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…

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…

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…

Yarn-Wrapped Christmas Trees

A few months ago — well, who really knows how long ago it was since we’ve lost all sense of time — but anyway, at some point in the past, I saw some cute Christmas trees somewhere during a Pinterest search and the idea suddenly popped back into my head about two weeks ago. The…

Christmas Sock Ornaments

It’s a rainy Sunday here in hot and humid south Florida, so I thought I’d share a quick and very easy Christmas craft that I think you’re going to love. We’ve all seen the Christmas Sock Snowmen, but how about a Christmas Sock Ornament or two, or more? Supplies: Christmas socks, 3-inch embroidery hoops, ribbon,…

Looped Yarn Winter Scarf

I know, I know — what the heck am I doing “knitting” a scarf in the dead heat of summer? I don’t really have an answer other than, “I had the yarn, so I made the scarf.” If you’ve been reading my blog or if you’re a friend or family member, you know my husband…

Friendship Wreath Inspired by Hazlett Winery

Life was meant for good friends and great adventures. As we get older, it’s likely that the most prominent memories are those that involve times spent with friends. Whether it was a good time out, a good time in, or simply a good time, those fun and adventurous memories will last a lifetime. Even when…

Clay Pot Holiday Candy Jar

I’m amazed that my Crafting Sistas, after more than nine-years, are still coming up with fun, creative, and useful crafting ideas. You’d think that after more than 108-months together, we’d have done it all by now! Just in case you don’t already know, a little more than nine-years ago, I invited 10 friends into my…

Mom’s Tea Towels and Sweaters Become Holiday Pillow Envelopes

If I were to post a photo of all the decorative pillows I have, you’d either have me committed or have my husband sainted. I store them in every nook and cranny, in every closet, out in the garage — all over the place. Decorative pillows are the easiest and fastest way to “redecorate” a…
