As promised, here’s the first of two no-cost kitchen projects I’ve completed so far. I showed you my picture frame cabinet re-do yesterday and love how they turned out. When the pictures are up in the frames, I like to have the area above the cabinets plain so that all the focus is on the pictures. But … Read more Pretty-ing Up Above The Cabinets
I’ve been working on this post for a few weeks and it just keeps getting longer and longer—too long, actually. So I’ve broken it into a few smaller posts to hopefully make it easier to read and track our progress throughout this year. So for this first post, I’ll walk you through my living room … Read more You have to start somewhere
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I debated posting this since it’s so last minute, but here’s a quick and easy idea for those of you spending tonight at home with family like we are.

Anybody else really sick of winter? Tired of being buried by snow, sleet, rain, hail, biting winds and miserable cold? Yeah. So are my kids. They’ve been off track for two and half weeks now and this cold snap isn’t helping. We’ve been to the museums, played the board games, colored the pictures, watched the … Read more Boredom Busters: Rock The Box!
(UPDATE: You can see a VIDEO how-to of this project HERE!) I have a love/hate relationship with girls tights. I love dressing up my daughters in pretty dresses, nylons and clippies. I hate that my daughters to this to the thin, regular nylons on the very first wear: I love it when my daughters pair funky tights and loud skirts and … Read more Make Your Own Girls Tights!
Have you seen all those cute heart trees floating around Blogland? I’ve been looking forward to making one, too, since I made my holiday planter back in November.
