• DIY leather plant hanger

    March 25, 2016

    The coming of spring makes me want gardening. I keep working in the backyard, but I also want to take care of the house plants. I get some new planters, and I wanted a plant hanger for a little mint plant. So I came up with an easy idea, adaptable at different plant pot sizes.…

  • How to make a cardboard frame

    February 26, 2016

    A frame is the most classical way to decorate and it’s still the best option to highlight a nice picture or drawing. Unfortunately it’s quite expensive, especially if you need a large format with specific dimensions. Thrift stores can be a good option. And if you can not find the frame you need, you will…

    Rob and I have gotten to where we go to the flea markets an awful lot. We actually went 2 days in a row to 2 different ones a few weeks ago, largely so that we can work on better socializing Ollie with strangers. You see he’s always a bit wary of new people and…

  • DIY Marbled IKEA Vilmar Chair

    February 15, 2016

    I absolutely love IKEA and I can spend ages in there. So can my Momma and so can Rob. Which means last visit to Houston we went to IKEA not once, but twice over, like, 5 days. And one of those days we were there enough hours that we could have clocked in like a…

  • Homemade Orange Oil

    February 7, 2016

    It’s pretty dang neat but oranges actually grow here. And lemons and limes and all of that jazz does really well here, too. There are these little oranges that you can get at the store for like 8 for $1 and Rob and I have been going nuts on them. We’re also getting after blood…

    The master bedroom is coming along quite nicely. I’m super stoked about how well everything is fitting together, including my DIY creations. Not too terribly long ago I shared with you a wood shim starburst mirror I made and hung in the bedroom… See on the very far left of that pic? That’s my empty…

    January 30, 2016

      In this big ol’ head of mine I have SO many crafty ideas for things to make and do in 2016. I literally have a notebook with about 10 pages with 32 items apiece of ideas for projects I consider “active”. In fact, I’ve already been crafting for Christmas 2016 and it’s still January…

    January 24, 2016

    So Mr. Rob has been cooking up a storm, lately. He’s a big fan of skillet meals so he often brings the cast iron skillet over to the table and we can get more as needed and it stays hot. It’s pretty smart, really. When I cook I dirty up a bazillion pots and pans…

  • $6 Throw Ladder for Beginners

    January 22, 2016

    Right now I’m all about 2 things. Feathering this nest. Using the mitre saw Rob bought. Well, technically I’m all about Rob using the mitre saw for me and since I’m as clumsy as they come. It seems better to watch him cut my boards for me for a weensy bit longer before I get…
