Katie’s Room Re-do

Monday, July 6th, 2015

So, Katie’s room was totally overdue for a bit of an upgrade. She was still using left-over bedding from the days when she shared the room with her adult sister. And her tastes had changed. Let’s face it, she’s more the girly-girl than Stephanie and I are. And along the way, I got the brilliant […]

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 […]

TUTORIAL: Pillow Covers From Placemats (No sew)

Monday, June 11th, 2012

So, we recently bought this wonderful new leather sofa for our living room.  I adore it, but the pillows were horrible.  They’re some sort of dreadful burgundy and tan mock damask and the fringe at the edges sheds all over our home on a daily basis.  I wanted some new pillows that were more in […]

Pantry Organization and Re-do: Done!

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

When we first moved into this house a year ago, we came bearing trunk-loads of food, frozen items, and appliances.  We were anxious to get everything stored (somewhere) and get on with the business of living in our brand new home.  As a result, everything got shoved into the area where it sort of belonged, […]

Neat Dot Picture Redux — With Tutorial

Monday, January 9th, 2012

So, I found this awesome tut through Pinterest.  It’s a rather modern art piece, simply made by any of us and quite stunning.  You can find the original here: Two Girls Being Crafty. It occurred to me while I was looking at it that it would be a little difficult for a young child to […]

How I Spent My Christmas Vacation

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

Well, another year has come and gone.  The decorations are put away….mostly.  And the kids are back in school.  Katie gets three weeks for Christmas vacation, so there was a lot of time to spend shopping and crafting.  We made sparkly snow playdough and cinnamon ornaments.  We made fudge and egg nog.  And we spent […]

Home Organization Tip #2

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Use gift bags to store items. Gift bags come in every size, color and design imaginable.  You can find them at the dollar store for as little as 50 cents.  They are large, beautiful, and require no effort to look nice.  Painting boxes or covering them with scrapbook paper takes a bit of time and […]
