Halloween Burlap Table Runner

I’m in full Halloween mode here at my house and I don’t mess around. It took everything in me not to deck out our entire house with pumpkins and Halloween decorations once September first rolled around (not joking). I did however wait until the season officially changed to deck out the house and get cracking […]

DIY Pom Pom Table Runner & Placemats

My obsession with pom poms started a few years ago when I decided to put them on top of presents. I’ve been seeing them more lately, mostly in the home decor arena. Pillows, throw blankets, curtains, kitchen towels – all covered in pom poms. Sometimes I almost can’t handle the cuteness. That’s when I knew […]

Easy Cake Decorating

I’ve always been big on birthday cakes for family and friends. I used to bake a cake for every friend on their special day, during my college years. I never really decorated it, just did a fancy swooshing number with the frosting to make it look extra special. Now, as a wife and mother of […]

Pastel Vases, Upcycled

Cork Succulent

  My good friend and crafting buddy, Monica, graciously offered to contribute a few guest posts this month while we adjust to baby #2. She’s a lawyer by day, craft extraordinaire by night. She’s the whole package people. Post and photo cred go to her. I was searching for a quick idea for small Valentine’s […]

Fabric Lined Envelopes & Cards

I made these fabric cards a couple of weeks ago with the intent of sending them to family and friends before Valentine’s Day. I loved the idea of them so much I plan on making a few sets as “Thank You” cards and note cards to send out throughout the year. With the scraps of […]

Valentine’s Day Treats & Crafts List

February is here and I’m still in denial. We have a fresh two week old baby and a two and a half year old toddler in our house – time, days, hours, minutes, have all been a blur. Our plans for Valentine’s Day will most likely be at home, with our little family. I thought […]

Homemade Vanilla Extract Kit

If you’re still looking for a fun and inexpensive gift idea for a friend, especially a friend who loves to bake, make them a Homemade Vanilla Extract Kit. It couldn’t be easier to throw together. All you’ll need is a bottle with a nice secure top. I found these glass bottles with a rubber top […]

Felt Bows

Last year it was pom pom bows. This year it’s all about felted bows. I’m obsessed with them and that might be an understatement. They come together rather quickly for the perfect topper for presents. Here’s what you’ll need to get started: 8″x 11″ Sheets of colored felt (the heavier the felt, the sturdier the […]
