Goodwill strikes again. I saw an old globe, and knew I had to have it. I had no clue what I would do with it at the time, but I just had a sneaking suspicion I could do something, so I snatched it up. It was full of rhinestones. One can only guess what they […]

Artwork…we haz it. Everywhere. Now that Tot is in preschool (the real deal, not “pre-preschool”) she comes home with a masterpiece almost every time. And boy is she proud to show it off. And who could blame her? What child wouldn’t be proud to show off a pumpkin such as this? Okay to be fair, […]

The meat and potatoes of the project! Two days ago, I purchased my supplies, which was an adventure in and of itself. Yesterday I did a lot of the dirty work…or so I thought. Yesterday was a BREEZE compared to today. But that’s okay. Today I painted the area. That’s pretty obvious, so I won’t […]

Who needs a hero? Well, I mean, I like the one I got. He’s pretty cute and I enjoy his company and he’s funny sometimes when he’s not asking for a wrench when he means pliers…but that’s not the point. The point is, Hubs is out of town, and I decided it was time to […]

How about some progress? Through the magic of TV (okay, blogging) there’s been a lot of progress since I posted those “Before” pictures last week. Don’t remember those? Oh, here you go… Go forth and bask in the 1980s awesomeness. But for the purpose of this update, we are focusing on the living room. Here’s […]

I’ll get to the title in a minute. But first, allow me to set this up for you. My parents’ neighborhood holds a huge community garage sale every year. This year, since we moved into a new house, we had a lot of stuff to get rid of. Moving, in case you didn’t know this, […]

You read that right. Cake balls. It probably brings to mind that one SNL skit from forever ago with Alec Baldwin. But not quite the same. But Cake Pops are sweeping the nation (did you know you could order a cake pop at Starbucks??) I decided to try my hand at these delicious new treats. […]

I’ve got a toddler of the female variety. Along with the fussiness, the frivolity and the fun, little girls come with a lot of STUFF! And it’s the most ridiculously adorable stuff ever…at least most of the time. But what I’m tackling today is the issue of hair accessories. Hair ties, hair bows, hair bands, […]

Yet another post about my Goodwill treasures I’d found. I’m turning into quite the crafter these days! Can you believe it? Neither can I. But there it is. This “treasure” was also purchased the same time I bought the duck-painting-turned-chalkboard. And I have to say, it was much easier than the chalkboard. Not that the […]

Another blog I follow issued a challenge to tackle a small project and make it pretty. While often times her blog focuses on large projects, like organizing an entire playroom or kitchen drawers. But this challenge was issued to her followers: take a small project and finish it. Even something as simple as covering a […]
