Candlelit Stairs

These Mason Jars have come in so handy this season....

Handcrafted Wedding Gift

One of my good client/friend wanted a couple of special wedding gifts for her friends that were getting married.

{ More Moss Love }

I'm loving little moss projects:








Then I added a hanging pinecone - much more "earthy" & interesting.






Drab to Fab Gift

I was at the craft store the other day and a lady was looking at these candles that were
 3 for $10 or something ridiculously cheap.
She said - "Oh, these make the best teacher gifts."
So that's fine - you don't have to spend much on teachers for sure.
I think they are appreciative of anything from their students.
But here's a way to make that $3.50
candle look a whole lot more special.

I Do Clean My Kitchen

HOLY COW!!!

Nothing motivates me to clean my house more than getting caught with it a "freaking" mess!

Tree of Memories

Our Family Christmas Tree 2011...

This tree has ornaments from when I was a little girl.
My grandmother let all the grand kids pick out an ornament every Thanksgiving so we could build up a nice collection for when we had our own tree to decorate.

Cute "free" Winter Decor


I had rescued some old windows and wood pallets a couple of weeks ago.
I had them all laying against my garage door in the front driveway.

recycled wood ornaments

I make home accents using new and reclaimed wood.  Last year as I was cleaning out my garage I came upon lots of little wood pieces that I couldn't throw out or burn.
So I made these little Christmas decorations with all that scrap wood.
I cut the wood into squares or rectangles and brushed a bit of cream paint on them (not so neatly).
Sanded them a bit on the edges & printed the holiday words with my cricut.
Once the words were placed I brushed mod podge over them.
