Today’s guest post is from this fabulous blogger that I met on twitter, discovered we were both Southern California girls and decided to host The SoCal Social together. We totally hit it off and I am so glad we’re friends. She is one of the nicest people ever, super duper creative, has fabulous jewelry tutorials, […]
Hello, friends! I love upcycling and recycling projects, and there is no one better at this than Johnnie at Saved By Love Creations. Not only is she super talented, but she can sniff out other fabulous projects and round them up, categorize them and make them easy to find in one place! I’ve written before about […]
Hello, my dear V Spot Readers. You know that I am pretty open about my family life and I try to keep it pretty real around here. On Wednesday afternoon our son, Mitch, was hit and run over by a car. (A Suburban! Good Lord!) He is going to be alright, thank God, but while […]
Want to make your own scented, layered jar candles? Want to do it, using items you already have on hand..? Practically for free..? It’s easy! 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 […]

Nothing says Halloween like pumpkins covered in chains. (Right…? Possibly…? It’s just me, then?) I love how these chain pumpkins turned out!
These black and white pumpkin topiaries are an easy to make project. All you need are a few items from the Dollar Store and some paint! The ravens holding up the Halloween banner make the project extra fun. Check out the easy tutorial.
We all have them… a stash of shopping bags. It bugs me that they are usually the perfect size for a gift bag, but you can’t very well give the gift of Legos and put them in a Ann Taylor bag, now can you? (Because that would be weird.) Fortunately, it’s totally possible to turn […]
I love “distressed” art projects. They’re so forgiving. If it isn’t perfect, or you really mess something up…. that’s ok. I meant to do that. That being the case, I really enjoy this type of project. Here’s my latest: Ombre Owl Artwork, using Halloween silhouettes from the Dollar Store. This was really quite easy to […]
