More T-shirt Patriotism

I have one more 4th of July project that I really wanted to get finished and blog for you, but I’m afraid, it is time for me to walk away from the computer and get packing for my family reunion!  (That project will have to wait until next year, sadly.)  But before I do, my […]

Patriotic Reunion T-shirts

I know.  I’ve been sewing again!  What is the world coming to?  We have a family reunion over the 4th of July weekend.  Each branch of the family is assigned a specific color and our family is blue.  We deliberated about whether to go family or patriotic, and decided to do both.  The H is […]

Patriotic Bandana Tablecloth

This was supposed to be a post showing you a fabulously finished patriotic tablecloth.  Instead, I am posting about exactly 1 half of a fabulous patriotic tablecloth.  My sewing machine and I have some issues–mainly I’m mechanically challenged and little things like changing thread and bobbins slow me down.  I’m sure (once my husband gets […]

Tour de Thrift

Saturday I participated in the first ever Arizona Bloggers Tour de Thrift.  It was a great event conceived of and hosted by Ashley of Cute as a Fox, and Jax from Aly & Ash. A few dozen bloggers, thrifters, and readers of blogs got together for breakfast at Mimi’s Cafe and then went on a […]

Very Little Girl Wall Hangings

I am reposting this to submit to the CSI projects for the week.  Come back soon (tonight?) for my recap of the Tour de Thrift this weekend! I stumbled on a blog that was suggesting that we could make our own canvas wall-hangings for much cheaper than the ones they sell at places like Pottery […]

Happy Father’s Day!

Wishing a Happy Father’s Day to the sweet father of my children, my wonderful Dad, and father-in-law, Granddad, and all of the wonderful men out there who’ve earned the title of  “Dad!” If a Dad (or anyone, for that matter) needs a little encouragement, watch this!

My Pop Rocks!!!

Does yours?  Then tell him with a poppin’ gift basket! This is my final Father’s Day idea post this year, but you still have time to throw this one together, if you hurry. Remember our “She’s About to Pop” baby shower?  We were amazed at the number of things you can find that use the word […]

Super Dad’s Day!

Ever since I first saw these cake pops from Bakerella, a couple of years ago, I’ve thought it would be great to plan an entire Father’s Day around the “Super Dad/ Super Hero” theme. If you think your dad is super, then you’re in luck!  There is tons of inspiration to be found around blog […]


A little of what is going on in my world: 1.  Upcoming Reviews I’m so excited!  I have two big product reviews coming up which are going to enable me to work on and blog about a few big projects around my house.  One review is about paint and the other is from the CSN […]

Hands Down

Thanks to those who have linked up to my Father’s Day Fun linky party!  I still have a few more posts coming this week about Father’s Day, and some of those ideas will be featured!  You can continue to link up all week (I will), but I had to choose my winner today, so I […]
