• Better than Fruitcake Bark

    November 28, 2017

    So the other day I get this hankering for something sweet. I keep waffling between fruity or chocolate-y and I decide I’m going to totally go dip a whole bunch of gummy bears in melted milk chocolate.

    I have no patience. Like, none. So after I asked Rob for the fifth or sixth time to get the Christmas tree down from the attic for me to be put off for another day I decided to take matters into my own hands. Never mind that I’m stupid accident prone and scared to death…

    The other day Rob and I went to The Dollar Tree so that we could grab some items not in my craft stash for my frugal Christmas crafting challenge I’ve created for myself. The goal is, in a nut shell, to not spend much, if any, money for the vast array of Christmas ornaments and decor…

  • Colorful DIY Christmas Trees on Stands

    November 10, 2017

    The other day I found online one of those pretty pink Christmas trees and I really, REALLY wanted to get it. But in the end I decided that I have more than enough Christmas trees and, though on sale, it was still an unecessary expense. Boy do I hate the reasonable side of myself sometimes…

    I love things that are larger than life. Give me a novelty jumbo pencil and I’m going to write that sucker down to a nib. Make me the biggest burger in The City and I’m going to do my best to take it out… well, I would back when I didn’t know that I wasn’t…

    December 14, 2016

    When you start making Christmas decor, it’s kind of hard to stop. There is always something you want to add: some garlands across the house, some lighting on the front porch! I wanted some funny gnomes to display on the chimney! I made this pair of gnomes in no time. You can use some scrap…

    December 8, 2016

    I remember when I was a kid my mom bringing out tons of little silver pins, colorful little beads, gorgeous and sparkly sequins and tons and tons of foam balls. You see I’ve always enjoyed making as has my mother and sister. Even when I was itty bitty I was a maker. Remembering these fun…
