Reclaimed Wood Table

My neighbor removed part of their fence and had a pile of old wood that they said I could raid at will, I of course took them up on this.  I really wanted to make a table for outside out of reclaimed wood. I can assure you it took much longer than I though it … Continue reading

I Survived Spring Break!

Last week was Spring Break and I am not going to lie it was a long (long, very long) week.  The first three days went off smoothly because it was beautiful outside then came the rain.  It rained for almost three days, I love rain just not during Spring Break.  We did quite a few … Continue reading

Mustache Heart Earrings

I have admitted time and time again I do not like Valentine’s Day but this year I am okay with it.  Why?  I have no idea but I did create myself some fun earrings this weekend from a cereal box.  I promise they are made from a cereal box, they are extremely light and very … Continue reading

Heart Wreath

I am going to be honest I really don’t like Valentine’s Day but the Princess has been bugging me to make some Valentine’s Day stuff for out house.  I decided I wanted to make a wreath which is also funny because I am not the biggest wreath fan unless it is for Christmas.  I also … Continue reading

12 Upcycled Ornaments of Christmas | Day 9

I was suppose to have Day 8 but Dawn was awesome enough to switch because I did the Steampunk Blog Hop.  This project I had help with (lots of help).  Booga loves Angry Birds, I thought it would be a great project for us to do together.

Puppet Supply Box

We have been frequenting the library quite a bit this summer and one of the books I checked out was, “Simple Puppets from Everyday Materials” by Barbara MacDonald Buetter.  I thought this would be fun to make one or two puppets with the Princess, I had not planned on making every puppet in the book … Continue reading

Testing Natural Make-up

Testing Natural Make-up

A couple months ago I posted about how I got rid of ALL my makeup.  I have been officially make-up free for 3 months which leads me to my recent dilemma, I need makeup for Friday, for my daughter’s awards ceremony.  I hunted for a recipe even though I do have mica powder I really … Continue reading
