I know you. You're that woman (exactly like myself) who loves being crafty, but who sometimes just doesn't have the energy, the time, or the muscles to lug out her beefy sewing machine.  Or maybe you're terrified of sewing machines.  Or needles for that matter. No biggie...you can still create some (50 to be exact) gorgeous handmade items...

My home decorating style and interests are always changing and evolving. I try to buy classic pieces that I know I will love for a long time, but I also like to throw in something trendy and spunky- particularly on the more inexpensive side. A lamp can be the perfect finishing touch to a room, and it's even better when that little lamp can make...

My daughter has been chomping at the bit to learn how to sew. I think I was a little intimidated (remembering back to how many times I messed up my mom's machine when she taught me so many years ago) so I kept putting it off. It seemed like a much better summer activity and when summer finally rolled around she was more than excited to get...

It's been a hot summer here in the northwest. The days have been blistering hot, and although it's mostly dry heat, I sometimes feel like I'm going to melt into a puddle on the sidewalk. Something that always gets me in the summer is getting ready for the day. I love a really hot shower, but in the hot months I try and change to a more tepid...

You guys, I am totally having an Anna (from Frozen) moment lately. "The sky's awake, so I'm awake so we have to get up!" I totally feel your pain, Anna. While the curtains in my bedroom are dark and don't let much sunlight in, our pesky garage door is totally messing with me this summer. The sun comes up EARLY in the summertime and with the way...

I've had a bit of a love affair with leather lately. The wonderful thing about it is, there are so many different textures, thicknesses, and colors, and the applications are endless. Lucky for me, my dad is a hunter, going to South Africa every year and also hunting buffalo, deer, and elk closer to home. He gave me a few tanned hides, and I got...

  First off, to say that this is an easy tutorial would be the understatement of the year. However, I felt like it was a necessary tutorial to write because sometimes you just need to run across a simple idea and think 'hello??? Why haven't I done this already?!' So let's talk about why these are a good idea, shall we? So, my girls...

Ok, guys! I need to tell a little back story so you can see where the idea of the tooth fairy pillow came from. My little girl is 5 and she's full blast 24/7. She's loud, stomps around the house, can't play hide and seek because she's too loud - get the picture? She is a LOUD child....until bedtime. Then she turns into a silent ninja. She can...
