeks ago, and I’m late (again) to the party, but I liked this project and wanted to share…~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I’m kind of […]
