Homemade Bathroom Cleaner


So, my bathrooms are dirty- really, really dirty. But, hey I've been pregnant for 9 months and then had surgery. My hubby is a great helper, but a shower scrubber, he is not. I started to clean my bathrooms and realized that I was out of bathroom cleaner. What's a girl to do??? A friend of mine from facebook suggested I try making my own homemade … [Read more...]

Crocheted Headband


So, while reading up on my crafty blog list I came across this knotted headband tutorial. I am just learning to crochet, but this is simple enough that I could pull it off. Mine is def. not as good as the original, but I love it. Here's how it went down... I made the two chains in the lengths that the tutorial mentioned (300 and 160). Laid them … [Read more...]

Simple Spring Wreaths


So, I'm totally skipping St. Patrick's Day as a crafter and going straight on to Easter. I wouldn't really consider these "Easter Wreaths", just more "springy" ones. So, here goes. I made two wreaths this week, one simple one and one that I am going to call "spunky". The first thing I started with was a trip to the Dollar Tree...who doesn't … [Read more...]

First up- in case you didn't already see my Pink Plaid Rosettes...     I've also been making some simple little flowers out of circles of old material that I've got.

Valentine’s Gift for my Man


So like all men, my adorable hubby is super hard to buy for. He's not really a card guy either, but I always get him one anyway. I figured this year, I'd make him something more personal than just buying him some chocolate that I would probably just eat anyway. I love those little collections of "Love Coupons" you can buy- but they go for up to … [Read more...]

Pink Plaid Rosettes


So, hubby has been working on the bathroom today, so I had to occupy myself somehow. I've been learning how to make fabric rosettes from some really cool blogs so I thought I'd give it a try! I started with an old belt- you know those kinds that come with jeans or shorts, but never quite look right when you actually wear them? I cut it apart … [Read more...]

…Brownies in a Jar!


So, as a gift for a few of my friends and family, I decided to make something cute, and yummy! I got the recipe for the Brownies in a jar, and looked up a few others...soup in a jar, etc. I picked up some adorable Christmas-y jars at the dollar tree, added another dollar tree find- a double ended spatula, and voila! Yummy goodness! I had … [Read more...]

My Placemat Throw Pillow….


So, I've seen around blogland that people were creating some cute lil throw pillows out of placemats- and I thought, "Even I can do that!" Hee hee...so I did! I'm not going to show a tutorial, because my camera was dying, and it was pretty self explainatory. Basically, I took a placemat that was already backed, that I picked up from Wally … [Read more...]

…my lil “beaded tree”


<Note: Notice how much better camera resolutions have gotten over the years, because these pics are terrible!> So, the other "tree" I posted in my last post was a "beaded tree". I got the idea here: Tree! Here's how I made mine...I will mention beforehand that I really like my ribbon tree a lot better, and the blog who I got the idea … [Read more...]

…my lil ribbon tree!


I was looking for some cute decor ideas for Christmas and I came across this one here: Ribbon Trees. I ran with the idea and I came up with one of my own... I started with these materials:  A foam "tree"    Some cute Holiday-y ribbon   and my handy-dandy pink glue gun. (Notice how it's covered in hot glue- as are my … [Read more...]
