    November 16, 2012

    Today we’re going to make some simple, faux snowy pinecones! I have set a fairly weighty task for myself this year.

    November 15, 2012

    Last year I decided that it was high time I made stockings for my family. Unfortunately I started the second week of December and didn’t exactly make the deadline and only finished up 5 out 10. The completed ones went into a paper bag and tossed into the craft closet to come out another day.…

    I don’t know how many times I have walked past the gorgeous little bottles of liquid gilding at the hobby store. Every time I considered buying it. Sometimes it even made its way into my cart. But for some reason it always wound up not being included in my bag as I walked out of…

    November 8, 2012

    First of all, so sorry for the delayed Shoesday. I’ve had some fellas on my roof this morning and if I feel weird taking pictures of my feet in front of the neighbors it is ten times worse in front of total strangers looking down on me. Literally. So, I had to wait until they…

    I’ve been very vocal about my love for kitties. There are four living in my home, Liddy, Marla, Gracie and Max and I have been caring for a feral fella that has started stopping by my home. I’ve named him Oleg and I’m trying to find him a good home. He is adorable! I don’t…

  • Glittery eek Wreath DIY

    October 18, 2012

    There are three ways that I can think of to go with Halloween decor. There is the bloody, gory gross way which is totally not my style. There is the dark and macabre style which I like and employ. Lastly, there is the cute, glitzy glam type of decor that I also dig. This tutorial…
