Designer Vase – Dollar Tree Price

Vase - Front page

Love designer vases, but not the price? (Sounds like a pitch I know *smile*). Head over to your local Dollar Tree and purchase some glass vases. Using craft paint (I used left over outdoor craft paint), pour some into the vase and twirl the vase around (using your hands) to get the paint to move. […]

“Bubble Bubble Toil & Trouble”

My coworkers have encouraged me to explore jewelry making, so I’ve been experimenting with necklace pendants using Fimo clay. My wonderful neighbor Emi volunteered to model my first creation, which is a two-leafed pendant with a purple “spiky” flower.  It’s my attempt at making a Chrysanthemum, which was accomplished by “rolling” the clay into small […]

Patio chairs need some help over time especially with wear and tear use, so instead of throwing the chairs out I restored them using some fabric from Hobby Lobby. Unscrew the cushion (if applicable) and using a staple gun, staple the fabric onto the cushion.  Trim the excess fabric and staple down any loose ends […]

Sink Trick

With Mother’s Day coming up, I wanted to share one of the first household tricks my mother taught me when I moved out. Vinegar and baking soda = bubbly cleany stuff. This “foam” is natural, green, and dedorizes, cleans, kills bug eggs, plus removes rust. Simply sprinkle baking soda around the drain, and then “wash” […]
