DIY Giant Teacher's Pencil

This was a fun project to do as a teacher’s gift. I had seen a few fellow crafters doing something similar on a crafters forum I’m in, only they were purchasing their pencils and doing the entire thing with vinyl (vinyl pink, silver, yellow and black). I wanted to try it from scratch and with […]

Kitchen Before And After Photo

For my birthday, my mom helped me add some style to my kitchen/dining room combo. It was time to add color to the walls in this uniformed neutral painted home. Because our kitchen and dining room share a wall, we decided that would be the painted accent wall. I wanted something that would pop, but […]

For a month or so, we were really on a decor kick around the house. I was really excited to take an idea I had and run with it with the help of birthday gift cards. I knew I wanted a large family initial and pictures of the family surrounding it. I wasn’t expecting it […]

how to make a huge number prop

With my daughter’s first birthday coming up, I started thinking up ideas for her 1 year photo shoot.

Do you remember my Toilet Paper Roll Holders I made from an empty formula can? Well I’ve done it again! These empty formula cans come in handy in so many ways! This time, I’ve created a large utensil holder using the empty can and (Free) paint sticks from a local hardware store.    1. Remove […]

Hashtag Menu Board

We are a social media family. Between being a blogger myself and my husband being an e-commerce marketer, we are no strangers to Facebook or Twitter (or any other social media site). A while back I did a vinyl decor spoof with Facebook flair. I still love it, and it is still on our wall in the loft. […]
