I love vintage Christmas trees and ornaments, but they can often be quite pricey and with curious cats around, it’s just asking for those precious relics to be shattered. Instead I created some DIY mid-century atomic starburst inspired ornaments using foam and toothpicks. They’re fairly simple to construct and you can customize them to fit your color theme. And if you’re a last minute Christmas shopper like me.. they come… Keep Reading
If you’ve ever taken a gander at Pinterest then you’ve no doubt seen the billion and one ways to re-purpose a wooden pallet. Thankfully I’ve got a step-dad that knows what he’s doing when it comes to building and after just showing him a few photos of the vertical herb garden ideas I found, we were able to put together two pallets with shelves for my herbs to grow in….

Can we first address “cozie” versus “coozie?” Maybe it’s based on where you grew up that determines which word you use, but I have forever called it a coozie, so I’m sorry you cozie lovers! Regardless of word choice, I think we can all agree that it’s of the utmost importance to keep your beer cold and your hand warm. Combining my love of beer, flannel, and no-sew projects, I… Keep Reading
I’m not sure why, but I’ve always been obsessed with over-sized old man sweaters. They’re big, cozy, and just make you want to snuggle up in front of a fire on chilly days. I purchased one from the thrift store about a year ago, but it didn’t fit very well so I decided to turn it into a cute pillow instead! I made a big pumpkin patch (ALL pun intended)… Keep Reading

She has snuggled on my lap and absorbed many tears of mine when I had no one else, she’s gone through 9 moves with me, and was my cross-country companion when I drove from Iowa to Oregon. She just turned 14 yesterday… Keep Reading
I’m not exactly sure when foam stamps started disappearing from the craft store aisles, but apparently it’s just not “cool” anymore. After searching everywhere I could think of and still not finding much of a selection, I decided to just make my own! I was worried that they would turn out a little wonky looking being homemade and all, but they worked perfectly and I was able to create a… Keep Reading
After getting all of my Halloween décor up in our home, I realized we didn’t have a whole lot of decorations in our bedroom. I decided to add a fun little throw pillow to our bed so we would always have an eerie October moon! It’s an inexpensive and unique way to add some spooky charm to your home! Follow my step-by-step tutorial to make your own!
With parties and my birthday looming, I thought I would create a simple triangle fabric banner to hang above the bar (thrift store tea-cart turned bar that is) using scrap fabric leftover from other projects. It’s easy, customizable, and you can make them for any event or holiday!
Refillable Catnip Heart Toy Most of us treat our pets like little fur children and that’s totally okay, so long as you don’t have 24 cats, never change out of your bathrobe, and you dress them up.. With Valentine’s Day coming up I thought it would be fun to make something for Punk and since a friend just gave us a HUGE bag of catnip, I couldn’t think of anything more perfect!… Keep Reading
