• 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…

  • A Citrus Christmas – a Duo of Orange DIYs

    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.

  • 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…

  • Christmas Lights Wallpaper

    December 5, 2012

    I may have mentioned it before, but I kind of sort of have an attention problem. You wonder what kind of person makes 5-10 crafts a week? One who can’t keep still. So last night I was watching a movie and trying my darndest to JUST watch a movie. It didn’t exactly work out. I…

  • Hide Your Christmas Tree Base with a Gift!

    December 3, 2012

    I have tree skirts out the wazoo… seriously. Probably because every other year or so I decide to change the direction of my Christmas decor drastically.
