  • Owl Be Home for Christmas Freebie!

    December 6, 2013

    Right now my Momma has a major thing for owls. Like BIG time to the point that anytime I see anything owl anywhere I’ll think of her. Which is interesting because every time she sees one she thinks of my Poppa who passed away a year and a half ago. I know that since she…

    December 2, 2013

    I’m one of those weirdos who freaks out when they see candy canes on sale. Like, 6-7 boxes in my cart fa-reeeks! This year when I headed up to check out with my cart o’ canes the cashier actually said “you know we’ll keep selling these ’til a little bit after Christmas, right?” To which…

    November 28, 2013

    To be honest I never thought the day would come… The day I willingly crafted with BURLAP. Now it’s not that I’m a craft snob. You know the type who refuses to craft up something simply because it’s popular. That’s not me. At all. It’s just that burlap is way too rustic in appearance for…

  • Gum Drop Wreath Tutorial

    November 22, 2013

    When I was a kid one of the best things about Christmas was the candy. You see my Mimmie didn’t really let me have any candy and my parents did but they bought the candy they liked in bulk and, as it happened, it was candy I didn’t like. Anybody remember Tart ‘n Tinies? Blech.…
