Pot of Gold for St. Patrick’s

Here’s a quick and fun little idea I did for my hubs this year to celebrate St. Patrick’s day.  (I don’t even think he knows it’s a holiday today :)) The dollar store has these little salsa tubs that are PERFECT for little pots-o-gold or cauldrons (for Halloween).  They come in a two-pack so they […]

I love aprons.  Due to their recent comeback, there are a lot of really fun patterns out now, many are free.  If you want to try your hand at a simple sewing project, an apron is a great place to begin. Here are two different styles of aprons that I have made and love: Apron […]

In our current house, we have giant mirrors above both of our upstairs sinks.  It would cost a fortune to buy a ‘nice’ mirror anywhere close to the right size for the […]

Glass Christmas Frame

It’s the big day…my first post.  It’s taken me 4 months of being too chicken to actually start.  The website is nowhere near ready and I have no idea what I’m doing, but my head is swimming with ideas so I decided that it is time to get er going.  My photography will improve, once […]
