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…

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…

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…

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…

Flip Flop Wreath

Sorry, I’ve been MIA since the holidays, but I had such a fabulous day today that I thought I’d keep my happiness going and pull out some stuff to craft. This is actually similar to a wreath I made last summer, but it bares revisiting with one important change — which I’ll be sure to…

Old Chair Planter

I love bringing old stuff back to life. That’s kind of where I am in my own life right now — the realization of soon hitting 65 is weighing heavy on my mind. My friends at Sister’s, Too, a fabulous re-purpose, up-cycle store in the town where I live, do that very thing for a…

Critter Clay Pots

I have one just like that! Isn’t it a riot when someone says, “I have one just like that —┬ábut it’s different.”? I crack up every time I hear it. But today, while browsing at Sams’ Club, I saw something that made me say (in my head), “I have something just like that.” In all…

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…
