Wooden Chalkboard Plant Markers

I was at Michael’s craft store the other day and saw a set of these of rectangular plant markers by Martha Stewart and thought they looked pretty fun and functional.  When I took them to check out, they rang up $12.99…yikes!, they were in the wrong bin and I wasn’t about to pay that price […]

Fun Easter Idea/Tradition – Magic Jelly Bean Seeds

| April 3, 2012 | 0 Comments

I found this idea right AFTER Easter last year…of course!  So I’ve waited a whole year to do it and I can’t wait to see the expression on my 3 (almost 4!) year old’s face when she sees the magical transformation of these jelly beans.  If you own a silhouette, this is literally a 5 […]

St. Patrick's Day Treat and Printable - Leprechaun Munch

I have to say, this treat turned out so tasty.  It was a total experiment and we loved the result–the combination of mint and chocolate with a little salty crunch was just right.  Pretty much all of our supplies came from one of our favorite local kitchen stores, Orson Gygi.  You can order supplies from […]

Large Scale Pottery Barn Inspired Mirror

Remember this post?  Here is what the finished product looks like.   It was a bit of a process to make but I love the finished product.  $15 dollars in mirrors (8 1/2 x 11)  from the dollar store and and another $45 or so in materials (molding, plywood backing, glue, paint, hanging materials etc.).

Meet Carameled Frapplestein

He’s a pretty dapper not-so-scary kind of dude.  We like carameled apples around here, but they taste excessively sweet to me when fully drenched in caramel.  So this was a good compromise. Here’s how we made him: Hair:  Caramel and miniature chocolate chips.  Use good caramel like the one sold here (great tips for carameled […]

Modern Chic Tiered Serving Tray

I entered this in Studio Five’s $5 Craft Challenge today.  It was so fun to make and turned out so cute that I want to make many, many more.  So if you receive one as a gift…..  My favorite part about this project is it’s versatility.  The components dis-assemble so that you can 1) store […]

Favorite Find-Mirrors

Found these at the dollar store today:  8 1/2″ x 11″ mirrors framed in wood…in 4 colors!  My experience with mirrors this size at the dollar store is that they do not last long.  Good luck finding them again if you don’t buy them now. Project Glimpse:  I am going to make a large-scale mirror […]

Favorite Finds-An Explanation

Okay, here’s what I’ve decided.  I keep running into this problem where I buy supplies from a store with a big idea/project in mind and by the time I get around to actually creating that project (for numerous reasons), it is irrelevant for you because the supplies are wiped out or no longer available.  So […]

Heart Hands

So this should have been a Valentine post, but I was so overwhelmed with moving at the time that I was lucky just to get the shot and get a few cards off to grandma and gramps.  Little K did NOT want to do the picture and we pretty much forced her hand in right […]
