• Free Christmas Stocking Pattern – Flamingo

    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…

  • Aggie’s Turkey, Oatmeal and Yam Dog Food

    November 8, 2012

    I’ve made comments before on this blog that I make my own dog food. Cris asked if I could share some recipes. Since I’ve gotten to the point where I kind go by memory, I’ll have to share the recipes as I actually make them so I can measure things out. The first is Aggie’s…

  • Pattern Your Walls for a Subtle Change

    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…

    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…

  • Repurposed Lace Scrap Tennies

    October 16, 2012

    If there is one thing crafting does, it is make waste. We cut away at fabric, foam and the like to get the shape or area that we need. While sometimes the rest is still useable, it is often trash. One of the scrap items I have been accumulating are lace scraps. Maybe I cut…
