While we enjoy a movie and popcorn as much as the next family, I am always looking for something else. When I saw this brilliant idea from my sister, I knew I had to try it out. She bought a large piece of...

Sunburst frames and mirrors are popping up all over home decor lately. It gives a bit of a mid century, classic feel with a touch of modern thrown in. Recently, I saw one made from thin metal pipes, but it was heavy and rather pricey. After some study and consideration, I decided I could make my own using the humble drinking straw, and this is...

I love Valentine's Day. Of course I think love is great and should be celebrated, but the decorations are what really get me. Hearts, kisses, pink, red- it's wonderful in any combination. I wanted to add a cute and classy decoration to my collection, and this year I decided to do something I could re-vamp or redo for another holiday. I'm a big...

As soon as September rolls around, I get out my fall decor. I love all the orange, yellow, gold, and the richness of fall colors. After Halloween, I'm sort of burnt out sometimes, but a week or two goes by and I'm ready for some fun Thanksgiving crafting. Because Thanksgiving is a holiday that usually involves a large meal with many people,...

Roughly six months ago, a delightful baby boy came into my life. The occasional spit up soiled his clean layette sets, but a quick wipe and we were good. Then four moths rolled around, and the drool began. I'm not talking about your slobbery-kiss baby, I'm talking about the soaked shirt, pouring from the mouth, pretty much water-type drool ALL THE...

Confession: I am a serial plant killer. Flowers, ferns, vegetables, and even succulents die under my care. Over-watering, under-watering, too much sun, not enough sun - I just can't get it right! A few weeks ago, when my latest Jade plant died after a year and a half of suffering, I started to look for my next victim. A friend suggested...
