My daughter and son-in -law recently moved out of their first apartment and because of the timing of everything, I was in charge of turning in their keys. I decided to take the opportunity to make an imprint of the key on a homemade Christmas ornament; this is what inspired the garland project. I had … Continue reading Burlap and Lace Garland
I thought I'd take a few moments on this snowy Monday to share my most recent Christmas decor project. I live in an old farmhouse and I have always loved the pictures of houses where there is a wreath in every window. However, I do not like the idea of spending money on all those … Continue reading Outdoor Christmas Wreaths
I've been spending some time out in the barn this fall getting my workshop set up. (So has my loving husband. I'm so glad he puts up with my shenanigans!) I've had a shop out there for a while but it wasn't set up to my liking; I was just using it as is and … Continue reading My Workshop

I really like the buttermilk colored pumpkins, but I … Continue reading Fall Dollar Store Up-cycle

I have been working on some home redecorating projects and some smaller projects that I need to write about soon. In next week, I should have my entryway project finished and I'll be able … Continue reading In The Works
Life has been busy. I started a new job and am studying for certification exams; it hasn't left much time for creating or writing. But today I got inspired. My daughter got married in May and like most newlyweds, she doesn't have many Christmas decorations and she loves Christmas...so I made her some. The letters … Continue reading Feeling inspired
So this concussion business has really slowed down every single part of my life, so I'm pretty pumped that I finally finished a project. I had to do it in small chunks because of the fatigue and aggravating brain issues I've been experiencing but I'm happy with the end result. So here is the before: … Continue reading A Finished Product!
I have been busy collecting items to redo and reinvent. I'm excited to get started and I wanted to give you a little peek at the items i will be attacking soon. There are plenty more in the works, but I'll save those for later.
