Tiny Bunny Cloche

If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you surely know that I enjoy decorating my home for each season, holiday, birthday, and whatever else comes up. Thanks to Dollar Tree, I’m able to do so at nearly every whim and at very little cost. Last year I went all in for…

Lavender and White Easter

Last year I used yellow teamed with black and white polka dots as my colors for my spring/Easter decor. I loved it. But I also really appreciate that, while I’m still full-time employed, I can switch up my holiday and seasonal decor (mostly thanks to Dollar Tree putting a location only a mile away). The…

Spring in Black, Yellow, and White

Last night I wrote about how much I enjoy trying to come up with new color schemes and new decor for the house each Spring. Isn’t it funny where you can draw your inspiration? Back in very early February I bought some white and yellow silk flowers to arrange. I was already thinking ahead to…

Easter Spoons

I’ve always loved Spring time and trying to come up with new and different decorating ideas. It’s always a fresh start. I actually made these wooden spoons about two weeks ago, but haven’t been inclined to sit down with my computer and write — about anything. But tonight, as my husband and I celebrate good…

Wood Block Bunnies

Giving props where props are due — I saw this project (or something very similar) while nosing through Etsy, about a year ago. I thought these bunnies were the cutest and decided to make my own. This is a very simple project, and you can even bring in the kids and/or grands. I’m sure they’d…

Deco Mesh Wreath

The Deco Mesh Wreath seems to frighten many crafters, including me. Afraid of the possible mess from the fraying of the mesh, I had never made one — until this past August when my knee jerk reaction to losing my sister was to lock myself in my craft room and become one with my “stuff.”…

Pastel Frosted Mason Jars

From my blog Always on My Mind on April 26, 2013 We worked, we laughed, we had lots of fun! A crafter’s poem…. Crafters are a funny bunch, We’d rather craft than eat our lunch. The housework, it can always wait. It will be there on some other date. No craft is left to be…

Clay Pot Bunny Butt

My mother would, even at my ripe old age of 63, be very disappointed in me for using the word “butt” in this title. lol Remember Winnie The Pooh? One of Pooh’s misadventures was getting stuck in Rabbit’s hole. Rabbit tries to push and push and can’t get Pooh out. Well, consider this craft being Rabbit indulging…

Clay Pot Chickadee

This is something you can enjoy with your children or grandchildren — or in my case — I enjoyed with my father while he was in nursing home care because of Alzheimer’s disease. Spending quality time with family is a rewarding experience, the benefits of which pay off for years to come. Spending time with…
