• 30 Hardware Helpers for Crafters

    August 22, 2012

    Not so long ago I was one of those crafters who tried to make something work like it was the tool I needed. I wasn’t comfortable going into the hardware store and I didn’t know how to ask for what it was I needed. Imagine every time you needed to unscrew something you had to…

  • Abstract Painted Canvas Slip Ons DIY

    August 21, 2012

    Let’s get this first thing straight. I LOVE Toms and I own several pairs. All of the Toms I own are some of the more toned down patterns: black canvas, navy blue canvas, red canvas, black denim, blue denim, you get the drift. When I saw some super awesome abstract painted (by a real artist!!!)…

  • Tribal Tennies DIY

    August 14, 2012

    I had different plans for this Shoesday, but Saturday night I had a dream about the coolest tennies. They were coral and teal and followed the totally on trend tribal style. Sunday morning I got up, called my mom and grandmother and worked on the shoes while on the phone. Just like that my new favorite…

  • Organize Your Specs – DIY

    August 13, 2012

    My parents gave me a really nice collage frame for Christmas many, many years ago. It’s hung over my fireplace with select family photos ever since. But one day I decided to mix things up over the hearth and it came down. I tried in vain to find a new place in the house for…

  • Succulent Love – Amazing Living Art

    August 2, 2012

    I feel like I’ve moved onto whining, but the high here in my neck of the woods yesterday it was an awful 113 windy degrees. Hanging clothes on the line, the backs of my legs became red and felt burnt. Not from the sun, but the heat being blown right on them. Yuck. It’s so…

  • Dog Feeding Station Tutorial – Pet Furniture

    August 1, 2012

    I love almost all creatures. Just not toads, snakes and frogs. Especially not frogs. They jump AT you. Seriously. There is one that lives by my air conditioner and I am pretty sure it is trying to kill me. I HATE him. Ooh, and bugs suck, too. In spite of my occasional creature aversions, I…

    July 31, 2012

    Crafting is my thing. You may have noticed that I do a LOT of it. Along the way I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks. I never really thought much of it, until I was purchasing a new can of spray adhesive. A lady nearby flatly told me not to buy it. “You won’t…

    July 25, 2012

    Hey there! My very first blog post back in February was for three little finger puppets I made for Easter. I am still a big fan of imaginative play but I just haven’t been making puppets like I used to. I’ve decided it is time to get back into the habit! Since dreaming up characters…

    July 23, 2012

    This Shoesday is a special one! My sister’s birthday is just a few days away and I’m afraid I’m giving away the secret of her present a little early. I’m sure she won’t mind, though! She likes shoes like I like shoes so I pulled a page out of my shoe crafts ideas journal and…

  • From Cardboard to Fun Mod Wall Storage!

    July 23, 2012

    I like to reuse and recycle. I’m hardly the greenest gal you’re going to meet, but I do like to at least try to do my part. So, when Russell brought home a stack approximately 3 foot tall of cardboard “trash” from work I started to think out things I could make. I’m always in…
