Tiny Bunny Planters

Out of all the cuties I’ve made for this Spring season, I think these little cuties are my new favorite. In full disclosure, each time I make something new, it becomes my new favorite. But these!! OMG!! I’m so inspired by Spring, seeing it as an annual passage into new beginnings. My most creative moments…

Decopage Tray

Tonight, along with writing about the Crafting Sistas project of the month, I want to touch on the concept of “hygge.” I learned about the concept in 2016 when my husband and I were lucky enough to visit Denmark. It was such a beautiful experience. Everyone was so friendly, smiling, so happy all the time….

Heart Vine Wreath

As far back as the ancient Greeks, the human heart has been associated with emotion; pleasure, love, hate, rage, etc. As far back as I can remember, I’ve had a love-relationship with vine wreaths. In fact, one year during the craft festival season (in the late 1980s), my girlfriend and I made dozens of wreaths from the Confederate Jasmine…

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…

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…

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,…

String Art Pumpkin

I use this space to tell you about my crafting adventures, but I use crafting as my form of  therapy. We all have “stuff” going on in our lives, right? For me, it all comes to a boil each August and September. My mother passed away on Sept. 26, and that loss changed my life…

Camping and Crafting

Two of my favorite things to do — camping and crafting. And when I can do them together, I’ve hit the jackpot. In most of the country, folks only have the summer months to enjoy the outdoors, but here in sunny F L A, we have all year. So, what’s normally just a summer activity…

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…
