• 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.…

  • Pattern Your Walls for a Subtle Change

    November 1, 2012

    Not gonna lie. This project takes time. I taped off my walls for almost 4 days before I began painting. Now that wasn’t 4 days straight, by any means, but still… before I started on day 3 I was pretty darn sick of the whole thing. But, if I had it to do all over…

    October 25, 2012

    My dad is a veritable wealth of handyman knowledge. His dad, my Pop, was a builder. Since kids are always free labor my dad got to spend a lot of his free time helping Pop build houses. His formative years were filled with saws and hammers and he’s got mad handy skills coming out of…

    October 23, 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…

    My personal style is all over the place all of the time. More often than not I’m sitting here in my office in front of my computer screen by myself. Fashion and appearance doesn’t exactly come into play then, but I’ve decided to try and make an effort and dress nicely. That includes putting some…

  • Granny Squares Step by Step!

    September 27, 2012

    When I was still pretty small, my Mimmie taught me how to crochet. She was constantly knocking out afghan after afghan if she wasn’t quilting and I watched them constantly being made. Being a nosy kind of a kid I wanted to watch what she was doing up close and personal. She wound up busting…

  • Custom Image Jewelry DIY

    September 20, 2012

    For a while now I’ve been seeing pendants that I absolutely love filled with pics of starlets being fabulous. They’ve seemed kind of high to me for what you get, though. So I browsed around on Etsy looking for the supplies to make my own. It turns out that you can make jewelry like the…

  • Done to Death, Newly Corked Table Tops

    September 4, 2012

    About two years ago I went furniture shopping. I found the sofa of my dreams but had the hardest time finding side tables and storage for cds, the archaic medium that they have become. Searching out the decent furniture shops, which are abundant in the Oklahoma City area, by the by, I couldn’t find a…
