• DIY No Sew Beach Blanket in a Bag

    August 6, 2016

    Beach days are my favorite days. I love everything but walking in really loose sand which makes me feel like an uncoordinated clod. As I sling sand everywhere I watch other people seemingly glide across the sand in comparison. But there I am kicking up sand, flinging it up into my shorts off of the backs of my…

  • Concrete Yard Word Art

    July 19, 2016

    So I had this big idea that I was going to start making lots of stuff of all sort of colors to go into my Momma’s backyard. You see she loves color. My dad, well, not so much, but he just wants my mom to be happy. So I made her a dragonfly out of…

    July 15, 2016

    This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #BringTheTropicsHome #CollectiveBias Flat out, it’s been a crazy 2 weeks. I’ve been both travelling and ill (not a combination I’d recommend, by the by) and we wound up getting home FOUR days late. There is a huge part of…

    June 10, 2016

    I love playing games to the point that I tend to annoy people asking them if they will play with me. Oddly enough Rob also loves games but we haven’t played anything together, yet. We keep saying we will and meaning to but it just doesn’t work out. One of the things we do find…

    June 8, 2016

    Ollie loves being outside. In fact, he’s been a big fan of the outdoors ever since I got him. I got him just a few weeks before Christmas and while it was still pleasant outside he would lay underneath the big pine by the fence hiding out to bark and scare the dickens out of…

  • Mason Jar Citronella Torches

    April 27, 2016

    So I  like it outside and all but it is HOT, HOT, HOT down  here after it’s rained a bit. It’s that awful, makes you want to melt, hanging around in a cloud of your own sticky sweat humid kind of a heat and it is nasty. It’s like when you open that dishwasher when…

  • DIY Tie Dye Beach Towel

    August 21, 2015

    Life has been so crazy busy. It seems the last few months have been about DIY fixing up a house I won’t be living in anymore, finding a new place to live, visiting family before I move far, far away and trying to get work done. Seriously… it’s absolutely been insane! And when things get…

  • Hanging Mason Jar Fourth of July Luminaries

    June 27, 2015

    So I saw on Pinterest a Fourth of July crafting idea I thought was neat enough that I was going to use it for myself as is.  But unfortunately it didn’t look quite as good as in the photographs. I went to the store and spent more money than I should have on little American…
