Farmers Market Dish Towel DIY

Posted by on Aug 22, 2014 in Be Inspired, Make It | 0 comments

Summer fruit is at its best right now at most farmers markets around the country.  I found some little dishtowels online a few weeks ago that are truly adorable and celebrate summer at the market, but a little more than I wanted to spend at the time. But, you can make these cute little dishtowels that are inspired by the on-line version to help...

THE MIX. {A delicious summer treat}

Posted by on Jul 10, 2014 in Be Inspired, Featured Posts, In The Kitchen, Make It | 0 comments

My friend Tami dubbed this “The Mix,” a few years ago.  It didn’t need a cute name like Puppy Chow or Nuts & Bolts to attract people to it….just calling it what it was…..The Mix…..was good enough.  Kind of like Madonna, Prince, or Cher.  Your kids will love this one and it’s something they can...

Tree Trunk Tray DIY

This DIY was inspired by a key-chain I saw online a few months ago.  I’m pretty happy with how it turned it, how simple it was, and how versatile it is all over my house. I purchased a tree-trunk slice from my grocery store! for about $14.  It’s pretty wide (about 10-12” across) and pretty...

If you want a simple and quick way to add a little Easter whimsy to your table this weekend try these Easter bunny tail napkin rings….or as my five year old calls them…..Bunny Butts.   I bought some extra fuzzy white yarn and then used this method to create pom poms.  I wrapped the yarn around a huge serving fork to...

Fixing Stone Jewelry with Clay

Posted by on Apr 15, 2014 in Be Inspired, Make It | 0 comments

I have a ring that I purchased in Mexico years ago that is probably my most favorite piece of jewelry.  However, sometimes the turquoise stones fall out. And I’m sure we’ve all had this happen one time or another with something we love.  No fear.  My mom taught me a trick years and years ago to fix lost stones in...

Washi Tape Art DIY

In my enduring love affair with washi tape (admit it–you can’t walk by an end cap of the stuff at Target without snagging a new roll to add to your collection) I’m always looking for new things to do with it.  I found a picture in a catalog a few weeks back for over $200 that I instantly knew I could reproduce...

Kid Craft Essentials

I post a lot of DIY’s here on the site as well as my personal blog.  They vary and use a handful of different supplies; supplies that I’ve collected over many years and have a slight addiction to.  But I recognize that not everyone shares my sickness, ahem, hoarding tendencies with craft supplies and often wonder what a good arsenal...
