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…

Mini Clay Pot and Grapevine Wreath

It’s been quite a while since I sat down to my blog and created something. I’ve spent the past nearly five-months in isolation and crafting, crafting, crafting — but, I’ve been posting to a variety of Facebook groups rather than my blog. My bad!! I wrote a story on Feb. 10th about how I had…

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…

Flag T-Shirt

My husband and I love getting away for weekends of camping. Some don’t consider our little trailer to be camping – more like glamping to them. But anyway you look at it, we’re away, we’re together, and we’re enjoying life. We’ve just spent the past four weekends camping and, frankly, relishing the quiet. But once…

Simple Porch Cushion Cover

I love decorating my front porch. It’s small, so it has to have impact. Every June 1 I decorate inside and outside in red, white, and blue – and, of course, this year is no different. I keep a red-ish cushion on the wicker settee, and I used to go to the trouble of making…

Wooden ‘Firecrackers’

For the next four weekends, my husband and I will be camping. It’s not far from home, so we’ll be able to go right from work on Fridays and stay until late afternoon on Sundays — relaxing and enjoying the Florida sun. Of course, for me, relaxing and decompressing also means crafting. So, I’ve put…

Quick and Easy Wreath

My husband is in the middle of relocating his business, so I’ve taken a bit of a break from crafting. He’s an Horologist; a clockmaker. And after 31-years in the same location, he has hundreds of thousands (okay, that might be just a bit of an exaggeration – but not by much) of clock movements…

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 — but 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…

Pineapple Door/Wall Decor

Last night’s Craft Night with my Sistas was all about the pineapple. Did you know the pineapple is recognized as a traditional expression of “welcome” throughout the South and in areas along the Eastern Seaboard. Appearing on all sorts of décor – from door knockers to quilts – the fruit symbolizes those intangible assets we…

Patriotic Clothespin Wreath

I’m so excited to share this craft with you, because it’s one that I received from my Box Buddy. “What’s that?” you say? Well, a Box Buddy is someone you exchange the makings for a craft with. (I know, bad grammar.) And, that someone is from another area of the country. My Box Buddy is…

Ribbon and Rag Flag

Not For The Faint of Heart I’m no artist, but I do love learning new art-forms and new crafting techniques. So, when I saw a photo of a new twist on an American flag, I knew I wanted to make one. (It’s that time of year.) I looked online for instructions, but all I could find…
