Simple Egg Carton Snowflakes


Ahhhh, winter time. It’s the time of year when we are torn between hibernating and tackling stuff like crazy. I’m also always torn between decorating for Valentine’s Day or decorating with snowflakes. I guess both would be cute together, but after the décor-overload of Christmas, I like to take a break from holiday décor. We usually go through about 3-4 cartons of eggs a week and I was looking at … [Read more...]

Milk Cap Glitter Spiders


I love these little spiders, they make me happy inside. I don’t typically do Halloween decor. I’m lucky to get fall stuff up and blogged. Cause every year it’s the same craziness: you have fall décor that goes up when it’s still hot out. Then you put up some Halloween, and BAM, BIG HOLIDAY! Then you take it down and put up some more fall, then BAM, another BIG HOLIDAY! Then it’s Christmas. BAM … [Read more...]

Anthropologie Inspired Lattice Tank Top


I’ve painted a lot of stuff over the years. The shutters for our home, many lamps, a box fan, frames, pillows (here and here), furniture, light fixtures. Everything. You name it, I’ve painted it. But I never change clothes when painting. It’s a bad habit that has left me with many good paint clothes. Yoga paints, freshly painted nails, shoes, shirts, my feet, my wedding ring, it’s all met the … [Read more...]

Yoga Cutoff Shorts


I’ve got good news and bad news. Good news: After having Adam, I lost a lot of weight and went from a 10 to a 4/5. Bad news: I have no shorts that fit. Good news: I have no shorts that fit and I need to go shopping. I do have a lot of yoga capris, which now look like weird baggy gauchos on me. Why not make some yoga shorts? I grabbed some fabric scissors, eyeballed it, and cut them … [Read more...]

Repurposed Melissa & Doug Puzzle Trays

I love Melissa & Doug toys, don’t you? I guess my kids think they’re okay, but I LOVE them.Something about the wooden-ness of the toys, it brings back a nostalgic feeling similar to the one I get from Lincoln Logs. That and the fact that I ALWAYS find them at garage sales! I think I’ve bought one or two brand new, of course those are the one or two that are now chewed up, gross, and missing … [Read more...]

47 Bags, Still Cleaning

Thanks for all your prayers! My mom’s surgery went well (about as good as it could have gone) and the doctors are confident that they fixed everything. My mom feels a lot better and is doing great. :) Yep, I added ‘em all up and I got 47. Plus 7 large pieces of furniture (still waiting on people to want my bed, haha). You would think I would be totally stoked and happy to be free of the clutter, … [Read more...]

Halloween VHS Tape Wreath

Ahhh, VHS tapes. The bulky dinosaur of technology. I’m sure you have a pile of them sitting in a basement, box, or maybe still next to your TV. We have VHS tapes and we don't even (nor have we ever) have a VHS player. They're plentiful. The tape is shiny. So I’ve been trying to rack my brain to see if there was a way to craft with VHS tapes. I took a VHS tape, dollar store wreath form, and … [Read more...]
