This, my friends, is one of the craziest/coolest things I've seen in a very long time. The delicate rose pictured above looks like it's made of porcelain, right? Of course it's NOT porcelain. Can you guess what it IS made of? Continue Reading
It is my daughter's birthday on Friday, and I'm in party mode. Since I do parties as simply as possible- usually with only a few balloons as decorations- this super easy DIY made me consider stepping out of my "If-I-Decorate-I'll-Have-To-Clean-It" self and branch out a little more this time around. The good news is, you can just fold it up and put it away for the next celebration that comes around. That's my kind of party. Continue Reading
I wanted to say something about this fleece "hot water bottle" giving you warm fuzzies, but I just couldn't. Or could I? Oh snap, I just did. Now that that terrible pun is purged from my system, let's get on with this heart-warming how-to. (I'm so sorry, I can't stop.) Continue Reading
Advent calenders are sooo last season. Beckie used her Silhouette machine to create the lettering for her Valentine's Day Countdown project, BUT Say it on the Wall now offers the vinyl for a schmeezily $8.50.

We'd make glitter and puff paint-covered Valentine holders in school from paper plates folded in half (classy), which would inevitably reach "maximum candy capacity" and burst open halfway through my walk home from school. Sad times. But this isn't a sad post! We're talking about Valentine's Day mailboxes, people! That's some happy stuff. Continue Reading
Nothing like a little skin pampering mid-winter, I say! At least in these parts--surely I'm not the only one whose hands appear a bit, um, "mummy-like" this time of year, right? Best treat those puppies right with a nice homemade, all-natural citrus scrub! Continue Reading
With this creative DIY idea, Jen Morris may just receive this year's Coolest Mom Award. Going off of her son's doodles and drawings, she created this incredibly unique (and totally awesome) custom "monster" duvet cover!
The closet in our spare bedroom is huge- it takes up an entire wall (which is terrible for furniture arranging, let me tell ya)! Unfortunately, it only has one dinky wire shelf inside, which means all my c-r-a-p is simply piled on top of itself and lacks any rhyme or reason at all. I'm thinking a simple DIY shelving system would be the answer. Continue Reading
