Plastic Tray with Wood Base

Ya’ll! I think you are going to love this idea. I sure do. In fact, it’s one of my all-time favorites (today – ha ha). This was a bright pink plastic tray, made to look like wicker, that I bought at Dollar Tree. I saw potential and decided to give it a make-over. Supplies Other…

No-Sew Dollar Tree Bath Mat Pillows

Yep, you read that right. I’m turning five Dollar Tree bath mats into two pillows for my family room. And there’s no sewing. We’ve all seen the textured pillows that are trending today, right? They’re beautiful. In fact, just like today, we had textured pillows, macrame’ wall-hangings, textured sofas, and more back in the 1970s….

2 for the Price of 1 – Color Block and Faux Window Frame

In light of today’s both horrible and historic events, I have retreated to my “Studio Sydney,” which is always where I go to heal. I know that most of the world is sitting in front of their televisions tonight, but I just can’t see nor hear anymore. For me, it’s time to craft, write, and…

Buffalo Plaid Petal Wreath with Rose Center

I love this wreath! My girlfriend made this one for me. Isn’t it beautiful? She’s an incredible friend; one I know would drop everything and come to me in need, although she lives across the state from me. I’m so lucky to have a friend in her. A couple months after she sent the beautiful…

Christmas Tree Center Piece

As usual, I have so many projects going at one time, which, in my opinion, isn’t necessarily a bad thing. All of them are for Christmas, but some are specifically to take camping so I can decorate our campsite. This project is going to serve a dual purpose, all of it will sit on my…

Holiday Gnome

I’ll be the first one to admit that this next project can hardly be called crafting. But I have taken something and made it better (in my book), so that sorta’ constitutes crafting — or perhaps embellishing at the very least. I purchased these items at a dollar type store while on vacation in Asheville,…

Decoupage Signs

I think I can say with 100-percent certainty that we are all waning from the affects of all that is now just simply known as The Infamous 2020 — a year that will most certainly go down in the history books as one of the most perplexing, confusing, intense, and downright disturbing years in the…

Reupholstered Camping Cushions

I love going camping. I love the smell of the outdoors, to cook over a firepit, to play outdoor games, to hike, and to sit quietly and listen to the forest voices. Oh, and the campfire. I love to sit around a campfire and let that aroma permeate my hair and my clothes. I always…

Whimsical Santa

How cute is this little whimsical Santa? I’ve been in a bit of a funk these past few days; something I go through (and always will) each year at this time. But this stinkin’ cute Santa is enough to nearly bring everyone out of a funk. Right? And it’s something different for me. I’m always…

Wire Pumpkin Wreath

Anyone who’s known me for more than a day, knows I love Fall — the scents, the colors, the food, the air, the pumpkins — all of it. But I live in South Florida and it’s pretty difficult to distinguish the difference between Summer and Fall. So, I have to go with the flow and…

Ooey Gooey Cake

Before we learned we had been exposed to COVID-19, we hadn’t gone grocery shopping. So, during this quarantine after being tested and waiting for results, we’ve not had any sweet snacks. Well, I just couldn’t take it anymore. After dreaming about my mom’s Ooey Gooey Cake last night (dreams that I’m sure were brought on…

Decorative Christmas Top-Hat

I happened upon a video tutorial for this project a few weeks ago when I was surfing through Facebook. I have so many crafting supplies, which is what I stocked up on (not toilet paper or beef or masks or hand sanitizer or Lysol spray) back in March when it became evident that stores would…
