How to convert a cheap pre-fab bookcase into a stylish headboard

Monday, August 12th, 2013

So, I had just finished the total redesign of our guest room and I was pretty happy with the results. But I didn’t have a headboard for the queen bed in there. What I DID have, however, was an old, cheap bookcase that I had bought from Walmart about 15 years ago. Here it is […]

Easter Subway Art and Fave Colorful Spring Crafts Blog Hop

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

As always, I’m a little late to the party.  But having finally gotten my Easter groove back, I managed to complete a thing or two.  Today, it was a colorful, happy bit of Easter subway art.  You can download it and print it to your heart’s content.  As soon as I can get to Office […]

The Best of Easter

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

I don’t often post info on other people’s tutorials and DIYs.  But I was cruising Pinterest looking for some new ideas for Easter, and I just couldn’t let them go without sharing.  Inexplicably, I’m feeling a total lack of inspiration this year.  I’m just not into the whole Easter experience.  If you’re finding it hard […]

Scrapbooking Catch-up

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Most people know this about me.  I’m a huge procrastinator at heart.  I try hard not to be, but the urge to just wait one more day overcomes me.  Then there are the distractions: facebook, pinterest, games and TV.  All of this came together (along with moving and misplacing things) to keep me from scrapbooking […]

Leno vs Conan vs NBC vs the audience

Saturday, January 16th, 2010

I’ve been watching The Tonight Show since Carson was in charge.  I loved Johnny Carson and when he retired, I figured the show for a goner.  I didn’t want to watch a new host, not even Jay Leno.  It’s the Star Trek TOS vs TNG battle all over again.  In the end, Leno won me […]

Indian Summer Festival

Saturday, September 12th, 2009

I hate living in my town.  For those of you who don’t know, I live in a tiny place called Hertford, North Carolina.  It was founded some 400 years ago and it hasn’t progressed any since.  It’s about as backward a place as you could ever find in this country, reminiscent of days gone by.  […]

Product review: Purex 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

These days, I don’t often find things that impress me.  Heck, for the most part, America is falling apart.  Juice pouches are springing leaks in the box, my Kleenex tissues are noticeably thinner, and the stupid water bottles are so thin they might as well BE Kleenex. A month ago, I saw the commercial for […]

Playing with images

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

I’ve been downloading some more plugins, some brushes and filters.  I like to play with images.  There are hundreds of great tutorials on the net and I found a few awesome ones to do so that I could practice my skills and learn what the different effects do.  Here are some of the results.  The […]

Off to the beach

Friday, August 14th, 2009

Since my oldest daughter is leaving for college next Thursday and my youngest daughter starts K5 six days after that, we decided to go to the beach.  The little one had never been, I hadn’t been in about 20 years.  So, on Monday, David stayed home from work, we packed all our gear into the […]

New Tutorials added

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

I guess I’m on a roll.  *LOL*  If you go to the PSP tutorials page, you’ll find that I’ve put in two new tutorials: one for a nice piece of rope, and another for a sweet gingham.  Hopefully, in the days to come, I’ll be putting up a plaid tutorial and perhaps even a few […]
