Peace on Earth DIY ornaments

This project originally appeared on Design Dazzle as part of their Christmas Wonderful series. I’m happy to share it here with you now! I have been wanting to do a Christmas focused on “Peace on Earth” and “Joy to the World” for a while now and have been collecting ideas on my Pinterest board. These DIY […]

Office Area Makeover with Create-ologie

We have lived in our current home for five years now, and while I have had some grand schemes for my master bedroom, it has just not been high enough on the priority list to receive much attention until now. I’m not usually a big fan of office space in a bedroom, but it became […]

Virtual Family Room Focal Wall

There are a few spots in my house that have been long due for a makeover, but busyness and indecision have kept them at a standstill. I got the opportunity to test out Olympic Paint’s ColorClix suite app that allows you to upload and virtually “paint” a room from your own home and see what […]

Colorful Office Chair Makeover

I am so excited to be able to show you the office chair we made-over! Not just because I think it is so fresh and fun, but because it means it is finally finished! This is a makeover that honestly was begun about a year ago when my parents were visiting. A number of delays, […]

How to Stencil a Wall (the crazy way)

I have a breather from major holidays and birthdays for a little bit and my focus is returning to my poor neglected home. I am on a quest to bring some much needed order to it. Next week I will begin a series designed to help motivate and inspire me and others like me to […]

Martha Stewart Christmas Mug

It was a happy day a few weeks ago when I opened up a box of Martha Stewart Crafts line of paints and goodies from the folks at Plaid. You might say Christmas came a little early for me this year! Among the goodness in the box were bottles of beautiful colors of satin, pearl and […]

Elmer’s Craft and Tell Party- Father’s Day Crafting

I was fortunate enough to be asked to host an Elmer’s “Craft and Tell” party this month. They sent me a box loaded to gills with all kinds of crafting tools and goodies! My instructions were to CRAFT and then TELL you about it. (Well there were a few more instructions than that, but you get the […]

My Advent Calendar

  Ready or not, Christmas really is coming!  And as my children beg each day to open their presents that we brought back from their grandparents in Utah, I am reminded of why someone came up with the idea of an advent calendar in the first place.  If you are thinking about putting one together, […]

Lovely Lamp

Do you remember when I went to the Arizona Tour de Thrift a couple of months ago?  Well I picked up this lovely lamp at Goodwill that day.  It was in great shape, and wasn’t really in need of a makeover, but when I put it in the girls room, it became obvious that the […]

Spray Paint Project Flashback–Painted Lunch Pail

One more quick paint project from the past! This was one of my first real spray painting projects, a few years back for my son’s 3rd birthday.  I was so impressed with the power of the paint! I had a vision to make lunch pails as favors, and serve-ware for the construction-themed party.  Any pails that were […]
