• Gorgeous Yet Simple Gumdrop Ornaments at Mom Spark!

    November 26, 2013

    Now I’d say for the most part I’m not often proud of myself. That’s not to say that I don’t think that I’m an awesome person who makes awesome things, because I’m rocking quite a bit of self confidence :) but I also know that not everything I do is full on AMAZING. And that’s…

  • 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.…

  • Transfer Images to Wood for Christmas Name Tags or Ornaments DIY

    December 21, 2012

    I love transferring images onto just about anything. Seriously, anything. It’s kind of like my new obsession with liquid gilding. So, Christmas present tags with faces instead of names seemed just the ticket. Good news is I’m the only one in the whole family crazy enough to DIY everything. So guess what, I don’t even…

  • Put a Bird on It! My Finished Tree for 2012

    December 20, 2012

    Not gonna lie… the first time I saw Portlandia I did not care for it. Probably had to do with the fact that I was hacked off in a super major way and in a really bad mood. I think my subconcious wanted to dislike the show simply because the person I was mad at…

    December 17, 2012

    One of the best things about this time of year is the excellent citrus that can be found and I love the implementation of a citrus Christmas. Oranges are my favorite in particular.

  • German Glass Glitter Christmas Ornaments

    December 15, 2012

    When I was a kid, our ornaments included these little, fake, red apples. I really, really liked them. They were nothing fancy. Just fake apples on slight gold string… but for some reason every Christmas I find  myself thinking about them. As an adult, I’m pretty surprised that I never had apple ornaments of my…

  • How to Paint Your Christmas Tree a Different Color Tutorial

    December 7, 2012

    I have had a white Christmas tree ever since I bought this house in 2004 or 2005 or whenever the heck it was. I loved my white tree because it wasn’t exactly the norm back then. Apparently I have a thing about liking things that are “different” and disliking things that are “popular”. Out of…
