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…

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…

Reupholstered Camping Cushions

I love going camping. I love the smell of the outdoors, to cook over a firepit, to play outdoor games, to hike, and to sit quietly and listen to the forest voices. Oh, and the campfire. I love to sit around a campfire and let that aroma permeate my hair and my clothes. I always…

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…

Wire Pumpkin Wreath

Anyone who’s known me for more than a day, knows I love Fall — the scents, the colors, the food, the air, the pumpkins — all of it. But I live in South Florida and it’s pretty difficult to distinguish the difference between Summer and Fall. So, I have to go with the flow and…

Ooey Gooey Cake

Before we learned we had been exposed to COVID-19, we hadn’t gone grocery shopping. So, during this quarantine after being tested and waiting for results, we’ve not had any sweet snacks. Well, I just couldn’t take it anymore. After dreaming about my mom’s Ooey Gooey Cake last night (dreams that I’m sure were brought on…

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,…
